tickled pink

miss iggy and the carriage

While Euro Iggy was hanging out near St. Stephen’s Cathedral, she spotted this cute pink carriage. Carriages are quite a normal sight in Vienna’s city center; these tourist attractions give tours of the city proper the old-fashioned way. This pretty carriage is sponsored by Manner, an Austrian brand of confectionery, most famous for Manner Schnitten or Manner Neapolitan Wafers. Manner Wafers are hazelnut cream-filled wafers. The hazelnuts were originally imported from Naples, Italy, thus the name “Neapolitan wafers.“


Fun fact: Manner wafers are actor governator Austria’s most famous import Arnold Schwarzenegger’s favorite snack and even made a cameo appearance in his movie Terminator 3!

Euro Iggy thinks they’re lecker (German word for yummy), but they’re oh-so-messy to eat!
