Túró Rudi

Túró Rudi is one of my favorite Hungarian desserts since my childhood.
Wikipedia says:
Túró Rudi is the name of a chocolate bar popular in Hungary. The bar is composed of a thin outer coating of chocolate and an inner filling of Quark. The "Rudi" in the product name comes from the Hungarian "rúd", which translates to bar. It is also a nickname for "Rudolf" The "pöttyös" (spotty or spotted) theme is part of the marketing scheme of the bar, and the distinctive red polka-dots are readily associated with Túró Rudi by regular consumers. Friesland Hungária, Inc. (which claims to be the manufacturer of the "original" Túró Rudi) released its product in Slovakia, Romania, Spain and Italy under the name DOTS in 2003. The version sold in Western Europe is said to be sweeter and comes with a milk chocolate coating to suit the taste of locals..

I love the fact that if you ask any Hungarians from our generation who have emigrated, what the product that they miss most from home is, they almost always say 'Turo Rudi'.
