At World of Snacks we are getting ready to expand our international snack store to include snacks from Germany. Each month this year we are adding a new country and their best cookies, cakes, chocolates, and candies to our inventory. So far this year we’ve launched our British Snack Shop and our American Snack Store. Although most of our German Snacks are on the way to our Florida headquarters we are still searching for additional items to include in our selection of German Snacks online.
The snack we are reviewing today is Wicklein Brown Gingerbread (Lebkuchen). Wicklein is the oldest snack company we have encountered from anywhere in the world, they have traced their origins as far back as 1615! This German snack company has seen a lot change over the years, and even had to rebuild their factories after World War II. One thing has remained the same through out their expanded history; they’ve always made gingerbread! So lets take a look at Wicklen’s Lebkuchen.
From our research and this festive packaging, we have been able to deduce that this is a German Christmas snack. Very fitting, since it is gingerbread- or is it? Although Leckuchen is similar to gingerbread, it’s actually subtly different, and very old as well. German monks invented this snack back in the 13th century! Well, we hope our sample is a little fresher. Overall the packaging is fun, it depicts a traditional German home and includes images of children playing in the snow, a snow covered Christmas-like tree, and a snowman. Now we are in the holiday spirit, let’s give these heart-shaped cookies a taste.
Will World of Snacks offer the Wicklein Brown Gingerbread (Lebkuchen) for sale online when Germany is added to our inventory? The answer is no. We enjoyed the snack, but it’s a seasonal item and our German Snacks will be offered starting in the early spring. We will however consider the Wicklein Lebkuchen on a limited run around the holidays. If you are searching for German snacks for sale in the US (with worldwide shipping) we invite you to leave your details to the right. We will send you a special offer when our full inventory is online. Keep on snacking world!
