I spent 7 and a half years in the Bundesrepublik while working for the NSA at Field Station Augsburg. We lived in Pfersee and got our Lebkuchen from Café Schenck, which was the local bakery on the Pfersee side of the river. I've never been able to replicate Herr Schenck's recipe for Lebkuchen. He had special flavors that were his exclusives: Maple, Walnuss, Citronen (multiple zests of lemon, citron, and orange), and others. I feel that Schmidt has the only commercial Lebkuchen that comes close to the fresh taste and tenderness of bakery fresh Lebkuchen. The good news is that the Argentine Bakery in Irving bakes fresh Schweineohren that are perfect! Crisp, buttery, thin, and just like I remember. Schweineohren must be made fresh, they cannot be packed and shipped; they become rubbery and soggy. Between the Festive Chest and the Argentine bakery in Irving, I get everything I remember.
I always try to get one of these chests and send to my Mom in Tennessee. She and I are the only true Germans in the house; born in Germany, and we always appreciate the many items in this chest. My Mom lights up when she receives it and I will continue to order for her until I can't anymore. She is 80 and anything Germandeli that I order for her lifts her spirit.
I have been looking at this chest for years and this year I finally made the purchase. The tin chest was beautifully wrapped and once opened, revealed a gorgeous German lebkuchen treasure chest!! I didn't want to eat the cookies because the presentation was too pretty to disturb! But, glad I did because the cookies were the proverbial icing on the cake! Bravo!!
I am getting the Lebkuchen chest since 1993 and it is always wonderful to open the box. Oh these memories!!!!Absolutely wonderful. Thanks German Deli.
My grandmother sent me this box every Christmas... now, I am sending to my daughter. Love the cookies, the tin... the memories!
There is no Christmas without Lebkuchen I miss Germany every Christmas but German Deli makes it a little easier!
A beautiful ornate tin box with scrumptous goodies that will last forever !
First, this is a great product and worth every penny. Second, German Deli has the absolute best customer service. EVER.
I miss all the german delious candys and gingerbread at christmas time thank you for having all of them I myself are from germany .
Haven't heard my mother so happy since . . . . ever. She left Germany 56 years ago, and this brought back memories of home to her.You can bet on it: this is now a Tradition. Thanks, German Deli.
Every year we order the festive chest in memory of my grandparents from Bremenhaven, Germany.
I get this tin every year!!! The scenes always remind us of places we have visited in Germany. We don't always like all the cookies that come in it, but pass them on to family for the holidays. They really look foward to sharing in our indulgence.
So glad the Festive Chest is back again. I will order this weekend. My family expects a chest every, single year. They say it would not be a REAL Christmas without a chest. After the edibles are eaten, we draw names to see who gets the Keepsake tin.
Lebkuchen from E. Otto Schmidt is THE BEST. I have been getting these chests since I was a kid and had to share with the family. Now they are mine and my collection of the tins is beautiful. My husband gets the chest as a Christmas gift for me each year. YUM!
I am not a big fan of the cookies, but I love these tins! If you have one kicking around, put it up on EBay as I have a search there for the 2010 tin!
This chest of authentic Lebkuchen is just the best. I am born USA, but that doesn't mean I prefer the American overly-sugared US recipes for cookies and cakes. These Lebkuchen offers the perfect balance between spices and sweetness. They are super!!
From the beautifull tin of a German scene to the goodies inside this is a gift that is never dissapointing.
Christmas is impossible in our family without Schmidt Lebkuchen and the arrival of this beautiful tin full of treats heralds the start of the holiday season and brings back fond memories of Christkindelmarkts past. This is my second year ordering from German Deli and your excellent, promt service has made me a repeat customer. FrÃ¶he Weinachten!
This has been a tradition in my family for years. It always brings out the true holiday spirit when I find that package sitting on our doorstep. We always have to be careful not to eat it all before the season is over.
