Shelf life: we suggest eating our lebkuchen within a few weeks for optimal texture and taste, but as long as you store it in an airtight container and in a cool, dry place, you can continue to enjoy your lebkuchen for many months. Just keep in mind that it will lose moisture over time. You can try to revive lebkuchen that has lost some moisture by placing a piece of sliced apple inside the container for a day or two and then removing it.
The cellophane bags we use are industrially compostable!
My third year ordering from Leckerlee. Simply the best.
My mom was German, emigrating to the US as a young girl in the 30s. Growing up on the South Side of Chicago our family looked forward to the holiday season when the local grocery store would carry lebkuchen baked by the local bakery Ericann - authentic Nuremburg-style lebkuchen. It was a tradition for us and for years after I'd grown and moved out on my own my mom continued to send a tin of Ericann lebkuchen during the winter holiday season. When my mom passed on I wanted to continue the tradition by sending lebkuchen to my brother and sister but, sadly, I discovered that Ericann had closed-up shop. Disappointingly, no other store-bought lebkuchen that I could find in the US even came close to what I knew as lebkuchen - it was more like dry, chocolate-covered gingerbread. Then I stumbled upon Leckerlee and found it to be just like the Ericann I grew up with - authentic Nuremburg-style lebkuchen. So the tradition continues now, with a beautiful tin going to my siblings every year. And, of course, some for my own family. Thank you, Leckerlee, for helping to keep a treasured tradition alive!
Very authentic!!! My husband grew up in Germany and this is the closest to Nurnberg Lebkuchen.
I lived in Germany as a kid and am very fond of the country's various holiday traditions. Leckerlee lebkuchen taste exactly like the ones I used to have in Baden-Württemberg more than 25 years ago. If you're looking for lebkuchen, you can't go wrong — and the tins are elegantly decorated as well. I'm very impressed with Leckerlee across the board.
