Cheezborger! Cheezborger! Luxemburgerli?

A Cheezborger, these are not.

Sweet, delectable, and, well, a little overpriced, but worth a try.

We’ve seen signs for these Luxemburgerli confections in just about every city we’ve visited in Switzerland. One afternoon we were walking through Rail City in Zug, getting bus instructions to see if Zach could catch a ride to his trombone lessons at the local music school. As we walked by the chocolate shop in the station, I noticed Katelyn eye up the multicolored burgers through the window. What can I say, I have a sweet tooth and I’m a sucker for our little latte.

While Kim and Zach consulted with the folks at the ticket desk, Katelyn and I scouted Sprüngli (confiserie). They had some really cool ginger bread houses for sale ($99), a really nice variety of chocolates, and a huge array of … Luxemburgerli.

When Kim and Zach were finished we all walked back to Sprüngli and picked out a box of 16. What’s the sensation all about? They were light, sweet and pretty flavorful. Honestly, they’re not entirely gratifying, but they do keep one coming back for more. Flavors vary from champagne, to coffee, to mandarin, pistachio, strawberry… something for everyone.

Popping them into our mouths, our teeth easily make it through the spongy/crunchy top and bottom, cutting into the soft center. They dissolved in a few seconds. A sweet departure from the ordinary.
