Kopernik Torunskie Pierniki Mini Chocolate Covered Hearts in Red/Blue Lantern Tins
Kopernik Toruńskie Pierniki Mini Chocolate Covered Hearts in Red/Blue Lantern Tins contain mini dark chocolate covered gingerbread hearts. These hearts have a unique taste which is the result of using a considerable amount of natural spices in specially kneaded, fat-free dough and then covered in rich chocolate.
"Pierniki" (gingerbread) is derived from the Polish word "pieprz", meaning packed with peppery flavor. Traditional pierniki are soft when they first come out of the oven and harden after that. The cookies should be kept in a metal or airtight container to soften.
NOTE: Please specify the color tin (Red or Blue) you prefer in the Special Instructions section on the cart page. Please be advised that we will do our best to provide you with your choice, as long as that color tin is available.
Toruńskie Pierniki® (Toruń Gingerbread) - the most characteristic symbol of Toruń, Poland that has been known and appreciated throughout centuries all over the world. It has continuously been produced for over 700 years, with the first mention of its baking dating to 1380. Toruńskie Pierniki®, the only genuine one, is a unique product solely manufactured in the Confectionery Factory "Kopernik" (named after Nicolaus Copernicus, the city's native son). Strictly guarded, traditional recipes (the technique of dough kneading, a rich mixture of natural spices), the use of high quality ingredients in production, and, above all, people who for hundreds of years with undiminished enthusiasm and engagement have been taking care of the uniqueness of their product - these are the factors that make Toruńskie Pierniki® so exceptional.
