Caëderkükske is one of Tongerens most famous treats. This tasty coconut shortbread from Tongeren is shaped like the Dodecahedron, a mysterious Roman object with 12 pentagonal surfaces. You can find an original Roman example at the Gallo-Roman Museum
Tongerse moppen have been popular here since the 18th century. The people of Tongeren baked these aniseed, honey and candy sugar flavoured biscuits at New Year, Shrove Tuesday and other holidays. This regional speciality fell out of favour for many years until it was revived in 1981.
Ambiorix speculaas biscuits
Its no secret that speculaas is very popular in this part of the world. And as a tribute to our local superhero who bravely defeated the Romans, we like to bake these biscuits with his image on them. Each packet has 11 biscuits.
Nowadays, you can do more than just admire Ambiorixs heroic deeds: you can also literally sink your teeth into the king of the Eborones. Our local hero has been immortalised in milk and fondant chocolate a creamy praline filling. Each stylish box contains 20 chocolates.
