Which anybody will tell you are made from something between cake and gingerbread, thick jam, and marzipan almond paste, layered, cubed and coated with chocolate. They are popular in Germany at Christmas. They are also popular here with those who have tried them, and are often available in the shops. But not in the last twelve months. They were nowhere to be seen.
Anybody know why? Has the bakery burnt down? Was there so much demand in Germany that there were too few to cross the channel?
