ZÜRICH | Confiserie Sprüngli is a Swiss confectionery manufacturer that’s been making chocolate and treats since 1836. You might recognise the name as one half of Lindt & Sprüngli. This was the chocolate making part of the original business that was split off in 1899.
Confiserie Sprüngli are well known for their high quality chocolate, truffles and Luxemburgeli. Luxemburgerli were created by a Luxembourg-born Sprüngli confectioner in 1957 and have since become the chocolatier’s flagship product. They’re essentially a mini macaron, but lighter and more airy in texture than a macaron. They’re made daily using fresh ingredients and designed to be eaten on the day. The classic flavours are fantastic – chocolate and raspberry deluxe are my two favourite, and the rotating monthly seasonal flavour is always well worth a try too. You can tell that the ingredients are fresh because the flavours actually taste like the real fruit.
At the flagship cafe and store on Paradeplatz, you can enjoy your treats with coffee or tea or something more substantial. The Confectioner’s Brunch Buffet, which consists of home-made bread, fresh preserves, and Sprüngli Bircher muesli, is popular, as are the tiered breakfast combination dishes. For lunch, it’s things like tartare, club sandwiches, burgers, soups and salads.
