Re: luxemburgerli

As previously mentioned, yes. There's a big Sprungli shop in the main terminal on your right-hand side just after you pass through the boarding pass control. They sell the full range of Sprungli products, including Luxemburgerli

No chance. There's no way that Sprungli, having paid a fortune for a counter in the middle of the airport would consider selling their trademark Luxemburgli.

I guess you're all out of luck.

In fact, there are three Sprünglis at the airport. At least one of them is in the duty-free area after boarding pass check, so you can definitely get them.

Unless the US declares them to be a liquid…

I hate when someone beats me to it. Still, I am going to do you one better.

Re: luxemburgerli

I've purchased them at the Zurich airport after security and taken them to the USA no problem. Just make sure you eat them (share them) as soon as you arrive because they're only yummy for about 24 hours. Then they start to get stale. For me going to the Northwest, it's been at least 20 hours since I bought them by the time I arrive.

How dare you make such a disparaging comparison! Have you no idea about the years of craft that have gone in to the development of Zurich's finest confisery house. Years of research to ensure the perfect blend of refined - in all possible senses of the word - sugar rush with flavour and texture?

(Yes)

Re: luxemburgerli

Yihan, if you buy at Sprungli's, they have special tiny boxes for four Luxemburgerli. Sold by weight at the same price as the larger boxes, but a nice treat sometimes!

Who makes the best ones are a subject of regular and intense debate at our work. There were some cool stories about taste-tests when Laduree entered the Swiss market awhile ago in NZZ and Tagi.
