Brunch with Geldhof | Testing Cuberdons


When I moved to Belgium I learned about the typical Belgian products the country has to offer. You know, things like thicker fries, different kinds of waffles, loads and loads of chocolate, and so on. I also discovered a sweet treat called "cuberdons" or "neuzekes" that comes from Ghent and is made in Eeklo. So far this has been the only product that I have had in my home to offer my friends and family when they are visiting and want to try something really Belgian!  

So when I got the invite to join a blogger brunch with Geldhof - creator and maker of cuberdons - and try out more cuberdons, I was over the moon. Hold up! I am sure you are thinking by now: what the hell is she talking/writing about? What are cuberdons?! Well, they are candies that come in a conical shape that resembles a nose, hence the name "neuzekes" (translation: noses). It typically comes in purple, has a hard exterior and is gooey/gelatine on the inside. It is super sweet! So if you are a sweet tooth, then you may just love cuberdons! Here is a picture to make it clearer! When I arrived at the brunch we got a nice and fresh cocktail with a cuberdon as garnish.


During the brunch we had the opportunity to try out and review different kinds of cuberdons. We tried cuberdons I had not even heard of before: covered in milk chocolate and fondant chocolate or strawberry and blueberry-flavored cuberdons! I am happy I got to attend, because I discovered my new and favorite cuberdon so far: the original cuberdon dipped in milk chocolate (see picture below). The flavors work nicely together. I am also loving the sneeuwballen (or mini clouds), because they are sweet and milky-chocolate. My favorite kind of candy! I had not even heard of those before.. so now I have another thing to add get when doing the groceries - but not too often.. because my boyfriend (the sweet tooth) will eat it all before we get to share it with company. 


The only thing I am still looking for is the cuberdon syrup. I think that could be delicious in a fancy coffee drink. What can I say?! I am not much of a sweet tooth, but the cuberdons are quite unique so I love sharing these with family and friends. I have already decided to bring some over for some relatives this christmas - let's hope they don't read this - as a sweet gift. How do the cuberdons sound and look to you? Do you know of any local products that you think are worth sharing? Do tell me!

  2. Of course I cant help you out with any local Belgian products, but if you ever visit the area near Frankfurt, make sure to try "Hessischer Apfeltraum", some kind of cake.

  4. Mooie foto's! Ik heb zelf nog nooit neuzekes geprobeerd, maar ik ben ook niet echt een zoetekauw, dus ik denk dat het bij mij proberen zal zijn en dat ik ze daarna niet heel vaak weer zal eten. Dan vind ik Vlaamse frietjes denk ik toch aantrekkelijker haha!
