Unsere Lebkuchenherzen

{Our gingerbread hearts}

On our recent trip to Germany, Boris and I had the pleasure to once again meet up with our Lebkuchenherz {gingerbread heart} supplier, Zuckersucht.

Oktoberfest Brisbane has worked together with Zuckersucht since the 2009 festival, to ensure that we provide the most authentic and best quality Gingerbread hearts to our festival every year. Guten Appetit!


Zuckersucht GmbH was founded in 2000 by Bernd Dostler and is today one of the most innovative and high-performance manufacturers in the sweet promotional product segment in Germany. Their objective was to ensure that their products are quality, hand-made products, that defied the overall approach of mass production, in the sweet promotional gifts industry.

The saying “not possible’, doesn’t exist at Zuckersucht. Unique items are produced and refined every day by the master craftsmen in the finest quality. All production is carried out in the specially designed modern facility, where micro-orders of only one piece are produced along side the production of over 100,000 pieces.


“Our loyal and satisfied customers include very small companies to some of the largest companies in Germany and abroad. They all rely on our individual customer service and products.” – Bernd Dostler

Their popular gingerbread hearts are a classic. In 2009 they introduced a powerful chocolate production, which promised great growth with unique new products. With the strictest hygiene regulations, selected raw materials from the region, including the use of Fairtrade chocolate, seamless traceability and internal quality management, Zuckersucht ensure their customers the best possible quality.

Due to the Zuckersuchts’ high standards, it is no surprise that they have won numerous awards in Germany. Check out our photos from our visit and have a close look you’ll see that they won the Golden Prize for their Lebkuchenherzen {Gingerbread Hearts}!
