Chatzestreckerli Classic - A true Lucerne speciality with honey, almond and a hint of apricot flavour.
Who are these "Chatzestrecker" ("cat stretchers")? Like the people of Bern are in the vernacular called "Mutzen", the people of Basel "Bebbi" and the ones of Zurich "Hegel" - the people of Lucerne are jokingly called "Chatzestrecker". Historians give the following explanation for this nickname: shortly before arriving at their pilgrimage site Einsiedeln, the religious people of Lucerne hat to cross a mountain ridge called "Chatzestrick" ("cat rope") and over time "Chatzestrick" turned into their nickname "Chatzestrecker" ("cat stretchers"). Arguably because people thought that the people of Lucerne are probably not at all as religious as they made it seem. However, guaranteed is that the taste of Lucerne Chatzestreckerli is heavenly. Nowadays the people of Lucerne are associated with all the likable cat-like characteristics like their cleverness, their soft spot for cuddling... or their exquisite taste in selected delicacies. Confiseur Bachmann's imaginative and tasty Chatzestreckerli are the sum of all of Lucerne's positive cat-like characteristics - a true Lucerne speciality with honey, almond and a hint of apricot flavour. The fine Florentine biscuit is lovingly created by our confectioners in the heart of Lucerne, in our shop at the Schwanenplatz. Clients can see the noble ingredients and the elaborate production for themselves. The smell of caramel nougat is carried into the small alleys of Lucerne's old town. The Lucerne Chatzestreckerli are an ideal souvenir and suited for travelling without any problems. Order online or by phone. We are happy to organise the mailing for you.
