Sweet success for over 100 years
The Basler Läckerli Original is the flagship product of Läckerli Huus and has been a sweet success story for over 100 years. The young André Klein from the Bernese Oberland region joined a Basel confectionery as a partner in 1903 and took over the business a year later. Basler Läckerli were an integral part of the product range from the very beginning and they are still manufactured according to the same unchanged, original recipe to this very day. The finest ingredients, selected according to the
strictest criteria, such as honey, almonds, hazelnuts, candied orange and lemon peel, superior spices and some Baselbieter Kirsch, form the basis of this Läckerli Huus classic.
With an awareness of the potential advertising impact, André Klein began very early on to package his specialities in painted biscuit tins. This has remained true to this day. Every year, particularly at Christmas time, Läckerli Huus surprises its customers with new, decorative gift and collectors' tins.
The traditional art of confectionery and a variety of shopping options
The highest standards of quality, right from the selection of the raw materials to the packaging and presentation in the stores, form the basis of our activities. The careful production of our specialities by our confectioner is not only achieved through application of the greatest expertise but also with a lot of love and passion.
Our products are produced and packaged in Frenkendorf near Basel, with much of the work being carried out by hand. The various Läckerli Huus specialities are sold in our own sales outlets throughout Switzerland. In recent years, our easy and convenient methods of ordering via our online shop, via our telephone order service or using our order form have become increasingly popular. Some of our favourite classics can also be found in retail stores.

We place particular importance on providing a large selection of gift packagings, such as gift tins and assorted packages in which the different Läckerli Huus specialities can be put together.
