Thanks for your rating
Bern's emblem, the bear, also features in the city's cuisine. For decades, the Bernese have enjoyed Mandelbärli ("almond teddy bears") made from almonds, sugar, butter and egg white, from the confectioner Beck Glatz. They were inspired by the bear dance portrayed on the bell, cast in 1596, of the Holy Spirit Church. Flavours include chocolate, honey and lemon, as well as the classic vanilla.
