Gottlieber Hüppen: flavour-filled

Anyone asking for Hüppen in Switzerland means only one thing: the crispy wafer rolls from Gottlieben on Lake Constance. The Gottlieber company has been making them here since 1928, and now produces eleven million of the little delicacies every year. Each Hüppe is baked by hand, rolled like a cigar, and then given a chocolate or amaretto filling.
