Magen brot

Frankfurt sweet stall We were in an Aldi supermarket today when we came across bags of German ginger biscuits, including the spiced ginger "magen brot". We had to buy a bag!

While in Frankfurt in 2004 we visited the Friday night street market/beer garden and stopped by the sweet stall pictured on the right. Convinced by the stall owner to try some magen brot we liked it enough to buy a bag. Initially we thought that he had given us too much, but then I found myself compulsively eating square after square of the ginger bread. My only regrets were not buying more and that it generates a fair amount of internal gas!
