Belgium: The Geometric, Iconic Cuberdon

Belgium

Called alternatively “noses” or “preists’ hats” for their distinctive shape, the Belgian cuberdon is certainly eye-catching. Waxy, burgundy and shaped like a cone, the cuberdon is traditionally filled with sweet raspberry syrup, though other colors and flavors are now available. Due to its popularity and longevity, cuberdons have been named one of the official cultural foods of Belgium. Despite its popularity in Belgium , the cuberdon is mostly known outside of the country since they have no preservatives, and are tough to transport and store. Moroever, the production process is quite intense. So if you want to enjoy this taste of Belgium you’ll likely have to visit!
