Cuberdon ©

The cuberdon, also known as neuzeke, tsoepke or Gentse neus because of its resemblance to a nose, is a typical sweet from East Flanders made by Confiserie Geldhof.

The cuberdon has to be eaten fresh, otherwise the shell becomes too crispy. That's why the sweet is only found in Belgium, and why Confiserie Geldhof has developed an array of products with the same taste as the cuberdons, from syrup to jenever.

You can find cuberdons in candy shops across Flanders and Brussels, but possibly the most fun is to buy them from the open-air cart piled high with the triangle-shaped candy every weekend in Ghent's Groentenmarkt.
