Lebkuchen (gingerbread) hearts are a traditional part of Oktoberfest. They offer something for everyone. With these tasty hearts, lovers can ‘subtly’ share lovely, intimate expressions (e.g. ‘I love you,’ ‘Oktoberfest babe’) or say what needs to be said (‘beer please,’ ‘kiss me,’ ‘not picky’).
Just try to avoid buying hearts that use apostrophes, because few people have mastered proper use of apostrophes.
If you are buying a heart for a love interest, don’t be too clever, as that can backfire. It’s better to choose a small, charming heart with something nice on it like ‘sweetie.’ You can’t go wrong and everyone wins.
