Get ready to celebrate Oktoberfest in style with these adorable gingerbread hearts! Available in three different sizes, each heart comes threaded with a ribbon so you can wear them proudly at any event. But did you know that there’s more to these festive treats than meets the eye?



Oktoberfest, the world’s largest beer festival, is just around the corner and people are getting ready to celebrate! While there are plenty of reasons to go out and enjoy all that Oktoberfest has to offer, perhaps one of the most popular traditions is the giving of gingerbread hearts. These delicious treats come in various shapes and sizes, but it’s the large heart-shaped gingerbread cookies that truly steal the show.

In fact, gingerbread hearts have a long and storied history that dates back centuries. Originally created as a way for medieval bakers to show off their skills, these sweet treats quickly became associated with celebrations and holidays of all kinds. And now, thanks to this tradition, you can enjoy your very own large, medium or  small gingerbread heart at any Australian Oktoberfest event!
