German Tins with Tasty Treats

A Christmas vacation in Germany some years ago introduced me to tins filled with lebkuchen (gingerbread), a traditional German Christmas treat; I still have the one I received as a gift. Now I'm noticing that a number of these available on-line. You get something good to eat plus a reusable storage container.

Haeberlein-Metzger has a number of choices, including the one shown above. Update on Nov. 27, 2009: The tins change every year, so this specific one is probably no longer available.

Schmidt makes some nice tins - and this one is even a music box. (Novala at Lost in Transit thinks Schmidt makes the best gingerbread in the world.)

Lambertz also makes some wonderful tins, including this truck and some clock tins. Update on Nov. 27, 2009: I no longer see the clock tins.

And Asbach Uralt makes a couple of oval tins. Update on Nov. 27, 2009: This tin holds chocolates, not lebkuchen.
