The tradition of the Carnival and parades have been well-rooted in Alsace for many decades. Hugely influenced by Rhine carnivals, as well as by our Swiss and German friends, Alsace carnivals chase away the winter cold and celebrate the arrival of springtime. A wonderful occasion to celebrate in the streets, dress up, and enjoy crepes, waffles, Schenkele and other Carnival beignets!


Calling all fans of Schenkele and beignets!

From today, Friday 26 January, to 4 March, you'll once again find our beignets and Schenkele (or Schankala) in our stores! Available individually or in sharing packs, you're going to love our Schenkele and beignet range - classic, raspberry, chocolate hazelnut, apple & cinnamon.

Traditionally made for the Carnival, our Schenkele are little beignets made with organic spelt flour, flavoured with Alsace kirsch, and rolled in cinnamon sugar.

As for our beignets, they're delicately flavoured with vanilla and lemon, and are rolled in sugar. They're particularly generously dosed with their fillings (raspberry, chocolate hazelnut, apple & cinnamon). They're perfect alongside a cup of coffee or tea, or as dessert, shared with friends and family… Wonderfully indulgent, you won't be able to resist these warming Carnival flavours…
