About Us: The Story of Leuvense Fonskes

The local specialty from the city of Leuven,

a tradition of more than 30 years in Leuven

Youth friends Liesbeth Geerinck and Bie Deckmyn love delicious desserts. More than 30 years ago they wrote a booklet about it with 40 recipes. It was such a success that they were asked to present their recipes at the local Leuven Christmas market.  

 

There, the idea rises to create a sweet specialty for the city of Leuven. Out of pride of the city and with the symbolic statue Fons Sapientiae as an inspiration, the Leuvense Fonskes are born: fresh chocolate pralines, handmade with high quality chocolate and filled with fine fillings in different tastes.

 

 

Why "Fonskes" from Leuven?

The origin of the name of the Leuven specialty

The Leuvense Fonskes chocolate pralines show the typical symbol of Leuven: the "Fons Sapientiae"or source of wisdom. This is the name of the statue at the Rector De Somer square - previously 'Fochplein'- in the heart of Leuven. People of Leuven don't use the Latin name for the statue, but the more familiar "Fonske".

 

Fonske symbolises the joy of the beer in his one hand, and the university knowledge of the book in his other hand. It's the combination of these 2 specialties that makes Leuven as a city unique in the world.

 
“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.” 

- Linda Grayson -
