Carlsbad Oblaten

 

Category: Traditional Products Region: Karlovy Vary and its surroundings Town: Karlovy Vary

 

The original Carlsbad oblaten belong among the most popular traditional products for more than 130 years. First mentions of these traditional wafers from Karlovy Vary date back to the mid 18th century. Even though their professional production began in 1904, Carlsbad oblaten had gained world repute already in the 19th and 18th centuries. In 1900, they were awarded a gold medal at the World Exhibition in Paris. And in more recent history, this typical Czech product was declared one of the best selling products of the Czech pavilion at the World Expo in Hannover. They retain their specific characteristics thanks to their traditional recipe and the use of thermal mineral water from Karlovy Vary.

You may buy them practically everywhere in the spa zone of Karlovy Vary as a hot "take-away" snack or packaged as traditional oblaten or triangles.
