Carlsbad Spa Wafers

A Girl Selling Hot WafersThe history of the traditional Czech spa wafers (lázeňské oplatky) goes back to 1856 when Karel Reitenberger started to produce them on a large scale. Their taste and shape have not changed ever since.

You can find spa wafers in a number of Czech spa towns, but those from Karlovy Vary are the most famous. The large, round, thin and delicate wafers come in many flavors (our favorite is chocolate) and you can buy them boxed or get them fresh from a street vendor who will even warm them up for you. To our great disappointment, the chocolate ones are the only ones that can't be heated.
