Choco Leibniz from Hannover.

The Bahlsen company in Hannover has been producing the famous Leibniz biscuit for over 120 years. Named after the renowned polymath Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, this extraordinary biscuit was even awarded a gold medal at the World's Fair in Chicago. So revered is it that in 2013 the brass emblem of the biscuit was stolen from the company's headquarters by a thief styling himself on the Cookie Monster. It was returned shortly afterwards.
