Package design for the introduction of the now famous Leibniz Butterkeks (still known as “cakes” by then) in 1891 by Hanover based Bahlsen food company.

The Leibniz Keks was named after German philosopher and mathematician Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. The word Keks is a corruption of the English word cakes and due to the popularity of the Leibniz Keks has since become the generic German word for a crunchy,sweet biscuit.
