Where does the name "Himmlischen" come from?

The first heavenly chocolate truffles called “Himmlische” were produced by Karl and Ursula Leysieffer in 1950 under the name “Swiss Cream Truffles”. The name was initiated by a regular guest from the Osnabrück clergy who is said to have praised the little treats with the words “They taste wonderfully heavenly.” Since 1972, the name “Himmlische" has been a registered trademark.
