    Package for “Csokoládés vaníliás karika” (“chocolate vanilla rings”) from the 1980s.

    The vanilla ring is a classic Hungarian biscuit. The bottom of the vanilla biscuit is dipped in a cocoa coating, the shape is round with a hole in the middle, hence the name.

    Emil Horváth is credited with inventing the vanilla ring, based on a recipe for a tea cake, the vanilla bun. The production of the biscuits started in 1963 with the help of leftover machinery from the predecessor of Győri Keksz Kft., the Koestlin factory. Named after the vanilla bun on which the dough is based, it was first marketed as a chocolate vanilla ring.

    For many years, the vanilla ring was made in the factory in Győrsziget, but Mondelēz International, which bought Győr Biscuits, now markets it in Hungary as Pilóta vanilla ring, and it is made in the Székesfehérvár confectionery factory.
