I hate having to explain jokes… but looking back at this page, I’m not sure if it’s clear. Well, if you get the particular type of candy I’m referencing here, great. If not, hopefully the story point is still conveyed…

Particular candy... Oktoberfest something?

I'm not sure I understand the question!

That's a no, otherwise, if it was a reference to "gingerbread heart", you'd know. And in this case, I have no idea...

Ah! Funny, no, I didn’t even know those gingerbread hearts were a real thing. I was making an allusion to these things....

Ahh, thank you, I didn't know these... OK, to be honest, that's a lie... I have seen these little hearts before but I thought they were just cheap (no-brand) candy, nothing famous.

The gingerbread hearts are well-known in Germany (most likely also outside of it) and big tradition in Bavaria. There are several companies that produce them, even local bakeries make them in fall for the Oktoberfest.
