Wow. The smell is intoxicating and samples incredible. The staff is helpful, congenial, and fluent in English. We bought lots of gifts for family and friends as well as some for ourselves! The difficult choice was parting with the gifts.

This store was the last stop of our Runnerbean tour for kids. The kids (4 & 7) had never seen candy being made before and they watched with big eyes. We bought a jar and a couple of small bags as treats for the kids and friends when we returned home. They taste great and remind us of our vacation.... More

I had never heard of artisanal candy until I stumbled across this shop in the city's Gothic quarter. Not only was the candy delicious, it was also some of the most beautiful I've ever seen -- almost like jewels. For that reason alone, I bought some back to the states for my niece, whose minor hobby is food photography.

If you are in the Gothic Area don't miss this cool place. You can buy many kinds of their homemade candies and what's really cool is watch how they make it!

We were brought here by our tour guide and the kids and adults were amazed! We watched them make the candy and it's literally a work of art. They put layers and layers together to make a pattern, then pull it into bite size sticks and then cut them into little candies. They make all sorts of flavours and the... More

I wanted to bring friends some authentic Barcelona treats/souvenirs that were non-chocolate. An internet search brought up Papabubble. I contacted them via email since it would be a large order and they were super friendly and helpful. We walked from the top of La Rambla to their store which is just outside the Barri Gothic area, towards the port area.... More

If you find yourself in Barcelona, this is a must! Sweets of all kinds and some not what you would expect. Stunning presentation and if your lucky you might get to see them in action... Do it, Do it...

We visited in July 2012! We arrived with a private tour at around 4pm. It was a thrill to see the making of the candy. The kids really had the wow factor! Very friendly staff! Check Mark item on your visit to Barca!
