“My favourite candy store”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

This is such a fantastic candy store. You can go along and see them produce candy in a traditional way. Or just go along and buy some of the terrific tasting sweets! It's a wonderful store with a great selection, and one of my favourite places to visit when in Copenhagen.
It's not too long a process to watch so won't take too much time out of your visit. It's close to Nørreport station.

“Culinary tradition”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is the original shop this family has run in Copenhagen for quite a long time, so they have tradition nailed. They roll this sweet sugar candy in front of you, and you can literally watch the guy lose his fingerprints before your naked eyes. The walls are lined with mason jars of tasty candy, like it was Gene Wilder's atelier. Stop in here to watch and buy, and you won't be disappointed.

“A true gem”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

In an ever shrinking world, I truly appreciate things that can only be gotten in the place that they come from and can not, at any expense, be ordered online and shipped across the globe. Every time I go to Copenhagen, I load up on a tin of candies and make it last until my next visit. It is expensive, but it is authentic and a true to a bygone era.

“Great candy!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

You may look at them making the candy and they offered us some for tasting. This was all free. Though if you'd like to buy some of this candy is quite expensive. They are royal warrant holder.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Great old fashioned candies. You can watch their process, as they do everything by hand still to avoid having to put additives into the candy.
