“An overrated tourist trap”

Brunberg Candy Factory Shop
Ranked #2 of 24 things to do in Porvoo

Not what I expected!!!
I understand that it is traditional place in Porvoo, Finland. However, there are hundreds of better chocolatiers in countries such as Mexico, Switzerland, France and Belgium.

Actually, it's not much of an attraction, but if you're in Porvoo, and have a car - go there. Genuine Finnish chocolate and candies are sold in a next-to-factory shop for very acceptable prices.

The Brunberg Candy Factory Shop is located in an industrial area in the outskirts of Porvoo. Porvoo it self has a lovely old town so it is a pity to leave it for a less inpiring enviroment. The factory shop is not interesting and the candies are not cheaper. Actually what I recommed is the Brunberg shop in the start of the Old Town. They have better offers and it is a much cosier enviroment.

We went to the factory shop and had so much fun trying much of what they sold. One sample, mentioned by another person here, was a chocolate covered licorice toffee. It sounded horrible to me but we tried it and loved it. We bought some for friends at home but are now rethinking that! Also great are the mint truffle bars (chocolate with both chocolate cream and a mint jelly inside), fruit jellies, black licorice, truffle chocolates, and the kisses. We walked out with so much. Now that we are home we are depressed we can't seem to find a way to get more of anything. The factory is well worth a visit for delicious candy and very low prices. The store in town is good too and had 1 or 2 things not at the factory.

This place is only shop worth visiting in Porvoo (all the rest are geared towards women). Although not in the town center, it is not far. I thought I would see a real chocolate factory in action but it was interesting nonetheless. Wonderful samples. They even cater to lactose-free clients; I got a few absolutely delicious lactose-free candy bars. There is also a shop in the town center but it is more expensive.
