Karkkiset – Sweetness in Kurvi

I’ve heard that Finns eat the most candy in the world – and by comparing the sizes of candy shelves in stores and supermarkets in Finland and aboard, I can easily believe it. Our shelves seem to continue and continue. But sometimes you just want to pick exactly what you want, and that’s when you need to go to candy stores. In Kallio the best place to find some sweets is Karkkiset in Sörnäinen metro station. 

For me Karkkiset has for years been THE place to buy some candies for my birthdays or for my friends’ parties, and I can always find what I’m yearning for. Actually there are so many options, that I always end up with a bag much bigger than I planned for…  

Karkkiset has a great selection of sweets from chocolates and gummy bears to chocolate cashews and, of course, the Finnish classic, salmiakki. So if your sweet tooth is aching in Kallio, Karkkiset is the place to go!
