Skrīveru Saldumi – Plums in chocolate

A house on a lively street near the famous Kalnciema quartet with its special atmosphere, wooden architecture and never-to-be-forgotten events.

I just can’t stop sharing my love for this part of Riga.

But now let’s get back to that house. A sweet shop is located there not only with a sweet name – “Plums in chocolate” but also with sweet items on its shelves.

One can purchase a piece or two or three (and you can continue counting) from candy factory Skriveru Saldumi’s assortment. The story of this factory started more than 50 years ago and the many kinds of candy they produce are still handmade with great care in mind.

Try out the traditional candy “Skrīveru Gotiņa” or my favorite – Apricots in chocolate, but be careful not to swallow your tongue.
