Sømods Bolcher, Copenhagen

Sømods Bolcher, Copenhagen

What to buy here: Danish bonbons. Danes have a peculiar love of salty liquorice, a flavor you will find inside Sømods Bolchers’ small bonbon shop. Bolcher is bonbons in English. Try for instance Dameskrå and Hostebolcher. You can choose between a total of 74 kinds of bonbons. A special royal sort and old classic is the red, sweet and fruity Kongen af Danmark, which translated into English means King of Denmark. Another classic and bestseller is the rhubarb-flavored Rabarber. If you cannot decide on a flavor, just get a mixed bag. If you have diabetes or for other reasons do not want sugar, Sømods Bolcher also has an entire collection of sugar free bonbons. Prices start at $6 for 100 kilograms. Sømods Bolcher is an old-fashioned bonbon store and factory. The business was established back in 1891, and not much has changed during the past 120 years. A couple of machines have eased the production flow, but the bonbons are still produced according to old recipes, and no artificial sugars, colors or flavors are added. In the old factory shop in Nørregade 36 you can even watch the bonbons being made, before you buy any. Four generations of the Sømod family have run the business, which is Purveyor to The Royal Danish Court. Look for the photograph of Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II on the wall inside the shop in Nørregade 24.
