A wise person once said that if you can get to know a nation’s candy you can get to know a nation’s heart. For this box we did a lot of research and scientifically calculated how much Icelandic candy an average person needs to survive for one month. The answer lies within this box. Filled to the brim with all the best candy Iceland has come up with.
Nói Siríus - Kropp 200g
Nóa kropp is an Icelandic classic. Could possibly be likened to Maltesers in some sense but smaller and lighter (and better in our humble opinion)...By no means a controversial candy and goes with anything as well. Put it on a cake, ice cream or have some with coffee. Doesn´t matter. Everyone likes it.
Opal (Green and Red)
A gentleman commenting on our Icelandic classics box was obviously in considerable dismay whilst typing: "Where is the Opal?" And boy was he spot on! How can anyone in their right mind make an Icelandic Classics Box without OPAL?! We hang our head in shame actually and future Icelandic Classics boxes will come with a free pack of Opal thanks to him!
But what are they? Opal are small, round, salmiak (or menthol in red) liquorice pastilles that are one of the things you would find in the pocket or purse of the average Icelander and has been for decades. Everyone knows the taste and it doesn't change although they add varieties regularly (and so will we).
Conga Xtra - The ultimate retro chocolate bar!
Although in theory it's really just a thick ice cream wafer covered in chocolate, it has a big cult following and has been around since we had 3 digit phone numbers apparently!
So there must be some magic hidden within the Conga...Order now and taste for yourself!
The memories. The Lindu Buff is a classic Icelandic sugar bomb of a chocolate bar. "Buff" means something along the lines of "Meatloaf" and is probably a reference to the shape of it.
Inside it's thin layer of chocolate it is jam packed with a sticky, white, sugary, almost marshmallowy substance that tastes like a piece of heaven. There is no other way to describe what this substance is like as we have not encountered it in foreign candy...But it is airy, extremely sticky and very, very sweet!
Try it! You will most likely be back for more...
It was easy to order and arrived very quickly. The candy was great, but I wanted my free piece of new lava most. I'm so excited to have a brand new piece of the earth.
Happy to hear you enjoyed the candy box! Be proud of yourself – you're the owner of some freshly made Icelandic lava now! :)
