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).

Omnom (x5)

Omnom is an award-winning small-batch, handcrafted, artisanal chocolate maker based in Reykjavík, Iceland.
Each bar contains single-origin cocoa beans from Madagascar, Tanzania and Nicaragua; organic sugar cane; natural Icelandic milk powder — is individually sourced with care, placing ethics, sustainability and transparency at the heart of the process.
‘Hraun’ means ‘Lava,’ and this bar is shaped as though a chocolate-spouting volcano erupted over a wafer-field of puffed rice and maize starch (That’s probably how it’s advertised, anyway). The texture is rough, and bits and pieces of puffed rice pop out like a bits of a lava field. 

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...

Nói Siríus is the largest manufacturer of Icelandic chocolate and these bars are the traditional, classic ones. 
When asked what our subscribers (subscribe here) wanted us to add to the store many mentioned Pipp! But where was it? It was nowhere to be found and our investigation led us to the Nói Siríus chocolate factory where it used to be made.

Turns out a few years back their (incompetent) marketing people decided overhaul the legendary franchise of Pipp and turn it into a more "serious" chocolate. But thankfully the recipe remains the same although the look and name has changed! The peppermint filling is just as delicious as it used to be and the chocolate is available both in milky form and in darker vegan form...
