This wasn’t exactly what I had in mind, but it’s still a fabulous candy store in Gamla Stan! Old fashioned, smells wonderful, and you can watch them make cane candy- their speciality. Get your sugar fix here! It’s delicious!

This quaint little candy shop has quite a history and stakes claim to the creation of the candy cane. We went as part of a food tour and got to taste a few different things. I highly recommend it! It's like stepping back in time!
Located in a parallel street to gamlastan, this place is like out of a fairy tale book candy shop. It makes all the old fashioned Christmas sweets and you get the traditional polkagris or pig tail candies from here. You can also see how these...More

Just wanted to thank you for your kind words, it´s much appreciated! If you´re ever back in Stockholm you´re obvisoulsy more than welcome back!
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
