Guide to Copenhagen: Karamelleriet

If you walk through Jægersborggade, you might realize that there is a small smell in the middle of the street. It’s something sweet, and I’ve seen lots of people looking around to figure out where it comes from. The answer is Karamelleriet, a small shop making homemade caramels. The caramels smell absolutely fantastic and taste even better.

When you find the shop and enter, the smell will get more intense. In one part of the shop, you can see the caramels being made. If you’re lucky, you get to taste one directly from the production.

In the other part of the shop, you can buy all the different types and flavors. They taste of licorice, cinnamon, chocolate, cocoanut, spearmint and fruit. Most of the caramels come in pretty small packages, but if you have a hard time to decide which flavor you prefer, it’s possible to mix and match yourself. That’s what I always do. I have the hardest time deciding, because they are all so good. I guess you can call that a very sweet problem.
