Candies were always a favorite sweet of children of all ages, as well as of many adults, who are enjoying tea with some candy quite often. In Soviet times good candies were in shortage, while now you can choose from a variety of brands and tastes. Some of these brands are Soviet, and many now are quite legendary, like “In-toed Bear” or “Little Squirrel”, but some are of the “post-Soviet Russia”, like the candies from KORKUNOV factory. We have divided the CANDIES section to several subsections, which are:
CARAMEL – here you will find the selection of various caramel packs from ROT FRONT factory, which started out in 1826 as a small manufacturer of caramel candies. After revolution of 1917 it was nationalized and renamed, but continued to produce the finest caramel candies, along with a lot of other products. Now this factory is private again, but its quality and taste are very similar to its Soviet times, so you have unique opportunity to “buy the taste of USSR” in the form of ROT FRONT’s caramel candies which were really popular back then. Their popularity in Soviet Russia was based on two factors – cheap price and the wide availability, and now it is still one of the most budget friendly Russian sweets available. So, buy the legendary Soviet caramel in order to understand a little bit more about Soviet times and literally taste them!
SOUFFLE – was always a favorite sweet delicacy for Soviet people due to is difficulty to find in the shops, but now is readily available and relatively cheap for everybody to buy. Its popularity from Soviet times did not fade and many people are buying it as their favorite sweets for the tea. And you can do the same – buy Russian souffle to treat yourself and your guests!
TOFFEE – another popular in Soviet times candy which was cheap and readily available.

Maybe you will like them so much that you’ll be buying Russian toffee with every future purchase of yours ;)
CHOCOLATE CANDIES – elite candies in the Soviet Union due to shortages and empty shelves, although some of them were available for the average person to buy. Like “LITTLE SQUIRREL” or “SWALLOW” candies, for example. Today, of course, it is not a problem and there are lots of chocolate candies available both in the boxes and packs. We decided to present you in this section the “Soviet classics” with such names as “IN-TOED BEAR” and “KARAKUM”, as well as many others.
