Sweet Stores 🍫

Sweet Store is kalled 'Sjoppa' in Icelandic. We really really really love candy, especially Icelandic candy!

Nína:Here's a shopping list for you if you visit Vinberid: 1. Hris, 2. Draumur, 3. Hraun and 4. Djupur. You should also try Opal if you like salty licorice.

Nína:Omnom is a locally produced luxury chocolate. A must-visit for the chocolate lover.

Nína:A very very old-fashioned 'Sjoppa' in the city center. Try the 'kokosbolla' or simply a 'Prince Polo' washed down with an ice cold Coke.
