LĀCĪTIS ĶEPAINĪTIS 

Conservative and classic from the outside, having nature and family as the basic values. Crunchy core and mild character. You can never know what the firm shell holds within so only those who have a bite can enjoy the magic of this taste.

RUDZUPUĶE (Cornflower)

Summer at the countryside... Rye fields, approaching thunderstorm... I am gathering cornflowers... They look wonderful in the waving field!

Every time I take „Cornflower” in my hands, I feel the scent of summer, thunderstorm and rye field!

VĒTRASPUTNS (Storm Petrel)

DIANA 

It's an early, and a bit hazy august morning - the sun is trying to get through the thick apple trees branches, the dark blackberry and the red currant bushes. The end of the summer - the most bustling time of the year. It's the time when so much work has to be done. It's my favourite time of the year. And this is the time, I associate with the marmalade "Diana" - the freshness of apples and berries coated with sweet milk chocolate.

VĀVERĪTE (Little Squirell)

I can compare myself to the Laima’s long-term jewel — candy Vāverīte (Little Squirrel). Firstly, because I am active, inquisitive and swift — this is what squirrels are like! The will to be and manage everywhere and always. Secondly, the wrapping paper of the candy Vāverīte has the green colour of hazelnut leaves — the colour that symbolises person’s development, youth and growth. I am constantly willing to learn something new. Green colour is always looking for cooperation and points of contact. The main thing is that green colour inspires! Just as the tasty Vāverīte eaten with creamy coffee! Finally, my close ones call me a crazy person with a sweet tooth. Spot on!

MAIGUMS 

An airy zephyr with a crunchy chocolate coating - two natures, that perfectly fit together. I associate Maigums with a moment of relaxation. When the routine of every day and worries tire me, the lightness of Maigums lifts me to carry on.

SARKANĀ MAGONE (RED POPPY) 

I love bright colors and deep red is my favorite. It is a color in which one can look infinitely and keep trying to find ideal tone. Challenging, bright and fiery, but despite its brightness, we can find harmony and endless peace within it.

ASORTI

I am all about variety - the sweet and the bitter, the classic and the creatively extravagant. I like when it’s funny and interesting, touching and thrilling, unbelievable and surprising. Every day something new.
