The story of our love towards sweets

Everyone has their own favourite candy. Regardless if it is associated with childhood, the first love, friendship, the joys of summer or something else equally as special, we fall in love with it!

Our museum staff also each has their own favourite candy or Laima confectionery from our wide assortment.

Meet each of us and learn the stories about our favourite sweets.

LAIME (Happiness)

The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problem, but those who have learned to enjoy life despite the fact that everything is not perfect. To make every day and every moment more joyful, all you need is a piece of happiness or how we call it - “Laime”. It is delicious chocolate candy that will make your day more joyful and bright and will taste great for both kids and adult sweet tooth’s. Live for today and don’t complain about the past or hope for the future. Enjoy the moment beautifully!

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!

VĒSMA (Breeze)

Brisk morning breeze softly playing with hair. It thrills and rushes over  meadows covered with dew and brings with it freshness and change. In the whirwinds of life Vēsma always makes my day sweeter!

VINNIJS (Winnie)

"HERE is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Chistopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it. And then he feels that perhaps there isn't. Anyhow, here he is at the bottom, and ready to be introduced to you. Winnie-the-Pooh."

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!

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.

SWEET ROULETTE

A little bit of seriousness, and bit of childishness, sweets and joyfulness, all of that in one whirl. It’s like the taste of sweet roulette, that recalls me my childhood pranks. That way I try to be now as well - a little bit childish, a little naughty and undoubtedly serious at the same time, so that my days wouldn't be monotonous although my energy is flowing all the way and I get it from positive all around. Anyway, If I am really in a bad mood, then a sweetie will never come to nothing.

Sweet roulette always reminds me that sometimes you have to be little again to do big things.

SARKANĀ MAGONE (Red poppy)

Mysterious, unique and fiery I am like candy “Sarkanā magone”. It is a candy with a special taste and crispy surprise. Strong and at the same time fragile candy as its crumb of caramel and the flower itself. Get lost in the red poppy field, feel the charm of it and bite a piece to feel the magic taste of "Sarkanā magone"…
