Ålands Karamelleriet is run by Johanna "Anna" and Tobias "Obi" Marquardt. Anna's family has been summer residents of Åland for 60 years. In 1961, Gunilla Nordlund's (né Gustafsson) grandfather built a summer cottage for tourists that Anna's grandparents came to as the first tenants.
On the way from Germany to Åland, they always took a break in the traditional polkagris-town of Gränna. When the children were grown up, Anna's parents Sabine and Andreas decided to open a caramel cookery at home in Bremen. Sabine learned to cook polkagris in Gränna, and Bremer Bonbon Manufaktur was opened in 2009.
Together, Anna and Obi, Anna's parents and Gunilla and Roger Nordlund created the idea to start a similar company on Åland. Landlords Jenny and Micke Björklund organized the construction of the caramel kitchen itself. Ålands Karamelleriet opened its gates at Smakbyn on Walpurgis Night 2021.
The kitchen is built openly, so that all visitors are welcome to watch the caramel production, and everyone gets one (or more) tastings - with a little luck of freshly made, hot caramels. So visit, taste caramels and enjoy the experience of how ordinary sugar turns into colorful, tastiest caramels and lollipops.
