Delicious delicacies - snacks and bakery products

All destinations have their own special delicacies, tiny tasty treasures that make every day a spesial day. Here are our local tips.

Tvedestrand

Næs Ironworks Museum serve the most delicious "munker". These are small, round-shaped pastries with a salty and crisp surface, fried in their own "munk iron".

Arendal

Heimdal Chokolade is Norway's only home producer of chocolate. White, light and dark chocolate with all kinds of tastes and shapes - these are the top souvenirs from Arendal.

Åmli

Hillestad Gallery bakes the best "kringle" (coffee bread ring) - an airy yeast leavened bakery product with set vanilla custard and nuts, and that little special something that makes it an attraction in Tovdal.

Grimstad

Grimstad bakes the best "purker" in Norway. This yeast leavened bakery product is called a "skolebrød" other places in Norway. Sold at all the three bakeries Bergshaven, Morterud and Sam Berg, in the middle of town.Soft custard and lots of icing sugar.

Kristiansand

Shrimps bought from the store Fiskeeksperten in Fiskebrygga (the fish quay) in Kristiansand. Bring some delicious fresh bread, find yourself a place on the pier with a view of the harbour. To be eaten in sunlight.

Lindesnes

At Norway's most southern mainland point, Lindesnes lighthouse, they make their own lighthouse bread with seawater - and seaweed! And they grow their own lemons for a fantastic lemon pie!
