About this deal

Launched in 1969, Freia's Toppris Kubbe is similar to the Toffee Crisp or Lion Bar. This chocolate bar is filled with light toffee and rice, so it's chewy with a slightly crispy texture to it. NSFD: Not Safe For Dieters! The Norwegian chocolate to look out when visiting a supermarket in Norway. It reminds me a little of the rice crispy cakes I used to make as a kid (definitely not as an adult though, no, not, definitely not) I think it's fair to say that Freia is Norway's most famous chocolate brand. For one thing, the illuminated sign on Karl Johans gate gets captured in so many photographs. There has been a Freia store on Karl Johans gate since 1913.

After Kraft's acquisition, most of the operation remains at Freia's factory in Oslo. Parts of production have been outsourced to Lithuania, Estonia and Sweden, following restructuring from the parent company in the mid-2000s. Since 2012, the owner has been Mondelēz International. Most commonly sold in bags, Smash is also available in bar form. That's simply a regular chocolate bar containing bits of Smash, rather than being one big Smash bar! Kvikk LunsjThese salty-sweet tornadoes are my absolute favourite Norwegian chocolate! Smash from Nidar are simply corn chips covered in chocolate. If you’re traveling to Norway I’d recommend you to try out some delicious Norwegian chocolate. Here are three types from Freia, which are famous for their Melkesjokolade (milk chocolate) and Kvikk Lunsj. I’ve also listed Stratos and Smash from Nidar, one of the largest distributors of sweets to Norwegians. Photo on the left shows the importance of Freia Melkesjokolade in Norway.

However, it's worth seeking out if you're ever in Norway or the surrounding countries. It's a delicious and uniquely Norwegian chocolate that's sure to delight your taste buds and give you a taste of Norwegian culture and tradition.

At the moment an orange edition is available in stores, which replaces the raspberry jelly with an orange jelly. Small chocolate companies Nidar is the big rival to Freia and is based out of Trondheim in central Norway. The company began in 1912, with Christmas and Easter marzipan the first notable products. Kvikk Lunsj is a chocolate bar made by the Norwegian company Freia. It consists of four thin wafers filled with milk chocolate, and is similar in size and shape to the KitKat chocolate bar. However, Kvikk Lunsj has a distinct taste and texture that sets it apart. Of course, it would be wrong to stop just with the big two. Norway has its fair share of entrepreneurs trying to make it in the chocolate world. Up in Bodø, British chef Craig Alibone has made quite the name for himself with his premium chocolate brand and shop.

Nestle, maker of KitKat, has argued in European courts since 2002 that it has the right to trademark the shape. The courts disagreed as KitKat isn't commonplace cross the continent. Freia couldn't buy that kind of publicity. Can’t wait until you come to Norway? Buy Freia Milk Chocolate bar here (Etsy) Freia Firkløver Milk Chocolate bar Freia Firkløver(four-leaf clover) chocolate is the same as the classic Freia Milk Chocolate, but comes with roasted pieces of hazel nut. It was first sold in 1926, and is a favorite chocolate amongst many Norwegians. This article needs additional citations for verification.

Because of the court cases, interest in Kvikk Lunsj has increased outside of Norway too. British newspapers the Guardian and Independent both rated the Norwegian bar higher in blind taste tests. They key? The chocolate-to-wafer ratio is higher in the KL.

In the harsh 1930s, Freia Milk Chocolate was marketed as follows: “This top quality chocolate is made by Norwegian milk with Norwegian capital and Norwegian workers”. Did you know that you can buy most of these online? I’ve posted links below so keep on reading, and enjoy that Norwegian chocolate! Kvikk Lunsj Chocolate Freia is a Norwegian chocolate brand. The brand is known for Freia Melkesjokolade and Kvikk Lunsj, as well as for other candy and dessert products. [1] The company was acquired by Mondelez International in 1993, and liquidated in 2017. These days, Stratos is best known for its commercials featuring the bright blue happy cow you can see on the wrapper. Just look at those udders go…I will have caused outrage among my Norwegian readers for not starting with Freia's Kvikk Lunsj, the most iconic chocolate in Norway. It has such status because it's synonymous with the one true love of all Norwegians: the outdoors. It was engineer Jørgen Holmsen who discovered the ‘airy' Aero chocolate bar at a trade fair in Germany, and returned to the Nidar factory to try to create something similar. There has also a peanut version round and about called ‘Peanøtt Kubbe' although I haven't seen it for a while. The peanut taste is much more overpowering than the rice of the original. However, I'm not sure whether that's because that's the genuine taste, or because I really don't like peanuts very much! Troika
