Typical Czech sweet candies & cookies

If you like to buy some typical Czech sweets as a souvenir and be original, we recommend to buy the typical Czech candies or cookies. 


 

For us, it is a bit nostalgic as they represent our childhood. Today there is a huge offer of sweets of different colors, marks and flavors, however when we were young, these candies and cookies were the only ones in the shelves that you could get. Regarding the candies, to be honest, we hardly know anybody, who loves all kinds. People usually have just one or two favorites, the rest they just do not like at all. I personally prefer only “Kofila” with a creamy coffee filling. The others are too sweet for me and usually have “weird”, very colorful fillings. 
On the other hand, cookies such as “Tatranka”, “Horalka” or “Polomacene” are very popular among the Locals and are the essential equipment for our outdoor trips.
Either way, these Czech candies or cookies might be an original gift from Prague. They cost up to 20 CZK per piece and you can get them in every grocery store.
