The sweets of Berlin

Bonbonmacherei - situated in a tucked away alley just off the Oranienburger Strasse. 
Delicious sweets are made here using vintage equipment, the most famous recipe is the typical Berlin confection Maiblatter (made from May leaves) With a very sweet tooth for the sugar variety, Louise and I headed here late Saturday afternoon, we knew we were in the right place as a tribe of 5/6 year olds starting emerging from some underground steps!!!! With a wall full of a variety of flavours from liquorice to banana, apple to mint and gift packaged bundles, we opted for a 'pick n mix' style selecting a couple of each flavour and all for the bargain price of 2 euro 50. A demonstration was under way and we were able to sample one of the freshly made sweets - still quite warm!!!!!
When it comes to sweets we are definitely a pair of big kids!!!!!
