A new resident — the Caramel Manufactory — has appeared in building No. 174a in the Park of Crafts at VDNKh. Visitors can taste over 30 types of sweets, including fancy shaped rock candies, sweet marshmallow and nutritional marmalade. They are all handmade from only natural ingredients.
Visitors can see the process used in making these sweets. Those with a sweet tooth will have an opportunity to learn to make them by hand.
Candies with confessions and tasty stories
The caramel makers will not limit themselves to just making sweets. While the candies are being made, they will talk about the origin of caramel and share interesting facts and amusing stories about this ancient treat.
Visitors will see many kinds of caramels in the shop, both classic (with the apple, grape and raspberry flavour) and exotic, such as a mix of lemon with chili pepper or a blend of ginger and mint.
The craftspeople will show how to paint the inside of candy. A visitor can paint the arch of the main entrance to VDNKh or write a love note. The caramel masters mystify visitors with their creations every time; they might make a melon flavored cello and tomorrow a pink unicorn with the taste of chocolate.
The Caramel Manufactory plans to hold regular workshops for children and adults. They will be able to make three candies by hand with different shapes, colours and tastes and take them home with a master of caramel degree. The caramel masters and their workers can make up to 25 kilos of caramel a day.
The Park of Crafts opened at VDNKh in 2016. It has 16 crafts and 50 workshops on 25 hectares.
