In our production we do not use dextrose, glucose, corn starch, flavoring or other synthetic sugars. We use only pearl sugar, in the making of our production tradition-bound sweets.

We have a wide range of sweets with various colors, sizes, shapes and flavors. Common to them all is that they are free from artificial flavors and dyes. Everything is 100% natural.

Selected candies

Royal court supplier

We are proud to be Royal Court suppliers, which we have been since 1991. The appointment took place the same year as our 100th anniversary.

We are very touched by the gesture that rewards our family's passion to provide only the best quality and live up to the proud traditions of craftsmanship which Sømods sweet makers have used through 6 generations.

We still produces the original sweets by hand and of the same raw materials as in 1891. We are also still bound by family values, for it is now the fifth generation of the family Søemod that controls the candy factory and ensures that it is the right Sømods Candies, you can buy in Nørregade as well as online in our webshop.

But what does it mean?

Royal Court supplier is a predicate dating back to the 1800s that can be awarded to companies and individuals who have had prolonged and regular trading of a certain scale with the royal family and the royal household.

Additionally, it is a prerequisite that the company must be well established, financially sound, well managed and reputable.

The predicate is not automatically granted, but must be sought, and then the households Office assesses whether the application can be submitted to Her Majesty the Queen.

The appointment is made personally by Her Majesty the Queen and according to the old tradition takes place on the monarch's birthday.

Come visit and see our craftmanship

Come visit Sømods Candies factory where time seems to stand still. We have retained the old manufacturing method, so the sweets is still produced as over 100 years ago. This even though the production has increased from 27 tons a year to 50 tons annually.

Sømods Candies factory is a historical time capsule that gives an insight into Copenhagen artisanal history and traditions, where you can gain insight into how we make our sweets.

Since we started the production in the factory in 1932, there have been only small changes in production.

The stove, which the candy mass is cooked in, is still the original, which, however, are converted from being a coal stove to burn gas.

Furthermore Theodor Søemod came up with two ideas that could improve the production of candy: an electric fan so the sweets was cooled faster, and a small heater, so you could extend the working with the candy mass by about 10 minutes.

There are also introduced small daily aids to reduce the workload: Drop boilers got a cart to transport 27 kg heavy copper pot of boiling candy mass from the stove to the production table, and the ladies in the shop has received a closing machine for the candy bags so they do not physically have to close the many bags that weigh every day.

The biggest change is, however, the package. In the 1950s sweets are still wrapped in a traditional paper cornet, but it is now no longer possible to use paper cones, since they are not airtight and the sweets greases. Similarly, it is a necessity with air conditioning during production to minimize the moisture that gets the sweets to stick.
