Update July 2019: CuKor Candy Shop has moved location. You can now visit CuKor Candy Shop at Carrer Palau 2 in the Gothic Quarter. As a child, I had extremely poor dental hygiene, as a result, every molar I own has a retro Amalgam filling in it. If I don’t laugh out loud though, you can’t tell, in fact, my front teeth are straight and white. Good-looking teeth because I am (now) fanatical about maintaining them. Which is why: I don’t eat candy.
Except on the rare occasions that I happen to be passing by the sweet shop Çu Kor in Gothic Quarter. Everything here is handmade. It is all beautiful, quirky and real. In the winter, I picked up some wonderful ginger pastilles that soothed my raw throat. A couple of weeks ago they had some stringy barba a papa. Another time it was different sized discs in a rainbow of colours and a little satchel of sour powder. They sell marshmallows, fruit pates, toffee, fudge. It’s all here.
And if you don’t necessarily want to eat candy, you can also learn how to make candy at one of the classes on offer. Then you can be elevated to candy gifter which would put you third after Santa Claus and the Easter Rabbit in the eyes of children. And something akin to a crack dealer with their parents or me.
