What a brilliant find, the shop is clean and welcoming and has a great variety of chocolate at really great prices. I ended up buying a lot of different things to bring home as gifts due to how reasonable the prices were. I was also really pleased to find sugar free chocolate on offer as my Grandma is diabetic and I didn't want her to miss out. It was only a small selection (dark and maybe milk bars and dark with pistachio).
For those not on a sugar free dies there was plenty of choice. I brought two boxes of chocolate covered marshmallow (similar to German chocolate kisses), one in strawberry flavour and the other ligonberry/cranberry which was reduced to 1 euro due to the short date. I also brought a bag of raspberry truffle bar which is milk chocolate and raspberry jelly covered in dark chocolate and is delicious.
The lady in the shop was very pleasant and explained about the different bags you could purchase but I was happy popping my purchases in my backpack. If you want to bring home tasty Finnish chocolate for family and friends or even just yourself check out this place, it won't disappoint.

Of course we've seen many of these products in shops all over Finland. However, to actually get them from the original factory shop has a novelty attached to it and I left happy. Also, it was a lot cheaper there than in the supermarkets where their products are offered. That really surprised me.

We left with chocolate for all. I'm saving my chocolate orange for New Years Day as a nice treat to start the year.

If you love chocolate – I mean reeeally love chocolate, Brunberg’s is your shop. It’s located toward the end of main street of the charming, picture perfect old town of Porvoo, Finland. When we visited, the line stretched out the door of the tiny shop. But, these people know how to keep a line moving so don’t be put off by that. They have chocolates in bars and boxes but your best value is by the bag. Just inside the door are bags of little chocolates that look like toffee twists. There are several flavors including plain, mocha and caramel. They are so creamy that they melt fairly quickly so I recommend refrigeration. Pop it in your mouth cold and it immediately softens to the creamiest chocolate imaginable. It is a perfect blend of cocoa, sugar and dairy. You can clearly taste the cocoa more than most chocolates but without the bite of dark chocolate although I suspect they have that too. It’s not a good item to mail order due to melting. We’re plotting how to go back to Porvoo next summer to buy more.

Dear Tardistouring, thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are very glad that you liked our truffles, a product that has been in our assortment since the 1920's. It is true that they melt easily, and that is why we mostly eat them in the fall and at Christmas time in Finland. You are very welcome to visit us again!

I love Brunberg's chocolate and therefore visiting the store was literally like kid in a candy shop. Prices were very reasonable as well. Visit and taste if in Porvoo.

We visited Porvoo on a cruise itinerary that was just outside Helsinki. Walking the back streets we find a candy factory and walked inside. Free samples of the smoothest, finest chocolate, oh my goodness. We made one huge mistake, We only bought one 500g bag of only two flavors. After both bags were gone back in USA we knew we did not buy enough. We have tried chocolate from many places. These little logs of ambrosia will be hard to beat

Our tour group paid a visit to this chocolate shop located on the cobblestone streets of old town in Porvoo. Plenty of free samples were available to taste before making a purchase. The truffles were delightfully good so I walked out with a bag filled with a mixture of three different chocolate truffle flavors. The workers were very friendly and helpful. What a sweet shop to visit. Do not miss it if in the area.

If you like truffels and licorice, you should not miss this place if you ever get a chance to visit. You can try pretty much everything as they offer samples, which is nice so you can try the sweets before you buy. My personal favourites were the traditional soft black licorice, the licorice fudge and all of the chocolate truffels. The shop is well air-conditioned so that the sweets don't melt and the staff is very friendly. Prices are very fair.

Recently I was an escort on an excursion from a cruise ship to Porvoo, a charming village in Finland. Our guide took us into this shop to sample the wonderful delights of this small chocolate factory. The chocolate truffles were amazing so I bought packets for friends back home and the liquorice too. Nita served me and she was most charming and helpful and also spoke perfect English. I directed many of my coach to this shop and all were most satisfied with their purchases. An ideal present for those back home at reasonable prices. This a "must see and taste" in Porvoo.

Our guide recommended we visit this chocolate shop while we were visiting Porvoo, saying that you can try all the chocs/sweets on offer, we were not sure to believe this but were so pleasantly surprised to find it true. They were delicious i even liked the salted licorice which i likened to marmite you either love it or hate it. Of course we bought a few boxes to take home and of course they didnt make it home.
The Old town of Porvoo is quaint and worth a visit.
