Hans & Gretel – Camden Market
One for the dessert lover and childhood favourite, Hans & Gretel have arrived in London. This amazing sugar rush looking store is one to check out. Bringing back your childhood memories with this magical world of candy with the interiors, it doesn’t stop there with the amount of sweetness you can have. You can start with either Candy Floss gelato, Chimney cake, bubble waffle or pick and mix and so much more. Your sweet tooth will not be able to resist the delicious treats.
This fairy tale world has been buzzing ever since it opened in Camden Market for the first time in London two months ago. Ever since they launched in Greece and worldwide, I noticed many people walking around with their phones and cameras constantly. As you walk in you feel the excitement and see the happy faces from the people wandering. The whole store feels like you’re in another world like imagining you’re in Alice and Wonderland, which was a must for me to visit as soon as possible to see for myself.
A fairy tale inspired decorated with lots of candy canes, lollipops and sweets. It’s well and truly insta heaven for those wishing to shoot here. This shop is already buzzing with lots of visitors coming in. I can only see this place growing from strength to strength. I even had an opportunity to speak to the owner of the shop who was such a lovely lady, the staff members were all friendly and welcoming as well I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I’m sure you guys will have a really good time as well.
There are a range of customisable desserts to choose from making your very own funky flavoured treat. I’ve been told they will be expanding their menu soon with crepes and more. The chimney cake is the one I had and would recommend as they are pretty unique. It’s a sweet caramelised dough which is toasted for crispiness and then filled with a choice of your gelato and topping.
They also provide waffle cones and freak shakes, giving you that sugar craving at the maximum level. If you think that isn’t enough, there is a pick n mix station, candy floss machine and ice cream bar you don’t want to miss out on any of this.
Finally, you can find the store quite easily. The dessert parlour is surrounded by lots of lollipop-wielding statues, which are already popular with visitors taking photos next to it and capturing their childhood moments with it. I have to say it’s winning the insta game for best dessert place in town. Fairytale in the real world, you just can’t beat it especially when it’s in your home city.
Hans & Gretel Overall, coming here I was amazed and really enjoyed my time. I wish I had space for more treats but I’ll save it for another time it’s definitely a lovely location to visit. The workers and manager are so nice, you simply cannot resist capturing the surroundings, especially the Alice and Wonderland Tea room just made for the Instagram moments.
