Frequently asked questions

How are the sweet pieces of candy spelled correctly in Danish?
Sømod Bolcher is spelled with ch as it binds together with our proud tradition and history. Indeed, the name is from 1920, where the widely used spelling of the candy was "bolche".

The correct spelling of today is, however, "bolsje / bolsjer". In 2001, the spelling line with ch was removed from the Danish legal writing dictionary.

As a funny little information, it may be mentioned that the word bolsje came to Danish either from the Lower German word "bolt", which means "little ball". Others think it came to Denmark with Zar Peter The Great in 1716, where he on a trip through Copenhagen had a piece of candy, and in response he should have expressed более, Bolsje, which in Russian means "More".

One of the most famous candies in Denmark is probably the King of Denmark. The red candy with the characteristic taste. The candy is named after King Christian the 5th (King of Denmark from 1670-1699), who received the candy as a medicine against a stomach ache.

What does the king taste of Denmark?

The king of Denmark-bolcher tastes of star anise. In the 17th century anise oil was a popular medicine for stomach aches.

The History of the King of Denmark

The story of the development of the candy is that King Christian d. 5. called his physician to be cured for a stomach ache. The time's medicine against stomach aches was anise oil, which has a very strong taste. The king therefore refused to ingest the oil, and the physician had to think creatively to entice the king to take the medicine.

He had heard of a pharmacy practicing mixing medicine into sugar to make it edible, and the physician therefore made a hot sugar mass in which he mixed the anisole and red-bed juice.

The fine red candies that came out of this experiment worked for the king and since then the candies have been a hit.
