The first branded candy

RIESEN was Germany's very first candy brand. RIESEN fans all over the world still love the particularly intensive chocolaty taste. The secret lies in the rich caramel filling, which is enrobed by a thick layer of dark chocolate.


Dark chocolate on the outside, rich chocolate caramel on the inside – a particularly long-lasting chewy treat. The inimitable, intensively chocolaty taste is due to the special blend of selected Gavoa cocoa beans.

From "Storck's 1 Penny RIESEN" to today: the history of Germany's first candy brand.
