In some ways Smųrbukk came to Norway in 1928. This year, founder Alf Bergene visited a candy trade show in Germany. The exhibition was full of sweet candies and delicious chocolates, but it was a very special caramel that caught Alf's interest and palate. He decided quickly to get hold of the recipe. Back home in Norway, he gave the name karamellen Smųrbukk - by the renowned and beloved folk tale about a brave, well-fed boy nicknamed "Butterball." As the children of Norway grew up, they moved across the world and carried with them a love of Smųrbukk. Soon the little caramel was being exported all over the planet. Each batch is made exactly the same way, slowly cooking the sugar in copper kettles until the perfect texture is reached, so no matter where you are in the world, you can be assured you're enjoying the true flųtekaramellen.
