I tried my first lakka candies back in 1998...some friends from Finland bought it to me to Costa Rica...the chocolates with the lakka liquour inside is the most amazing, delightful and unique flavour I have ever tasted ever! I am craving for more of it!

Although not tee-total I very rarely drink (I do the driving) and was given Lakka as a Birthday present. I havnt tasted it yet as I didnt know what it was but now I will have a taste because of the reviews
Thank you all who reviewed

Been in Australia for 40 yrs and my mouth still waters when I think of cloudberries. Just got my first bottle of Lapponia on my birthday from my daughter and it's very good. Also found a reasonably priced c/b AND lingonberry jam source here. I tried the IKEA ones but they're like budget supermarket jam, nothing like the real thing.

This stuff is ridiculously amazing! My girlfriend's mom just came back from Norway and brought 2 bottles with her. It's addicting!

I have to vent! I got this as a gift from some friends coming back from Sweden. They bought it on the occasion of the arrival of my new Samoyed puppy Marangka, which is the Samoyed word for "cloudberry". I've saved it all her life, and she died recently, during a trip. And I come home and found my housesitter drank 3/4 of the bottle!!!!!!!!!

I just had a bottle of Lakka confiscated from my carry-on baggage at the Tucson Airport. It was a gift for my father that a sister sent from Finland. It makes me sick that I forgot about it and lost it. Any ideas if it can be purchased in the US or shippied to the US? It'll likely be a premium price but..I'll pay the price to get my elderly father his Lakka.

Yummy, although the Lakka light has less sugar. Buy cloudberry jam in the deli in IKEA in Britain. Goes nicely with ice cream and the liqieur. Also try lingonberry: that's how Amundsen avoided skurvy. Cloudberry is a related to the Bramble, although low growing. Lingonberry likes it dry, cloudberry likes it wet and soggy. Also grows in N. UK too: it probably recolonised after the Ice Age. You can bet that Neanderthal Man enjoyed the berries. UgUg!

I too have never forgotten the wonderful unique flavour of this liquere. Picked up a bottle in Helsinki back in 1976. Can't find it in Ontario though. If anyone knows of a Canadian source for the liquere, please post it.Thanks. S.M.H. - Mississauga, ON

I FIRST TRIED THIS MANY YEARS AGO WHEN MY FATHER-IN-LAW BOUGHT SOME BACK FROM FINLAND - ONCE TASTED NEVER FORGOTTEN - WENT TO FINLAND 3 YEARS AGO TO VISIT A FRIEND AND WISHED I HAD LOADED THE PLANE (ONLY BOUGHT 3 BOTTLES BACK). DO NOT NORMALLY DRINK HOWEVER YOU JUST CANNOT FORGET THE TASTE - SMOOTH AND VERY MOREISH
