Papabubble shop, Lisbon

Lisbon’s sweetest new shop just opened last week in Baixa, just around the corner from the pedestrian Rua Augusta and the Design and Fashion Museum. Follow the tram 28 tracks down Rua da Conceição and you’ll see the renovated façade of a centuries-old shop now showcasing all kinds of colorful candy. It’s called “Papabubble,” a new shop that’s also opened in Barcelona, New York, Amsterdam, and Tokyo. Everything is chemical-free and handmade on the premises, offering over thirty fruity flavors. They come in a variety of shapes, and can be molded into anything that the client wishes. All it takes is water, glucose, sugar, and some flavors, and you can have personalized candy to enjoy yourself or to share at a party. Prices range from 2.50 to 30 euros depending on the size.
The shop is open every day except Sundays, from 10:30AM to 7:30PM. The exact address is Rua da Conceição, 117-119.
