Candis in Skien is run by two icelanders, Halldor and Erla. They moved to Norway in 2019 with a dream of opening a unique ice cream bar with their own production.
With a big heart for ice cream, they wanted to create a whole new concept out of the ordinary. The experience of enjoying fresh ice cream creates so many good memories for everyone, big and small. All the ice cream is handmade from scratch with Norwegian raw materials and inspired by Iceland.
