Alyonka Signature Store

A confectionery chain selling nostalgia


One of the main symbols of Soviet times, Alyonka chocolate is equally famous for its creamy taste and its wrapper with the image of a girl in a kerchief. Both appeared in the early 1960s thanks to the USSR's special food program: one of its tasks was to create chocolate with a unique taste and a recognizable design. So Alyonka became the confectionery standard. Even despite the differences in the recipe, the famous confectionery factories Krasny Oktyabr and Rot Front issued chocolate in the same wrapper.

Today, the legendary chocolate is manufactured by the United Confectioners factory, which also produces other well-known nostalgic desserts such as the candies Bird's Milk and Autumn Waltz. The Company has more than twenty stores in Moscow selling popular candies. The factory store in Mayakovskaya street also houses a café confectionery, where you can taste ice cream à la Soviet Union and apples baked in honey.
