Awesome place! - Edit

This is the kind of place that I'll keep in my memories forever!

When we entered, there was a handsome guy already greeting us and giving us candy to try out. While we were eating we talked a bit and we found out that he was dating someone from Slovenia (where we're from) and told us some words he knew in our language. We really got into a chat but afterwards he gave us some space so we could pick the candy by ourselves.
The different candy is clearly labeled as vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, gelatine free etc, which is amazing. This way everyone can find something.
The price can get high quite soon, so watch out before putting huge amounts of candy into your bag.
But nevertheless we really loved each kind of candy we picked, so our money was really well spent.
Go check this place out if you're in Amsterdam! :)

Pros: So much delicious candy!, Cute and funny place, Awesome workers

Cons: A bit expensive

My poor teeth! - Edit

The staff at Candy Freaks are insanely helpful and friendly. As you come through the door you'll be showered with free samples and the staff will find you exactly what you're looking for. It's set up like a pick n mix and lots of your childhood favourites that you've not been able to eat for years due to yucky boiled bone gelatine are there as well as lots of delicious chocolate, rock and marshmallows. The one thing to be careful of is that there's different sections for different kinds of sweets; each section has different prices and it's not always clear that there's a difference between them. If you put sweets from different sections into one bag they'll charge you the most expensive price for them all, so watch out!

Really good vegan sweets! - Edit

The shop is really cute and has a great staff. We got free candy at first to try some of the employees "favourites". You have a lot of vegan options, but sadly it's not really cheap.

Pros: lots of vegan options, great staff

Cons: not cheap

Pick 'n' mix with vegan labels - Edit

This store is great as it allows customers to select sweets pick 'n' mix-style from a large range which includes licorice, jelly beans and chocolate covered nuts. All items are labelled as vegan/vegetarian/gluten free, and there are also separate items available such as bags of vegan marshmellows. As an added bonus, staff are very friendly, and there's even international delivery... could be dangerous!

Pros: labels, friendly staff, central location

Cons: not fully veg

Heaven for the vegan with a sweet tooth - Edit

This great candy store is right in the centre of Amsterdam, perfect for picking up a treat when exploring the city. All the candy is labelled for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and a whole host of other dietary requirements. The guy running the shop is so nice and helpful as well, and you can tell he genuinely wants veggies to have the best possible experience in Amsterdam. And when he told me I can order online from Wales it made the experience even better. Now I know where the phrase 'like a kid in a sweet shop' comes from :)

Pros: vegan and gluten free candy, Nice staff, Great location

Candy Heaven - Edit

We couldn't believe how many vegan options they had, it was amazing! We got to sample so many sweets and bought quite a few, they were all delicious! The staff was very friendly and was able to answer all our questions. Everything is labelled as well so it is really easy to find your way around. Too bad their self-made waffles are not vegan but everything else was great!

Pros: biggest vegan candy selection ever, delicious, very friendly staff

omg. vegan winegums - Edit

organic vegan winegums and tons of other video vegan candy. Just great. I am kind of lucky that a store like that doesn't exist where I live. I would go there much too often.

vegan candy heaven - Edit

Candy Freaks provides you with organic, natural, and classic candy, and chocolate. Everything is clearly marked, the most vegan candy is in the organic area. It's very delicious, but expensive, you better savour the candy you've bought.
I still enjoy my bag of candy, but dont' panic, you can buy it online. The melonrings are truly recommendable.

Pros: lots of vegan candy, nice staff

Cons: expensive

Wonderful experience! - Edit

We had a great time there! The woman working there took her time showing us all their vegan flavors, letting us have a taste of everything. Some of them really taste like their non-veg counterparts!
Everything is well labled, organic and very tasty. Very central location!

Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff, Great variety, Authentic taste

Cons: Bit pricey, but worth it!

Great for vegan candy! - Edit

This place is great for vegans who miss gummy candy and chocolatey goodies, which are almost impossible to find elsewhere. The price is a bit higher than the ones you can get elsewhere in Amsterdam, but it's worth it as you know for sure what you are getting. Everything is clearly labeled, and the guy who was working there was really eager, enthusiastic, and gave us lots of candy to try. Will definitely be back!

Pros: clearly labeled, great service, unique products

Cons: more expensive than other candy stores

Great surprise - Edit

We accidently took a look into the shop and when we were about to go, the shopowner didn't let us.
Such a funny and friendly guy (though he forced us to try some of his sweets :) ). We totally missed the vegetarian/vegan sweets, but after he showed them to us we left with two bags of finest sweets plus popcorn as a gift.

They don't beg for facebook likes, they earn them.

Pros: large variety, nice and vegatarian owner

Amazing! - Edit

I had read about this store on here but forgot to write down the location. But today I ended up happening upon it, which can only be an
Act of some divine candy force.

I went in the store and was met by an enthusiastic member of staff, giving me handfuls of vegan sweets to try! It's basically a big pick and mix sweet shop in which half of the shop is vegan and organic. The most vegan sweets I have ever seen in one place. This is the best vegan candy place I've ever come across. Can't recommend highly enough.

Don't tell my dentist.

Pros: Friendly staff, Very clearly marked vegan, The sweets!

Cons: That I don't live in Amsterdam
