Russia has a long tradition in producing tasty chocolate. So if you plan to bring gifts for family and friends from your trip to Russia, you should take chocolate into account.

Among the best brands are "Krasnyi Oktyabr" (Red October) and "Babaevskiy". The latter was established in 1804 and is even said to be the oldest confectionary in Russia.

The most famous product of company "Krasnyi Oktyabr" is a chocolate known as "Alenka". It can easily be recognised by its packaging with a smiling Soviet girl.

Russian Chocolate can be bought in one of the countless small grocery stores, which are called "Produkty" and of course also in the big supermarkets (Hyper Market).

A 100 gram chocolate bar of good quality chocolate sets you back something between 50 and 70 Rubles (2009).

    "Krasnyi Oktyabr" (Red October) and "Babaevskiy" - these two have merged with Rot Front (a very right name for a chocolate bar) and now make a holding
