Treat your friends with Russian sweets. The main thing is to find unusual ones. The sweets produced at a candy factory “Red October” are already known in other countries but “Ptich’e moloko” (“Bird’s milk”), “Grilyazh” or “Ozersky souvenir” will surprise you! Linden honey from Bashkiria, “Belevskaya pastila” and, of course, cedar cones jam – there are no such things anywhere in the world! The most important thing is that everything can be brought home safely, and honey and jam can be kept for more than one year.
