Fodor's Review

Russian-made chocolates make a great, unexpected souvenir from Russia, and those from Moscow's Krasny Oktyabr (Red October) factory are the best. You can buy various kinds of individually wrapped candies—Krasnaya Shapochka (Little Red Riding Hood), Mishka Kosolapy (Little Clumsy Bear), Alyonka (whose wrapper features a girl wearing a scarf), and Yuzhnaya Noch (Southern Night). Most of them retain Soviet-style wrappers. The chocolates are widely

available in supermarkets and kiosks, but the best assortment, including gift boxes and chocolate animal figures, is at the main store, just north of the Arbat district.
