Polkagris is basically the Swedish version of a candy cane minus the hook shape. However, these days polkagris can come in a wide variety of flavors, shapes and colors besides the classic peppermint stick. And a "polkagriskokeri" is basically where polkagris is made. In other words, it is a candy cane factory! How is it made? It is sugar dough which is boiled (to "koka"), kneaded, pulled and then twisted into the desired shape before it hardens.
