It all started with a sweet factory in Holme-Olstrup – a little town outside Næstved. One day the owner Michael Spangsberg was trying out some new brown sweets, when his son Nicolai suddenly burst out: "Yuk, they’re all damp! They look like dog farts". And that's how the idea of creating sweets with rude names came about, such as Mågeklatter (Seagull droppings), Store Babser (Big boobies), Tisse-bleer (Wee wee nappies), Øre-voks (Ear wax), and of course the famous Hundeprutter (Dog farts).
These outrageous sweets quickly became popular, and the sales figures shot through the roof at rocket speed. The sweets were so well received that people all over Denmark began sending in their own ideas for funny names for sweets to the sweet factory in Holme-Olstrup, which in the following year would become known as the town with the theme park with the best and craziest rides.
Due to the sweets' popularity, school children and nurseries quickly began visiting the sweet factory in the hope of learning more about the sweet production. Unfortunately this was not possible because of the strict hygiene requirements in the production are. Michael Spangsberg therefore opened his own BonBon-Land with a small sweet workshop; where children could do things such as learn to make their own lollipops.
BonBon-Land quickly grew and with its 130,000 m2 is currently one of Denmark's most popular theme parks.
Every year, more than 60 tones of chips, 130,000 soft ices and 80,000 hot dogs are sold in the park. If you were to put all the hot dog sausages sold every season in a row, they would measure 25 km in length!
