Bamsemums (bearchu) is a bear shaped chocolate-covered marshmallow candy manufactured by Nidar in Trondheim, Norway.

History[edit]

The first bear shaped chocolate-covered marshmallow candy was invented and manufactured in 1962 by the chocolate factory Bouquet d'Or, in Ascq (now Villeneuve-d'Ascq), France[1][2][3] under the name 'Petit ourson'.

Some confectionaries have started to make their own bear shaped chocolate-covered marshmallow candy as the Bouquet d'Or's one, as Nidar in 1975.
