Love From Sweden: Lös Godis

with 3 comments

Lös godis: very much my one true love. Imagine this: an entire wall covered in all kinds of candy, from salted licorice to chocolate covered rum balls, all to be carefully selected and placed in a colorful bag.

Weigh it at the checkout, raise your eyebrows when you realize how much was actually in that bag, and then smirk internally when you say to yourself, “who cares, it’s Saturday!” Then take it all home and pour the lös godis into a bowl where — for maybe for a few seconds — you enjoy the multicolored glory. But soon it’s all consumed, an empty, wrinkled bag with a fine layer of sugar your only remnants.

  1. Hei Anna!
    I’m an American spending 6 months in Finland (Åbo) and the candy experience is very similar here! The first time I entered the candy shop (and the movie theater as well) I was overwhelmed with the amount and variety of candy covering the walls. Fantastic!
    I still haven’t gotten used to the salted licorice yet though :/
