Swedes and Sweets

I can say with absolute certainty that I’ve eaten more candy in the last week than I have in all of 2017.

I do not have a sweet tooth so I don’t completely understand the Swedes love of all things sugary and sweet.

But I imagine their love of sweets must be like my love of all things cheese.

From what I could tell, every grocery store has a candy aisle.  Each candy aisle is filled with bins holding bulk candy.

It was MIND BOGGLING how much candy was there for the taking!

The Swede filled up a bag with candy.  Back at his place we sat down on the couch and I admired a stylish assortment of rocks in a bowl.

NOT ROCKS, as it turned out.


I did happen to try salted licorice my first day in Sweden.

It wasn’t bad.

Unusual, but not bad.

This sugar thing may grow on me. . .
