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. . .
