International Godis: This Swedish candy was awesome
...and I bought it at a furniture store
A while ago, I had to be in Hannover for a work specific test. On the way there I stopped by a well known furniture store because I was early, and because I wanted to buy some Godis. Or 'candy' for those who do not understand Swedish.
Back then, I went with three distinct Items: Love Hearts, Moose Head and Bilar. That word means cars by the way. And Ahlgrens Bilar are definitely Sweden's best selling car, as there are tons of them in a single little baggie.
They are also Sweden's best car. They won't break down and go infinite miles to the gallon. : D
A Bag of Cars.
Since it had been around Christmas when I bought all that Candy, some of the Cars were actually Tree-shaped, but the rest was all the same. Those did not last very long.
The Love Hearts tasted like a mixture of Berries, and they were really nice as well. Only the Moose Heads were undefinable in the beginning. I later found out that they were supposed to taste like Cola.
The only Thing I regret is that I did not buy more Candy back then.
In my Eyes, the Swedes make some of the finest Godis in the World. Like Ahlgrens Bilar, or even Polkagrisar. Maybe I am a little biased that way though, since most of my Childhood Holidays were spend up north in the Land of Moose, Wikings and Dala Horseys.
I also have to take a longer Journey tomorrow, and it is one where I might end up driving past an Ikea on the way back. And maybe I will even make a short Pit Stop right there. Who knows.
