Just a small tip, if ever visiting Gothenburg pay this candyshop a visit, its epic! They call themselves “4gott” and I think they have three stores around Gothenburg but I’ve only been to the one at Östra Hamngatan 5 just outside the centralstation.
I always joke about getting diabetes just by breathing in the air in here, but its pretty much what it is! They have such an incredible wide selection of candy (the pictures only show about half the store) and everything is really fresh.
Most candy in Sweden are sold like this, maybe not the massiveness of it all, but they way you pick your candy by yourself and then you pay by weight. We call it lösgodis, or “loose-candy”. Pretty much all grocery stores have a “lösgodis-hylla” where the kids pick up their Saturday candy (a expression mening that you only get to eat candy on saturdays, widely used to keep Swedish kids candy-cunsumtion down).
I like candy shopping this way – it means you only pick your favorites and you can choose how much you actually want. The prices vary, but around 79-99 SEK/kg (9.30-11 USD/kg).
In my bag you always will find “sour S”, “punch-cones”, “raspberry-boats” and “sour skulls”
How do you buy candy where you live and what are your favorites?
