Just in time for Christmas – I decided to gorge myself on Swedish candy to the dismay of my dentist. I stumbled upon this gem down in the West Village [89 Christopher St – New York, NY] and if this small sample of pics isn’t enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, check out their site: Sockerbit.
It’s always fun to come across something new and different in NYC and this was no different. Here is what the site says to describe what it offers, I thought it did a better job than I could so here goes:
Stop in Sockerbit and experience Scandinavian candy culture and the amazing selection of “smågodis”, which translates into little candies. For any Scandinavian person (Swedish, Danish, Finnish or Norwegian) smågodis is part of their everyday life; and most of the Swedes grew up with the tradition of “lördagsgodis”, meaning Saturday sweets. Sockerbit offers a wide open space for people to enjoy the sweet atmosphere when you walk inside a Sockerbit store. In short, it’s sweet, simple and Scandinavian! Scandinavian candy is made with high quality ingredients; free of transfats, colors from nature, free of genetically modified ingredients (GMO). All things combined make these candies delicious!
Outside of the delicious sour coke bottles and more familiar candy there were some more interesting candies I hadn’t seen before. Among them, these wrapped candy tubes for the holidays. I made my friend Ben accompany me on this discovery, he opted to be on the phone while I searched instead. Some recommendations? lakritskonfekt, chockladnallar and skumkantareller are the best in my opinion.
He surrendered to being forced on this excursion once he got candy too. This is a short post as I am stuffing my face with candy instead of elaborating.
