Swedish Gingerbread Caramels

I’m not really a sweets person, my taste buds prefer a more savory palate, but I came across these Swedish gingerbread caramels and I HAD TO buy them. I grew up eating caramel flavored hard candies, courtesy of my grandma, so this was something I was definitely a fan of. Add in the gingerbread flavor and how can you go wrong?! I was handing these out to everyone I know, making them taste these cuz’ they were that yummy.

Not only that, but the box is just about the cutest thing ever. The faces on the top and side remind me of Friends With You!. The side patterns are called Snowstar, “a pattern derived from farmhouse tapestries from happy occasions, handed down for generations since viking times, found in weavings know as dukagang.”

I bought these on a cute little shop on 3rd Street, but thankfully you can purchase these online from KALA Style. They sell a box of these for $10, which sounds like a lot for candies, but trust me on this one.

    Never seen those and i´m born and raised in Sweden. The name on the box is wrong; it should be “Svenska karameller” in plural or “Svensk karamell” in singular.

    I agree with Victoria there. Strange to misspell the name on the box. Takes away the cuteness…

    I’m with isch above. What the hell kind of language is “Svenska karamel” supposed to be? I guess it’s in line with other supposedly Swedish/Scandinavian linguistic monstrosities like “Frusen Glädjé”, “Häagen-Dasz” and “Absolut Kurant”. Sad.
