My cravings for Swedish goodies has been a
bitch lately so my lovely man took me into
central London to the shop Totally Swedish
this afternoon where I spent £20 on Salmiak
and some other stuff I've been longing for for
a while.

I got:
Salta Katten tablettaskar
Gammaldags Ideal makaroner
Wasa Frukost

I totally understand your cravings for salmik! I cannot live without it for very long times at all. One good thing about Ikea is that they sell "Salta Siller" there so when I'm out of salmiak I can go there to get some (pretty much only reason I go there).

Love salmiak! Funny that they have a "swedish" store, are the owners from sweden?

Mrs Munster: I stack up on Lingonsylt and Salmiak every time I go to IKEA too, which isn't that often. (I hate crowds.)
I do have nice friends that send over some Salta Katten tablettaskar at times. (I hate the new stuff in bags.)
It's rather funny that a country that are so multi kulti don't have stuff like this at the supermarket, I mean, they have everything Indian and Polish you can ever desire but no Salmiak. :))

Zizzi: The owners are Swedish. There's TONS of Swedes living in London so I guess that's why they started it.
It sucks to have to go into central London (takes ages to get to one point to the other in London) every time I want something I find yummy.

Salmiak was one of the things I missed the most when I lived in the UK. :)

Now that I'm back in Sweden I miss Quavers and salt and vinegar crisps.

I love Djungelvrål!

Punk In Writing: There's no salt and vinegar chips in Sweden? :O
Too bad they would get badly crushed otherwise we could have swapped; :))

A Red Lipstick: Yeah, thank G*d it doesn't contain pork like almost all Swedish candy.
