Here’s something to make your Ikea shopping even more fun. The affordable Swedish DIY furniture maker is bringing over the tradition of Lördagsgodis or “Pick and Mix Sweets”. Basically it’s an array of loose traditional Swedish candies yours for picking. The sweet treats are free from trans fats, high-fructose corn syrup and GMOs so you can feel less guilty on binging during your couch shopping. Major cities like Miami and Los Angeles have already started selling the candy, with more starting it later this summer and Canada in the fall.
The dandy candy shop will be inside Ikea’s Swedish Food Market areas. They are offering 45 different candies like gummies, chocolate, marshmellow and licorice. You can mix and match the candies at $7.99 a pound. You can feel like a kid wanting to be inside Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory all over again and scoop your own.
“Lördagsgodis” is an from an old Scandinavian tradition. Also known as “Saturday candy,” the day of the week when children would be allowed to go to candy stores. Saturday can now be everyday!
