Trendland sends out “a dose of inspiration” everyday and I can’t say I’m always riveted by the news they present. However today they highlighted Klara G’s photography and it brought back a whole bag of memories. Childhood memories. Swedes of my generation were usually only allowed to eat sweets on Saturdays when they were young. We went to the supermarket, chose our bag of glucose and ate like there was no tomorrow.
There were special Saturday Sweet packs with a little selection of lollipops, pastilles and other gelatinous joys. I loved the Smurf pastilles.
Dumle: chewy chocolate-covered toffee lollipops were nice too.
And don’t forget liqourice strings!
What was your favourite sweet when you were a kid?
This would be mine… Pick n’ mix.
