Lakris

For the most part the average American isn't that crazy about licorice, but it's certainly popular in the Nordic countries.

When we drew names for our annual gift exchange, SwingDaddy selected a pal who loves licorice (and perhaps non-coincidentally is of Scandinavian descent.) So, my mission was clear on the last overseas trip. Find unique sweets to bring home!

And boy, I had no idea the variety that was possible.









The store clerk was eyeing me oddly for photographing the candy selection, but it was just fascinating.

I am not much of a licorice fan, but licorice with chocolate is a different story. Yum
