My first visit to the store was purely by chance.
We were leaving lunch at Joan’s on Third and I was looking out the window as we drove away and saw the Sockerbit store front out of the corner of my eye. I had to pull over immediately and find parking, so I could go check it out. I’d heard of the store before, but had never been yet, and didn’t realize it was so close to a lot of places I’d been to before!
Sockerbit has quite a large selection of candy (lots of licorice especially) and they are all made without high fructose corn syrup, GMO’s, or unnatural food coloring! So you can feel slightly better about binging on their candies?
Good enough for me!
All the candy names are in Swedish, but they have funny little translations below. Here are some of my favorites:
Screech Salta Hallon = slightly salty licorice covered in sweet raspberries
Doppade Floppy = strawberry marshmallow dolphins from the great chocolate ocean
Greven = noble chocolate smuggled from the palace to our store
Stora Hjartan = an entire raspberry field squeezed into this juicy heart
Salta Salmiak Pastiler = warning! very salty licorice. only for the brave
Cola Huggormar = jelly snakes that crawled out of a cola can
Skumbananer = baby banana marshmallows, always ripe for picking
Sura Vattenmelonsbitar = sour watermelon sticks that will refresh you even in the gobi desert
The candy is $12.99/lb and they are all priced the same, so it doesn’t matter what you put in the bag, there’s no price difference! Keeping it nice and easy. They also have some home and kitchen goods along the right side of the wall and in the back.
It’s right by the original Farmer’s Market and the Grove, so the next time you’re in the area, definitely go check it out! (unless you’re a crazy person that doesn’t like candy?) Load up on candy to put in Easter eggs or give as gifts any time of year! You can also place orders online if you don’t live nearby.
