One of the bonuses of having my sister come visit recently was the stash of yummies she brought me from Norway. Here are three of my favorites. “Salt Sild” or “Salted Herring” is basically black licorice covered in salt. Oh my GOD – heavenly stuff. The yellow bag is full of little monkeys covered in salt.
My other favorite here is Tyrkisk Peber – or Turkish Pepper. I have actually seen this in the food section of Ikea sometimes – if you fancy trying 🙂 It’s a little candy with a spicy sort of powder inside. Highly addictive.
There are a couple more photos on my Flickr stream of the candies close up.
