Located at 89 Christopher Street in Manhattan's West Village.
To a colorful display of loose candy!
"Sugar cubes." Sockerbit's eponymous marshmallows, available plain or strawberry-flavored.
Dumle & Hemkola
Dumle, pictured left, are chocolate-covered, slightly nutty toffee caramels, and a Swedish candy classic. On the right are Hemkola, hazelnut chews (think hazelnut Starburst.)
Mariane & Napoleon
Mariane are chocolates covered in a hard peppermint shell, an interesting reversal of most mint-chocolate sweets you'll find stateside.
The Napoleon candies are hard licorice filled with intense salmiak powder, not unlike the famous Turkisk Peppar (Turkish Pepper) candies, which are the same thing, but with pepper added to the salmiak. Not for the faint of heart.
This store has marshmallow dolphins. That is all.
Happy Fruits & Geisha
Fruit chews and chocolate covered hazelnut pralines.
Punsch Punsch & Rabarberpinnar
Punsch Punsch are liqueur chocolates; they're sweet and sugary, and the taste of alcohol isn't overwhelming.
Rabarberpinnar are the first of many flavored licorices—with a gummy exterior and powdery interior—in this slideshow. These ones are rhubarb (you read that right) and peach flavored. They're quite good, with a nice mellow sweetness.
Choco Karamel & Sura Soda Pops
Crispy chocolate caramels and sour fruity soda gummies ("sura" is Swedish for sour.)
Dansk Skalle & Mjölkchoklad Bananchips
Sour apple skulls colored like the flag of Denmark and milk chocolate bananachips.
Cola Flaskor & Mangogrodor
Gummy cola bottles and mango frogs.
Fazer Blå & Choko Ljus
Solid milk chocolates and chocolate-covered caramels with a faint hint of mocha.
Pepparkakskola & Lussekattskola
Gingerbread and saffron bun toffees. They taste just like what they describe, and I'm very happy they both exist.
Lemon taffy, could best be described as tasting like chewy lemonade.
Kanderade Häxvrål, Cocosar, Screech Jordgubb
An intense mix of sweet and salty licorices including coconut licorice with black licorice powder and a chewy black licorice covered by a chewy strawberry exterior.
Milk chocolate müsli clusters with raisins and yogurt peanut clusters.
Fylld Röd Lakrits
Small (and very pretty) fruit chews.
Skumbatar & Sura Cola Nappar
Chewy fruity marshmallow boats and sour cola pacifiers.
Hokus Pokus Kola/Salt & Screech Salta Hallon
The Hokus Pokus salty hard caramel and licorice candies are very challenging to start, but once the intense salt subsides, the sweet caramel and bitter licorice blend nicely.
The Salta Hallon—with a raspberry exterior and licorice interior— are also salty, but less so.
Salta Tigerhuvud & Lakritskonfekt
Salty licorice tigers and Swedish licorice allsorts.
Skum Elefantfötter & Salta Salmiak Pastiler
These foam elephant feet are made from caramel marshmallow and licorice, although the molasses-y flavor overwhelms the licorice (not a bad thing if you're black licorice-averse.) The salmiak lozenges on the right are probably one of the more intense candies in the store.
Easily the best product description in the store. Tastes like cherry.
Äkta Krokant & Rambo Twist
Crunchy chocolate-covered toffee and chewy strawberry and vanilla.
Colabitar & Sur Skumfisk
Sour cola licorice sticks and sour marshmallow fish.
Sura Wattenmelonsbitar & Stora Hjartan
Sour watermelon licorice and raspberry hearts.
Sura Skallar & Mini Stekta Ägg
Sour skulls and mini fried eggs (they're actually citrus-flavored, and don't taste anything like eggs.)
Sura Persikor & Sura Bumlingar
Sour gummy peaches and sour hard "boulders."
Kola Kantareller & Ovaler Vattenmelon
The caramel marshmallow mushrooms have a nice, toasty flavor, while the watermelon ovals taste like, well, gummy watermelon.
These fizzy soda bottles are a bit intense, but the sour sugar simulates fizz in a really fun way.
If you don't want to mix and match, you can also buy prepackaged candies for $9.95.
The Kex chocolate bars have crisped rice, and the Kola variety is crazy delicious, especially if you like the feeling of toffee bits in your teeth.
Daim bars are flat bars of chocolate-covered crunchy almond caramel.
