Watermelon Fruit Crisps

Brand: Nim’s Cost: £1.15 Found at: Tesco   What do you get when you take the water out of a watermelon? I’m eating it, and I still don’t know. What I do know is that this is not some sanitized version of a watermelon – the greatest hits, so to speak – this is the... Continue Reading →

Sweet Potato Crackers

Brand: Göteborgs Cost: 29.90KR Found at: Willy:s   I am totally on board with this cracker. It is a cracker that knows its job: to effectively ferry cheese into my mouth. Crackers, to my mind, are not a snack food in themselves. They’re great to munch on – and I’ve definitely been known to munch... Continue Reading →

Nut Butter Balls

Brand: Deliciously Ella Cost: £1.80 Found at: Morrisons   This snack is offensive. I am offended by this snack.   It is such a flagrant waste of money. Worse still, it’s genuinely unappetizing. It’s a luxury tax on health nuts, and while I love me a tax on the wealthy, this blatant highway robbery makes... Continue Reading →

Powdered Black Sesame Dessert

Brand: Torto Cost: 38 KR Found At: Asian Market When I first moved to a foreign country (in China, back in 2014), I was completely overwhelmed. It took me a long time to adjust to a place where everything was different – the language, the culture, the layout of the city – and I struggled... Continue Reading →

Ground Cherries

Brand: Top Cost: Found At: Coop When I first encountered these on a fruit plate, I thought that it was quaint that the Swedes thought cherry tomatoes were a fruit. In the few months I’ve been here I’ve seen these on cakes, in pies, and as decorative elements in fruit displays and I’ve always chuckled... Continue Reading →

Kumquat

Found at: Plantagen Cost: 250 KR per tree   I love kumquats. I can eat kumquats until my mouth is raw from the citrus. When I lived in Japan, I would buy an entire plastic carton full of kumquats and finish them all in one sitting. Of course, like any good American girl, it took... Continue Reading →

Passionfruit

Cost: 6.95KR Found at: Coop I’d heard about passionfruit before. In fact, I’d assumed that I’d eaten it before. It is the kind of thing you hear about – the kind of thing which other things are flavored as: passionfruit gum, passionfruit ice cream, 2-in-1 passionfruit hair shampoo and revitalizer. It seemed unlikely that I... Continue Reading →

Peanut Butter Ginger Chews

Brand: Sina Cost: 7KR Found at: Asian Market   Everyone should keep a box of these in their car. If you’ve never had them, I recommend a trip to your nearest Asian grocery store. They are a chewy, ginger-based candy that are about an inch long and about the consistency of a caramel. They come... Continue Reading →
