Karameller, translated from Swedish, means ‘hard candy’ in its various shapes and forms. Karameller was created from a childhood memory.
As a tradition, Swedish children would receive a weekly allowance. Most often, this windfall would be spent on ‘lördagsgodis’, meaning ‘Saturday sweets’. Setting out on a bike with the neighbourhood kids, Louise would excitedly arrive at the shop, filling her paper bag with sweets. While the others would savour each one, Louise would quickly eat it all. It would only make sense for her to bring this nostalgic memory to Vancouver.
Each candy is imported from Scandinavia; made from high-quality ingredients, free of GMOs, trans fats, and high-fructose corn syrup.
