Did you know that Swedes consume ~15 kg candy per person and year? …and they are still looking good!

Yes….. it seems to be true – Swedes are candy lovers! Apparently Swedes have the highest candy consumption on earth. While Swedes consume on average 15 kg candy per person and year, the average person in Europe consumes around 7-8 kg per year.

Since I have been living in Sweden my candy consumption has increased as well. I was wondering why…..and I came to the conclusion either it is the air? Or it is because of these wonderful, good smelling candy shelves which you can find in each supermarket! Fact is, that I cannot entere a grocery store without passing these shelfes and leav the shop without anything sweet. I whish we would have those shelfes in Germany too!

Seriously for all candy lovers, living in Sweden means living in paradise!

And because candy everyday is not enough Swedes assigned (every) Saturday as candy day. Swedes love their sweets.
