Adults and kids alike will feel the sugar rush when the newest store, a Scandinavian-inspired candy shop opens up on Mainland Street, on Tuesday, July 21.

A candy wonderland of sorts, Karameller (translated from Swedish, means ‘hard candy’ in its various shapes and forms) will be lined with bins full of delicious neon-coloured sweets, and will offer over 100 Swedish candies (sweet, sour, liquorice and chocolate) by the scoop and pre-packaged jars, perfect for gifting.

Each candy is imported from Scandinavia; made from high quality ingredients, free from GMOs, trans fats, or high-fructose corn syrup. Bulk candy will be priced at $3.49 per 100 grams, while a small jar will cost $10, and a large jar $15.

The store is the creation of Louise Schönberg, who is from Sweden, and her Husband, Luis Giraldo, who is from Columbia, and was crafted around a childhood memory of Louise’s, where she would spend her weekly allowance on ‘lördagsgodis’, meaning ‘Saturday sweets, and fill a paper bag with an array of tempting hard candies.

Maybe Swedish candy is a new trend; just recently IKEA revealed they’d be launching their lördagsgodis concept Pick and Mix candy sections in all their Canadian stores.

Karameller will be a bright walk-in space, adhering to Scandinavian minimalistic design principles, think white walls, black accents, and a gorgeous tiled floor at the entry.

Scheduled to open on Tuesday, July 21, Karameller’s hours will be Monday to Friday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and weekends and Holidays 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
