  • Scandinavian Gathering
  • Short Date Sales
  • This Months Featured Product

New Products:

We don't have many new products this month, but have received a new shipment of crispbread, herrings and chocolate, so all stocked up again. Unfortunately our supplier was out of dill herrings, so have not been able to stock up on that yet. However, good news is: new herring flavours coming soon...

Scandinavian festival - Market Day:

Come and visit us at the Market next weekend - We will bring heaps of Scandinavian Favourites! As we can't bring our entire range, to make sure you don't get disappointed -place you order today, choose 'I intend to pickup' as your shipping destination.

Do you remember the 'Blå Fiskar' candy? They are also called Spickesill - a Menthol/Salmiak flavoured hard lolly often used to make Candy Shots. We now have the essence to make the Candy Shot, but can also be used as flavouring for ice cream or why not try these yummy Cupcakes.
