Swedish Fish

Anyone ever try Swedish Fish candies. Very addictive. The come in various flavors and sizes. Walgreens here in St.Louis sells them by the bag. Try em and you will like them. They are kinda like chewy little gummy fish shaped candies.

    Swedish fish candies? are you serious?

    I never heard of 'em.

    What is it...sort a like candied herring?

    Man...what will the Swedes think of next? gummy Vasterbotten?

    Swedish fish are merely fish shaped gummy candies, and that is where their resemblance to fish ends. They are really good. I like their texture better than most other gummy candies.

    I guess sarcasm doesn't translate well on paper.
    If the "candied herring" line didn't show it well enough, I was hoping the "gummy vasterbotten" comment would've driven the point home.

    Why would I "ask" for them?
    They are hanging in a bag in the candy aisle!

    Ive been eating swedish fish since I was about 6, thats 24 years ago. My local candy store in the bronx sold them from a huge glass jar, mostly the red ones. I absolutely love them to this day, luckily they are in the vending machine here at work in the yellow bag. Owls go hooo.

    I think the first crime I ever commited was paying .25 and taking 30 Sweedish fish from the changemaker jar when I was about 6 years old.
    Good Times.

    I have seen bags of them in the candy aisle. They are always red. I always assumed they were cinnamon so I've never tried them. What flavor are they? Do they have the same consistency as gummi-type candies or more like gum drops?

    They are some kind of Berry, I think strawberry. I have also seen grape, lime, and lemon. The texture is different than a gummi bear. Not as "springy" I guess. They are chewey and kind of sticky on the inside. Softer than a gummi bear. Texture is like a cinnamon bear, but no cinnamon flav.

    Thanks. I'll have to give them a try.

    All kidding aside, swedish fish are the best of the "gummy" candies. Their flavors are unique and simply jump out at you, and they don't stick together as they have a coating that prevents them from getting sticky. A great candy. Used to buy them all the time, but somehow got out of the habit. Now that I'm reminded of them I'll have to look them up again. Thanks.

    Why are fish-shaped colored and flavored gelatin candies "Swedish"? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Re the Swedish fish, I used to always get them when we went to Sears when I was little and they still had their snack counter. They were sooooooooo good. The ones I tend to find today always seem stale in comparison, so I don't get them anymore. They are a fond childhood memory.
