This is actually not just a candy; it is a Polkagris, which translates to “polka pig”. Ask any Swede what this is, and they will definitely either think you are a total weirdo, or their eyes will mist over with longing for the days of their youth. Unbelievably, there is only one town in all of Sweden which is known for the Polkagris, Gränna; also unbelievably, 9 out of 10 Swedes say they have passed through there while on summer holidays when they were a child, and were given a stick. Think of it as a pacifier with a hearty dose of sugar -- kind of a contradiction, but parents swear by them. We had these as part of the Swedish collection in 2007.  After last Christmas so many people asked for them, we are trying to keep the in stock year-round!
