I keep finding myself yearning for hockey pulver, djunelvralkasdf, and other potentially erroneously salted candies from countries that aren't the USA. And now the time has come to ask for assistance from the amazing International Coalition of Duders(ICD) . If you live in a country where this nonsense is available, I will gladly pay for the items themselves, shipping and a bit more to make it worth your while. Or I can enact an international trading extravaganza if there's anything in my native country that I take for granted and that others would like. Let me know if you can help a duder out!

I'm a Swede currently living in Switzerland, so I'm afraid I can't help you out. That said, I'd really recommend you try "Turkisk Peppar" if you haven't had the chance. It's right up there with Djungelvrål.. And now I'll be obsessing about this all week.

Thank you for the suggestion! I've always been intrigued by... non American candy and treats and I've finally hit my limit on wanting. Now I need them! So if there's anyone who can hook me up with some crazy stuff, let me know. I need it!

It's not Swedish, but I ordered some candies from dutchsweets.com that I liked. There was a salted licorice shaped like herring, and the stroopwafels are good when warmed up a bit. There are no import prices to pay and a decent selection of salted snacks, so go wild!

@oobir: Welp, I know what I'm ordering today.

...and drink it down with this (don't actually do that, unless you want to get stupid drunk too fast)!

@tirion: At least I've got my next holiday to sweden figured out. A nice evening, and a nice hospital visit.

Do you have a Cost Plus World Market near you?

I generally find their selection to be "American safe" (And an excellent source of Tim Tams), but my girlfriend has brought back salted black chewy things from World Market before.

@crazybagman: I live in Norway, but we get the same crap here. I hate it, as I hate licorice in general. But if no one else steps up I can probably help. I won't be able to work fast on this with work being kinda crazy these days, but hell, send me a PM or something if you still need your disgusting fix!

I don't know about where you live but in the USA they have international supermarkets that carry all the crazy salted licorice you could ever want and more including Japanese Kit Kats.

@crazybagman what I can tell, Finland and Sweden have about the same stuff generally - I would guess that this extends to rest of northern European countries. There are places that sell that stuff online (like Oobir pointed out), but you can't get everything and prices are about 3-5 times of they cost in Finland.

I got this image from this blog. Pretty much every candy pictured here is a good choice (I am not sure if Black Domino is a candy - all Dominos [~Oreos] I have seen have been cookies. And Muumi-thing is bubblegum.)

Personal recommendations of what you definitely want to try: Turkish Pepper, Heksehyl/Noitapilli and Musta Pantteri (saltier version of the Pantteri).

Now ask yourself, what kind of candy has to be represented by an image of angry jungle predator? Also there are variations that have taste of tar added to them.

Yeah, and if you get change try try the turkish pepper + vodka combo - you can get various salmiakki liquids to mix with your booze.
