I can’t think of any sweets uniquely connected with my town (Borås) but there is a caramel factory in a neighbouring town (Alingsås, 40k from here). The Extra Strong Lemon Drops (to the right in the collage) for example are made there.
Marabou is a Swedish chocolate brand, which has been very successful ever since it was launched in 1916. It is available in a number of European countries and also (I learn from Wikipedia) sold by IKEA in the US, Canada and Australia. Originally, the symbol of Marabou was a stork but at the end of the 1960s it was changed to a rounded “M”. Say “Mmm…” to a Swedish person and we want chocolate NOW! :) In childhood I much preferred milk chocolate, but when I later became lactose intolerant, I had to change my taste!
Läkerol is a Swedish brand of candies founded in 1909 by a man name Ahlgren, and therefore every candy is stamped with the letter A. The pastilles today are sugar-free and come in a variety of flavors. Cassis (blackcurrant) is one of my favourites.
If the examples above are not sweet enough for you, here is a mix of ‘home made’ sugary sweets from our Autumn Market:
