Around this time of year, many companies like to take their employees out to a “julbord” dinner. The phrase “julbord” literally translates to “Christmas” (jul) and “table” (bord), and it always involves some massive portions of traditional Swedish “holiday” food. I call it “holiday” food because it’s the same kind of food you would eat during Easter and Midsummer too!
Chewy candy. Hard candy. Soft candy. Licorice flavored, sour, and often times fruity. There is nothing quite like Swedish godis – candy. It is, by far, the best thing about going to the grocery store. It’s another thing that makes someone #TrulySwedish.
