This Week In Candy

This weekend Allison and I decide to take a quick road trip to Montreal. Montreal is a great place to visit, with lots of fun food options most notably our inevitable stop at Schwartz Deli for a smoked meat sandwich.  For some reason Allison and I also have a love for the IKEA in Montreal. We find it has a few things not available at other IKEAs, and the layout seems a little better.  While visiting the IKEA I came across these special IKEA cookies (pictured above).  As you can see, instead of featuring all of the letters of the alphabet they only have the letters I, K, E, A. That got me thinking, I wonder how many words, other than IKEA, one can spell with these letters?  I wonder if there are more words in Swedish that you can spell? Send us any words you come up with (you can use the same letter as many times as you want), and we'll try and make a master list.

As you may have noticed we're a little late with This Week In Candy, this is both because we're now on our not so reliable summer schedule, and because of Victoria Day. Victoria day is a holiday here in Canada where we celebrate the Queen that gave Canada its independence. Speaking of which, as you may or may not know, Canada is turning 150 years old this year, and we're on the hunt for special editions treats to celebrate this occasion.  We've found a few, some we even plan on reviewing. Make sure to keep up with all our Canadian snack finds on Twitter and Facebook. This week we're also going to post a new episode of Chris, Why Would You Eat That?!!, so stay tuned.

Going with the IKEA theme, this week we have a special review-a-thon going on.  Every day this week we're posting a new review of some candy we came across at IKEA.  You don't always associate candy with do it yourself furniture, but they actually have a pretty awesome collection.  I'm not sure how much of it is authentically Swedish, but I don't really care either.  Click here to read the first  IKEA candy review, and make sure to check back here every night for a new review.
