svea choklad



This tin is a flea market find, from Helsinki in October. It's really beautiful, with all kinds of butterflies round it (everyone's different, and there's also their species in Swedish and Latin), and quite large - about 22 cm in circumference. I probably found it only because my friend J was with me; he seems to have good flea market karma. Some people do, they always find something nice - like miss A, who is the queen of fleamarket finds - and some don't. I don't usually find anything special, or maybe it's also the fact that I want the stuff I buy be too special for it to come home with me, cheap or not.

On the lid it says 'AB Svea Choklad Norrköping'. Does Svea Choklad still exist, Swedes out there?

I still don't know what I'm going to keep there - but clearly that should be something really nice.

Tuo purkki on kyllä edelleen aivan mahtava!

Svea Choklad became Candelia in 1993 which in turn was bought by sweets manufacturer Cloetta in 1998. Svea Choklad was well known for its chocolate sweet "Polly".

The Svea Choklad production facilities in Norrköping was closed down in the 1990s.
