Swedish fish (candy): where?

  • k

Yes it's an odd craving, but I'm not made of stone.

Where can one find good (fresh) Swedish fish?

Will travel.

  1. I don't think your request is strange at all. I love them. Something about the undefinable "red flavor". I know the UCLA Candy Store carries them. It is on Floor 1 of the Ackerman Student Union.

    1. Sparky's at Universal Citywalk always has a bin of them. And if you happen to be with a badge-holding universal employee you get a discount. However, Citywalk charges a fortune to park so it may not be worth it.

      1. Most Sweet Factorys carry them.

        1. Cost Plus also carries them.

          1. olson's scandinavian delicatessen
            5660 w. pico blvd, LA

            ikea's swede shops
            burbank, carson

            1. I buy mine at Sears.

              1. There's a candy store in the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square that has them. I think it's called Sweet Sue.
                (I love them too!)

                1. Looks like you can get them online.

                    1. If you live in the Eagle Rock area, Cross and Brown, a general store has them along with other hard to find old fashioned candy.

                            Didn't Tudor Cottage close? <sniff>

                          2. Bed bath & Beyond. Usually right by the register along with bunch of other candy. I can't seem to get out of the store without buying them.

                            1. Rite Aid (or is it Walgreens?) Also, Blockbuster Video stores.
