In 1958, Malaco, a Swedish confectionery manufacturer, decided to expand its business by exporting a few of their products to North America. The Malaco exporting business grew and in late 1960's and early 1970's Swedish Fish and Swedish Berries were developed specifically for the North American market. As you have probably already guessed, it was named Swedish Fish because it was developed in Sweden. Today Swedish Fish are made made in both Sweden and Canada and owned by the Cadbury Adams Company.
The little boy that I gave them to, ripped them open and were in his mouth before he opened his other gift. They were number 1 on his list. My only disappointment was that he would not share.
The product is fresh but I just like the red ones and I thought the red ones were spicy...
Like Jason, I also bought these on an impulse (for a friend). She loved them and said they were delicious!
Who doesn't like these tasty fish!? Red fish, green fish, yellow fish... yummy fish. This was a great impulse buy for my sweet tooth.
I wish they still sold packets of just the red swedish fish. Not really a fan of the other flavours.
The product was fresh and good. I was also very pleased with the quick shipping I received. Will be buying from this site again. Many thanks!
