Candy People: The Company Behind the Swedish Candy Revolution!
A post on Facebook recently read "Houston we no longer Have a problem" referring to the fact that customers can now find Swedish Pick and Mix Candy at IKEA in Houston. It is true that there is something special about the Swedish candy that Swedes miss when they live abroad. However it is not just the Swedes that appreciate the Swedish candy. American consumers have started to open up their eyes to the Swedish "Pick and Mix" concept. SACC-Texas met with Robert Engstr?m at Candy People, the company behind the Swedish candy revolution in the US market.
