In Australia, lolly is the slang word used to describe candies, sweets and confectionary. In this sweet post, I’ll be telling you about my favourite types!
Lollies are normally 12.90 NOK per hectogram (100 g) at stores and so I only purchase them when they’re on special for 6.90 NOK per hg. I’m not a big fan of liquorice or chocolate pieces, so what you’ll see is my special mix of preferences.
Sour skulls (sure skaller) are split into two yummy flavours of lemon and strawberry. They’re so sour that you don’t really taste the fruits until the end.
Sour cherries (sure kirsebær) contain edible stalks that are soft and easy on the teeth (if that’s possible with lollies)! They taste like glazed cherries with a bit of sour thrown in, but not as much as the skulls.
Sour bananas (sure bananer) are probably my favourite type of lolly you can get in Norway. They don’t taste like bananas per se (maybe towards the end) but more like a sour marshmallow. But they’re not as sticky as marshmallows and take a little longer to chew because of that initial sour burst.
Bonbon mix is a tough ball of sugar that can last for a while if don’t chew on it. It’s drier than other types of lollies, but your tongue doesn’t care so long as it gets to enjoy the lolly’s sweet, muskier flavour.
