It does take a bit of getting used to the intensity of the saltiness at first, but I found the salmiakki to be quite addictive after a few tries. Overall, if you like licorice, these are a surprisingly tangy treat.
I will use Scandinavian Goods again. Very easy and convenient way order goods that are not available in your expat location
Though they have a good salmiak flavor, they are also sensitive to moisture and their packaging has no protective element. When you get them, seal them into an air tight box with a desiccant. They have a rougher overall texture than the pastilles that some may find less pleasant.
