Swedes have quite the sweet tooth. On average, they eat 35 pounds of candy each year (dailymeal.com). That’s roughly 1,418 more chocolate kisses consumed by Swedes a year than Americans.

“Lördagsgodis,” a Swedish word meaning “Saturday candy” is the Swede’s effort to control their nation’s intake of sweets. The thinking is that in order to curb daily candy consumption, they indulge in candy on Saturday. (dailymeal.com). They are disciplined through the week, because they know that Saturday is a sugar fest. Imagine, an entire day dedicated to eating candy!
