Swedish Supermarket

So my obsession with Sweden is at an all-time high, and has perhaps hit the weirdest peak: Swedish supermarkets. It’s something about the packaging and how foreign even a bag of potato chips seems, and when I stumbled across Robyn Lee’s amazing album of photographs from a Swedish ICA, I couldn’t help but share them.

Aren’t they incredible? The colors are so vivid and each photo is so crisp. I’m so jealous! Don’t think I’m a weirdo, but the first thing I’m doing if I ever make it to Stockholm is heading right for a supermarket, camera in hand.

An interesting tidbit: the Swedish eat the most bulk candy per capita out of any country in the world. This excites me to no end, and I feel like I would fit in immensely well over there. Sockerbit, the Swedish-inspired bulk-candy store in the West Village, is definitely on my itinerary for later in the week when I head up to New York (oh! I just realized that’s tomorrow! Yesssss). It isn’t perhaps as authentic as wandering around an ICA in Stockholm, but it will have to do for now.
