Ikea is introducing candy shops to its U.S. locations.

We all know about and love the Swedish meatballs at Ikea, and most of us have perused the Swedish Food Market section of the store. Now, the furniture giant is opening pick-and-mix candy shops in United States locations.

The candy concept is called Lördagsgodis, which means “Saturday candy.” According to a press release, shoppers can choose from 45 different sweet treats, like gummies, sours, marshmallows, chocolates, and licorice. All of the sweets are made from Swedish recipes and imported from Europe.

The candy stations will be located in the Swedish Food Markets. Some are open now, and most will open by the end of August.
