Toronto IKEA stores now sell bulk candy

A trip to IKEA isn't complete without a $1 breakfast and a slice of lingonberry pie. But now there's even more than a cheap meal to look forward to when you decide to schlep out to one of Toronto's IKEA locations. That's because the Swedish furniture store now sells "pick-and-mix" bulk candy.

This candy shop concept comes from the Scandinavian Lรถrdagsgodis, or Saturday candy, tradition wherein children were allowed to get a bag of treats from their local store, notes a company news release.

Both Toronto locations currently offer 48 types of imported confections including chocolate, gummies, sours, marshmallows and liquorice. It'll cost you $1.99 per 100 grams.

Will you pick up candy on your next trip to IKEA? Let us know in the comments.
