Review: Fazerin Parhain
Fazerin parhain is an assortment of sweets wich has been around since 1935. The content has varied over the years, but here is a review of the current sweets found inside.
Lakta (introduced in 1926)
Lakta is a pretty basic little boiled sweet. Kind of milky in taste without any real personality. However, maybe that’s why it’s been around for so long? Maybe we need these salt-of-the-earth type sweets for other, funkier flavours to better stand out?
Be that as it may, but we here at the Kasper Stromman Design Blog sure wouldn’t miss it if it was gone tomorrow. Rating: 4/10
Orange (originally introduced as Appelsiini in 1910)
Orange is such a weirdo.The concept of orange as a flavour feels quite current, but then we learn this bad boy has been around for the last 100 years. Huh? Anyway, tastes kind of dry and unexiciting. Rating: 3/10.
Suometar (since 2007)
This is new one, even the graphics look kind of recent. Suometar has only been around for five years after it replaced Krapu in 2007, but guess what? It’s great! Chewy with a creamy inside and great aftertaste. A first-class sweet. Who would have thought? Rating: 8/10.
Rex (around since 1950)
This is one of those basic sweets again that we guess are needed in a bag. All filler, no killer. We do appreciate the crown graphics on the wrapper paired with the stern Swiss type, but what does it even taste like? Sugar? Rating: 5/10.
Tosca (introduced in 1936)
Ah, Tosca! The dark sugary flakiness that morphs into a chewy taste sensation. How could you ever argue with the Tosca? That’s right, you couldn’t. She’s a temptress, and that’s a great thing. Rating: 8/10.
Okay, now we’re moving into a whole new category of Fazerin Parhain sweets. You see, Kiss-kiss is one of the long ones, and thus automatically has the upper hand over the other ones since, well, size matters. Despite, let’s face it, we’re talking Kiss-kiss here. Down to the details like the kittens on the wrapper it’s one great sweet. Rating: 9/10.
Islanti aka “Jääkarhukarkki”, 1910
And there we have it folks: the king of Fazerin Parhain sweets. Inofficially known as the Polar Bear sweet, Islanti manages to encapsulate the sensation of chill and frost into it’s sugary insides. How’s that even possible? Magic, that’s how.
The wrapper is equally great, although we realize polar bears don’t really live on Iceland. Rating: 10/10.
