Though plenty of our friends suffer from severe Francophilia, we're endlessly obsessed with the Swedes. For whatever reason, the Scandinavian nation just appears so stylish, so perfectly designed to our rough American eyes. They've got fashion down pat and furniture made simple, so it's no surprise that Stockholm is home to what has to be the most stylish candy shop in the world: Pärlans.
Pärlans not only uses a recipe from the 1930's and 1940's to make their handmade and handwrapped sweets, it also extends the aesthetics of those decades into everything they do. "We all came from swing dancing, the people who work here and the girl who started it," explains a perfectly-coiffed Candy Maker in a short video.
