Salmiakki fear by sakurapanda Salmiakki fear by sakurapanda
I got Salmiakki from the friend.

It was very... awsedrftgyhujiko orz
Is this really a candy? Not medicine?
I think this taste resembled "Seiro-gan" which was Japanese traditional medicine...

In my opinion those Super Salmiakki pastilles are more like "cough drops" than actual candies, so they do taste a bit weird. My favourite is definitely Halvan Salmiakki, which actually tastes like somewhere between liquorice and salmiakki.

I have to say: Salmiakki is the best candy I ever tasted. .3.

Is it that bad ? :/

it is not if you are used to it but if you don't then it will taste bit weird. normal candies are sweet but salmiakki is salty and bitter. if you still want to taste you can head here to buy:…

Salmiakki was made for being a medicine but it became candy and most Finns like it. (some don't)
You would like it too if you would get used to the taste XD
I had my first taste when I 3 years old-,- Hated it...Now LOVE IT!!!!>W<

I'm also from Finland but i don't like it all :s
Erika-Virus Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012  Hobbyist
And also I know why you don't like Salmiakki it's because of the fact that you have not been used to ammonium chloride. When I was little I forced Salmiakki's to my parents to eat^^' But now I love Salmiakki^^ And I just ate Salmiakki ice cream^^
Erika-Virus Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012  Hobbyist
Salmiakki is also used as a medicine as an expectorant^^ In Finland there are: Salmiakki candy, Salmiakki chocolate, ice cream, lollipop, medicine, Koskenkorva drink etc. ^^

It IS candy...No good? '^'
ThunderBeer Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I must say that Super Salmiakki isn't even the best choice to start.
It isn't that good, so I suggest you to try something else (for example Sisu Horna?).
If you're willing to try anything anymore. :'D

Salmiakki~ :heart:_:heart:
Miyull Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010
When I tasted salmiakki for the first time spat it out immediately -_-" ... but now I love it (salmiakki chocolate is yummy)! Maybe you have to just get used to the taste... or maybe we Finns are just freaks?
Onjag Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010
Salmiakki is the best :D .. of course outside Finland the world only know sweetvariety of that black candy ... sweet is ebvil .. salmiakki is good ! ( you should argue with a native like me :D )

Well, when you say medicine... yes it is a medicine, can be bought from a pharmacy, in the way of helping with sore throats ... eat too many and you get a stomache O_O'''

( Swedish chocolate and Finnish Salmiakki = double kill !! )
iEllenn Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist

karhu96 Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2010
I personally love all kinds of salmiakki (exept the chocolate whitch would cause a similiar reaction as in the comic). But do not eat more then 200g of salmiakki per week or you might get increased blood pressure and hedaches.
Riemi96 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2010
Salmiakki is GOOOOD!
