Smash! My (New) Favourite Norwegian Junk Food.


I promised myself that on this trip to Norway, I would try as many authentic Norwegian foods as possible. New favourites would be found. I would spare no expense and no tastebuds in this venture. No animal nor vegetable would be safe, and I would be a more knowledgeable man for it in the end: a better understanding of Norway and of its people though its many and varied gustatorial delights would surely ensue. Well, this is where it all begins, my friends.

Smash! is my new favourite junk food. They are basically Bugles covered in chocolate. But what, you might ask, does this crispy sweet chocolatey smash up tell me about Norway and the Norwegians? Well, I suspect the person who came up with this idea was himself smashed at the time, so clearly they are drunks. It’s also clear that at least one very tasty idea came of this. Hmmm. Perhaps I should have a look at the local beer next…

    I’m sure I’ve done a lot for the Norwegian economy over the years by buying Smash!. Ludicrously expensive, but so fantastic that I have to buy it every time I visit.

    Um, if you send me some money, I know a guy in Norway that can get it for you… kidding.

    I have no idea where to get it here. I just got it when we were there. Family visit a couple times a year and bring it back with them, but that’s about it. I live for those times now…

    Our Norwegian exchange student brought us some Smash, we love it! Her parents sent us some more and it was gone way too quickly. Gotta bring it to the US, or make my own!

    Last time I went to Norway it was Easter, so my friend had an entire drawer in the kitchen full of candies.
    One of them was.. Smash! Me and my cousin ate it all, the entire package in about 30 minutes.
    When we came back, we had about 7 packages of Smash in our suitcases. and we ate a lot more whilst there *-*
    My aunt works there, and this month she brought me Mini Smash, so cute. That reminded me that I still had one package, I’m eating the as I type :D

    I was in Norway about 6 weeks ago and got my first taste, Mini Smash. Couple weeks later I was back for more…and to visit my husband. My husband just got back home to Scotland yesterday and brought me the normal sized version. Luckily he works in Norway, comes home every weekend, so I’ve got a regular supply. I now know I prefer the mini version, so he has been instructed, it’s really delicious & addictive.
