Get to know Kalasgodis a bit better.

Our story

The Swedish trading company Eric Ericson was founded in 1917. Sales of confectionery were at the beginning carried out nationwide via horse and carriage.

In 1964, the company began to import sweets from factories in Europe. Classic candy such as Crocodile Tears, Double Dip and Refreshers were launched in Sweden.

In 1987, however, it was time for a new family to take care of the company. The Hjärner spouses respond to an advertisement published in local press about business transfers and thus enter the candy industry. With new ideas the product Banana Skids is developed which becomes a success. Meanwhile, confectionery in travel tins and the liquorice lollipop Bloody Jasper continues to sell out fast.
