Sleek designs, an eco-friendly company culture, and low prices—how could Ikea get any better? One word: candy.

The sweetish—ahem, Swedish—furniture and home goods company is opening in-store candy shops in select U.S. cities starting now. The cavalcade of confections is made up of 45 varieties of treats including chocolates, gummies, licorice, sour sweets, marshmallows, and more. The candies are imported from Europe and made with no trans fat, no high-fructose corn syrup, no GMOs, and natural colors.

The Ikea candy shop was inspired by the Scandinavian tradition of "Lördagsgodis," or "Saturday candy," which is a decades-old custom in which well-behaved children were allowed to visit the local store every week to collect a bag of candy. You'll be able to grab your own Lördagsgodis any day of the week for $7.99 per pound.
