Read labels carefully before you order a scoop in Stockholm. Lakrits can look like dark chocolate or even chocolate-chip ice cream, but contains local favorite salmiakki, or salty licorice. At Stockholm ice cream shop Glasshus, the lakrits is actually coal black in color (check your teeth and lips after a cone). In supermarkets, meanwhile, look for the Lakrits Puck—kind of like an Eskimo Pie hockey puck with a licorice coating.

How It Tastes: Even licorice lovers can find this stuff strong-tasting. Salmiakki contains ammonium chloride, a pungent-smelling form of salt.
