#1

The ammonia-laden liquorice of the northern countries.

  • It’s great. You have no grounds to call me disgusting and wrong.
  • I have not tried it, and my life is all the emptier for it.
  • It’s disgusting, what the fuck is wrong with you people.

if i’d known this was going to happen i wouldn’t have wasted my salmiakki anecdote on the advent calendar thread!


#3

I go with my Uncle’s Old Mantra ‘If it looks like dog sit, It is dog sht’


#4

Swedish ex used to eat so much of this in one sitting she’d get nosebleeds and stomach cramps. Then do it again next time.


#5

Literally the worst thing I have ever eaten.


#6

AND YOU DIDNT MARRY HER!!!


#7

Well at least she’s not deficient in ammonium salts.


#8

Literally why we broke up, so thanks for that.


#9

Suspect the RDA for ammonium chloride is really, really small.


#10

Pain relief for your throat


#11

I like how they don’t claim to be the most delicious throat remedy around, just the most delicious from that manufacturer.


#12

Can’t be fucked searching it out so why not repost?


#13

This stuff sounds bad. Ammonia? The fuck is wrong with your people @whiterussian?


#14

just for you, theo (apologies everyone else!):


#15

It’s ammonium chloride, which in your mouth will form ammonium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid. Which is obviously much, much better.


#16

Delicious ammonia, obviously.


#17

Perfectly healthy stuff. Look at all those tall Swedes and Finns and Dutch.


#18

They’d probably all be nine foot tall if they stopped gorging on this muck.


#19

This is a thing I have no interest in trying, ever.


#20

some dutch friends of ours insist that the dutch being so tall is due the amount of dairy they consume.
