Sugar and Coffee in Sweden(Fika)

Sugar is sweet and coffee is dark because it has been roasted. What is this thing of "Fika" in Sweden where one has to eat a sugary substances with coffee. Is it really necessary to eat all that sugar with coffee? Every time I fika, I feel really bad afterwards because of to much sugar and coffee in my body. Maybe you share my opinion and may be not. I think the Swedish people should start looking to replace their famous fika with something that is healthy and good. Eating sugar and dark coffee. What is the pleasure? I propose a good sandwich and a drink or juice. What everybody does is not always right. Who even started this trend?

Sweet in winter and bitter in summer

I was missing the long dark nights and cold winter. Now is has come again. What a great feeling of the long nights and cold weather outside. Anyway that will not stop me from from eating meatballs with cooked potatoes. I just have to sit indoors and watch the snow fall and say to myself "wow those meatballs are really good." That is why i say Sweden is sweet in winter and bitter in summer. To know the bitter aspect of summer you just have to use your tongue.
