There is actually much debate as to the official flavour of the original Red Swedish Fish. Though many fans have proposed guesses ranging from cherry, raspberry, or fruit punch to the more exotic lingonberry, the truth is that the fruity flavour is unique and specific to the one and only Red Swedish Fish. The company has never confirmed or denied any flavour claims -- the only statement they have ever officially made on the debate is the very informative declaration, "tastes like fruit, not like fish."
Good call, Sweden.
Well, no matter what the official flavour of these yummy, chewy treats may be, one thing is certain: the marine-shaped munchies have been a North American fan favourite since the 1960s, and unlike their secretive flavour, it’s not hard to decipher the reason why!
