Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh yes, but of course it is not called swedish fish here. It is either Pastellfiskar or Salta fiskar (which taste salmiak). And the salmiak one is far more common and popular then the sweet ones. Though apparently there are taste differences. Wikipedia to the rescue

In Sweden the candy is marketed under the name Pastellfiskar, literally "pastel fishes" (in the meaning "pale in color"). Indeed, the fishes in Sweden are much paler in color with the yellow being nearly translucent and cream colored. The exception is the black fish which lacks any translucency. The taste also differs slightly with the Swedish version being somewhat less sweet but more fruit-flavored, especially the yellow one which is more tangy. The green fish, on the other hand, is not lime flavored (the green candy color in Scandinavia is in general associated with apple or pear flavor rather than lime). In texture, they are slightly thicker, have the text "Malaco" instead of "Swedish" embossed, and stick less to the teeth.[original research?]

Mmmm, salmiak. Sweet taste of ammonium chloride.
