Theaters get my popcorn money, but a go-bag from Sockerbit beats movie-house candy concessions anytime. Case in point: rabarberpinnar ($3.25 per quarter-pound), "rhubarb sticks" of flavored licorice with a firm, extra-lemony filling. The colors and flavors at this Swedish shop are nearly equalled in number by the variety of sizes, shapes, and textures; customize your own candy assortment, and you'll still know which is which after the lights go down.
