AURAN SINAPPI - AURA MUSTARD - Auran sinappi is the most common and best finnish mustard. It used to be called as 'Turun sinappi' - 'Turku mustard'. The name was sold to the swedes. They thought that they would do big business selling the finnish favourite mustard. But they bought only the name, not recipe. Finns soon realized that Turun sinappi tastes like swedish shit. Nowadays over a half of the mustard sold in finland is Auran sinappia (partitiivi). River Aura flows through Turku.
SALMIAKKI = SALMIAC; SALTY LIQUORICE is a kind of candy. It's very popular in Finland because it tastes so good. It's called salmiakki because salmiac is used in it. Of course, there are those who don't like salmiakki. Some salmiakkis are very strong.
LIHAPEUNASOSELAATIKKO = MASHED MEAT POTATO BOX is very nutricious but not very tasty. Keep an eye for it. It comes when you're the most unprepaired. Get it before it gets you!
