Does anyone know of a grocery store selling finnish food items?

I am here to stay, it might be a while before I get to go to Finland again and sometimes I miss the familiar products like licorise and ryebread. So if you see these around please tell me for I've been looking but haven't found anything yet!

Vielen Danke!

Have you looked at the Swedish food in IKEA food shops, is it similar?

You can get the licorice (including salmiak!) at Bärenland in Niederdorf in Zurich. (That place's gummies are AMAZING, by the way.)

There's a Finland shop in Baden (on Untere Halde). I've never been in, so I don't know what it sells and I can't find it with google. But someone else here may know more about it than me!

When you have been away a long time you start to make compromises or you make it yourself, and these days I even eat Swiss bacon!
