What are Swedish Fish?
Swedish Fish are small, chewy candy pieces that are gluten-free and, in some cases (keep scrolling for the details), suitable for vegans. They come in a range of delicious flavours including Piña colada, Tropical Island, Beachy Punch and Passion Fruit.
Can you buy Swedish Fish in the UK?
Yes you can. Some UK supermarkets sell Swedish Fish on their website (Asda is one example), but generally it’s quicker and easier to order Swedish Fish through Amazon UK. You get way more choice in terms of flavours and packet sizes.
Are Swedish Fish vegan?
According to Veg Knowledge, most packets of Swedish Fish are vegan. The website explains: ‘Swedish Fish that come in a peg bag adds Palm Oil and Beeswax to the ingredients compared to regular packaging. Beeswax is typically considered an animal-derived product and is not vegan.
‘However, all of the ingredients in the regular packaged Swedish Fish are vegan-friendly. Therefore Swedish Fish are usually vegan, but check the packaging to make sure Beeswax is not included.’
Where to buy Swedish Fish
If you’re lucky, then you’ll spot some Swedish Fish at your local supermarket in the ‘international’ or ‘US candy’ section. But in our opinion, it’s far easier to grab some packs of Swedish Fish online.

Swedish Fish – 87g Box (£2.95)
Let’s get you started with something simple – the original Swedish Fish. This 87g box is up for grabs for relatively cheap at the moment, so jump on this deal sooner rather than later if you’re craving a taste of the US.
At the time we’re writing up this article, the Amazon seller is chucking free delivery into the mix. You might want to order a couple of boxes to save yourself from making repeat orders. This mini box is just about the right size for a movie night at home.
Swedish Fish Mini – 861g packet (£11.99)
There’s something different about this Swedish Fish packet. The name is a dead giveaway – the pieces inside this 861g bag are a little bit smaller than your regular Swedish Fish. That makes them great for snacking on and, as the bag is resealable, you can have a quick munch and then chuck them back in the kitchen cupboard.
Swedish Fish Mini have the same great taste as regular Swedish Fish. You’re paying for a bigger pack of smaller pieces, not smaller pieces with a different flavour.
