Wikipedia: Anna’s Swedish Thins or (in Swedish) Annas Pepparkakor is a brand of Swedish ginger thins, produced by the Swedish company AB Annas Pepparkakor in Tyresö outside Stockholm.

The ginger thins are available in supermarkets all over Sweden, exported to other countries in Europe, and produced in Canada for the North American market.

The company was founded by the sisters Anna and Emma Karlsson in 1929 and is owned by a family Mattsson since 1963. The company was appointed Purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden (kunglig hovleverantör) in 2002.

In North America the company, Anna’s of North America, Calgary Ltd, has a bakery in High River, 50 kilometers south of Calgary, Canada, and operates under the brand name Anna’s Swedish Thins. The production has been extended to various flavours beside the traditional Swedish ginger flavour, including orange and blueberry.

I bought this small box of cookies while shopping in IKEA Mutiara Damansara last weekend at RM3.60. It is sold in front of the counters along with many other Swedish food products (IKEA is a Swedish company). The cookies taste like “Kai Zai Peng” 鸡?饼, just thinner lol. Orange flavored Pepparkakor is slightly more expensive, at RM3.90 per box. I bought that too but is given to Siang Leng’s family. :) IKEA is worth a visit if you happen to in Selangor. Moreover, 1-Utama, The Curve, IKANO, Tesco and the new 7 floor Cineleisure Damansara are all nearby, so you can spend a full day easily here.
