Dream of Christmas celebrates Scandinavian Christmas traditions through high quality Swedish cookies and confectionary products in tins with illustrations from the famous Christmas illustrator Jenny Nyström. These Ginger Thins (Pepparkaka in Swedish) are baked using a traditional Swedish recipe. The cookies have a unique taste and are flavored with cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Ginger Thins started to appear in Swedish cook books in the 18th century and are especially popular in Sweden around the holiday season.

It is told that a former King in Sweden was prescribed Ginger Thins by his doctor to cure his bad mood. This has led to a myth that is still being told to children in Sweden to this very day. Eat a few more Ginger Thins, it will make you become kinder!

Jenny Nyström - Kalmar County Museum has a permanent exhibition dedicated to Kalmar-born artist Jenny Nyström (1854–1946), who was admitted to the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm in 1873. In 1881, her competition painting won her the Royal Gold Medal and a substantial grant, which enabled her to travel to Paris and hone her artistic skills. She returned to Stockholm in 1886 and married Daniel Stoopendaal the next year. They had a son, Curt. In 1911, she signed a contract with the publishing house Eliassons Förlag. She worked as an illustrator right up until her death. By purchasing this products, you are supporting the Jenny Nyström exhibition at Kalmar County Museum.
