for grandma helen.

What she's called me ever since I was a very little girl:

Pronounced "sooker" [rhyme: booker] "tup" [rhyme: cup].

Swedish Wikipedia

Sockertöpp: "A sugar-loaf pressed into a large cone. Sugarloaf Mountain can be cut or trimmed with a sugar-tong to
get the appropriate pieces [for] coffee. Sugar Tops were stored sometimes in sugar chests. Sugarloaf
disappeared from the grocery market [when] the mass produced bitsockret came, but can sometimes be
available in stores with an old-fashioned touch."
