The article describes the use of sweets motif in recent Serbian literature using the example of an anthology of short stories Poslastičarske priče by David Albahar and Vladan Mijatović Živojinov (Belgrade 2012). The author of the article is primarily interested in the use of the subject which triggers reflections on culture, focused on the problems of civilization and the impact of relevant experience of cultural difference and otherness. Sweets — their flavour, appearance, way of production and distribution — in analyzed works are considered arepresentation, but also ametaphor for aparticular historical and cultural reality. The proximity effect, used in these stories — raising the awareness of the everyday, aprivate, intimate sphere of life, details, somatic dimension of memory, both individual and collective — can be used to make aredefinition of Turkish heritage in the reception and evaluation of its place in contemporary culture of the Balkans.
