Ikea is so typical Swedish. The second you walk into Ikea, you feel like you are in Sweden when you are actually in Dallas (the closest Ikea to Tulsa). The decor is modern and light, it looks like every apartment or house that I went to in Sweden. Ikea has Swedish names for everything too. Swedes sure do love their Ikea! The first time I went there was with Hans. He was just so excited to show me everything (it was before I lived in Sweden), and now I can see why! When you go to Ikea you see a part of the Swedish culture.
Last week, we agreed to babysit some of our friends cute little doggies and they offered to pay us but we decided we would rather have some Swedish food from Ikea instead! Here is the food that they brought back for us!
Flädersaft is kind of like a healthier soft drink. They boil Elderberry flowers with sugar and then make it into a drink. The photo is of Flädersaft concentrate. So, to drink it you take a few tbsp of the concentrate and add water. It is an interesting taste, ya either love it or ya hate it. I think Hans drank the whole bottle last night. 🙂
Marabou chocolate is amazing. It’s the cheap Swedish chocolate, like the equivalent of Hershey’s but I think it could compete with Lindt. I think I should start distributing Marabou in the states and become dirty dirty rich dirty dirty beautiful.. (love Lady Gaga)
Daim. More Swedish candy, of course! These are similar to Heath bars but instead of toffee there is caramel in the middle. I prefer Marabou, but Hans loves these!
Kalles kaviar, in other words.. very cheap caviar in a toothpaste tube. Haha, this stuff is pretty gross. Hans loves to eat it on knäckebröd (crisp bread, like Wasa).
Happy Friday every one!!
