Finding Swedish Food
So now I just have to figure out what to eat with it.
Besides begging friends to mail me some rokt sik (smoked fish, yummy!), or driving to the nearest IKEA (which isn’t near at all. Apparently because I cursed IKEA in Prague I now find that I have to live without one), I decided to go online to see what I could find.
My oh my, there are some great delights there!
Next up, how about something sweet? We all know Swiss is famous for their chocolate. But Sweden has some great chocolate as well, such as the Marabou Swedish Milk Chocolate Coin Roll!
Yum yum yum, I remember having these in Sweden. And yep, those went into my shopping basket!
Daim, which has cola flavored caramel in the middle are also delicious and super Swedish!
Ok, while I am trying to watch my weight, maybe we should move away from the chocolate and godis!
How about some Limpa brod? Ok, it is made in Chicago, but it is an “old Swedish recipe”. Sold! It looks so yummy too! I have to steal the recipe and get my local bakery to make it 🙂
So, now, I have this dream to make my friends a real Swedish delight. Surstromming. With the Knackebrod, I’m half way there. But alas, I could not find surstromming online.
Fermented herring, no such luck (geez, I wonder why!)
But marinated herring? Oh yeah baby!
I actually didn’t eat this much in Sweden. But I know Swedes ate it. And I remember it in the stores and in my fridge. I kinda just want to get it to have a little reminder of Sweden 🙂
Another thing that I never ate (and probably never will), but I know that was at ever Swedish meal or fika… Kalle’s creamed smoked code roe spread. We just called it Kalles.
Seeing the English translation does not make it more appetizing to me. But to each their own, and some of you may have being daring enough to try this, and have fallen in love with it!
Now, of course I save the best for last. My favorites of all the favorites. The one piece of food I miss the most. And of course the most expensive! But well worth it…
All I can say is thank God for the Internets! All these amazing treats are just a mouse click away!
