Blogging should be about having fun, right?
So, I’ve decided to set myself a challenge. No, not one of those awful virtuous attempts to learn something new or do a good deed. No, this is a REAL challenge. Once a week, I’m going to #Flag up Sweden (Fus). I’m going to find something that I like about Sweden, or at least find something positive to say about someone, something, or well really anything remotely associated with this tree-ridden country. For those of you who know me, you know that this won’t be an easy task.
But this week, it’s actually a piece of cake. Well, not literally, though it does have something to do with food. It jumped straight out of the fridge at me. Yes, it’s food in a tube!! Well, not all food in a tube. Just a very special, peculiarly Swedish food called Kalles Caviar.
Rather like Marmite, you either Love IT or Hate It. Rather surprisingly, I Love It. It comes in a garishly blue shiny tube, with a platinum blonde-haired boy grinning at you with a full set of ridiculously white teeth. But, don’t be put off by the packaging! Appearances can be deceptive. For inside the tube there’s a delicious, creamed fish roe ‘paste’. Just like toothpaste, remove the lid and squeeeeeeeezzze – it’s that simple. Admittedly, this does on first sight look a little bit like the contents of a baby’s nappy. But, get over that hurdle then you’re home and dry!
Just get yourself a slab of hearty Lingon bread, some hard boiled egg and then squiqqle over Kalles to your heart’s delight.
