Swedish Meatballs Are Not Really from Sweden


One Swede claims his "whole life has been a lie". lol

From the NY Times:

Swedish Meatballs Are Turkish? ‘My Whole Life Has Been a Lie’

LONDON — Sweden, land of Ikea and social welfare, has something to tell the world — news that could shock the palate.

Swedish meatballs, the signature national dish, are really Turkish.

The country’s national Twitter account made the announcement in a tweet this week.

True.

The ones sold at IKEA in Turkey do not contain pork. wink

The ancient Romans had meatballs.
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

French fries aren't French either.
and surely there's a whole lot of similarly mislabeled stuff.

True.

They are "freedom fries".

lol

I think fries are actually Belgian. They (and the Dutch) make the best fries, in my opinion.

Swedish chocolate? Are you sure you're not confusing Sweden with Switzerland?

As for Swedish cuisine I think they definitely have a recognisable cuisine, as part of Scandinavian culture. Pickled herring, gravlax (cured salmon), crispbreads, and I'm sure you've heard of the word smorgasbord, a Scandinavian buffet.

Their Marabou chocolate is delicious.

I've just realised that Daim chocolate is Swedish and I had no idea. In the UK it was sold as Dime so I just assumed that it was American in origin.


I'd see it in the Ikea as Daim but I just thought that they had changed the name for the local market, I didn't realise it was us that had had the name changed.



So I stand corrected, Sweden does indeed have some well known chocolates. And they love their coffee too, good combination!

Some snacks and chocolate have slightly different names and designs from country to country.

And sometimes certain flavors are only available in certain countries ( for instance the myriad of KitKat in Japan compared to the classic red KitKat or white chocolate KitKat in Europe).

Twix for instance, used to be Raider in Germany and then they changed the name to Twix about twenty years ago.

And some chocolate bars have a different filling.

I didn´t know that Daim is called Dime in the UK .

The Three Musketeers chocolate bar in the USA is different from the one I used to eat as a kid.

There's a recipe from my 1960s childhood that uses grape jelly in the sauce. Not as bad as it sounds.

  1. Combine grape jelly, chili sauce, and cayenne pepper in a saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until warm, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Place meatballs in a slow cooker and top with grape jelly mixture.
  3. Cook on Low for 3 to 4 hours.
