When asked about the revelation, Sweden's leading culinary expert replied "Nurr de currmerrt, de bish ke bosh mer de ritt der gitt bork bork bork."

Also nobody's business but the Turks: Why Constantinople got the works.

Yes. Also cabbage rolls, cinnamon buns and potatoes. Only thing truly swedish is freezing to death (and having a proper scale for measuring the temperature while doing so)

Sweden has rotten fish Surströmming and those nicotine shocking underlip cancer rolls. Also spoiled yogurt for breakfast.

Surströmming is not bad. Smell is terrible but taste is ok. Overall not worth the bother.

Also, don't eat it like people on youtube does.

They told me the same thing about durians

Durians are really good actually. Just smell awful. Theres a trick to defeating this. Try serving it frozen

Yeah - the Malaysians taught me that trick. Of course they wanted to watch the gringo try to gag a few pieces down at warm temps first before they showed it to me.

Same thing with the Hawaiians and how to properly eat poi.

"Others were less happy. Serdar Çam, president of the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency, complained that Ikea, which sells 2m meatballs a day in its in-store restaurants, should not be selling the dish as though it were Swedish."

Perfectly fair given the culinary warcrime that is Turkish Delight! Nasty gelatinised 1960's douche water! Sverige! You take those meatballs!

I remember being terribly disillusioned. Edmund betrayed his family and a bunch of talking animals to a witch for this shit?

They hadn't invented Kola Kubes yet, so he was just making the best of it.
