What do the Scandinavians miss from home? (apart from the weather...)

Remo_350ml_2We are often asked by our local London customers what our best selling Scandinavian products are. Well, we did a bit of looking in people's shopping baskets over the past week or so and here are the result:

  • Danish food:  Remoulade (a curried mayo based piccalli dressing, goes with beef, fish or chips), Koldskaal (buttermilk soup) and Stryhns liverpate (a coarse porc pate, great on rye bread)
  • Swedish food:  Kalles kaviar (creamed cod roe, you put it on egg sandwiches), filmjolk (soured milk, eaten every morning) and ahlgren's bilar (marshmallow sweets)
  • Norwegian food: Staburet Makerell (mackerel in tomato sauce), leverpastej (liverpate) and bamsemums (chocolate covered marshmallow bears)
  • Finnish food:  Reissumies (special Fazer rye bread rolls with an obscene amount of fibre in them) and any salmiakki liqourice, the stronger the better.

hello ,

can you help me by telling about some suppliers of Kalles Kaviar in USA or any supplier which can ship orders to USA.

Hoping to get help from you



Norwegian food: leverpastej!?
No, thanks. Although the Swedish leverpastej is good, we prefer our own LEVERPOSTEI :)
But we also miss our brunost and our Mills Kaviar... and Seigmenn...

But, one thing missing here... I'm sure all Scandinavians agree that our bread is something we miss. English bread is absolutely horrible! Full of additives to keep it "fresh" for as long as possible. Yuck!

I like the Danish liverpate best, actually. It beats both the Swedish and Norwegian ones.
