Fun Finnish Foods, a pictorial.
Apologies to anybody who was having issues with using the comments system these past few days — there was a glitch involving a naughty plug-in that I just got around to figuring out last night. Everything should work just fine now.
Yeah, I take pictures of random food-related things when the mood strikes me. These are pretty obviously for the peeps back in the States, since I’m sure this stuff looks pretty unremarkable to anybody on this side of the Atlantic.
Cat-shaped caked for the sis-in-law’s birthday last year.
A bottle of Aboa white wine, limited release for the 2011 Capital of Culture event.
Plate of fried baltic herring and root veg at the annual Baltic Herring Festival.
Because when you think “bacon”, you think “America”. Yeeeeep.
I have a thing for kids’ cereals.
The packaging is so multilingual!
No comment on bunnies nor balls shall be made.
Makes me wonder what new cereals are around in the States now.
Truffled liver paté. Big fan.
I made a gelatin dessert from leftover white glöggi (spiced wine) that turned out pretty good!
My favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor currently is one that’s only available over here – Nordic Water Peace.
It’s suppose to raise awareness of the Baltic Sea’s health. Via chocolate. I’m not complaining.
Hoping a Finn can help me out with identifying this.
I forgot what was inside here, but it was odd-tasting.
Finally, the neighbors had a big cookout during midsummer last year. They take grilling seriously here.
