Swedish food cravings

Hej!  I am headed home to Skåne soon, can't wait, and thinking about what to stock up on while I'm there.  This photo was posted on a Swedish FB site of someone's stash.  The Swede received this lovely grouping of Swedish macaroni, chocolate, and oatmeal from a visitor.  She asked what other Swedes like to get from home -- here are some of the ideas that followed:

  • falukorv (big round sausage)
  • meatballs (really, can you bring meat into the States?)
  • sauces
  • Mannagryn, messmör och jäst (this is just weird - the first one is porridge, the second a gross brown cheese, and the third is yeast)
  • sour cream (from someone who lives on Sicily)
  • candy of all kinds (yeah, I'm with you on that one!)
  • Swedish cheese and salami
  • Johnny's mustard (yup, I do that) and Kalle's Kaviar (we have that at IKEA but still a good idea!)
  • Bregott (a blend of butter and margarine that Swedes eat on the sandwiches which is so good)
