The Shnozberries Taste Like Shnozberries





The grocery section of Ikea. It's the section after you checkout and is only part that keeps Jim from putting real nasty voodoo spells on me. It makes us forget the shopping that preceded it.
The food shop is what I imagine the Stockholm airport to be like, after you get through the long lines and security checks, you get clean, clear colors and to the point graphics. You get fishy tubes of salmon and jars of citron herring. You get elderflower drinks and jams flavored like the flavors of love or cloudberries at least. I have no idea what a cloudberry is but I bought some anyway because please people, they're CLOUDBERRIES for christ's sake. Oh and the Anna's cookies...thin crispy gingery deliciousness--perfect for the holiday drop in when served with elderhjortonappledrÿk.
Thanks to Nadia for driving the point home that we should really stop and linger, even if it is mean old Ikea. Ünd we did.

I love that you posted about this! There have been so many times that I've found myself in that grocery section just fascinated at the food selection. So strange and yet I somehow find myself wanting all of it. Then I get overwhelmed by the choices and opt, instead, for a fro yo at the snack stand.

we went to Disney World and at Epcot there was a gift shop that looked just like Ikea. I actually like a few of the cookies, and of course, cloudberries must taste like cloudberries. Mr. Wonka wouldn't have it any other way

if it weren't that this is ikea, I would say that the grocery section is my favorite section of the store. But this is Ikea, every section is my favorite.
