You may only be coming for a lamp and a nightstand but you can’t leave without those sweet, meaty balls of joy! And if so, here is 6 reasons why you should give into temptation.
1. Often imitated, never replicated
You can procure the internet all you want, and even though there are a few copycat recipes, this unique one is hard to find. These meatballs can be compared are like mom’s spaghetti – you’ve tasted others, but they just don’t feel the same. Ikea holds this recipe down real tight, so if you do manage to find the exact recipe please let me know. Until then, I will be waiting in line.
2. You can take them home
If you’re in a rush or if you couldn’t get enough, don’t worry, Ikea has your back with frozen bags. You may not be able to make them in bulk to your desire, but the authenticity can be preserved and packaged, ensuring that you can bring these delectable concoctions to the comfort of your home.
3. The sauce!
The sweet lingonberry sauce…with bread there’s butter, and with peanut butter there’s jam. So if you managed to put two and two together, then you understand that can’t have this dish without its inseparable sauce. The lingonberry sauce provides a sweet complement to the tanginess of the meat.
4. The hangry cure
We’ve all been there. Maybe it’s the frustration of watching your wife look at the same kitchen decor over and over again. Maybe it’s kids begging for a toy that’s just waiting to get thrown in with the rest that they’re already bored with. The process of shopping can be strenuous and overwhelming. You can sit in comfort and relief once you enter the cafeteria, letting your sorrows wash away with each bite of those luscious balls of meat.
5. You get what you pay for
You’re not just buying mounded up balls of meat. You’re paying for a taste of culture. These world renowned meatballs stay true to the country of Sweden. Whether you go to Ikea in Australia, Brazil, or Japan, you will find the same consistent taste that Ikea always makes them with.
6. Heaven in your mouth
Savory, saucy and peppery with an almost bouncy texture, Swedish meatballs are incredibly delicious. These meatballs are the real jewels of the IKEA crown, and no shopping trip is complete without eating them.
