If you’ve been to IKEA then you’ve probably seen their assortment of Swedish food they keep near the cash registers (which I always thought was weird, that they store it in front of the cash registers, so you see it after you’ve already purchased your Billy bookcase. So if you happen across a craving for some Lingonsylt after you have checked out, you have to get back in line–this is dumb). But what is not dumb is their amazing packaging of food products:

Here’s some creamed smoked roe with a little boy smiling as if to say, “I love roe from a tube, don’t you?” To which we reply, “ugh, I…uh, well, um…”

Food from a tube is so convient


Is that Christie Brinkley?



We rarely leave Ikea without buying Marabou. It’s my favorite.

  1. Did you go to IKEA and take these pictures? If so, amazing. I wish your brother liked that store.

  2. Yeah, I took the photos with my new and fancy iPhone. I don’t know what my brother has against Ikea. It’s silly because Ikea is the BEST.

  3. Every time we’re there I’m tempted to buy some nordic fish paste in a tube, but I fear mixing up that and my toothpaste for a fishy night-time tooth brush. That would be the worst!
