Ikea Swedish meatballs

Well as an African who lived several years in the beautiful archipelago of Stockholm, I can well believe the Swedes thought African cuisine was heaven! Their food is sooooo bland. Do they have allergies to ALL spices? Maybe ancient trade routes from Asia/Yemen and spice sources did not reached that far north (until last 1-2 centuries). So maybe strongly habit/culture-driven.. but it persists!

Their reindeer meat is quite delicious and healthy. But each to his own. I remember other Europeans mercilessly joking about the painfully bland Swedish diet.. and World Cup German futbol fans teasing about IKEA and that they should stick to furniture-making, lol. What will we be saying soon about “360°” Annalena and other German geniuses?
