Cook's Hideout: Goodies from Sweden & some Pics

June 07, 2009

Goodies from Sweden & some Pics

I can't believe that we are already in June; time's just flying by and I'm a little late catching up with it. As I said in my previous post, it took me a week to clean up my inbox and my kitchen. Finally I got to take the picture of the goodies I bought in Sweden. The only shopping I did in Sweden was in a grocery store and I know all my blogging buddies would appreciate it.

I bought a pack of vanilla beans (2 beans/ ~4USD), a small container of vanilla powder, 3 baking chocolates. I also bought 2 packs of whole-wheat bread with nuts. These bread are dense unlike the breads that we get here in US. They also have a very long shelf life, which was perfect for bringing back to US.

Swedish groceries are filled with dairy products like yogurt, milk, ice cream, creme fraiche etc. Veggies were similar to US supermarkets, but I thought they had better selection of salad greens. Here are some of the picture from a Swedish grocery store.

These Cabbage were HUGE, as big as a football.

  4. That must have been a fun time in Sweden. Very interesting. I enjoyed looking at the pictres. They do have lots of yogurt, tomatoes, salt. But the prices seem expensive!

  6. Awesome clicks...they hav so many varieties of tomatoes..Even we do get those huge cabbages here!


  7. Thanks Anu, I had people staring at me like I'm a crazy woman taking pics in a grocery store, but as u can see I didn't care.

    Kitchen Flavors: We did have a great time, visiting places, but my absolute favorite was the grocery store.

    Pooja: I guess we get most of these tomatoes in US too, its just that I've never seen them arranged all in one place like that.

    Thanks Red chillies. The prices of some of the basic items are a little pricey compared to US (1USD~7 swedish kronas).

    Thanks Cilantro.

    Thanks Priya. That was my first time seeing those huge cabbages and I kept thinking of how to chop it :-)
