A brand of crab sticks in Norway…

The name of some biscuits in Sweden…


Bread rolls from Finland…


Snus tobacco in Sweden…


The word actually means ‘big bag’ in Finnish…


Toilet rolls from Sweden (okay, so it was the eighties, but still…)


We stock this.  It’s called Spunk and it doesn’t mean anything in Danish. Salty or fruity sweeties.


Tins of ham product from Norway….


Aptly named starch…



Skum means ‘mallow’ in Scandi lingo…


Oh, it’s just chewing gum


Imagine buying food for your little cat….


Or how about a few bars of Plopp chocolate? It’s actually really nice.




Cold buttermilk soup (Koldskål): a Danish sunshine obsession?

March 12, 2012 | 1 Comment

As soon as the sun comes out, a strange thing happens to the Danes: they start to miss Buttermilk Soup.

We know this because 1) the sun is out and 2) Bronte has a craving for buttermilk soup – as has all the other Danes at Scandi kitchen.

Buttermilk soup is a dessert – you whisk egg yolk with vanilla and sugar and adder the sour buttermilk to the mixture (buttermilk being the leftover “milk” when you make butter from cream). Nowadays, we don’t often make butter at home – and butter milk has a super short shelf life anyway, so most of us buy it ready made in a carton and just add those sweet, delicious “kammerjunker” biscuits.

Some of us like to add chopped strawberries too, for the flavour of real summer.

However you have yours, just so you know, the guys at the warehouse predicted our cravings as well as this lovely nice weather we’re having – and we now have stock of this delightful summer soup.
