Many moons ago, our Bronte used to hang out at the innocent ‘Fruit Tower’ quite a lot. For around five years, her quest in life was to ensure the people of UK and Europe got their daily fruit. One day, she woke up and decided her new quest had more to do with herring and open sandwiches and she set up Scandi Kitchen together with The Swede, also known as Jonas. But she never forgot the friendly bunch in West London.
We just had a bit of a peek this week and wanted to tell all you Scandophiles that you can now get innocent in both Denmark, Norway, Sweden and even Finland. Bronte is very proud.
Just so you know, Strawberries and Bananas is called Mansikka & banaani in Finnish. Don’t say we don’t teach you anything…

Easter time in Norway is the time of year for reading crime novels. Yes, really. Nobody is really sure why this is the case, but every year at Easter, the book stores are filled with all the latest “whodunnits” and people flock to the store to get hold of the newest books. Our Norwegian friends then pack their rucksacks with books, Kvikk Lunsj and a few oranges and head to the hills for a long, relaxing Easter weekend.
Even the sides of milk cartons has little “crime novels” printed on them – thanks to Elisabeth for sending this us us. The policeman did it, by the way.
We were famous last week: a whole three times. Wowsa, it felt good and it almost went to our head and we’ve spent days blowing our own trumpets.
