How to be Danish, lesson no. 237: Pålægschokolade (sandwich chocolate thins).
Monday-Friday: on dark rye bread.
Weekend: Yipeee, white bread.
If you’ve ever been to Denmark you may have wondered about the lack of chocolate spread. We don’t really do that. Instead, Danes butter their bread and add little super thin slices of chocolate on top.
We call it Pålægschokolade – or sandwich chocolate.
You can get it in dark and milk chocolate varieties.
Most Danes were sent to school with a slices of rye bread with toppings – and the sweet treat was always rye bread with a slice of Pålægschokolade.
