Sweden's Wall of Food

The offices are mad beautiful..the view is stunning..and their food options in the cafe/kitchen commons is well as...interesting...and...well, I'll let you be the judge.  First the view...

Next the 'shelf 'o fruit'...baskets of fresh bananas, pears, oranges, peaches and apples.

Next let's move to the wall of food...imagine your local convenience store..  You swipe your EA card, open the door, and with a price gun, choose what you will eat and take it to the opposing wall of microwaves and Nuke it.

Some examples of what is housed as the wall of food include:

I'm pretty sure "Gooh" is GOOD or Yummilicious in Swedish.  This American girl is thinking Goop is more appropriate.  Yikers.

And finally, some of my favorite packaging of the trip.

I am having several crates of this shipped over on the QE II, if you care to try any.  Isn't it interesting that 'makes you feel fuller longer' is in English?  Note the Goop pkg is not bilingual.  Is there a message here?  Hunger not quite under control...  no worries.  The next shelf has pizza!

And for dessert, who can resist Billy's PannKakor...strawberries and crepes!  Yummers.  Looks like a hot dog logo to me though.  Sorry, but not a pastry font.

Sweden was awesome.

  1. So sorry to hear you all are sick. I hope you recover soon and don't suffer the stigma of "plague carriers" after you leave.
