Today I got my long awaited care package from Sweden. Mom was so sweet and sent me a bunch of my favorite stuff from Sweden.
A lot bigger and a lot heavier than I had anticipated.
Box filled with goodies!
I had asked especially for Swedish knäckebröd. I know you guys have Wasa hard bread here, but Leksand is my absolute favorite. Especially together with…
Cream Cheese of different varieties. My favorite is the shrimp flavored one at the bottom (Räkost). There’s also Blue Cheese (Ädelost), Crawfish flavored cheese (Kräftost), Blue cheese with figs (Ädelost Fikon) and at the very top Kaviar, which isn’t a cheese at all, but still rocks on hardbread. I swear the first thing I did when I had opened this package was make a sammich with knäcke, räkost and ham. SO DELICIOUS!
We also got a bunch of sweets. Gingerbread cookies for Christmas.
Candy, including Christmas candy and salty licorice candies.
Eight (!) bars of my favorite chocolate. Which I guess is technically Finnish, but whatever.
And tiny wrapped gifts for each of us so we “Don’t forget Sweden”.
Mine was a tiny plush moose that can hang out on our refrigerator.
Hubby got a moose bottle opener, which is good, because we didn’t have one!
Thank you Mom for the awesome care package!
