Here are two videos showing what it is to be typically Swedish with a touch of humour.
On the first video, there are two things I can relate to. The first one is when my ex boyfriend (100% Swedish) introduced me to “Kalles Kaviar”,a creamed smoked cod roe paste that you can find in almost any home here in Sweden. I basically had the same reaction as Stephen on the video when I tasted it. It´s a special taste!
The second thing is when he was putting Ketchup on the pasta I had prepared with all my heart grrrhhh!! Well, I know now, it is just Swedish…. But I must say that in France or for sure in Italy, it would be considered as a food crime 😉
The second video is a delightful parody of the Swedish culture. There are also some traits that I could absolutely recognize. It´s 3 minutes of joy. Watch it !
