One of Matt’s most looked forward to kiosks is Scandinavia. He LOVES Swedish meatballs, so they are a must-have a couple times for him over the course of the festival.
Food item prices remained the same since its introduction in 2011, although some drinks went up slightly.
This year, four meatballs were received on the two times we ordered them on opening weekend, while last year only three were received. It may have had something to do with this years dish shape, as it was more conducive to holding extra gravy and lingonberries over the previous plate.
Once again, Matt thoroughly enjoyed the dish, as did I. The meatballs are tender, and the gravy is pretty tasty, too. Personally, the lingonberries are my favorite as I like their tartness.
Being a fan of Rice Pudding, I wanted to give it a try since I didn’t last year. The strawberries were big and plentiful.
The berries were lightly sweetened, and I was pleased they had a fresh flavor. Matt was more interested in the strawberries than the pudding as he’s a fan of them.
The rice pudding was thick and not too sweet. The sweetness from the strawberries brought lightness to the good sized dessert. It was definitely a great value.
Here’s a look at the 2011 portion. This year, you receive another meatball for the same price.
We tried the Taste of Scandinavia last year and were really surprised by how much we liked it. The herring was the item that made us nervous, but also was the reason we wanted to order it. We’d never had it, so imagine our surprise when we turned out finding it actually tasty!
The Scandinavia kiosk is once again a pleasing taste for us. I also encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try the Taste of Scandinavia! We got a couple of our friends to try it and they enjoyed it too.
