May / June 2016 Try The World Sweden Box Review Wrap-Up

May/ June 2016 Try The World Sweden Box Review - Box Contents

Chef Bengtsson curated a variety of Sweden gourmet ingredients that brought us a taste of Swedish cuisine in the May /June Try The World Sweden Box. We put together our own fika with a few of the Sweden Try The World box ingredients. Traditionally, fika is when Swedes take some time to enjoy some pastries and coffee, whether with friends or in the office. The Löfberg coffee is a strong coffee with a nutty flavor that will certainly give that afternoon coffee boost. The cookies, fudge, and licorice were perfect pairings with the coffee. The cookies have double crisps and a generous coating of chocolate between the two cookies. The Nordic fudge is made with 100% organic ingredients and is flavored with rosehip powdered to make a rich, premium fudge with a unique berry flavor.

After a day out in the sun, a glass of ice water mixed with Elderflower Syrup was an easy drink to make. The syrup adds a light, floral sweetness that can be used to flavor sparkling or flat waters. You can also mix up some great summer drinks with the Elderflower saft. We really enjoyed the savory flatbread crisps. You can top them with the lingonberry jam, crumble them into breading, or eat them plain, like we did.
