Svenska LantChips (Ikea chips) - the universal Good Chip


Following up to the potato chip post: the availability of any kind of packaged food around the world is iffy, with the exception of a handful of really global brands, and even they (e.g. Coke) change their formulas from place to place sometimes. But as Roanne’s comment reminded me, there is one kind of good potato chip that is available all around the world - Svenska Lantchips, aka Ikea chips. If you have an Ikea near you, next time you’re there pick up a bag of these - a trifle on the greasy side, but these are tasty, sturdy chips, the type I really like. When I was at Ikea Spreitenbach a few days ago they had plain salted and unsalted; previously I’ve seen sour cream flavored ones too. Don’t you just love Ikea?

I love the sour cream

I love the sour cream flavored ones ! I just ate a whole bag on my own yesterday (I know it’s bad but I couldn’t help it) ;-)

I don't believe it...

…I was at Ikea just yesterday. I rarely go, and if I’d seen this post I would have stocked up on delicious Swedish chips!
I will just have to console myself with Terra chips, and a kind I found at the grocer that mixes plain, blue, and sweet potato. I also like plain salted, but I do love vinegar chips on sandwiches from time to time.

Ikea sour cream

Ikea sour cream chips are not bad! A bit sour. I guess sour flavor goes well with chips, like vinegar, lemon, sour cream…

Ikea has some pretty good food…worth a try definitely!

Oh, I wish I hadn’t read

Oh, I wish I hadn’t read this blog post. You make me want to go to IKEA and buy a bag! Luckily I don’t live very far away from one. My fav flavour is the soured cream, it’s not a flavour you generally get in chips.

Here in Sweden there is an insane amount of sour-cream flavoured chips now.

with onion, with cheese, most likely with pepper fruit, with whatever else .. ;D

Check estrella and olw (both .se) and you'll see how it is.
