    i just had some light rye toast with lingonberry preserves for breakfast and it was soooooo good. why don't more americans like lingonberry preserves?

    i'm finding out that most people i talk to have never even heard of them and those who have only know of them through the nihilists' breakfast orders in the big lebowski.

    they're big all over scandinavia. i always think it's funny how swedes hate finns and fins hate weeges and weeges hate every other scandinavian country.

    i made a mistake...i haven't tried those swedish preserves yet. i need to find a picture of my favorite type. i finished that jar a week or two ago and just started on the felix preserves last week. felix are ok, but not tart enough. i can't wait to try the swedish ones.

    I think they aren't something well-known here because they aren't shoved into everything else. You don't see lingonberry Pop Tarts or doughnuts. Honestly, I wouldn't even know much about lingonberries at all if I hadn't tried the products in IKEA, like the juice, but I would certainly recommend them.

    it's a real shame that we only eat fruit if it's in a donut here in america. nation of unhealthy obesers. then again, that's what prosperity brings so i guess it's good we're so obese.
