Norsk købmand... Norwegian Grocery Stores

Når du besøge andet land, er det meget sjov at gå til købmand og ser alle forskellige ting som de sælger!

When you visit a foreign country, it is really fun to go to the grocery store to see all the different things that they sell!

Da vi var i Norge, besøgte jeg en norsk købmand for at se hvad ting de havde som vi ikke havde i Danmark... Jeg var jaloux af få ting jeg fandt....men ikke så jaloux af andre!

When we were in Norway, we visited a Norwegian grocery store and saw what they have that we do not have in Denmark.... I was jealous of a few things...but no so jealous of others!


JALOUX af "old El Paso" produkter....
Jealous of "old El Paso" products....
men ikke så jaloux af rensdyr suppe...
but not so jealous of reindeer stew....
Jaloux af "condensed suppe" (siden jeg laver min egen i Danmark!)
Jealous of "condensed soups" (since I have to make my own in Denmark!)

men ikke så jaloux af HVAL hos slagtermand!
but not so jealous of WHALE at the meat market!


Vi rejser til Skotland i oktober så jeg er spændt at se hvad skotske har i deres købmand!
We are going to Scotland in October, so I am excited to see what the Scots have in their grocery stores!

When you go to Scotland, you'll have to look out for haggis, and square sausage, and tablet.

*missing Scotland now I typed that!*

The Scots have whiskey - YUM - and haggis - UGH.

I might be able to get behind reindeer stew... but WHALE?? That just ain't right, you know what I'm sayin'?

yea I remember when I was in Helsinki market they sell all kind of meat including reindeer and bear

June said...

Ewww whale meat!
Glad to find another supermarket tourist. I love checking out grocery in new countries!

Yummy shortbread, Kelli. Delicious delicious. Though if you can get to a baker's, they will sell it in a traditional round slab and it's even better. Also oat cakes: salt oat crackers for eating wiht cheese or on their own.

LadyFi said...

Ew to reindeer stew and whale!

Watch out for haggis in the Scottish supermarkets!

Do you have any super best over there? Our local super best has an "American/British" section. It's a little pricey...actually very pricey, but nice if you are craving a certain something. (all kinds of candy, betty crocker cake mixes & frosting, canned pumpkin, chocolate chips, JIFF peanut butter, dr pepper, cherry coke, root beer, grape soda etc)

Also when you go to Germany I have found condensed soup there. (both times when we have driven down through Jylland and also when we have taken the boat) Not the cambells label but they have condensed soups from a different label. Can't remember what it is off the top of my head. Also if you ever go to Sweden they have some American products. At the citygross they have JIFF peanut butter that isn't too badly priced but tastes a little different. I have also found "ranch dressing" packets. I haven't tried them yet. And Malmo now has a Fridays.

Whale? Ay!

Amy said...

Ahhh, so many good memories from your visit here!! I love going to grocery stores also, take lots of pictures in Scotland, dying to see what they have!! :-)

Stephanie said...

Next time you are in Malmo you will have to pick up some condensed soups. They have them here in Copenhagen too!

May said...

We had El Paso in Switzerland as well. :)

LJensen said...

Well, I eat alligator, and I think reindeer is just venison, but that whale meat does not look tasty at all.....looks like tongue...

'Babs' said...

You are so well traveled! I love when you share what you find. Your blog is truly an education Kelli.

Ug to whale meat..that would take some getting used to.

Tara said...

I hear in Scotland they have canned pumpkin!

Kel D said...

Try the Irn Bru in Scotland. It's a bit sugary but I love it.

Garkbit said...

I used to find grocery shopping in Norway pretty depressing. The "fresh" produce was very poor and the only meat we could afford was mince. The frozen chickens were these strange little cube-shaped lumps that we couldn't even bring ourselves to buy. The immigrant shops (including the halal butchers) helped a bit. The one thing I miss are the sachets of sauerkraut!

travelingmama said...

Wow, condensed soup and Old El Paso would be nice to have,but barf! Whale meat and Reindeer stew? That would freak me out! I don't know which is worse- eating Rudolf or Free Willy!

Caution Flag said...

I think you were brave just to pick up that whale meat for the picture. Wow.

Hapi said...

hello... hapi blogging... have a nice day! just visiting here....

Garkbit said...

The reindeer meat tastes ok - pretty much like beef and not particularly gamey.

I'm racking my brain to think of other traditional Scottish foodstuffs apart from haggis, Irn Bru and tablet, but the only one I can come up with right now is kippers.

This is so funny. Reminds me of the time I went to Belgium and got my hip replaced. A week after surgery I was hobbling to the closest grocery store on crutches over cobblestone, roaming the aisles and marveling at the sheer number of jars of chocolate paste. Mmmm. Strange that such a pedestrian place, a grocery store, can be so fun.
