March Newsletter

Welcome to another edition of our monthly newsletter.

Easter is getting closer and as many shops around town are starting to sell Easter Decorations - so are we - our Easter Shop is open!. For us Scandinavians Easter is not just about chocolate - it is also about Herring, Snaps and Påskmustas well

We have just received a shipment from Denmark with Curry Herring, Spiced Herring and my favorite - Sour Creme and Chives. Unfortunately quite a few jar were broken during shipment so be in quick! We also have a few jars with dented lids on 'freight damaged' sale.

In this newsletter we have:

Waffle day

On the 25th of March every year, Swedes dust off their waffle irons to indulge in newly baked waffles with jam and lightly whipped cream. The tradition actually stems from the original Christian celebration on that day Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary in Swedish "Vårfrudagen", became in the vernacular "Våffeldagen" which means Waffle Day.

Enjoy with sour creme, lumpfish caviar and chopped red onion as a lunch. Enjoy with whisked cream and cloudberry jam as a desert or brunch. Or try it with some Norwegian Goat Cheese - Gjetost!


Easter is getting closer!


For kids Easter means they will receive their Easter eggs. In Scandinavia this normally is a colorful, egg shaped box, filled with their favourite candy and in some cases smaller gifts.

For adults Easter means celebrating with family and friend. A buffet-style smorgasbord or påskbuffé (paskbuffe) is often served in the Scandinavian countries, which contains the traditional dishes like herring, salmon, meatballs, boiled potatoes and filled eggs. And don't forget the Easter Soda and Aquavit :-)

Our Easter Shop is now open and has everything you need to celebrate Easter.

Don't miss our special on the Jul(Påsk)must, 1.5L, buy 2 or more for $6.00 each!

Or try our very special Juniper berries soda the taste is very similar to Påskmust.

This month’s featured product:

Sifted Rye Flour

Sifted Rye flour is a whole grain rye flour where the whole kernel is used. Sifted Rye flour is traditionally used in the Scandinavian countries to make sourdoug bread. It is also the main ingredient of most crispbread. Rye has less baking properties than wheat flour and is therefore often used in conjunction with wheat flour in baking. Sifted Rye flour is rye flour where the shell and the germ have been sieved out. It is made up of 40% rye flour and wheat flour rest which you can use for baking bread at no extra involvement of flour.

Was $11.00 This Month Special $9.00
