IKEA's Food

Hosted by

IKEA, you know it for its DIY furniture, massive stores and reputation as a relationship killer.
But how about the meatballs? IKEA’s in-store restaurants and markets are a weird mix of Scandinavian products and regular American junk food. Along with hot dogs, pizza and soft-serve you’ll find fish paste, muesli and, yes, Swedish meatballs. It turns out this strange menu is a huge piece of IKEA’s business.
