IKEA, a recent visit to their marketplace

It's been some time since I've stopped by an IKEA. The last few CH threads focused on the IKEA Swedish market were less than favorable and some downright disappointing. But since I was there to pick up a few kitchen essentials at outstandingly low prices, I popped into their marketplace at checkout to see what's happening there.

I left with $72.00 worth of food stuffs! Let's see, a few tins of thin gingerbread cookies, several bags of black licorice (sweet & salty), frozen crepes, frozen cardamom bread dough, a few bags of Swedish meatballs, a few jars of apple jelly, apple cake, vanilla sauce, salmon lasagna, frozen cinnamon roll dough, 3 pieces of salmon filets, a few bars of chocolate, chocolate-almond candies and a couple of bottles of Lingonberry or Elderflower concentrate. I also popped over to their cafe and enjoy a mushroom/cheese crepe for lunch.

I had a ball!

Anyone been to an IKEA lately?
