    Having a quick google, I wonder if they're actually "Swedish meatballs" by Sodergarden. Lidl do a lot of their ranges, under the heading of "Scandinavian food", but not specifically Ikea meatballs.

    They do say Kottbullar, but I bet that's just Swedish for "meatballs"... of any sort.

    Oooooh yay! I have a freezer full of Ikea ones stored up, will have to compare them,
    Hope they have got the gravy too though, its gorgeous when you make it with cream.

    it is pastures new

    taken from wiki

    n Sweden köttbullar (meatballs) are made with ground beef or a mix of ground beef, pork and sometimes veal, mixed with breadcrumbs soaked in milk and finely chopped (fried) onions, some broth, and occasionally cream. They are seasoned with white pepper or allspice and salt.[1] Swedish meatballs are traditionally served with gravy, boiled potatoes, lingonberry jam, and sometimes fresh pickled cucumber.[2] Traditionally, Swedish meatballs are small, measuring one half inch in diameter. [3] In the United States, there are a number of variations, based on the assimilation of Swedes in the Midwest.

    Sorry to sound thick but i've never heard of these Meatballs before, what's so special about them? Surely not as good as homemade?


    Get yourself to ikea now and have some :)

    I got some last week for £2 at the lidl at Heywood, they tasted just like the ikea ones, will have to go back for some more as it was a biggish bag and the kids love them.

    19.0g of fat per 100g. The make of the meatballs is sodergarden aand they are 1kg bags. You can either fry them or microwave them.

    The Ikea bags just say "Produced in Sweden for IKEA foods" no maker or hint of a maker.
    Now, if I can find the gravy locally Ill be very very happy (and probably very very fat!!)
