Lidl now sell Ikea meatballs :)

  • My local Lidl had them a couple of weeks ago listed as being the weekly special, along with other scandinavian goods. I haven't checked since but assumed that the weekly specials weren't stocked permanently. Which is a shame as the meatballs are nice, if you can't get Ikea's.

    Exactly - yes, they're "Swedish meatballs", but these are not - repeat, NOT - the same ones as you get in Ikea.

    Lazy work on MSE's part - especially when one of Martin's mantras is to know your facts!

    very true, i got some yesterday, they are not identical, but the ones Ikea sell have Ikea on the packaging, so they are not going to be exactly the same, but they taste just as nice.

    You can put your pitch forks away now :eek:

    Anybody tell me if these contain Gluten?

    (DD has Coeliac's).

    The IKEA ones have gluten, but Tesco does a packet in the fresh meat products aisle which are GF and taste very much the same.

    "ikea style" meatballs with chips or mash have become our "go to" meal when we want something really easy. SOOOO tasty.
    We go to croydon ikea fairly often and always buy a bag of the frozen meatballs, jar of the lingonberry and some sauce sachets. FYI, we find the sauce tastes pretty much the same made with milk instead of cream (although you do have to add a little less milk). We also get the swedish kitchen meatballs from sainsburys and find them exactly the same - they are often on bogof.

    And by the way you most definitely DO get these kind of meatballs in sweden!! I have eaten them at restaurants and cafes and at someones house... and they are always eating meatballs in the "millenium" books by Steig Larssen, set in Sweden!

    Other favourites from Ikea are their fruit ciders - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic are great. They used to sell Kopparberg (which you can also get more expensively in sainsburys); now they have Ikea branding and are just as good, particularly the pear.
    Oh now I'm dribbling on the keyboard...
  • OMG I'm off to Lidl tonight, thanks for this!!!!!!
