    A friend told me yesterday, not sure how much they are, but it's got to save you money as meatballs was the only thing i'd by from Ikea, the misses on the other hand would want to buy everything LoL.

    Any chance of a price? It's only a grabbit really if they are authentic Ikea ones AND cheaper.

    is it better to have these with the gravy and lingonberry?

    or will they be just as good with spaghetti and a tomato sauce?

    Going tonight to get some, so will post price, and yes they are the same.

    And even if they are more expensive than Ikea, but if you deduct the price of petrol to get to each depending where you live then it's a huge saving. My nearest Lidl is 1 mile away, my nearest Ikea is 50 miles away. - But it could be the opposite for someone else

    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?

    oh i hope they do sell them my nearest ikea is 90 miles away, everytime we go we stock up on gravy and meatballs, im sure sometimes we go just for the meatballs.

    I dont have time to handmae meatballs and these are the best meatballs i have ever tasted.

    Yes you can put them with spag bol - you dont have to have them qith the gravy.

    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.

    http://www.lidl.co.uk/cps/rde/xchg/lidl_uk/hs.xsl/index_8418.htm

    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.

    I am a massive fan of ikea meatballs, and have been there before purely to get them!

    i'm interested to see how this one pans out- there aint another meatball like it in the world and i always have at least 1 bag in my freezer :-)

    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.
