They wanted to see the Scandinavian boys visiting America for once and get a taste of American culture, Peanut Butter being of special interest. We do have Peanut Butter up here in the North now like most American stuff, but for the sake of the comic lets say this was the first time they encountered it. :D

I have no idea how many people will get the last part, but it's a joke on the old American show "Mister Ed" from the 60's about a horse that could talk. When asked how they got the horse to move it's lips when "talking" the people behind the show claimed it was done by putting peanut butter on it's gums (they later told they had trained it to do so, but didn't want to disappoint the children who watched the show).

I honestly have no idea why I know about that show in the first place. :XD:

I thought the last panel was a reference to the swedish chef from sesame street.
Legend goes some americans wanted a swedish chef from Dalarna (a "state" in Sweden) to do a cookery show. When he was there and cooking he got nervous and started whispering the recipe to himself in swedish, the americans heard this and due to his broad accent they heard "hoodie doodie loodie boodie" and eventually it became a muppet.

My father told me that peanut butter in Europe wasn't as ours in North America, it was more natural and less "sticking on the palate"

it is done to dogs too. when visiting american homes, we tend to go by the saying "my home is your home", make yourself comfortable.

Norwegians are already familiar with food sticking to the roof of our mouth : )
Namely brunost (brown cheese), in my dialect it is often called "Ganklæbb" which translates into something like "sticks to the palate"

When I spent a year in Germany this was my friend Lilly's reaction to having a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup XD I also introduced my friends to Dr. Pepper which didn't go over very well XD
