Nordics like Fish


Many many Swedes and Norwegians have suggested that I made a comic about “surströmming”, which is mainly a Swedish dish, but can also be found in some parts of Norway. It smells so bad that it is mainly eaten outside in the summer, and many Swedes enjoys exposing Danes to it just to see their look of horror at the smell.

Hákarl is a special Icelandic dish made of rotten shark, that is more traditional than normal, though you can still find it in supermarkets. It is said to be the most disgusting food in the world.

Pickled herring can be found in all Nordic countries, and is particularly popular in Denmark. In fact, a Danish adult who doesn’t like pickled herring is seen as rather weird.

And non of this is of course supposed to be eaten like this. You are supposed to put it on bread. :XD:

And to the newcomers: “Skål” is the Nordic word for “cheers”.

There's nothing wrong with pickled herring. Fermented herring, on the other hand, smells like absolute garbage.

... Is it bad that I want to try all of these foods now that I have heard how bad they all are?

I wonder what Denmark would think of Haggis or Black Pudding (both of which are quite nice). Heh heh, or suggesting he try spotted dick, toad-in-the-hole, or faggots in gravy. (All of these are ok to eat, they just sound disgusting XD)

Eating rotten poisonous shark - when parachuting into a volcano isn't extreme enough for you.
