Zara Larsson Tries Ikea Food | Food Fight | Women’s Health


KEX! Cookies. Some weird people say
“CHEX” – uh, that’s not how you say it. It’s a weird accent in Swedish, and don’t
trust these people, let’s say that – because it’s “KEX”. You can see the K. Hi! I’m Zara Larsson, and today I’m gonna
be trying out some things, explain to you guys what it is. If you like IKEA, you
might recognize some of these things – and IKEA, just like me, is Swedish! So, this
is almost like a little tutorial. The cinnamon buns — very Swedish. We have a
Cinnamon Bun Day; maybe you guys have that in America as well. Let’s have a try — Tastes like a good cinnamon bun.
Mm – okay, okay! Moving on – to… Skumtopp! I didn’t know that these were like a Swedish thing; I thought everybody has these. They
look like this inside, like a marshmallow thing. This was like, what you had in
school when everybody was bringing snacks and you had like a snack day, or everybody
was baking, this was like… what I brought. Because my mom don’t bake.
And it’s like, cheap. So. The next thing that I didn’t know what Swedish that
I thought everybody had is Daim. No one eats that? That’s not, like a really big thing?
What? They deserve to be. This is with an orange flavor, limited edition,
apparently – I haven’t tried these ones myself, so I’m quite excited. It’s chocolate-covered toffee with a tiny bit of nut in it. I like the orange! That was nice!
Yeah! Sill — also from IKEA. It’s so Swedish.
They have these little pickled herring in whatever sauce – this is a mustard sauce. If you want to eat this the real
Swedish way, you should have it with small potato – summer potatoes – spring
onion, maybe some dill, and also sour cream. It’s the way to eat it. This is for Easter, this is for
Midsummer, for everything. And I saw something exciting here too — These ones! Knäckebröd!
Knäckebröd is like bread, but it’s hard. So “knäck” would be like “crack” in
Swedish. I say – so when something cracks, like: Yeah. It was really nice. It was
really nice with this bread! Last night, I had some Italian meatballs. And the big
difference is, the Swedish ones were… Yummier? Sorry Italians; I’m just being
honest. But we can’t forget – the lingon! Lingon – it’s a berry, and it lives in the Swedish forest! …and probably all around the world. And I
don’t even like this that much; I personally would never buy like, a
drink – but I do like it a lot on meatballs. And also, if you have pickled
cucumber with it, it’s really nice. And creamy mashed potatoes and brown sauce.
That’s how you do it if you’re a real Swede! Very good. What else do we have? Make room for my pie! Mmm!
Rabarber! Rhubarbs. Really nice. I used to have rhubarbs
in my – um, what is it called, yard? Garden? In my garden. But we have
those really big snails that just ate everything. Mmhmm! I wish it was a tiny bit more sour – oh my gosh I’m like a judge on The
Great British Bake Off. I wish it was a bit more sour. Ooh! Kafferep! Kafferep – it’s almost like Fika,
when you go to this place which is like a Starbucks, but preferably more cozy, and
then you sit and you talk —— with someone, and you drink coffee. There’s a special
word for it, and it’s called Fika. It’s very important in Swedish culture.
So, Kafferep – it’s almost like that, it might be lunch break, middle of the
day, and you want something sweet to it. Gooey chocolate cake: a Swedish classic.
Thin and gooey to please any chocolate lover.
They really sold it to me. Ooh, it’s definitely gooey, look at this! I like that. I think this is like an alphabet thing! Ooh!
What should we spell? I see it! IKEA’s a great place, but it doesn’t really make, like,
everything the way it should be. Like a homemade pie will always be better, for
example – but if you just crave something Swedish and you want it now? I would say
if you like Swedish meatballs, these are really good. So I would probably pick the
meatballs, or, actually – the pickled herring. Thank you for watching!

    anti male feminist idiot. look it up, she had to tone it down because the whole anti-male shit doesnt go over as well in the US as it does in Sweden. and nobody's ever heard of her. come on. get real. she's unheard of

    Kex or ”tjex” is both right ways of saying the word. And it is not a wierd accent or so cause you will hear both ways of saying it all over sweden and it’s about 50/50 what people say.

    Swedish grammar tells us that K before soft vowels like E I Y Ä Ö is pronounced like our ”tj”-sound. Kex would in that case be ”tjex”

    But there are some exeptions… loanwords or words that just have been ”swedishified” or what you should say?! (Words that just has change a litte litte tiny bit from another language and have the same meaning)
    And some people says that Kex is a word that comes from english ”cake, cookie and crackers” and therefore it shall be pronounced with a K

    Keks in German comes from the English words "cakes," so I'm assuming Kex does too. So it would make more sense to pronounce it with a K.

    when she said that word "Really Nice" my first thought that came into my mind was Pewdiepie 😂 legit the way she pronounced it as well sounds a bit like him too. I want her to say "Very nice" too, that would be hilarious. love dem Swede Sister. 😆💕

    (FYI I’m from Denmark) Most of the things you tried, danes say are danish. Like for an example the cinnamon bun, and the chocolate marshmallow thing (flødebolle) I would say are danish, but Swedes say are swedish
