Strange Snacks of the World–Prawn/Cheese Tube


I found this industrial-sized toothpaste tube of cheese and prawn spread at Ikea. It’s made by Milko, apparently one of Sweden’s largest dairy companies. The spread contains cheese and prawns (tiny, pink bits of which are visible in the spread), along with shellfish stock, fish and prawn powders and butter. It actually tastes pretty good–like the best Cheez Wiz ever, plus shrimpiness and butter. You could make a very strange cheese steak with it. Or just squeeze it into your mouth–but don’t use it to brush your teeth.
