We bought some Swedish cheese, blood pudding, green pea soup, "The Temptation of Jansson", Swedish meatballs, Swedish bread, and some things that our guest was likely to like too. The strangest thing from a Japanese perspective is "blood pudding", which is a dish made from wheat flour and pig's blood. Most Swedes like it, and I had not had it in a long time. We also usually put lingonberry jam on the blood pudding. This is in itself a kind of strange jam, and putting jam on meat products (which is common with this jam in Sweden) is also weird to Japanese people.
