The Daughter had brought me a package of these Ballerina cookies (they call them biscuits over there) from her trip to Sweden, and I had been doing the "save them for nice" "thing". I finally decided "nice" had come! The Daughter came over and joined me for coffee and cookies. Google translates the company's description this way:
Since 1963, Ballerina merry Swedes with its unique smooth and creamy nougat and its characteristic appearance. Ballerina is Sweden's most beloved biscuit and Göteborgs Kex's largest brand. Every tenth packet of biscuits sold in Sweden is a Ballerina package and every second eats an average of six people a Oreos.Ya gotta love it. My mind is picturing 6 merry Swedes being eaten by Oreos. No, really, I do understand what it means, I think, but it's still funny.
The cookies are very good, not too sweet.
The cup is one of the few I've come across that have snowmen on them without being Christmas-y.
