My friend April from New York was visiting Denmark last week, so I finally had the chance to introduce her to pickled herring, rundstykker and other Danish food. We also had smørrebrød together with cold Danish beer and snaps. At first, April thought you were supposed to drink the snaps in one go, and I think we waited a little too long to tell her, that it was ok to drink it slowly, ha ha.
One evening, we drove over to Middelfart and had ice cream, and I made sure that April tried two typical Danish flavors: Salty licorice and Chocolate Turtle ice cream. The two variants actually did not exist when I was a kid, but during the last 10 years or so, they have grown to become real Danish classics. We top the ice cream with Guf, which is a gooey mass of whipped egg whites mixed with sugar. When I have ice cream abroad, I always miss the guf, and I cannot help wonder why you do not find it anywhere else than in Denmark?
PS: I have just installed TikTok, and I am having a lot of fun making videos with Bølle and Bella accompanied by rap music. My parents’ neighbors’ kids are also on TikTok, and to be honest, I don’t think you will find many people in Denmark above the age of 12 who use the app, but it is really a lot of fun!
