So, a few days ago, after just watching Midsommer, one particular scene caught my attention, very late in the movie, one person gives Dani a fish that she has to eat but she seems so disgusted by it that she rejects eating it.... so, then I remember I had a swedish teacher and quickly ask her about it, and she told me and very kindly gave to me as a present a can of surströmming, that's the thing she's eating, herring, which can only be described as a rare exquisiteness of swedish gastronomy. When you open the can, under the water, for safety, haha, is so disgusting, it felt like the dead was coming for me, it was like dead fish, dead rat, the worst smell you can imagine, once I found the corpse of a horse in the woods, and that was decent, it was so strong I could smell it outside of her house 😭 but at the same time I was so curious beforehand and I couldn't say no, in the end she was giving us something of her traditions, and I give it a try, for that you need a few more ingredients, a crunchy bread, butter, onion and chips, and.... I like it , it wasn't bad, very tasty and strong but not bad, it wasn't related with their smell anymore, so, all that Dani needed was a bit of fucking bread and butter but those swedish were so high as hell that didn't even bother but fortunately by the end, she comes to terms with a lot of things, her smile says it all
I don't know if it's unpopular exactly though you never see it on any restaurant dessert menu but Boston Creme Pie is just the best - first of all it's not a pie, it's a cake - no crust! I kind of love that - it isn't even what it claims to be.......
Second of all, the only place you can really get it is at diners ......because they don't care how bad for you it is and they'll give you as much coffee as you want to go with it, God Bless 'Em.
