IKEA’s Famous Meatballs Are Going Vegetarian

By Adrian | April 9 2015 | 7 Comments

Not content with being known just for their innovative flat-pack furniture, IKEA have decided that it’s time to start making better and healthier food too.  

The furniture superstore’s food offerings have long been pretty popular, and taking the chance to grab some fuel to keep you focused on getting the things that you actually need as you make your way through the gargantuan structure instead of buying all the stuff that catches your eye is a good idea. Then again, we do need new towels…


Anyway, back on track. IKEA have decided that it’s high time they catered for the vegetarians amongst us and have launched the new vegetarian-friendly meatballs, which they’re calling GRÖNSAKSBULLAR, in select European markets and the UK today.

The rest of the world will have to wait for another few weeks to get their hands on them, but it seems that overall, IKEA are going to be changing their food offerings and by September they promise to have a healthier, more homely feel to the menu and the restaurants for their visitors.

They look pretty appetising, but would you like to try this new spin on a classic from IKEA?

    Meat is not unhealthy.
    I bet these meatballs are tasty, though.

    I usually order their vegetarian options when I’m there so I’ll definitely try these. If anyone is wondering about the name, “grönsaker” is Swedish for vegetables and “bullar” means buns (not balls like in the English translation) – so vegetable buns :)

    That image of those meatballs is making my mouth water. Mmmmm

    Oooh, I see that yesterday’s food post, the one about the subscription service, has been deleted. I wonder why? (Is this comment next?)

      Hi Other Mary. We got in touch with Fighter Food directly earlier today and their Webmaster is looking into why some people who commented on our story received emails. We NEVER, EVER give out email addresses to anyone and we’re taking the issue seriously. So, we’ve taken the article offline for now just to be absolutely certain.

        One of those comments was from me – I actually went looking for the post myself again today to see if anyone had replied. I really have no idea how they got my email address, because it’s not the sort of thing I’d sign up to… Glad to hear you’re looking into it.

        I thought it was because the company did not like the negative comments. It was actually worse :/ Good job on shutting it down :)
