You might find this odd but the Swedes eat different kind of fruit purées, (i.e. strawberry) together with milk as a snack or a light lunch during summer time. I think you call it “Fool”.
I definitely found it odd when I had it for the first time in 1966 – I considered it to be a dessert!

The best ice-cream ever!
Planning to visit our oldest son with family this weekend and I decided to make an ice-cream bomb, with flavors that I know they like.
