  • And for those last few, you can thank Sweden.

  • Thanks a lot.

  • Carla is fascinated by Sweden's food in tubes, so much so that she actually wrote her master's thesis on it.

  • E wrote 65 pages.

  • Oh yeah, so some of these products you can use on a sandwich these are caviar and this credible cheese and pat days.

  • You have another category, which is more for dressings and condiments, mayonnaise or like hamburger dressing.

  • And then you also have pure race, like tomato puree, which you can use for cooking.

  • But for the most popular way to eat food from a tube, you need your bread cracker or, as the Swede scholar connected bread, Perfect.

  • Now you need a topping.

  • What about the king of food tubes.

  • Callous caviar.

  • It's made from salted or smoked cod roe.

  • Or what about a cheese in a tube?

  • Bacon, cheese, shrimp and crayfish cheese Bleu cheese with pair?

  • It's very clean.

  • It's easy to dose the product.

  • There is some like contraptions that you can use thio, like folded somehow so that you put it here and then you just roll it and try to squeeze everything out of it.
