  • - I've never eaten at IKEA before,

  • but I've heard the food is fine.

  • - I've heard a lot about the meatballs.

  • I think they're gonna be great.

  • - The whole premise is really disturbing to me.

  • That a place you can buy organizational doors for silverware

  • and couches, you can also buy meatballs and cauliflower.

  • - The value here is unbelievable.

  • To me that's the number one most important thing about food

  • is cost versus case analysis.

  • Everyone's talking about how cauliflower is the new potato.

  • - This is what Oliver had in his bowl when

  • he had to ask for more and I told him no at the orphanage.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Yeah!

  • - I dig it. It's like comfort food.

  • - Yeah! I'm into it.

  • - Gruel, that's the word I was looking for. It's gruel.

  • - It's not not gruel is what I would say.

  • - I think I would love to like wake up every morning

  • with just a spoon of this in my mouth to wake me up.

  • So the meatballs are like the flagship IKEA vegetable.

  • - What is this? Is this barbecue?

  • - It's lingonberry sauce.

  • - Are lingonberries just cranberries?

  • - It's good, but I mean.

  • - If I was really hungry and this was in front of me,

  • I would eat it.

  • - But I mean it's a good meatball.

  • - They're cheap. 5 bucks for the whole thing.

  • - For $5 it's probably a great deal.

  • I'll say that. It's a great deal.

  • - I am glad that they have veggie meatballs.

  • - It smells a little bit like stuffing.

  • IKEA has figured out how to make Thanksgiving

  • into every dish they make.

  • - Bottoms up!

  • - Ding!

  • - They're pretty good.

  • - You know what makes it?

  • Is this butternut squash sauce around it.

  • - Is this the same stuff?

  • - I like, I like them. They're not bad.

  • - Veggie meatballs. They're good.

  • - The green beans, on the other hand, not a big fan.

  • - Yeah, why is there so much water in the beans?

  • (laughs)

  • - This is really beautiful.

  • - If there's one thing that

  • Scandinavians like it's their sweets.

  • - That's good. That's some good lingonberry.

  • - Yeah! I think it is lingonberry too.

  • - Highly manufactured, but delicious.

  • - You know I can eat several pieces of this.

  • - I mean we can finish the thing.

  • - I kind of want to finish this.

  • - Looks kind of like a cranberry.

  • - Yeah, but it's lingering on the vine.

  • - It tastes like Caprisun.

  • - You can't ever be angry drinking out of a juice box.

  • - It's good.

  • - Katie likes it.

  • - It's good. It's like cranberry juice

  • but like a little more subtle.

  • - This would make a great beverage. Like adult beverage.

  • - I can drink this all day every day.

  • - It's also organic, so.

  • - What? Shut the front door.

  • - Value is off the charts.

  • - The cake and the juice box like yes.

  • Everything else (shrugs).

  • - And the lingonberries, now a fan.

  • I now love lingonberries.

  • - This is the kind of food that you buy like at Disneyworld

  • in a pre-packaged container because you're in a rush

  • and like everybody is already cranky.

  • Like no one's happy.

  • But it's there, and it's food.

  • So everybody's gonna shut up and they're gonna eat it.

  • They're gonna be fine with it, and they're gonna move on.
