Surströmming -- Seen it here?

Was talking about this with a Norwegian in work today (ok i know it's Swedish). And I want to try it. I've had a sort of Danish version but not the real thing.

I guess we might be a little out of season for it and shipping is not easy since it's banned on most airlines .. But have you seen it anywhere?

For those who don't know, watch the video (includes swearing - NSFW)

I get mine in Sweden (or have someone bring it).

And the season is NOW!

But it's best when a few years past it's date.

OH's boss (of all people) sent him the link to that video, and man, it is hilarious! I was so grateful that smell-o-tv never made it.

John, you do like to live dangerously

I have a cast iron stomach

Many years ago I had a Danish house mate and he used get some stinky fish stuff mailed over and I ate that, usually when drunk on absinth.. But going by these videos, this stuff is another level, or they are just soft people

Maybe i make a video of me eating it!

Re: Surströmming -- Seen it here?

Video somehow reminded me of Blazing Saddles - but with macho guys standing around a tin, chundering, instead of a campfire, farting.

Had a short time in Sweden - I remember sucking thawed out crayfish, but never came across stinkfinger fish in tins.

Re: Surströmming -- Seen it here?

With surströmming, forget about the cast iron stomach, you need a strong nose foremost!

Good luck in your (stinky) venture!

Available for buying?

You can add it to your cart, and then checkout - probably need to set up an account (maybe not).

Whether or not, when you get to checking out, it then says it doesn't ship to CH, you'll only find out by doing.

If you view the page in Chrome browser, it will offer a translation.
