"I've seen an ad where they wanted 5,000 kronor ($740) for a box of butter."
Apparently, butter is the new big thing to smuggle too.:rolleyes:

Quote:

Butter consumption has steadily increased in the Scandinavian country this year, partly because of the nation's increased popularity of low-carb but fat-rich diets. Growth in demand peaked at more than 30 percent last month, compared with November 2010.
This is actually kind of funny. :D

Makes me wonder if their import fees are too darned high.

My wife has some online friends in that neck of the woods, yes, they are hurting for butter. I think we may be mailing some.

Sounds like they actually have a cow shortage. ( Wonder how much a Holstein and a butter churner would sell for over there?)
