I recently returned from a vacation abroad in Norway! The scenery was picturesque in every city and all the seafood was so fresh. Traditionally Norway is not known for gourmet food, however the basic flavors were a refreshing change from the norm.
One of my favorite sweet treats from the trip was “soft ice” that was sold in most ice cream shops and a few tourist areas. The soft serve ice cream could be eaten plain or dipped in one of three flavors: sweetened coco powder, rainbow sprinkles, or strawberry flavoring. I had my first cone rolled in coco powder and I was hooked. I had more of these cones throughout the 8 days in Norway than I care to admit!
Another favorite treat was a simple cake we discovered in a diner- it was a lemon cake with frosting that had the density of pound cake and the light flavor of angel food cake. But was so tasty I had to get a second piece for later. See below for all of the tasty treats of Norway! Enjoy!
