Great Big Story was one of our favorite YouTube Channels and we were very sad to see it go a few months back! They still have a great archive of unique content that we can’t help but share from time to time. For example, this deep dive into Sweden’s culinary obsession with food inside tubes. Take it away, Great Big Story.
Food in a tube is popular in Sweden. You can get caviar in a tube, spreadable bacon-flavored cheese in a tube, tomato puree in a tube and so much more. But why? Why are there so many food tubes in Sweden? We went to Karla Marie Paredes for the answer. This food tube expert wrote her master’s thesis on the Swedish obsession with this unique means of food delivery.
