    In typical Ikea fashion, the furniture chain shared the recipe on Twitter as one of their classic instructional diagrams.

    “We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we’ve released an at-home alternative," said Lorena Lourido, Ikea’s country food manager in the UK and Ireland, in a press release.

    “Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone’s lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable. Bon appétit, or smaklig måltid, as we say in Sweden!”

    [ikea date] him: let’s go check out the beds ;) me: *mouthful of meatballs* they sell furniture here?

    Dear Friends, when I say “let’s meet up for coffee!” please know in my soul I wish I was saying “I don’t even drink coffee, let’s go wander around IKEA for a few hours and buy a succulent and some Swedish meatballs” because that is my idea of a fun time.

    But, like, for good reason.

    Not being dramatic but the ikea meatballs are the best thing I’ve ever tasted omg
