‘Julefil’ is a strong Christmas tradition from Swedish dairies. And now the seasonal product from Norrmejerier and Falköping Dairy is ready.
Norrmejerier’s Christmas ‘fil’ (creamy fermented milk) come every year with a temporary taste. This year, the classic taste of ‘pepperkaker’ (Gingerbread), returns – together with a new flavour of Christmas Apple & Cinnamon.
– Last year, Gingerbread returned after a few years of absence, and it was an appreciated comeback. Therefore, we let Gingerbread return again this year, Johannes Eriksson, Product Manager at Norrmejerier says in a press release.
At Falköping Dairy, they stick to the classic gingerbread taste and at their Facebook page, the dairy writes about the gingerbread tradition in Sweden:
‘Gingerbread recipes were found in Swedish cookbooks back in the 18th century. During the 19th century, gingerbread was associated with Christmas. Gingerbread was appreciated in the Nordic countries, not least by royalty. Union King Hans is said to have been prescribed gingerbread for his bad mood by his doctor. According to myth it is said that Gingerbread makes you kind’.
