Whilst the other napoletani were tucking into their Sunday ragù, my boyfriend ate Rudolph!

When Christer Fuglesang, the Swedish astronaut, packed his bags for space he wanted to bring reindeer sausage, which is a traditional Swedish food. He wasn't allowed to, because the Americans protested way too loudly: You can't eat Rudolph! He ended up bringing an elk sausage instead, which was okay.
It's tasty meat, isn't it!

Where I'm from, eating deer is pretty common, and I'm sure reindeer would be too if only we had some nearby....if it's moving...But what I find interesting here is the packaging on the reindeer. It *is* awfully Christmasy-looking to me, which, you know, means you just can't forget about Rudolph ;) Did you try it Delina?

I didn't try it no - I can't eat Rudolph!


Btw, I'm a bit confused about the disappearance of the above comment... nevermind.

Sorry Delina it was me! I thought I posted twice so I deleted one, looks like I didn't post twice after all, its the flipping word verification that confuses me, I go bog eyed!
Any way I think Rudolph is the same as Venison which we used to eat loads of in NZ, though it would make me think twice if it was packaged as Rudolph!

Now that I look closer on the package I notice that your reindeer really is Swedish! :)

I'd seen it was you Shirley, I was a bit worried that I'd accidentally removed your comment or some other strange explanation!

I love that Rudolph thing... I'd like to try the non smoked version... :D

My friend Zak is from Finland. I thought he was just kidding. He says those meatballs from IKEA are reindeer, but I read the packaging and there not (if you believe everything you read).
