Berry and Coke

Materials: 1x Lingon Berry Juice 1x Coke

Description: Ok, so I know this is not a “hack” in the traditional sense of the word, but I feel this needs to be discussed.

So when I go to Ikea, first I have my meatballs (just like I know all of you do as well, come on admit it).

But when it comes to drinks, the best drink seems to be:

2/3 Coke
1/3 Lingon Berry Juice (super Swedish)

Does anyone agree? I sure hope I’m not alone in this………

    Lingonberry + Coke or Orange! :)
    I thought I was the only one mixing these things…

    More details please. What kind of cup are you using? Is this the original IKEA straw?

    I always had mine with lingonberry and tea! Shall try it with coke this weekend ;)

    We get it as boxed juice here, though (IKEA Malaysia)..they don’t put it in the dispensers

    The absence of Lingnonberry at Ikea should be a Felony crime.

  5. Jim says:

    And all of us Stoughton shoppers notice the lack of Lingonberry juice. :-/

  6. Moontree says:

    I’m suprised at how many other people here shop at the Stoughton Ikea! hey there, Ikea neighbors!

    Diet Pepsi and Lingonberry every time! it’s so good!

    They’ve been out of Lingonberry juice a couple of times when I’ve been there. It’s like when someplace that sells french fries runs out of ketchup. I sort of feel like the entire place should shut down, ’cause no one is leaving happy.

    they aren’t just “out” of lingonberry at stoughton, ma, they’re discontinuing it altogether in certain markets. if you love it, better get the lingonberry while you can!

    I’ll be trying several of these combos next time I make it to IKEA. Unfortunately the closest one is 4 hours away!

    I either do lingonberry with coke or mr. pibb. Very tasty! I’ll have to try the Sierra Mist mixture.

  13. yep, but I do 3/4 Lingonberry and 1/4 Sierra Mist. The only thing I drink when I visit IKEA ^___^

  14. Katey Lady says:

    Glad to see other people upset about the lack of Lingonberry in Stoughton! I assumed it was discontinued at all IKEAs. But I guess not. Letter writing campaign, anyone?

    Man, you just invented cherry coke! Erm… I mean berry coke!

  16. I’m a Sprite and Lingonberry girl, myself. Yum!

  17. Laura says:

    Do it also this way, for years now, just love it :) at home i add grenadine often to my coke :)

  18. Anonymous says:

    I love the Lingon-sprite combo myself.
    Never tried with coke! Will do!

  19. Spark*Amy says:

    I always have the lingonberry straight also, but may have to try this and with tea! I could live on the meatballs!

    We have OJ and Sprite on tap at work so I make myself a “mimosa” at work :o

  21. Jimmy Ma says:

    I hope we could also have Lingon Berry Juice in Taiwan too…

    wonder how it taste??

  22. Beate says:

    Catbullar for sure but no blubberrycokewhatever. Way tooooo much sugar. I take coffee.

  23. Stuey says:

    Lingon Berry plus Sierra Mist is indeed a nice combo too! 1 part berry to 1-2 parts Mist tastes best to me.

  24. Jeff says:

    Yeah, Stoughton didn’t have Lingonberry juice the last few times I was there, either. I guess they realized that unlimited lingonberry is not good for profits, when you can charge by the juicebox for it.

    As far as I can tell neither Lingonberry or ice is available in Stoughton, MA, USA anymore. Neither have been available for months. “Ice” is a melted bucket of water next to the drink dispenser. It looks like they’re not serving the open-face shrimp sandwiches either.

    WOW! Most useful post ever. Good thing the owner of the site isn’t so desperate for page hits, or I’d post what the Salmon Dinner looks like after my intestines are done “hacking” it.

    For me it’s the Sierra Mist with Lingonberry. The berry is still the major flavor, but it lightens it up and gives it some bubbles :)

  28. Barb says:

    For me it’s the iced tea with lingonberry. And yes, meatballs!

  29. Angel says:

    I just drink the Ligonberry juice straight. Taste delicious!

  30. edward says:

    They’ve been out of Lingonberry the last few times we’ve visited :-( (At the Stoughton, MA, USA store)

  31. Melissa says:

    I always add berry to my coke…and of course I eat meatballs whenever I go to Ikea.
