IKEA wants to reduce its environmental impact by offering vegetarian meatballs

Sadly, from what I read, they won't be vegan, though. If they're going to take that step, why not go all the way?

If they were vegan, I'd plan a trip to IKEA just for meatballs.

seriously. Ikea is my kid's favorite place to visit. I'd take her once a week if they had vegan meatballs.

I ask myself this every time I see veggie burgers with egg or cheese in them, or dairy-free milk with casein and other crepe. Especially when it's some tiny amount that you wouldn't even be able to taste. I think many businesses simply don't realize how big the vegan market is. Sure, we're not the majority, but the increased market reach, and all the publicity you get from vegan groups excitedly spreading the word about new products, should definitely net you more money than having one tenth of an egg, or a little cheese in your product would.

I wish they would bring back their vegan caviar! I only found out about it after they stopped making it but it looked awesome. Did anyone try it?

People in the "vegan pet awesomes" thread said that the vegan Ikea meatballs are now available, but I was in Ikea today and I didn't see them :(

The rollout was 4/5 across all IKEAs and we went on 4/14 and loved them. Maybe they were out? Worth asking! Also get the vegan caviar because it is awesome. I just wish they had vegan cake!

I don't think they are out in the UK until May. The date got pushed back here. Could be the same in Ireland, Blueberry.

Oh interesting. I just saw the 4/9 date for Europe as well. I wonder why they rolled it back? http://mashable.com/2015/04/08/ikea-vegetable-balls/

Amazing. Thank you! I need to schedule a trip. Lucky enough to have Ikea about 45 mins away!

Sadface. I don't like garam masala. I want lingonberry sauce!

No lingonberry sauce is a dealbreaker. I'm not above buying a jar downstairs and bringing it up to the restaurant with me.

I was at IKEA yesterday, and tried out the veggie balls.

I couldn't get a definite answer from the staff on the sauce, nor could I find anything online (bad reception) so i passed on the sauce. They did have a vegan tomato basil soup though, so I got that and put the veggie balls in there, after trying them (I like balls in my soup heh)

They were good! much more veggie than fake meat. The soup was good too :)

Did you go to ikea elizabeth? if so, we should totally meet there and let the kids play while the adults eat meatballs!
I need some new throw pillows so this sounds like the perfect excuse.

We went to the Paramus one, but would happily meet you at the Elizabeth one! Ariann lives closer to Elizabeth as well! That sounds like so much fun!

They are very good! Definitely not faux meat-ish at all, so if you're looking for a traditional swedish meatball analogue, this is not it.

I'm really stoked to have a filling lunch option at IKEA!!
