Is it weird to buy food from Ikea?

I used to think it was (and maybe it still is), but I have developed a strange occasional hankering for the Swedish meatballs they sell.

I picked up this bizarre liking from my Swedish friend Adam when I was in the UK. To my surprise, he told me that Ikea was actually one of the few sources of Swedish food that he and his friends had access to.
Who would have thought that Ikea was this source of cultural comfort for the Swedish community?
The meatballs aren't even that great.... but there's something strangely appealing about them.
