SINGAPORE: IKEA’s signature meatballs returned to its Singapore stores with a big bang on Friday.
IKEA Singapore said it sold 249,375 meatballs in one day after resuming sales of the product. The meatballs were sold for 10 cents a piece to mark its return at IKEA’s restaurants.
The price proved to be simply irresistible as customers in Singapore ate almost four tonnes of the round Swedish delight in just one day, helping to put IKEA Singapore into the Singapore Book of Records for the ’Most Number of Meatballs cooked and sold in a day’.
IKEA Singapore had temporarily stopped the sale of the meatballs last week as a precautionary measure for DNA testing. It was to reassure customers that the IKEA meatballs sold here do not contain horsemeat.
