The IKEA Lingonberry Pulled Pork Sandwich is a new menu offering from the flatpack furniture retailer for consumers in the US to enjoy that merges traditional flavor profiles. The sandwich features a vinegar-based BBQ sauce that has been infused with lingonberry in order to put a Swedish spin on the traditionally American menu item. The sandwich thus features a sweet, savory flavor profile and is being served alongside a side of mac & cheese at a price point of $4.99 at participating IKEA locations nationwide.
The IKEA Lingonberry Pulled Pork Sandwich is likely to be a hit amongst shoppers seeking out a new flavor experience with a familiar recipe and comes served on a fresh bun that pairs perfectly with the meaty filling.
