TIL IKEA restaurants in the UK gives you a slightly larger portion of meatballs for a lower price compared to the US, which is the supposedly the opposite of how food is supposed to work 👀 🇺🇸 US menu: 🇬🇧 UK menu: .

ah, dug up this piece which confirms my suspicions: "Their policy is to be the absolute lowest price on [an] item within a 30-mile radius, even if it means selling at a loss." i'll ask my friends at IKEA about this tomorrow lol

oh okay so i dug thru IKEA receipts and photos and turns out menu pricing/portions vary between stores in the US. the IKEA US website advertises 8 meatballs + 2 sides for $6, but i looked thru photos/receipts and i got 10 meatballs + 1 side last year for $4.50 in pittsburgh!

in the US, the meatballs comes w/ 2 sides instead of 1 (mashed potatoes + steamed veggies by default)

i haven't really noticed any regional differences in the US, except for ICEE machines in stores built between 2005-2015, and larger portion sizes at IKEAs in texas (like you get 10 meatballs instead of 8!)

ah, it’s a cafe & swedish food market only thing in the US, and half the time they only have frozen ones available (and the frozen ones costs the same as baked)

key takeways from the 50-page FedNow doc: 📆 it will run 24/7/365(+1), incl weekends + holidays ⏲️ phased rollout starting 2023-24 🔌 there will be an API 🏦 potential interoperability w/ ACH and private sector ⚠️ biggest concerns are over competition w/ the private sector

I know you're heard it all, but worth your 60 seconds as a reminder of how smart, considered, eloquent and thoughtful President Obama was. We have become normalized to the "crazy" and I long for a time where the President doesn't seek to make news every day
