So what do we do if someone decides to brink some Hákarl or Lutefisk?

Lutefisk is served warm so you're safe from us.

But some Swedes might bring Surstrøming xD

Only if they drive all the way down to Berlin, that thing cannot be shipped in aircraft :D

Here are a few things that I though of bringing, which is typically danish
  • Mead (in danish: Mjød) an alcoholic honey beverage. Very sweet like a desert wine. I just realized this may not be the best idea considering the hotels' policy regarding bringing your own booze.
  • Red pourage with cream (in danish: Rød grød med fløde). This is the first thing we force foreigners to pronounce, because it is a real tongue twister. But it is too a dish. Originally on wild berries, though this is strawberry based. Very sweet. Consistency like thin marmalade.
  • Pickled herring (in danish: Marinerede sild). Brits have a long tradition of picked stuff. This danish version is different. Best served on rye bread (also typically danish. The only closest is the german Schwarzbrot). The taste is sour from the vinegar it is preserved in.
  • Different kinds of blue cheese. While this may not be exclusively danish we still have a huge facotiry in the city of Høng, making nothing else than Blue vein cheese. Reason being: the factory is so infested with the blue cheese spores, that everything else gets "infected" XD
  • Meatballs (in danish: Frikadeller) - yes I know you Dutch have something similar. But ours are different. Different I tell you *shakes fist*. Based on pork. We do eat a lot of pork in Denmark...

edit: The tongue twister is spelled "Rød grød med fløde" and not "gløde" as I wrongly wrote before XD Try let google pronounce it for you XD

This sounds like a great deal of fun!  I'm trying to think if there's anything I can bring from the US (that I can have in my luggage.)

Not my favourite, but bak kwa is very singapore :)  Durian flavoured candy is also very singapore (and I like it :D).  Maybe some local chips or somesuch (seaweed or white fish snacks?)

Not too sure what else, a lot of things seem to be fried or need to be consumed fresh.

The customs info says meat can't be brought in from outside the country, so that would be a problem. I do have some ideas for some local candies though!

That sounds like something they'd have in America =p They like sweet stuff a lot, I believe!

Looking forward to this :)

Sadly I can't think of anything interesting to bring (That is shippable by aircraft and will survive the trip unrefrigerated) besides some cellophane-bagged "Junk-food" snacks thatare as far as I know unique to Israel:

Hmm, peculiar, I had no problem bringing sausage to Singapore from Europe (AVA allows up to 5 kilos of pork meat & meat products without a permit; and nobody seemed to care at the airport red lane, so fuckit XD) and no problem with bak kwa from Singapore to Europe (again nobody cared to check me in Hungary, I just zoomed through the green lane and that's it) — the German zoll site is very vague about meat based food (which is usually a very different regulation than raw meat or live animals), I guess it would be a good idea to send them an email and ask them what they think.  It's what I did with the Singapore Customs.
