Depending on where you live in Canada, food trucks are probably just coming to the forefront of your local foodie culture. (Unless you live in Vancouver, where some of the best food trucks on the planet currently roam the streets in search of hungry patrons. The rest of us envy you.)
Over in Sweden, the food truck movement has been a slow one — thanks to lots of legislation and red tape — which prevented a real explosion of culinary goodness until late 2013. Once residents were given the official go-ahead to make their food dreams come true, they really went all out.
Case in point, the latest truck popping up in Stockholm: Wonderboo. The truck doesn’t serve the latest dumpling dishes or buy into the street meat craze (although Swedish meatballs on a stick would be pretty good right about now). Instead, the truck is a gourmet one that offers canines a tasty treat.
That’s right, Wonderboo is a dog food company, and its mission is to deliver healthier choices to our pets, who often get the scraps from human dishes at regular food trucks, or whatever their owners dish out to them from a bag or can.
“Dog owners’ awareness has now increased, and the same high demands we put on our own food is now placed on the food we feed our dogs,” Wonderboo’s Magnus Rosengren told Yahoo! in a statement. “I want to help dog owners give their dogs the best conditions for a long and healthy life while making it convenient.”
It also seems like another great excuse to take the old pooch out for a walk. One tasty treat for him, and one for you next door at the tapas truck. Swedish meatballs for all!
