The new veggie ball is an alternative to the traditional IKEA meatball and is made up of carrot, chickpeas, kale, bell peppers, other vegetables and seasoning. Priced at $7.95 for a serving size of 10 and $2.95 for the kids' serving size of five. The veggie balls (gronsaksbullar) are cruelty-free, sustainable menu option which is line with IKEA's dedication to sustainability, the environment, and good health (don't worry though, you can still get them with chips on the side...).

The veggie ball launch follows concerns IKEA had about their carbon footprint, as revealed by figures in their recent Sustainability Report. IKEA decided to look for innovative, eco-friendly solutions, and found a big opportunity to lower their impact on the environment. The big question is will Adelaide people embrace the veggie ball as much as Krispy Kreme donuts! As many customers visit IKEA especially for their food, it will interesting to see if this new addition will win over new fans.
