A Creamy (Krímí) Tradition

Ask an Icelander about their favorite way to eat skyr and here’s what they’ll tell you: Take a bowl of plain skyr, add freshly foraged berries or a sprinkle of your favorite chocolate and a big glug of fresh cream from a jug.

What's in a Name?

Where does the name “Krímí” come from?

Is it Icelandic? Not technically, but we thought it was a lot easier to say than the actual Icelandic word for ‘creamy’—rjómalöguð—so we did what we often do with English words: we ‘Icelandicized’ it. And, so, Krímí (pronounced CREAMY) was born.
