La gente come reno en Finlandia?

Sí, pero raramente. Los finlandeses no comen normalmente carne de reno, aunque se promociona constantemente a los turistas. El plato típico turisto laponés es poronkäristys .
En esta captura del Helsinki Times puedes ver que el consumo de carne de reno es de sólo 0.5 Kg por persona. Y supongo que se la servirán a los turistas.

Y sí, en Spain nos gusta la carne parece.. lo que daría por un poquito de jamón ibérico del güeno.

As a Finn I must comment here. We do eat reindeer meat and it doesn’t all go to tourists. The meat is delicious and I would love to eat more of it, but the cost is an issue. It’s not every day meat. The most common form in our family is the “poronkäristys”. Then come the reindeer ham kind of slices that we use for salad or wraps. Only in few special occations we have invested in reindeer whole meat.

The great taste comes from the diversity of herbs the reindeer has eaten.

Thanks for your comment.
I guess that reindeer dishes are normally prepared with that type of “slices” that you said. Or also I’ve tasted it some times in soups, so it could be about 100 gr of reindeer in the dish.

I referenced your post on a Reindeer post I did this week.

I’d say reindeer meat is like ox meat (buey) in Spain: is not mainstream because is expensive, yet delicious. I think I eat a kilo of ox per year, making up for someone who doesn’t ;)
