I read this message today and thought: If anyone spots items, from our home lands, appearing on German supermarket shelves, to post them here.

 

For example, I saw that our Hit supermarket was selling four different flavours of Branston Pickle - but not the brown one :( .

 

An aside: Keydeck, do you have your camera with you at all times?

The Rewe on the corner of Schliessheimerstr. and Herzogstr. currently has Cathedral City 16 month cheddar cheese in with the packaged cheeses. I don't know how long they will carry it.

Was waiting for a thread like this to ask:

 

Does anyone know if its possible to get Buckfast anywhere here.

Most likely a long shot but you never know.

 

Really miss the stuff...oh the memories

Our Edeka has been selling Tate & Lyle's Golden Syrup. That, combined with some rather old pudding rice, a slow cooker, a splosh of milk and a dab of sugar have combined to make poor German H v. confused about English eating habits this week.

Theres a rule over HP sauce outside of the UK.

Wherever you see it the food is bound to be rubbish.

Examples - Teneriffe, Cyprus

I am not sure if (m)any of you have a Metro card. I was there today and I noticed they had a new brand of crisps "Burts". I bought a packet of salt and vinegar just to see what they were like - and I thought they were good. They had smokey bacon and ready salted (I think). Cost about €2.50 (surprised I thought they were cheaper, hmmm.)

Big fan of "Irische Bauernkäse" from Hit.. Cheap, and excellent with baguette, wine, and assorted antipasti..

In Rewe today I saw 230g bars of Cadbury's Whole Nut and Fruit and Nut - not in the chocolate section, but with the biscuits for some reason. Bit pricey though at E3.29 a pop.

Why would you want to buy Cadbury's here when there is such a wide selection of real chocolate available?

because Cadbury's chocolate rules. The only one that comes close to it is Ritter Sport Alpenmilch.

Was the cadburys called chocolate or some weird name? I remember a few years ago the EU (or someone) objected to cadburys calling their chocolate chocolate as it didn't have enough chocolate in it.

 

Anyone now got a craving for chocolate :-)

For now. I am sure that when Kraft have finished "improving" the brand it will be just another bland pile of crud.

 

I wonder if we will be able to tell the differnce between all the various brands or if they just use the same generic chocolate in all of them.

 

Cadburys fruit and nut tasting exactly the same as Milka? Yugh

It's hardly true to call Cadbury's produce 'chocolate', considering it only contains 20% cocoa solids...

I don't care how much chocolate is in it if it tastes good, cannie beat a flake, although the dark chocolate at Aldi is suprisingly good.

A wide range of Sharwood's chutney is available from Karstadt. The original (shown here) has been my favourite for more years than I care to remember.
