  1. Peanut butter shortage - help!

        Already looked on Amazon, and again, the only stuff they have is the basket woven variety.
  2. Anime and manga in Germany

      If you're talking about streaming in the way I assume you mean, then that is not a 'normal website'. Unless you are paying a subscription, of which at least a percentage goes to the creator of the content, then you are in the same realm legally as torrents and file sharing, and as someone who found out the hard way that the German authorities do not like illegal content sharing, I can confirm that you are right to be cautious. Why not just buy the DVDs along with a cheap player (if your laptop doesn't have an optical drive?)
  3. Peanut butter shortage - help!

    Haha, thanks Anna. Glad to know I'm not alone in my pb shortage! I had a suspicion it was to do with the daft orange racist in the White House..
  4. Anime and manga in Germany

      What do you mean 'normal websites'? Surely if it's a 'normal website', you're less likely to fall outside what is defined as legal by German law?
  5. Anime and manga in Germany

      I'm guessing you're talking about Hentai.
  6. Here in Münster (NRW) I have not been able to buy the 'regular' kind of peanut butter (the unhealthy variety with added sugar and emulsifiers) for weeks. I have looked in every single supermarket within a 10km radius of where we live, and.. nothing. Is there some kind of embargo on peanuts coming in to Germany that I was not aware of??? 
  7. Coffee - where to buy

    Thanks all for the replies. This is what has completely changed our daily coffee experience  https://tinyurl.com/y6s8jsa6 the design is not the best, (the container the grounds fall in to is poorly thought out) but it is a burr (as opposed to blade) grinder, so with even cheap beans from somewhere like Aldi or Lidl, most of that bitterness you get with vacuum packed ground coffee is gone. The best beans I have tried so far since we have had the grinder are these.        
  8. Coffee - where to buy

    Looking for an online store (or a physical one) that sells “gourmet” coffee beans - I want something other than the usual choice available in Rewe (Melitta, Lavazza own brand etc). Any ideas?
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    Any Brits planning on doing any international travel between now and April 12th?
  10. Brexit: The fallout

      The investigation in to Arron Banks' funding by the NCA (National Crime Agency) is ongoing. My guess is Her Majesty's Government will draw a blank.
  11.    I guess because it's Kölln and it's one of Germany's biggest cities?
  12. Latest update: Got a call today from Vodafone to tell me they had reopened the ticket I raised, (they closed it without letting me know first, proclaiming that the issue had been resolved ) and that they are sending a Telekom Techniker round to check the setup at home. If the issue is related to my setup (it isn't) then I will be billed 50€ for the visit. Pretty bizarre considering that it is clearly them throttling the bandwidth at times when usage across the network is at its highest..
  13.   Well that's somewhat reassuring, I guess..
  14. From the Guardian a few minutes ago https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/mar/25/brussels-confirms-return-of-border-checks-under-no-deal-brexit
  15. Have any other Brits reading this NOT received any kind of government communication about their status post no deal Brexit? My naturalisation application has been in the pipeline for a while now, but other than that I have not heard anything pertaining to my status as a non German citizen in Germany after Brexit.
