Hey everyone!

 

Very weird request here...

Does anyone know where I can buy a "ring pop?" It's a ring shaped candy, that has a giant candy diamond. Like so

Any specific shops? Not just "at any spatkauf" because I looked at a bunch, and can't find one!

If it helps, I live near Warschauer Str.

 

I need it to propose to my future wife. It's kind of a joke, but I need to find this thing!

 

Thanks everyone!!

I didn't want to have to wait for shipping... you can get almost ANYTHING online... I was hoping a store would be selling them somewhere...

You need a shop that sells Süßigkeiten, not a regular supermarket - a shop that stocks all kinds of sweet stuff in all kinds of variations. Might want to try this place, it looks like it might have the kind of thing you're looking for.

I'm looking for cooking spray/spray oil.

 

To the person looking for sourdough bread: I bought a bunch of random rolls at Penny this weekend, and one of them was sourdough! Unfortunately I don't remember what they called it, and their selection seems to vary by week and by store.

Does anyone know where I can find Neutrogena T-Gel Hair Conditioner? I've been looking on the internet but apparently, German stores don't have this in stock.

Not being in Berlin, I haven´t seen any there, but I was wondering if it wouldn't be easier to simply make one, as I have never seen blue cheese dressing around Munich either - must admit that I have never actively looked for it either!

Anyway, here is a recipe to try:

Hi all.

Anyone know where to find green cardammom in Berlin? Preferbly close to Berlin-Buch, Bernau, or Rontgental areas?

Here is an article on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardamom

Picture attached too.

I'm in East Berling. Something in Buch or Zeppernick would work..post-227143-13731780981216.jpgpost-227143-13731780981216.jpg

Do you have an Asian supermarket close by? You should be able to get cardamom there with no problems. That's where I get mine, but I'm not in Berlin.

You should be able to find this in any ethnic shop, particularly Asian, Indian, Persian and Turkish shops. Hell, even good German supermarkets will have this. Look for "Kardamom".
