After having been in Germany for two months, I decided to make a list of some foods I enjoy eating, both to let you find out more about this culture and to reassure whoever keeps asking me whether I like German food/ I am eating enough.
1) A classic: french fries with bratwurst/ currywurst. I know it’s not one of the healthiest foods, but once a week it’s dooable.
2) Marzipan biscuits: very tasty and in a good variety of shapes. Since now there are already lots of Christmas products, those I bought have a star shape.
3) Products sold in bakeries (I also mentioned them in one of the past articles). In particular, a cheese pretzel bread , whole grain bread and a pretzel. I am also posting pictures, one of the place where I often buy these products and the other in order to show the great variety of bread sold in supermarkts.
4) Quark: one of the typical cream cheeses, used both for main dishes and together with fruits to make delicious yogurts. An example is in the picture: you can also see potatoes, which are often used as sides.
5) There are also puddings, most of them prepared with whipped cream. Among my favourites, one is a chocolate flavour produced by Müller and the other vanilla flavoured. It’s difficult to give you an idea of their taste, but they are really delicious.
6) Soups: like potatoes, often cooked by Germans. I personally think they are good, although some of them are too spicy for me, as I generally don’t eat spicy food. That’s why I mostly eat those having a more delicate taste.
7) Waffles and Milka products: I know they are not typically German, but before coming here I didn’t eat waffels as often as now. I must say that Germans often eat them. As far as chocolates, I admit I am gluttunous but I can’t avoid buying them, each time I see plenty of choices at the supermarket. Still in the sweet section, the Adventkalendars: I had often heard about them, but never seen them. I think I am going to buy one of them!
8) Fruit-flavoured water: the tastes and choice are subjective. In this picture, an example of what you can normally find in big stores.
I also want to thank Caroline for her feedback and corrections for this article.
