German Food : An introduction to German Cuisine
German Food : An introduction to German Cuisine

Arriving in Germany we had the opportunity to taste test German cuisine. From Germany breakfasts to currywurst it was a thrill to taste test as many German foods as we possibly could during our brief 3 weeks in the country.

Since we’re hanging out in Germany these days we thought we would show you what a German breakfast looks like. We’ve setup the table and as you can see it consists of a lot of different breads – like we have a few buns here – and also meats. Germans like to have salami, ham and just different deli cuts for breakfast. We also have a few different cheeses, smoked salmon and – of course- you can’t forget Muesli.

You can’t come to Berlin and not have currywurst. Actually, yesterday was the very first time I tried it and I instantly loved it. Today we’re going to be trying two different kinds of curry wurst. We’re going to be trying some from the East side and also some from the West side and they’re completely different.

The currywurst is considered fast food here in Germany. It is a sausage that is steamed and then fried. It is sliced up and served with ketchup and curry powder over top. It is delicious!

You can typically pick up the currywurst for anywhere between 2.50 to 3 Euro just on its own and if you want to get a side like fries it usually is about 5 Euros.

If Currywurst is to your liking, you’ll want to check out this quirky museum devoted to Berlin’s favorite sausage. One of the coolest things about this museum is that they have a giant sofa shaped like a Currywurst.

For today’s video you are in for a sweet treat – quite literally – because we are in Germany and we’ve decided to taste test a few of our favorite chocolates.

The brand we are testing is Ritter Sport. We have six different varieties – let’s show them.

Okay, the first kind we’re going to be trying is this yellow pack and it is a corn flake chocolate. It is regular milk chocolate but stuffed with cornflakes.

I’ve never had chocolate with corn flakes but I like both things, so I have high expectations here.

The next one we’re trying is the red package – this is Marzipan. It is basically an almond paste made with honey and sugar. That is the filling inside of this chocolate. It also looks like it is a darker chocolate. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate because I prefer milk chocolate.

Okay, now this is the one I’ve been really wanting to have. I’m a huge fan of peppermint chocolate and Ritter Sport is high quality chocolate so I have very high expectations for this.

Number four. This one is the Espresso flavor. Do you normally like espresso? I do not like coffee, so no espresso for me. Yeah, we’re not coffee drinkers so I’m not sure how we’re going to like these ones.

Next up we have a new flavor that I haven’t seen before. It is called Olympia. It has Yogurt, honey, nuts and grape sugar if my translation is correct. That sounds interesting. Let’s see. Take a square..

Last but certainly not least we have coconut. I’m a huge coconut fan. Do you think you’re going to like this one? I’ve actually been having this chocolate when Sam is not around. I go into the supermarket and get a square for myself and gobble it up.

That is the best one in my opinion.

This looks so good that I’m taking two squares.

I think we’ve figured out some quite important here. If we were to buy the coconut flavor Ritter Sport we’re going to be fighting over it. Quite literally. Hey, give it to me.

If you’re in Germany traveling and you want to try the Ritter Sport they are 99 cents of a Euro.

Of course, you cannot come to Berlin and not eat a Wurst or a sausage. I’ve just ordered myself one from the street. They have lots of local stands and this was only one Euro and thirty five cents. Big bite! That is so good and I got it with mustard, which is even tastier.
