    Haha that is so funny, and I am So not surprised 😛 I love odd and wacky things as well, and there seem to be quite a few of them around in Germany.
    We’re going to Munich in a few weeks, I will keep a lookout for those cheese sticks!

      The Germans definitely have their fair share of oddities in the country. I found these sticks in the grocery store next to the food court at the main station. Let me know if you find them again or if they were a one time thing.

      You guys are continuing your Eurorail journey? Do more of Germany if you can, it seems to be an under appreciated country on the tourist circuit.

    I love the blending of the old and the new as well, but haven’t seen cheese on a stick here. It seems very un-German.

      It does seem somewhat whimsical, right? But definitely from a German firm, complete with umlauts. I’ll be on the lookup in my travels to see if I can find it again.

      Eww… Spray cheese is awful. It doesn’t even taste like real cheese. And honestly there isn’t much in the can, but I get you for craving home stuff. Have you been trying the Greek feta?

    That is pretty funny! I always get laughed at for my American tastes!

      Thanks for the comment. Where are you that they laugh at your tastes? I tend to own my opinions and am quite happy to crave super sweet American style stuff as well as MacnCheese in a box. 🙂

        oh down in Southern Germany. Löffingen, super small town and they stick to “farmers foods” and aren’t open to trying something new. When I describe a Toll House choc chip cookie (or anything else I like) they make funny faces and shake their heads! I’d make them some if I had known I’d have to import brown sugar and the choc chips too. Oh well I just leave all the baking to them!

          Brown sugar, I’ve seen in the stores. Not sure if it is the same. I once got a bag of chocolate chips from Britain. I was going to make cookies, but ended up just eating them straight. What are you doing up in the forest in such a small town?

      That is awesome! I don’t know if there are multiple stores. This was on a road between Isartor and the Rathaus, so like east of the center.
