After a certain PM grew a pair of balls overnight - dont expect to see much in the way of decent french or german food for a while ;)
They do bags of smaller lebkuchen in Tesco at the moment as well, Iced or Chocolate Covered (with Apricot Filling). The former are definitely the best. Thoroughly addictive.
Last summer we saw some Black Forest ice-cream on sale(made in Switzerland) , a 500ml pack was just over £9 sterling equivalent. We decided not to buy it.
The same Black Forest ice-cream was purchased 2 days later in Lidl near Koblenz in Germany for less than £3 equivalent.....it was probably one of the best ice-creams I have tasted!
If I was a Swiss tourist visiting Germany & saw what the Germans were paying I would feel we were being ripped off at home....
I don't eat hobnobs but lebkuchen is another story - yum :)
Have to be careful though coz I am the only one in the family who likes it so I have to eat it all.....
Trollinger? Good stuff. I got a taste for it when I was in Stuttgart this year, but can't find it for buggery in the UK.Quote:
I had some delicious pork loin steaks served with a sour cherry sauce last summer while staying on the Rhine. German red wine is another secret they keep from us...... how often do you see it for sale here?
It's ridiculous. Germans and Brits, we're so similar - same tastes in food, drink, same lifestyles. The only reason people don't holiday more in Germany is the war.
We have spent quite a bit of time visiting/passing through Germany over the last 6-7 years during our summer holidays in our motorhome. We use the German motorways in preference to the French when travelling south. Most of mainland Europe is far more 'motorhome or caravan' friendly than the UK is, sadly.
Right thats my lunch break sorted!
My German Father-in-law used to rear his own pigs and birds and slaughter them. He was also a great cook.
he sent us over a turkey one Christmas... it got delayed in the post... hmmm. green turkey...
I have an aldi nearby....i may try these if I can find them. Otherwise, the nearest Lidl is 12 miles away!
Aldi just down the road from my work, lidl near my house, sorted!
-_- Aldi here dont sell them and when I asked they said hadn't had them for months.....
