Heading out to the grocery store for your daily groceries in Germany? We’ve put together a list of some lovely food and drinks to enjoy, some of it even fresh from the surrounding farms.
Going grocery shopping can be the biggest challenge of the day here. Pack your patience. And your own canvas grocery bag(s). Grocery stores are small and packed with people. Workers are stocking the shelves all day. Aisles are narrow, product space on the shelves is limited, and sometimes a section may be empty. You have to keep moving and get what’s available. No browsing! Grocery shopping is an event, not just a task, and completing it feels like a huge success.
Our Top 8 Groceries to Buy in Germany
#8 – Chipsfrisch ungarisch
Chips with a smoked paprika flavor, Germany’s version of BBQ chips.
#7 – Haribo Candy
Very chewy fruity candy, not super sweet.
#6 – Eggs
Farm fresh, you buy ‘em you wash ‘em, orange yolks, wonderful.
#5 – Chocolate
Wow, delicious milk chocolate, it is a German specialty.
#4 – Riesling
“Germany’s Wine,” the dry (trocken) Riesling in Germany is very enjoyable; different and better than most Rieslings we have had in the US.
#3 – Beer
German beer has a smooth flavor, even the Alcohol-free beers are surprisingly delicious.
#2 – Bread
Fresh baked every morning. When it’s all gone, they’ll bake again tomorrow. Hearty, chewy, dense but light, moist fresh baked bread. What’s not to love?
