Food Shopping In Germany

So I walked to Germany (yes, it’s that close), and decided to check out the food shopping there too. The Rhein Center happened to have this giant Marktkauf store in it. Let’s explore! I was impressed by the Swiss yogurt selections, but this one is even more freakishly vast. And they have giant sized tubs here. Oh look, the best of the wursts… They too are fans of tube technology. Here, we see tomato paste concentrate in tubes. Ketchup and mayo in a tube. I’m not sure how I feel about this. In addition to tube technology, Germans love packet technology. There are aisles and aisles of packeted foods. In no other country will you see so many purple foods sold. Apparently, McDonalds sells ketchup in Germany. These greens look sickeningly amazing. Um… someone tell me what this giant pointy freak cabbage thingy is… Even more cheese than in the Swiss grocery. It’s too much! But then you look at the giant aisle simply dedicated to butters and spreads. Seriously, it’s frightening. They also like to put their veggies in jars here. Cans are popular too, but you’ll see many more jars than in the US. I wonder why that is? And you can bet your on-time German trains that they’re already selling christmas stuff. Oh dear. Prices are quite reasonable. And the depth and breadth of the offerings here were quite impressive. The germans do their grocery super stores quite well!
