5 German Favorite Snacks On The Go

Germany has plenty of immigrants who mostly came from other European countries like Turkey, Spain, Italy, Greece, France and Netherlands. Well, some Asian are here too like me. Every immigrants brought their own tradition and culture and of course their food culture. We have abundant restaurants from different nationalities but Germans are still fond of eating their favorite snacks.

Here are some of the Germans favorite snacks.

1. Brötchen mit Aufschnitt 

Brötchen with Aufschnitt means a bread roll with cold cut or smoked meat like ham, salami, Schwarzwälderschinken (Black Forest ham), roast beef or pork. It could be with cheese too like Gouda, Brie or cheese spread. There are lots of Brötchen variations. You only have to tell to the vendor what kind of fillings you want to have. Mostly, it is just a simple Käsebrötchen or Schinkenbrötchen (cheese or ham bread roll).

2. Currywurst

Currywurst is a hot sliced pork sausage covered with curry catsup or tomato paste made into sauce and eaten with bread rolls or French fries. Currywurst is one of the most eaten snacks in Germany.

I could have added Döner here in the list but this food is not German. It is a Turkish popular snack which is getting popular in this country.
