This is why I (usually) avoid German supermarkets...

...because I might buy food like this. I made a stop at Lidl to buy vegetables and frosting (for cupcakes for coworkers, and I didn't find something that would work, btw). I did buy some vegetables, but I was also super naughty and bought the things pictured. I generally try to avoid buying such things, even though they're delicious; bread has too many carbs; juice has too much sugar; and animal products (the cheeses) aren't so great for a person, either. Let's not even get started on the "cereal," which is chocolate flavored pockets filled with what amounts to Nutella, which makes it more of candy than cereal.

Instead of having access to such wonderful foods, I usually shop at the commissary, which stocks mostly American products, which aren't as tasty as these German equivalents so I'm a bit better behaved when I shop on base.


  1. Haha, I love Nougat Kissen/Pillows/Pockets/Bits. They are definitely something to not buy all the time!
    Re: frosting you will have to make it - the only store frosting I've seen here is the kind that pours on and gets harder.

  2. They are very delicious, for sure!

    I bought some frosting at the commissary, thankfully. I don't have any frosting-making skillz.
