I was also surprised at Real's grocery section. A whole corner of the store was stocked with candy. I only took a quick peek in that area because I don't need candy, but was astounded by how many different types of gummies, chocolates, and other sweets there were.
After reading an article from The Local, which is a German newspaper in English, I shouldn't be too surprised by the huge amount of sweets available at the grocery stores; the newspaper reports that Germans eat almost 32 kilos of sweets a year! That is 72 pounds of sweets. Ouch, my teeth hurt just thinking about it.
|Gummy rats, anyone? I saw some other ones there were even more realistic than these were; ick!|
