American Things We Brought Back

American Things We Brought Back

I didn’t get my own pictures of everything before we devoured it all, but I thought I’d share some of the junk food we found worthy enough to stuff in our already full suitcases and bring back to Germany with us.

Cheddar Jalapeño Cheetos – 2 Bags

I actually had never had these before moving to Germany. On one of our trips to the US, one of Mr. Faultier’s friends requested these specific Cheetos and we were curious why she wanted these and not Flamin’ Hot or the regular ones. So we bought our own bag to try them out, and they were delicious!

Pumpkin Spice Poptarts

I’m about as basic as they get, and I love Poptarts. Of course these were going to end up in my suitcase.

Whoppers

I haven’t found any candy like these in Germany, which is a shame, because they are delicous! I think something happened to our box on the journey, though, because some of the balls had become uncrispy and squished.

Correction: Mr. Faultier has informed me that you can get Maltesers in Germany. I no longer understand why we grabbed Whoppers.

Milk Duds

Same story as the Whoppers, minus getting squished during the trip. They come pre-squished usually.

Hot Tamales

I love Hot Tamales, but, like with Whoppers and Milk Duds, there isn’t really an equivalent candy here. Don’t get me wrong, Germany has tons of great candy – hundreds of varieties of Haribo and super high quality chocolate, but sometimes I just want the movie theater junk from back home.

Red Vines

Don’t tell my dad (we’re a Twizzlers family), but I really like Red Vines, so I snuck a box into the house to put in my suitcase.

Pancake Mix

Pancake Mix

I guess Germans are just better bakers than Americans, because we couldn’t really find the “just add water” pancake mix. I tried to make pancakes from scratch a few times, but it just wasn’t the same. So we got two full boxes from Target to bring home with us. That’s a decent chunk of weight for our suitcases! But I think it was worth it.

  1. I’ve seen pictures from American shops and they are full of those pumpkin things. That’s something I want as well haha. At least, I want to try it. I guess, there is something similar to the Whoppers – at least in Switzerland: it’s called Maltesers. 🙂

    1. I didn’t realize Maltesers were available in Germany, because my husband didn’t stop me from getting the Whoppers. I just assumed we couldn’t get them in Germany if we’d be taking up space in our suitcase with them!

      1. I’m not sure if they taste 100 % the same. I have never eaten Whoppers, but from what it says on the package and what it looks like it seems very similar 🙂
