My brother and I spent 45€ on English snacks and beverages as a sort of christmas present to each other since we had absolutely no idea what to give each other, so we went shopping in Cologne.

Stocked up on a 26-packet-bag Walkers crisps, polos, fruit pastilles, twiglets, pork scratchings, custard creams, nerdz, root beer, strongbow, scrumpy jack's, woodpecker, and a whole lot more.

Must swing past that shop more often I guess, too bad they were all out of scotch eggs.

Replace Euro with goldpieces and this might almost sound like something out of a popular fanatasy novel :P

I went to a local chocolate company today and profited from industrial selling of high-quality German chocolate. Same procedure as every year.

HA! HA! I knew it was only a matter of time until one of you divulged this secret! Finally, the secret of your awesomeness will be mine!


I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Cooters on fire off the shoulder of General Discussion. I watched spittle-flecked posts glitter in the dark near the Pub. All those moments will

Walkers > Lays

European snacks just don't cut it next to British stuff.

Rookie, I agree that Twiglets are what keeps industrious Swindon running.

Indeed. I always pick up a packet of salt and vinegar crisps whenever I pass a Subways....it's so hard to get walkers here save for Subways and the English shop in Cologne.

Germans are more accustomed to a weird paprika flavoring of crisps.

But paprika flavours are the best.
