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.

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.
