Living in Germany: foods that are tastier than they sound

Would you eat a cold dog or spaghetti ice cream? And “Muckefuck” can’t possibly be edible, can it? Actually, these are all names of German food items that are arguably tastier than they sound – whether or not they’re your cup of tea.

Maultaschen (Feedbag)

In the southern region of Swabia, the faithful observe Maundy Thursday and Good Friday by not eating meat. Hungry Swabians, however, came up with a way to secretly still their Easter appetites by hiding the meat inside dough. The origin of the name is unclear. Perhaps they were first eaten in Maulbronn. But we prefer the theory that they simply resemble a Maultasche, or feedbag.
