Living in Germany: foods that are tastier than they sound

You can argue about just how tasty German cuisine is. But these dishes have such quirky names, you just have to sink your teeth into them. Here’s a look at our favorite 10 unusually named dishes 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.

But we prefer the theory that they simply resemble a Maultasche, or feedbag.
