Mail order German food

German food and speciality shops not only cater to a German community living abroad, but also to U.S. and British citizens who have travelled to Germany or completed military service in the country.


Speciality food such as pretzels, sausages, bread in a tin, cheese and traditionally smoked ham are amongst the most popular products. Other online offers are lines from established German brands such as Knorr, Bahlsen or Dr Oetker.

Seasonal variety

German seasonal food differs from U.S. and the speciality shops cater to the occasion. Christmas food will include Christstollen (Christmas cake) and lebkuchen (gingerbread biscuits) around Christmas time, Octoberfest specialities include sausages and beer brewed according to the German purity requirement (reinheitsgebot).

Time frame

As many of the products are perishable goods, online retailers ship quickly but might have minimum order requirements between £16 and £19 (2010). Some shops operate from Germany but will only be able to supply tinned food or candy due to expiration dates.
