Where to Buy German Food on the Internet

Anyone that has ever visited Germany, lived there, or has German roots will remember the sausages, breads, schnitzels, and baked goods. Street vendors sell curry wurst – a favorite snack, while cafes dish out scrumptious tortes. Although many of these foods are not available at the local grocery store in America, people longing for that food experience can order German groceries from a number of reputable Internet sites. The phrase on the Germandeli homepage says it the best: “It’s not just about the food…it’s about the memories.”

Germandeli’s site boasts over 5,000 different items, neatly arranged in easy-to-access grocery aisles. Germandeli ships a variety of meats, breads, soups, baking powders, and other items imported from Germany. Nutella, Nivea products, curry ketchup, and even Fanta are made in Europe. Most people can tell the difference. Germandeli is one of the few sites to ship red-herring salad, a December holiday favorite. Check out is easy to navigate and offers a variety of payment options.

Kuhn’s Delicatessen & Café in Des Plaines, Illinois, also carries a wide array of German products. Kuhn’s also lists a variety of liquors and brandy selections, including Verpoorten Egg Liquer, Aquavit, and Asbach Uralt. Whether shopping for marzipan, Nuremberger Christmas cookies, or jars of red cabbage, Kuhn’s offers a wide selection.

Euroguild is another source for German foods. Shoppers can order Jacobs coffee, wursts, Schaller and Weber products including butter, and spaetzle. The German Corner LLC Store is an excellent site for German goods from apparel to music, but offers limited food items.
