Dear German Snacks,
First I’d like to start by saying how much I admire you. You bring flavours to the table that I would never have thought of. From pineapple yogurt, to balsamic crisps – or even peanut flavour crisps – to so many Ritter Sport flavours Pocky is leaning over to peek at what you’re going to come up with next.
But here’s the thing – do you really have to all come in massive packets? Crisps are ONLY sold in massive bags and one Ritter Sport chocolate bar has something between 500 and 600 calories!
So, with this in mind, this is what happens every single time -
Me – hmm… I’d like a small snackage of crisps/chocolate. I will buy one and then eat just a little of it.
German Snacks, have you ever actually succeeded in eating just a small portion of a bigger packet?! Have you?! Ritter Sport says that 25g of chocolate is one serving. It would take all the will power in the world to stop at just one quarter of a bar.
When I first stepped into Germany the thing I noticed first was all the moobs that are here. German food isn’t very healthy. I know this. You know this. The average German bloke doesn’t care about things like how much salt he’s taking in. Unlike in many other countries, calorie lists and salt/carb/fat quantities are not clearly labelled on German food stuffs.
So here’s what I propose – how about you make SMALLER packets of things? You’ll be helping not only me but also all the poor people who eat a whole packet of crisps in one sitting (after kidding themselves by closing the packet and putting it in the cupboard, only to take it out again and eat the rest 10 mins later) or people who have no idea that that knusper flake Ritter they just scoffed has around 600 calories.
If you could do this, you would be super awesome.
Love and kisses,
