GLOBAL GRUB – Heinz American Sauce (Germany)

Heinz American Saucee

I’ve never heard of Heinz American Sauce, and I’m an American! After a Google search, I learned it’s been around for a few years in Germany. Its color reminds me of Thousand Island dressing. According to this blog, the sauce is made with tomatoes, shallots, and parsley. Has anyone tried Heinz American Sauce? Also, does Heinz sell their American Sauce in America? (Thanks Paul, who vacationed in Germany, for the photo!)

GLOBAL GRUB – Paprika Pringles and Hot & Spicy Pringles (Italy)

Paprika and Hot & Spicy Pringles

Paprika is a common chip flavour in Europe and after looking through the international Pringles sites, most European countries have Paprika Pringles as a standard flavor. As for Hot & Spicy, it was offered in the U.S. for a while and I did try them. I don’t remember what they taste like, but my taste buds have not forgotten their burn. Hot & Spicy appears to be available in fewer European countries. And that is your Pringles lesson for the day. (Thanks Anastasia in Italy for the photo!)
