    Hello,

    My friend just got back from Germany and she brought me back some mustard. It's the kind in the metal tube (like toothpaste). It's been a LONG time since I studied German and I'm curious as to what it says.

    The brand is: Löwenserf

    One tube is Green and says "Mittelscharf" (does that mean Mild?) and the other one is Red and says "Extra" (I think I can decifer that one [​IMG])

    Under the ingredients it says:

    As you figured out already, the green Löwensenf is medium hot, while the red one is extra hot.

    The brand is common here. It's a good mustard, but I wouldn't say any better than some in the States. There ARE some great mustards over here though. Particularly some of the French mustards. I mean Freedom mustards. [​IMG]

    Yes, the packaging is common for most condiments. Mustartd, kecthup, mayo. I don't like, just because it always reminds me of toothpaste. [​IMG]
