Perhaps its lust or early-stages of infatuation--but I am absolutely head over heels in love with German bread.
The backeries (in addition to being EVERYWHERE) have such an inviting, tempting atmosphere. All the colors, all the different types--sweet, savory, chocolate, fruit-filled, creme-filled, with cheese or ham on rye, seeded rolls, loafs, croissants, brötchen, pretzels, pumpernickle--and the list goes on.
All for a ridiculously low low price.
Germany is not the place for the faint-hearted. Or the carb watcher.
