German Shop 24 Product Reviews- German Shopping Online
Recently German Shop 24 approached me, and asked if I would like to do monthly reviews of some of their products. Since I do much of my German Shopping online… and already order many of my favorite items from them… I am MORE than happy to share German Shop 24 Product Reviews.
German Shop 24 carries HUNDREDS of items… from food to cleaning products, from drinks to personal care items. They even have a wishlist, so if you are missing something, you can let them know!
To be open about this…
I recieved all of the products for free, with no expectation that I would love all of them. In fact, my intention is to be perfectly honest about how the products arrived, how they taste, and the value for cost.
I tried each thing myself, and encouraged my family to try them as well.
Finally, I need to let you know that because I am an affiliate of German Shop 24, I receive a small percentage from each item sold through my website, at no extra cost to you.
German Shop 24 Product Reviews
All products sent by German Shop 24 are carefully packed and shipped. Fragile items are bubble wrapped. Prices are quite reasonable compared with other German shopping online. Shipping is free if you order $150. It’s a good idea to keep a list on your refrigerator or pantry… and place the order when it is big enough for that free shipping. (I’ve been known to combine orders with my mother and daughter).
Note! If you order items that should be kept cool (think chocolate in summer months) you will have to pay extra for cooled shipping.
My first box arrived at the beginning of June, and I was THRILLED with the selection! Brötchen, Knusper Puff Reis, Käse Spätzle, Lauch Cremesuppe, Jäger Soße, Baumkuchen Spitze and CHIPS!!
Plus a little packet of Gummi Bears … that was just too small to share.
German potato chips just taste different, and (to me) they have a crunchier texture. Whenever I’m in Germany, I always buy a few bags of the Ungarisch (Hungarian) or Paprika chips to nibble on. The problem is, they don’t travel well in a suitcase. The bag I got from German Shop 24 arrived in perfect condition. The chips weren’t crushed or smashed. They were fresh… and they were gone in a day. People who are looking for a BBQ flavored chip are going to be a bit dissappointed, because the flavor isn’t that overwhelming. They are perfect as a snack with a beer on the patio (or while typing up reviews)
The universal lament of Germans here in America is the lack of Brötchen. German Shop 24 carries a number of different Brötchen that you finish baking at home (including Regular Brötchen, Fitness Brötchen , Raisin Brötchen, and Rye Brötchen) . The flavor of these Bauern Brötchen is just delicious. They have a nice crust, and soft chewy inside. You can eat them just with butter!
I requested this packet of Leek Cream Soup because it comes attached to a memory. My Oma would make Lauch Cremesuppe and serve it before a big meal on Sunday…. or sometimes on a cool evening with Abend Brot. Because I loved the flavor so much, she would send boxes of packets to me. I love that it cooks up quick, tastes delicious, and makes a simple meal of Bread and Aufschnitt more filling and warm. Sadly, I lost my source when my Oma died. I still shopped for packets in Germany, but it’s SOOOO much more convenient to have a source here.
Käse Spätzle has often been called the German answer to Macaroni and Cheese. But… it’s not quite the same, is it? This simple packet mix from Maggi makes a Cheese Spätzle that comes together in about 25 minutes (it takes some cooking down), and tastes delicious. The onions give a nice flavor, but there aren’t chunks. Even the kid who grew up on Kraft Macaroni and cheese gave it the thumbs up. The packet says 2 portions… we split it as a side dish between three of us. I imagine if I gave the whole thing to my kid, she would have eatten it all herself. Serve as a side, or on it’s own with a salad.
Instant Jäger Soße- Hunter Sauce
Short cuts in the kitchen are such a HUGE help these days when everyone is so busy. Packets like this Instant Jäger Soße mean that you can whip up a delicious gravy for your Schnitzel or Frikadellen and have it on the table satisfying your hungry family in no time! It even has dried Mushroom bits for authentic flavor and texture.
Baumkuchen is a specialty cake, and it’s not something you can make at home. Layers of batter are added to a roller and baked until you have 21 layers. It requires a special oven, and a lot of patience. Fortunately, you can buy a whole Baumkuchen during the holiday season from German Shop 24, and for the rest of the year, you can get these amazing and addictive Baumkuchen Spitzen. Once I opened the box, they vanished. The only one who wasn’t crazy about these was the kid, because they had Rum flavoring. You can also get Irish Creme or plain.

At first glance, Fruchtiger Puffreis looks like American Breakfast Cereal… but it’s not. It’s an addictive crunchy snack with lots of flavor, and very few calories. As a child, I had them in my little play store (they came in tiny boxes), and I love them memory attached. When I poured some in a bowl for Tech Guy he was wildly confused… but then they were gone, munched down FAST! These have a citrussy bite, a bit sweet, a bit tart. The kid isn’t sure if she likes them (she thought I was feeding her something Asian!). I think these would be great for little kids or people walking down memory lane.
