Hubi's Traumgewürz

My department just gave out "gift packs" of "Hubi's Traumgewürz" as a gift to employees. Apparently it contains 30 different spices and and other "natural flavourings" - though the jar fails to list them all. Presumably monosodium glutamate is in there somewhere.

I think every country has its' peculiar processed food or condiment - in the UK it's HP Sauce, Marmite etc etc, in CH it's Rivella and Maggi.

I wonder if using this stuff in cooking is a prerequisite of gaining Swiss nationality?

Cheers,

Nick

It sure is,either Aromat or Maggi has to be used otherwise u can kiss the swiss passport goodbye:P

Tho' I am not too fond of them two either,and for the taste of maggi liquid in a dish you can always use lovage (Liebstöckel) which is now known as MAGGICHRUT,because maggi smells of it or was it the other was round!

Re: Hubi's Traumgewürz

Keep pouring Maggi over everything, and eventually all will be clear, why we here, why we stay....the sky will take on a different hue and you will know what it is to be Swiss....

Re: Hubi's Traumgewürz

Aromat and Maggi suck,
only seasoning worth something (other than the ones you make yourself) is:



Great on everything!

So, you working for the bank? We also received with somewhat sinister gift. Either we have the same thoughtful employer or Hubi is doing OK for himself this Yuletide season.

Re: Hubi's Traumgewürz

We got a box of Twinings Prince of Wales Loose Leaf Tea from the company as a Christmas gift.... at least we know what it is. I looked up Hubistraumgewürz. Even on the website Hubi won't tell you what's in it. Very odd. "Gift" in the German sense might be right here.

Re: Hubi's Traumgewürz

and then maybe we can get a hold of some Hubis and poison the rest.
This is way off the point of the forum, I apologise.
