50 years of “frikandel” (or is it 55 years?)

frikandelThe famous Belgian/Dutch/German snack sausage “frikandel” (also known as curryworst) celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Some doubt has rissen about this “anniversary”. It is not clear who actually invented the popular sausage.  Snack producer Beckers claims their founder Jan Bekkers invented the sausage in the fifties. Others see De Vries Vleessnacks in Dordrecht as the real inventor.

A new variation of the frikandel, the “Pikandel”, will be launched this year. Same sausage but more spicy. This week the Dutch mens magazine Panorama gives away 100,000 Pikandels to its readers, a commercial stunt in cooperation with snack producer Beckers.

A movie on the Beckers website gives you an idea of the production process of the frikandel.

    I think you can buy frankadelle through the consortium of poop peddlers. They offer green feces with pine nuts or macadamia nuts. They also sell frankadelle cum Popsicles and frinkadelle scat bars which are made from the feces of the hottest Belgian women on earth. Also dick sausages are available upon request and they come with an extra load of cum to rub onto your childs face.
