As Volkswagen awaits judgment for choking our country with excess emissions, one of its smoky products still garners undying international affection. In 1973, VW began offering homemade “currywurst” at press events, receiving such praise that they began selling the sausage.
Today, their headquarters in Wolfsburg houses a butcher shop that processes millions of pounds of meat per year. In the throes of the scandal, sausage sales soared; in 2015, VW sold 7.12 million sausages and a million fewer cars.
Volkswurst is only available in Europe, but if you test drive in Germany the dealership will offer you free links.
