Maggi Christmas & Mexico

Nothing says 'Christmas' to me more than receiving a fine bottle of my most favorite sauce in the world – Maggi Sauce. J's mom gave me what I thought was a wine bottle in a bag. But upon lifting it out, I saw the red (usually yellow) cap I've become all too familiar with. This one is from Germany! And you know what, it tastes totally different than the U.S. version. Now I can add this German edition to my collection of Maggi sauce from the U.S., Switzerland, Poland (thanks Erik) and the Phillipines. Woohoo. If you guys know of any other foreign editions, please let me know where I can find them. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all that have laid eyes on this site. Thank you for your support and a year of solid readership. I couldn't be more happy. J & I are off to Mexico!!!

And I've got this bathing suit in 5 different neon colors, ready to go.

Whoa. Had no idea it came from different countries...and with different tastes. But MSG is still a main ingredient right?

Happy Holidays to you and Jeni!

Haha, I was just putting that on my list of what I need to stock up on. Red cap allll the way!

Merry Christmas to you and Jeni, oh, I mean Feliz Navidad!

I don't think that I really needed to see your online likeness hanging his stuff out there like Borat! Congrats on your Maggi Sauce acquisition anyway :)

I too have an industrial-sized bottle of Maggi "Imported from Europe" and says Product of Germany (all in English). This was purchased at the local Asian grocer.

Did J's mother get this in Germany? My mother-in-law hand-carried several Maggi bottles back from Germany (obviously this was before the latest airline restrictions on liquids). I was on the same trip, but the cost savings weren't worth the effort.

The Lee's Sandwiches in Garden Grove had smaller Maggi bottles that were in French.

We love Maggi Sauce as well, but your post speaks volumes about your adoration. Funny! You should have added the bottle to your bathing suit pix and sent it to Nestle. Maybe they'll use it in their next marketing campaign. Have a grand time down South!

You got a shout out in the LA Times Food section on January 2nd, 2008! Congrats! I started reading your site since someone linked me to your "Why Asians Have Food Blogs" post and I've been hooked ever since. Keep up the good work!

The Maggi from France is the best! I always buy some home when I travel to Paris. It tastes different from the other ones. You should try it if you have a chance. They carry it in the states as well, but make sure they are the real thing, and not the imitation ones :)
