      Yes the onions and mustard between to pieces of marble rye. My uncle Jon loved ketchup on it. Not so much me.

    We had some Nueske's tonight, and hubby Chuck and I discussed the differences between it and Fricke's, our favorite.

    I have some Bakalar's in the fridge too, but in an unopened package. I was tempted to open that package too so we could compare Bakalar's head-to-head to the Nueske's, but I restrained myself. We won't get two packages eaten before some of it goes bad.

    Compared to Fricke's, the Nueske's is milder in flavor. It's not blah and bland, just mild. I had used a strong-flavored mustard to make our sandwiches and the Nueske's flavor kind of disappeared. Next time, I'll use something milder like a Dijon. Fricke's can hold its own with a bold mustard. My memory of Bakalar's is it's somewhere between the other two for flavor, but maybe slightly on the bolder side.

    Fricke's is smoother in texture. Nueske's is slightly coarser, as is Bakalar's.

    Unlike the big-name brands, Fricke's, Bakalar's, and Nueske's have a clean mouthfeel when you chew a bite. They don't feel greasy or pasty in the mouth.

      I'm going to have to keep an eye out for Fricke's and Bakalar's. Ive been getting Old Wisconsin brand around here, which is ok, but not great.

    I love the stuff. The best I have found recently is at Aldi and the price is very good. Friends from Germany where I had some awesome braunschweiger liked the sausage I bought from Aldi better than theirs.

      Was it an Aldi brand? If not do you remember what brand it is?

    In South Carolina, most grocery stores sell Oscar Mayer brand. Boar's Head is sold in Publix Grocery and occasionally can find John Morell. Ole Timey Meat Market (a local butcher) sells some that is really good

      Oscar Mayer produces a decent product. Don’t count that out.

      Steve B It is Aldi brand “Deutsche Küche Braunschweiger”. I just finished my tube so I don’t have the wrapper. I also find if you slice what you want and let it warm a bit )other than straight out of the refrigerator) it tastes a lot better. When it is cold it is almost like you can feel the fats. Just a few minutes after slicing is fine. I hope you enjoy it.
