Mustard

German Eurofighter transports sweet mustard to Croatia

Croatian Times

Sausage-noshing German ambassadors used a 67 million GBP Eurofighter warplane to fly emergency supplies of mustard to a VIP party.

Diplomats in Croatia wanted to serve traditional white bangers at the bash to celebrate Germany's 60 years as a democracy but couldn't get the right mustard anywhere locally.

So they called in air support from the Luftwaffe who sent pilot Norbert Biehler with a case of the special sweet mustard for the party, reports Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List.

Now the extravagant use of military funds in under investigation in Germany.

"It's difficult to see how they can justify the expense," said one Berlin political source.

The Bavarian white sausage is regarded as the ultimate in German cuisine and there is even a 64-page best selling book devoted to the proper way to eat the delicacy including how to serve the special sweet mustard that accompanies it and what beer to drink.
