Finding the Volkswagen Sausage

One of the most unique bestsellers in the Volkswagen brand isn’t an automobile or related part at all; it’s a sausage. Branded as a “VW original part” (specifically number 199 398 500 A), VW currywurst has been produced since 1973. Since that time, it’s won prizes at German food fairs and received gold awards from the German Agricultural Society.

Though mostly made with the intention of feeding their employees, the currywurst has gained popularity beyond the VW factory cafeterias and can be found in supermarkets and football (i.e., soccer) stadiums across Europe. It’s also given away to Volkswagen customers in that continent when they purchase a new VW.

If you’re like us, talk of the VW currywurst immediately gets those salivary glands running. So, can the desire for a delicious Volkswagen sausage be satiated? Where can one buy or find VW currywurst in the United States?
