Where can I buy VW currywurst in the US?

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.
