Season 3, Episode 10. It's the episode no one wanted, that no one needed - yet here it is! It's Snacks & Toilets!
In the first half of the episode, we discuss snacks. What German snacks have we fallen in love with? How did our snacking habits change after moving to Germany? And what the heck is up with Erdnuss Flips? We also dive into the snacks we miss the most from home, and reminisce about the days of eating entire family-sized bags of Cool Ranch Doritos.
Then comes part two: toilets. Have you encountered the elusive German toilet phenomenon, the poop shelf? We dish out the pros and cons of the strange design, then we give some well-deserved hate to our home country, USA, for having public bathroom doors that have cracks large enough to see people through. Yuck. We get into different flushing mechanisms, the variety of toilets around the globe, and our opinions on how toilets can best strike the balance between hygienic and environmental.
