Der Käseigel

Today in German Words Explained we explain the word “Käseigel“.

The Käseigel was popular at parties on the 60s and 70s. Fruit, cheese and even vegetables are placed on cocktail sticks and stick into a large fruit, such as a melon, similar to the way that cheese and pineapple are served.

The form given by placing the sticks in the melon resembles a hedgehog or Igel, hence the name Käseigel.

The word Käseigel is now considered threatened in German, as it is used so seldomly.
