Extrawurst

Some sausages taste extra good!

There may be more and more vegetarians in the land of schnitzel and beer, but Germans do still love sausage, or Wurst to be exact. It's no surprise then they also love a bit of Extrawurst - but not served up on their plates. In Austria, Extrawurst is actually a type of sausage, but in Germany it's a special privilege. For example, if a boss allows one employee to come in extra late to work or take longer lunches without a reprimand, in German you'd say that person gets an Extrawurst. And there's no doubt that for one person at least, it "tastes" pretty good too!
