Every year at Thanksgiving, my grandma makes something called "Pink Stuff." It's a dessert-y "salad" made with strawberries, whipped cream, marshmallows, and gelatin (note the quotation marks around the word "salad"). We call it Pink Stuff because it is stuff that is pink. Pretty straightforward, right?
I have to assume that the people naming the traditional German foods on this list didn't necessarily use the same straightforward logic, though. At least, I hope they didn't. Otherwise, I have some pretty strong words for whoever named "dead grandma."
