Know your food & drink

I’ve noticed that my Tuesday Teaser is sometimes a little too easy. So today I decided to up the ante (einen drauf setzen). This teaser comes in two parts.

2) Match the English ‘food’ word at the bottom with the correct English phrase (1-10)

One thought on “Know your food & drink

“That’s why the cookie crumbles” – so lovely! I’ve never heard of this before but as a Cookie Monster I simply have to like it.

Just a little remark: it’s “nicht wasserdicht sein” since the English equivalent denies the argument’s impermeability.
