Bought bockwurst from GermanDeli a year ago and they were delicious. Just like the ones from my childhood. I was so excited to order them again . Bought these and I was very disappointed. They were tasteless. Maybe they're not the same brand that I bought last year, I don't know. Now I'm stuck with 4 more packages. BUMMER!!!
S&W Weisswurst (Bockwurst) 4-Link Pack approx. 12oz reviews
OK so you are a Bavarian and you got your critique ”off your chest." I hope you feel better. Do you have an opinion about the product itself? Did you eat some? That's what the star rating is for.
I've had these, prepared them in the traditional way, and they are as good as anything you can buy mail-order. Dotzumi left out the purist Bavarian tradition that they must only be eaten right after they are made, early in the morning. To get to that level of perfection, dear reader, add the cost of the trip to the Fatherland to the price of your sausages. Short of that, these will do just fine.
15min in a pot of water just below boiling. Serve in the pot. Usually eaten with Bavarian sweet mustard.

Would you shape hamburger meat into a sausage/wiener shape, then put it on a hot dog bun and call that a hot dog ? No, no, no. Is that edible, yes, but it is not a hotdog.
Would you take a beautiful prime rib and instead of roasting it, slice it into individual slices and fry it ? Certainly not what one wants when ordering prime rib.
Putting a Weisswurst on the grill is a huge sin to a Bavarian. Buy bratwurst for the grill. Lots of types of Bratwurst to choose from, but never, ever, ever Weisswurst !
Wrong for a German deli to give bad directions. Also, do not put Weisswurst into boiling water and cook. Boil water, take it off heat/burner, then place the Weisswurst into the water, put lid on top and let steep (never boil or they will bust)) for 15 minutes. Then you peel off casing and eat with mustard. They are served in the pot and always a pair (2 connected) per person.
Again. Select one of the many types of brats for the grrill or to fry.
The photo is Weisswurst not a Bockwurst.
Would be like showing a picture of an unsliced salami and in parenthesis saying balogna.
Thank you for allowing this Bavarian to get it off her chest !
Very good flavor for a weisswurst that is made in the U.S.A. It will definitely hold me over until I return to germany this year.
The taste of this BOCKWURST is not too bad, but it is not a real Weisswurst a la Munich! Please impoort ZIMMERMANN's Weisswurst in cans - there are real Weisswurst and delicious! And they habe not to be frozen...!TO: MICHAEL LEINERT from the staff at GERMANDELI:The FDA and USDA do not currently permit the importation of Zimmermann's products to the USA.
I would suggest to have the sausages at room temperature and then put them into boiling water. Turn off the heat under the pan and just let them heat thru. This way, you avoid them splitting open.
Bockwurst is NOT Weisswurst (which is very Bayerissh) & though similarly cooked, is eaten after removing the skin. Bockwurst, like Frankfurters, should NEVER be boiled (they will split, lose taste & consistency) Bring a large pot of water to the boil, put in the (AT ROOM TEMP) Bocks /Franks, cover & immediately remove from heat...Franks 10mins, Bocks 15mins. Remove, let dry & serve with Kraut, Potato Salad or whatever
These are absolutely wonderful.
