It’s the comeback of the year: the original recipe currywurst, first served in 1973, is coming back to the Volkswagen menu. “What’s special about this sausage is that it’s not just pork. It’s actually nearly 40 percent beef,” explains Dietmar Schulz, Head of Food Production. When the mad cow crisis began in the early 2000s, Volkswagen changed its beloved original recipe. “We cut out the beef and produced the sausage using just pork,” says Schulz. But now it’s back to the way it used to be. And how does it taste? Six employees indulged us in a taste test. The conclusion? Employees are excited to see it back on their plates. “Starting on February 8, the original currywurst will be sold directly once a month,” says Dietmar Schulz. The sausage will also be available in the company restaurants at Volkswagen locations in Germany. “It won’t be available all the time, just every now and then,” says Schulz. Mark your calendars: it will debut on Thursday, February 14. And Volkswagen has the perfect sauce to go with it: Sauce Number One. “The Catering team has developed this sauce specially for the original currywurst,” says Schulz proudly.
