a guide To our sausage sizes & lengths

As with any food product, the measurements of our sausages and other Authentic German foods are approximations based on the averages of any given line. Though we aim for uniformity, some sausages may come out longer or shorter, skinnier or fatter from pack to pack (and sometimes even within a pack).

Some of our producers in Germany concentrate on achieving an accurate set weight with only approximate sizes, while others aim for an exact size (say, all sausages will be 28cm or over) and label when there is a slight variance in the weight. Though some are made with the precision engineering of Volkswagen (like the VW Currywurst), some are crafted lovingly by hand (like the Vienna Beef Mini Franks). Sausage making is a mixture between art and science in this respect.

Please note that most of our sausages will arrive at your door frozen. You will find that once they are out of their packaging and thoroughly defrosted, they get larger. Once they’re cooked through, they’ll get even larger still (the meat swelling is one of the signs that they’re hot through). Below you can find a few examples of the weights and sizes you can expect from our sausages.
