Discoveries at the Jungle Oktoberfest Edition: Hero Fruit Spreads and Maggi Seasoning and Soup Mixes
Oktoberfest has a rich history dating back to 1810, when Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Teresa of Sassonia-Hildburghausen. They invited all of the citizens of Munich to attend the celebration, which was held in the fields in front of the city gate. From that year on it became an annual celebration, which then evolved into the Oktoberfest that we know today.
Now, Oktoberfest is celebrated around the world. Coincidentally, Cincinnati actually hosts the second largest Oktoberfest second only to Munich itself! Since we have such a deep German heritage here in Cincinnati, we thought taking some time out this month to celebrate would not just fun and educational, but delicious, as well!

Did you know? Drinking at Oktoberfest can only commence when the master of ceremonies – the mayor of Munich – cracks open the first barrel of beer, proclaiming ‘O’ zapft is’ (‘It’s tapped!’)
Maggi - Seasoning and Soup Mixes
As ubiquitous as it is tasty, Maggi Seasoning can be found across the globe. Since the late 1800’s, Maggi’s now offers a variety of seasonings and incredibly popular dehydrated soup mixes (among other products). A true German classic!

Did you know? The lost and found office is a proverbial treasure chest. Last year 1056 passports, 520 wallets, 320 mobile phones, 300 bags and rucksacks, and 50 cameras – there were some more peculiar finds, such as two wedding-rings, a hearing-aid, a set of false teeth, a tombstone shaped like a pencil and a Segway.
