During a trip to my favorite local purveyor of German foods, Geiers Sausage Kitchen, I came across this marzipan curiosity. I didn’t know what it meant, but I had to buy one. My brother-in-law is from Switzerland and is able to shed light on all things European. He recalled the Geldsheisser as a German term for someone who seems to have money that comes from thin air. We did a internet search that confirmed our suspicions. Americanized, the term would be Gold Shitter. I think that it would be fair to say that in our current economic downturn we all know at least one Geldsheisser.
