My German is actually rather basic, but it's enough to buy a beer and sausage with!

It looks like a cup of frothy coffee with bits in it (the 1st 1, that is). Cappuccino with a sparse sprinkling of choccy, maybe?

I had an excellent xmas, thanks Eth.

This is not a coffee-based beverage of any sort, nor is there any addition of choccy flakes.

BUT - it is edible (in the real sense of food).

Noone, except all those who live in Germany or are familiar with German cuisine? [;)]

No, it is not unique to Germany.

It is known in many European countries, and I'm sure that there are also equivalents in both Eastern and American gastronomy.

OK - there were no guesses over the last 48 hrs, so here is a clue. This edible thing is in its natural state, prior to any cooking or cleaning process.

It is technically a sort of fruit, I suppose - it's the fruiting body of something. You should be just about there!
