    Melba-toast!

  • these are wonderful!

  • NapoleonSolo

    Maybe “Zwieback” would be a translation

  • Anja

    we’d probably call it the same but it’s “thin, hard toast”. “dünner, harter Toast”.

  • MELBA TOAST in german is KNÄCKEBROT. 🙂

    • Kyle

      That’s awesome, they should just change the name completely to “KNÄCKEBROT”.

    • Barbara

      That’s Swedish

  • hnns

    but in this case it just looks like a regular ‘Graubrot’…

  • NapoleonSolo

    yeah typical graubrot….

  • Emily

    i think is you said ‘gebranntes Brot (von melba)’ they might understand that it was toast (burned bread) but i have no idea what they would think about the ‘von melba’ bit…
