My Magic Mud World Tour: 3rd Stop – Germany

Saturday, February 18, 2017 | By My Magic Mud

In February 2017, we flew our entire family from the USA leg of our tour to Nuremberg, Germany, to launch our product line, exhibit at a trade fair, and meet our distributors in person.

Germany is beautiful, sophisticated, and absolutely wonderful for the spirit. Our family totally thrived there, but man was it cold! Us Texans weren’t used this but that’s what we get for being in Central Europe in winter.

We exhibited at a huge trade fair and the European community completely embraced our brand. We noticed the sensibilities in Europe are a bit different than Australia and the USA, so we had to adapt our sales pitch and marketing strategy right there on the spot.

Our brand was even covered in the Nuremberg Zeitung, and we’ve included a photo of the newspaper clipping.

We stayed in Nuremberg for 2 weeks. We also hit Berlin, Heidelberg Castle, and Munich for the evening.

Wonderful Moment for Our 7 Year old

Azzy and this street performer in Nurember connected so deeply.

Azzy, our 7 year old, and a street performer in Nuremberg connected so deeply, that the guy promised they would see each other again. A week later we were walking in the city center, and we ran into this guy again and he told Azzy he was so happy to see him and made these huge bubbles for Azzy out of this little device he created. This man’s voice sounded exactly like Robin Williams, it was so sweet. Azzy told him he was leaving to go to another country and the guy told him to have a wonderful journey and hugged Azzy, he even said he loved him in this really kind accent. While Azzy and I were walking away, I told him he’d probably never see that man again, and further along that walk, Azzy looked really beaten up, and when I asked what was wrong, tears started falling down his face and he said that he “was just so sad he’d never see that man again because he was his real friend, and friends should stay in contact.” I told him that it’s possible that the last time you say goodbye to anyone, even people you see everyday, that it *could* be the last time but possibly not, and that we always need to enjoy the time we have with each other because you just never know. I told Azzy it was possible he’d see him again, but that it was most important to just never forget him, and to be happy with the fact we had a chance to meet him. If we never flew to Germany, he wouldn’t have known he existed. He cheered up and completely understood. It was such a powerful moment. It’s strange how people can instantly be so connected, they were separated by generations, language, and thousands of miles… We’re off to Prague tomorrow.

Watch Tower at Nuremberg Castle. Strategic Point of The Holy Roman Empire

What an incredible day! We went to a farmers market that has been there for 400 years. We walked up a beautiful steep cobblestone street to the castle here in Nuremberg. We climbed a tall tower that overlooked the whole city.
I’m so proud of Azzy for walking all that way, of Allie for climbing the tall tower even though she’s afraid of heights, of Mikey for being an amazing help with his brothers, and of Justin for getting our family to Germany so that we can have these incredible experiences.

To the right, you’ll see a picture of a street vendor our family connected with in this 400 year old marketplace. We were so proud of Azzy for trying new foods and for keeping a smile on his face while showing his gratitude.

Below, is a picture of the watch tower that our family had to scale. It was pretty intimidating with small children, but we all made it. So happy we made this trip. From what we understand, Nuremberg Castle is the strongest castle fortification in all of Central Europe.

Calling all Wine Enthusiasts

This is the world’s largest wine barrel. It hold 55,000 gallons of wine. While it’s currently empty it’s been filled and emptied 4 times.
It’s located in the wine cellar at Heidelberg Castle. We thought the first wine barrel was the big one then we turned the corner into the next room. ? This wine barrel was made from 32 oak trees.

World’s Largest Wine Barrel. Heidelberg Castle.

The daily consumption of wine in the 1600s was 500 gallons per day. Prince Fredrick IV tried to passed a “moderation law” which would limit wine consumption to 7 glasses per person… per meal. Hahahaha

What People Are Saying
  • “I absolutely love their products! I have been on a journey of cleaning out all toxic products in my life because of the things I found that can cause issues in your body with your hormones. I was so glad that these products use clean and safe ingredients for my entire family! I can confidently use this tooth paste and know that it is not adding toxins into my body.

  • “Our household has been using the My Magic Mud, Activated Charcoal Oral Rinse( Alcohol Free) for about 2 weeks now. When we first got it and opened it, I have to say the smell was extremely strong but when you rinse with it, it’s not as strong as it smells. I love how clean my mouth feels after using this product. I don’t typically use mouth wash because I just don’t like the taste of them. With the My Magic Mud, the taste is so smooth it doesn’t bother me. I recommend this product to anyone looking for a new mouth rinse.

  • “I’ve been using it for a year and I’ve tried the wintergreen and spearmint but I would have to say peppermint is my favourite because of how the peppermint feels. It is also super natural and safe that I put it on my hives that I had and they went away and felt instantly better after I put it on! I love this product so much :)

  • “Received some at the Natural Products Expo; really love it and came looking for a Cyber Monday Deal. All I want for Christmas is a water filter and this toothpaste! For some reason, it makes me enjoy brushing my teeth. I'm slowly switching out all toxic products in my household, and am very happy with the ingredients (and results) of Magic Mud. I like the paste when I'm short on time, and the powder for a deep clean. One quick wipe will do the trick for keeping your sink clean - 10 seconds tops. Don't use it for your first time while you're running late for work though

  • “I love MAGIC MUD! I've been using it for the past few years and I will not be going back to anything else. I began using Magic Mud because I was getting burns on the corners of my mouth from regular toothpaste. I actually bought some at the New Braunfels farmers market the first time and was completely sold by my second use. I'm so proud to use a local product too.

  • “I'd been curious about/following this page for months, but I'd found it right after I bought a more expensive (almost double the price!) whitening toothpaste. I was lucky enough to win a tube of the paste right around Thanksgiving. The customer service was incredible, and shipping was super-fast! I noticed a difference immediately: within the first two weeks, it had outperformed the more expensive paste - without tooth sensitivity!! I just bought the polish too, because I figure it's probably a great boost - and I intend to be a long-term customer. Thank you for making this product!! I'm already smiling more, and I love that my nephews are creeped out/fascinated by it

  • “Love the name, love the packaging, love the flavor, love the clean-feeling teeth, but more than anything i just love the dirty grimy black n' nasty "sludgemouth" i get when using this glorious product. sure it might stain the ol' kitchin sink a little bit but a little desecration and blasphemy never hurt anybody amirite??? After being prescribed/pushed/recommended "extra-strength extra-fluoride prescription toothpaste [clinpro 5000]" from my dentist, i proudly and brazenly hucked that abominable tube of sorry toothlube away forever once i picked up a ripe slice of this unholy magma I recommend the motherlovin' heck out of this abzu-lutely lifechanging product

  • “My Magic Mud is the most natural dentifrice on the market. The product is full of surprises as it both cleans your teeth and makes them whiter. Imagine using a black toothpaste to make your teeth SPARKLE.

    Donald Newman, DDS
  • “I am a Biological Dentist and “My Magic Mud” is a product I use being that it is 100% all natural, improves your oral health and makes your teeth brighter and whiter.

    Dr. Merrily M. Sandford, DDS
