In German Rheinhessen, common dialect term (after snack = small meal) for the rustic meal in the vineyard, which was taken at noon (formerly indicated by the church tower bell) by the vineyard workers. The food was brought by the winegrower in a basket with a handle and traditionally consisted of home-made sausage (liver sausage, black pudding, rind stomach), jacket potatoes (spring men) and soft cheese, which were spread out on a tablecloth on the ground.
