Octopus - Munich Airport

One of the things we love to do when we travel is go to grocery stores. It helps us get a sense of the local culture. On our recent trip to Scandinavia we had a layover in Munich and visited a very nice grocery store inside the airport. I was surprised to see a package of octopus with green olives.
I don't think I have ever seen octopus for sale in a mainstream U.S. grocery store, perhaps in an Asian grocery store in the U.S., but even that would be rare. I was compelled to buy the fast-food octopus. 
It did not disappoint. It was soft, not rubbery, briny and very good, perhaps on par or even better than the octopus we had in Greece. We ate it, along with some cheese, Orangina Rouge and other tasty items, while sitting on a Europecar bench in the airport.
