Going to Germany! What to eat there and to bring back?

I'll be studying abroad in Goettingen, Germany for 8 weeks. I'll also be travelling around the country on the weekends. What are must eats/drinks (aka beer)? I'm open to any suggestions! I'm a very adventurous eater and I want to try as much food as possible :)

Also, of course I'll be looking to take home food souvenirs (like I would buy any other kind!). What is worth to bring back? And is it legal? If not, any smuggling tips? (I'm half-joking)
