Re: help stop the nonsense Acqua Panna and S. Pellegrino

Picked up some of this last night at Denner.

Seriously good, and made down the road (Stabio, across the street from where my wife lived when we met).

Going to pop in today at noon and clear out the rest of their stock!

Re: help stop the nonsense Acqua Panna and S. Pellegrino

OP, i think the non-sense is just in your request.
you should boicot the restaurant for charging these prices and not the producer.
Half a liter of s.pellegrino does not cost 5 euro all around the world, so you should blame the owner of the place where you go for dinner.
I assume you do not raise your eyebrow when they charge 20 chf for prosciutto e melone or do you want to stop the import of cantaloup too?

If you go to an Italian restaurant in Switzerland and simply ask for water you will be served an Italian water being either Acqua Panna or S. Pellegrino and end up paying 7.50 Sfr for water!. Paying 7.50 Sfr for water can make you feel in the range between a bit uncomfortable to totally annoyed.

Separate from paying 7.50 Sfr for Italian water in Switzerland! think big trucks full of freaking water driving from e.g. Milan to Zurich every day ... how much nonsense is this?

Help stop the nonsense and refuse to take Italian water in Italian restaurants in Switzerland!

You really do write crap .... you asked for water and thats what you got... if you asked for tap water thats what you would have got..

its like going to a car dealer and saying " i want a car" with no other information.

Re: help stop the nonsense Acqua Panna and S. Pellegrino

Interesting topic... My swiss GF was asthonished when we were in a restaurant together in Basel and I asked for tap water and we weren't charged. She had never heard of that before in Switzerland. She used to always buy the bottled water.. Crazy

I'm astonished too. I've been charged for tap water more than once in Basel. They underestimate how stubborn I am. For those 3-4 CHF I now come close to refusing to eat out in any restaurant in Basel (or Zurich - elsewhere is better.)

Re: help stop the nonsense Acqua Panna and S. Pellegrino

A while ago I've read an article that the environmental burden of some Italian mineral waters like San Pelegrino is actually smaller then the one of many Swiss waters. The reason given was, that the Swiss waters where delivered all the way from the bottling facility in the mountains by trucks, while the Italian waters came to Switzerland by train.

If you look at this map. You see, that S.Pelegrino is actually bottled quite close to the Swiss border. Thus the delivery distance to Zurich is most likely shorter then for some Swiss waters.

But then again you get San Pelligrino all over the world, that ruins the eco-balance.

Just out of interest - how much of the Chf7.50 would you estimate is in the cost of the water? And the transport?

(For you to do some maths - the truck will hold about 50 000 bottle of water)

The price isn't anything to do with the cost. If you don't want to buy it, then don't
Separate from the math and the cost, which btw is not the point of this OP. A trunk carrying water traveling across country borders bringing water to Switzerland is one big nonsense. But don't worry, I don't mind spoiling the solution of this complicated quiz for you guys.

You may alternatively want to ask to get the pizza to be delivered from Roma, but then what's the point? heck! take your private jet and land in Roma for lunch instead.

ROFL ... my intellect

I wholeheartedly recommend this book for you robbydumb "AP English Language and Composition For Dummies" http://www.amazon.com/English-Langua...on+for+dummies

You will really enjoy it, especially the pop-up pictures and multiple-choice questions.

So you don't eat bananas then? Or rice? Or orange juice? Or wear cotton clothes?

You need to import stuff that you can't get here. You can't get San Pelligrino here. So you need to import it
