Anyway, that's a 5 CHF coin. Not 5 raps. Does that make it Ok?
No it doesn't because it isn't.

Around 2009 perhaps ducks
PS: Does it say "Sauron's toys" on the wrapper or am I imagining this?

There is this type of snack here that is called "De 5er und s'Weggli" that I had the chance to photograph (the 5 rappen and the type of bread name)... but I think Swiss bakeries need to start accept the modern age... if it would be a real gold coin, it would be alright however.
So you think it is modern to be a prude? You must be fresh off the boat from the states. Or literally understand the term ass backwards.

invalid comment in new york i can count quite a few erotic bakeries that have been around for years and i'm pretty sure the penis pasta and other novelty items i've seen in stores isn't limited to ny-focus man ... personally, if i saw this item in my local bakery, i would be buying a dozen- and give them to my friends, i think they're cute

I strongly suppose that by Dä Feufer und's Weggli what is meant is CHF 5 Piece

well, it is similar to...

Except that it's in reverse direction. Always remember: exit only
That's a rather limited point of view.

I don't think so.

a) "Feufer" or "Füfer" in Swiss German always refers to the 5 Rappen/cents coin. The CHF 5 coin is called "Füfliber".
b) It wouldn't make sense anyway. While there was a time when the price of a Weggli was at or around CHF 0.05 we haven't seen Weggli costing CHF 5.00 (yet).

Sure. As a Weggli in the1960ies was around for 20 Rappen. But People have to adapt. Starbucks will sell a pack of two Weggli and two Püürli for CHF 5.-- shortly
