Weetabix

Apparently, Weetabix took over from Conflakes as the best selling cereal (perhaps in UK only, not sure).

Anyway, where in Zurich can I find a box of 48+ Weetabix? I managed to find a 24 box once, but can't even remember where I got that now. At the moment I have to buy them in 12s, which doesn't even last a full week. Cornflakes are everywhere.

kfc.

Re: Weetabix

Re: Weetabix

Migros sell Weetabix. 48 packs are too greedy for the Swiss market. Anyone want to know about Marmite?

I think the OP mentioned 12s and stated that a 24 pack was once sighted

Re: Weetabix

Yes, I love the Britshop! Couldn't find Weetabix on there, so I checked out my other favorite online shop where I found Vitabrits (I like both Vitabrits and Weetabix) at the www.aussieshop.ch

(and TimTams, and Australian versions of Cadbury chocolates and loads of other goodies).

Re: Weetabix

Thanks everyone for your replies. I was really hoping to find 48+ weetabix, but I have been meaning to shop from migros online for ages, so maybe I will do that and bulk buy! Maybe then they will get the message.

I'm only me, but if I were a family of two children, all eating weetabix, a box of 12 wouldn't even see you through for more than a day! It was weird, though, seeing that box of 24 designed to be read vertically rather than horizontally as in the UK (although I suppose the horizontal design is actually the weirder design).

Re: Weetabix
