If it's any help - I've never seen them on sale here. They're something we used to bring back from the U.K.

Around Christmastime I picked some up at the Globus in Lausanne, although I'm not sure if they are in stock year-round....

Re: Where can I find Carr's Water crackers in Lausanne?

Sorry, I do not know about Carr's (or much about Lausanne) BUT Coop has "Waterthins" crackers in their British selection, both at some store locations and (I just checked) available online.

Perhaps if you can't find the Carr's the other will do?

Re: Where can I find Carr's Water crackers in Lausanne?

I found some this evening at Globus felt like if I had found the holy grail when I saw them. I got funny stares from an old swiss lady when she saw me packing 4 boxes into my bag...LOL.

Re: Where can I find Carr's Water crackers in Lausanne?

They seem to be known as "water biscuits" in the UK and "water crackers" in the USA.
I didn't know they were based on ship's biscuits either!

They used to be made in Carr's biscuit factory in Carlisle (now McVities).

I get mine in Globus, too.

Re: Where can I find Carr's Water crackers in Lausanne?

I have Bath Fine Cheese Co Water crackers, Bath Ovals and a couple of other styles. Carrs water biscuits arrive in 2 weeks and I'll be putting them in my online shop straight away. They should be cheaper than Miglobus.

Re: Where can I find Carr's Water crackers in Lausanne?

I saw Carr's waterbiscuits in two different Co-ops in Geneva. They were in a section that had 'British' food (Pimm's, Carr's, HP sauce etc). Never seen anything like it in all my travels, especially a big place like Co-op.
