(Food) What are you addicted to in CH?

For me, it's Ovomaltine cookies and St Agur cheese:

I'm rather partial to Denner's "Primess Florentins aux Amandes". Lovely crispy chewy chocolatey nutty biscuity delights.

It's probably a good thing that I'm not so close to a late night Denner any more.

In France I buy the creamed Saint Argur cheese, eat it with a spoon, luverly..

Ach, mine is Lemon-Chilli corn chips from Aldi. Luckily I don't go there often but when I do I buy just one pack - to scratch that spot. Or the sea salt & vinegar one, which is not always in stock. In Migros, it's the wasabe chips - I try not to go near that shelf.

Re: (Food) What are you addicted to in CH?

Strangely it is neither the cheese nor the chocolates that I gorge on during my Swiss trip, but the charcuterie, above all the Saucisson vaudois:

Jesus, I go nuts for rum balls. I loved them back home, here they are even better.

I love tartines au fromage, can eat those every day. Gruyer, lovely comfort food, replacement therapy for all those nice Wursts I had to leave home. Raclette, fondue. After we got a raclette machine, it was on for a week, ugh.

Then, I am weaning myself off Pannetonne, since the last one I had was dry. I am still partial to them, though, hard to dislike. I have craving for that everyday, and I am not preggo.

Asparagus, I thought I would love it, everyone talks so highly about it..so I tried and nada. The pee smells so bad, had a rough time adjusting.

Ikea fish paste and their raspberry tart.

Indeed - they're a perfect cross between a cake, a biscuit and a truffle. Amazing!

I like dry better! Wait for it to go stale and then dip into espresso.

Purchase baby ones (fresh) and dunk into boiling water for 2 minutes. Then remove and dunk into ice cold water to refresh. Serve just warm with either a tangy jerez wine vinegarette or a home made mayo (not Thomy please).

See, where I am from only people with no teeth actually dip pastries/croissants into coffee or tea. I can't make myself. I'd start looking for my fake teeth next...really.

I should give asperge a chance, shouldn't I. Is there anything one can do to beat that toilet reek afterwards, though?
