Re: What food should I bring from UK to Zurich

Hi there - I have recently found myself doing a bit of import and export trade too.

The most popular imports ain order are TBags of the Tetley/PG Tips one cup variety - in the 400 catering packs, Birds Custard Powder, self raising flour, Mr Sheen leather wipes, Cadburys Buttons, Bonjela, and vegetarian haggis. My most unusual request was Boots Imedeen Age Resist Capsules!!!

Most popular exports are Fondue, fondue, fondue, Rosti and Cailler chocolate and the little Basler cake/biscuits. Mmmmm Mmmm Mmmmm.

How much do I miss Boots - the chemist/superstore, rather the the leather shoes.

Have fun exploring the Swiss supermarkets - I love it.

Catriona

Re: What food should I bring from UK to Zurich

OK guys,
My stuff is being shipped next week, to be delivered the week after. Anybody want anything bringing for them, just PM me. As long as it's legal and non-perishable and not hideously expensive. I expect to be paid in alcohol!

That really is so nice of you, I am afraid if I start thinking what I would want I may never stop...! Hope the move goes well!!
