Running low on Ribena...

My little boy has become a big fan of Ribena after I ferried in a big bottle last month from the UK, now due to the arrival of summer the consumption has increased tenfold and I am looking at a very low level to last just a few more days.

I am not due to go back the UK for a while so I was wondering if anyone knows where in Switzerland one can find original UK import Ribena?

The Geant in St. Louis sells it too, but pricey!

Re: Running low on Ribena...

I personally can't tell the difference between Ribena and coop brand blackcurrant syrup - and my kids certainly can't (although they do call it "ribena" and not "cassis sirup". I'd try the local version on your kid first before forking out for super expensive brands.

Gosh I can tell the difference between UK cordials and any sort of European syrups, they're just not the same. I really miss vimto and orange squash. Shame they're so heavy I really can't get visitors to bring them over.
