No I don't mean _those_ terrible cake-carrots; I mean real good quality "fruits" (apples, peaches, pears etc) which are meant to be eaten "as such" -- I don't remember having seen anything apart from the carrots at the Migros.

Most decent chocolatiers should have them.

Also near the Starbucks in Niederdorf (I think, we were there before Christmas, somewhere in the area, bought some, they even spoke Italian, which is great as my wife's German is limited to slogans from WW2 movies).

That's probably Carreda as well, they opened a second location in Niederdorf a year ago or so.
