'Rich Tea' and 'Digestive' Biscuit alternatives

Does anyone know of any locally available alternatives for Rich tea or Digestive biscuits? I'm looking for some similar products available in the Swiss supermarket ranges and not specialist shops where I could buy specially imported Uk products. They are for recipes etc so fairly similar is good enough.

They sell McVities digestives in Coop, for a price, but I don't know of a local version.

The biscuit bits of Pick Me Up are quite Rich Tea like, so there might well be a chocolateless version. If you're making something that needs chocolate too, then maybe you could disassemble them.

McV. digestives can be found in Coop.

However an alternative I've found is Hafer (oats) biscuits from Migros - long, round, red pack.

Petit Buerre may be an alternative to rich tea.
