Swiss kids' birthday snack - chocolate in bread?

When I moved here a few years ago, a Swiss girl I was introduced to showed me a treat she said school kids would have on their birthday. It was a white roll (maybe a weggli??) with some sort of chocolate bar stuck through the middle. Does anyone know what that's called/what kind of chocolate bar it was? I have a hunch it might have been a Ragusa...

The breads I've seen with chocolate bars had Branche Cailler in them.

You can buy Cailler schoggigipfeli. They are just yummy. Available at most train stations and Coop in the open bred section.

Re: Swiss kids' birthday snack - chocolate in bread?

Don't know about it being a birthday treat, though.
The idea of bread and chocky, is a carb. and calorie kids pick-me-up, used to give them a boost for z'nuni and z'vieri, to get them through to the next meal (hence the name 'Pausemaus' - the chocky in a roll is known as a maus, to be eaten during the morning pause/break).

Teachers nowadays would probably send the snack home with a stern note about the dangers of empty calories, rotten teeth and a general decline in society, along with a picture diagram of "suitable" foods for the z'nuni pack.

Party poopers.

When the kids eat their z'nuni in the playground, the teachers haven't got a clue of what they're eating ........ just relying on their start of school year rules, reg., and advice book.

They don't here in Suisse Romande but in Baselland, the kids had to eat Z'Nuni in class in circle time and the teacher would go around the class supposedly playing a game of guessing what was in their Z'nuni box, but effectively patrolling exactly what was in there. We only once transgressed with a hazelnut yoghurt.

Either a Weggli or a Semmeli plus Schoggistängeli (Branche Cailler or similiar).

Re: Swiss kids' birthday snack - chocolate in bread?

Nowadays it's probably a carrot along with some sprouts (in school, that is)

Kids must be looking forward to their zvieri nowadays

Re: Swiss kids' birthday snack - chocolate in bread?

this is a typical swiss 'snack' as the others said.
on another note, every kid grows up with it. I took a friend of mine for a birthday outing (she turned 31) and as a surprise took a weggli and a shoggi stengeli with me for our zvieri. She was absolutely delighted and loved feeling back to the 'young days' etc so it's good for older aged swiss too
