Squash/Juice

Hi all,

Does anyone know whether you can get the equivalent of a bottle of sugar free squash out here?
Many of the supermarkets close by (Ouchy region of Lausanne) sell Sirop, but from what I can gather it's absolutely tanked with sugar. Do the Swiss have an alternative?

Thanks!

Re: Squash/Juice

The Bider & Tanner and Orell-Füssli bookshops in Basel and ZH respectively stock Robinson's squash (and Ribena too, if that's your thing). I am not sure if they'll mail it to your part of the world though.

Re: Squash/Juice

Just about all squashes and syrups contain lots of sugar to preserve the fruit juice. You could either buy fresh fruit juice, or squeeze your own, adding water.

Keeping things simple - both Migros and COOP do sugar-free/reduced sugar sirops.

Re: Squash/Juice

I've got a sugar free syrup ...... but it blew off in the wind, and now I'm back to a comb over.

Hi, you can get Ribena in the Coop in the Leman Centre in Crissier (they have a small section of British foods - it's opposite the tins of tuna and jars of mayonaise and mustard).
Alternatively, go to Jims in Gland (about 30 mins drive) for a wide range of British supplies: http://www.jims-british-market.com/?page_id=8
