Looking for the South African classics

Hello, anybody know where to buy the Saffer classics between Zurich and Schaffhaussen? I'm talking about:
Biltong
Boerewors
Mrs Balls
Milo
Any South African chips.
You know what I'm talking about :-)

Some local butchers make Knaberli - which is pretty similar.

Re: Looking for the South African classics

Not quite between ZH and SH but near ZH in Waedenswil is wine shop Kapweine that sells a lot of ZA wines and also limited range of food items - incl. boerewors, biltong etc.

Re: Looking for the South African classics

Biltong

Boerewors

>> Some butchers in Switzerland make and deliver. Google's your friend.

Mrs Balls

>> Manor sells Mrs Balls (or at least my local one does) with some other foreign food products.

Milo

>> Seen it for sale in Indian / Asian stores. Ovomaltine is the Swiss version, although I think Milo is better.

Any South African chips.

>> Good luck with that. Since you are in Schaffhausen, you might be able to order from German / UK South African shops and collect in Germany.
