Looking for sunflower seeds (in shell) in Basel

Hello everyone!

Does anyone know of any places that sell sunflower seeds that are still in the shell and flavored? I've looked in Coop and Migros but could only find the seeds out of the shell. They are a popular snack in America (and kind of addicting) but maybe it's not something that's sold in Switzerland. Here's a link to what I'm looking for: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_s...=1YITFZECWJGS1

Thank you!

I also love flavored sunflower seeds, unfortunately I was only able to find regular salted sunflower seeds in a shell, you can usually find them at most Turkish shops.

Yes, never been there myself but I just googled it free of charge.
Breisacherstrasse 92, 4057 Basel

Also, why don't you hop on a tram and head across the border, there is a large Turkish shop not too far from Marktkauf with some excellent Turkish restaurants nearby, where you can get a large platter platter of grilled meat for next to nothing.

Turkish Supermarket Weil am Rhein, http://www.narli-market.de/: Hauptstraße 411, 79576 Weil am Rhein, Germany

Turkish Grillhouse Weil am Rhein, https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaura...rttemberg.html : Hauptstraße 276, 79576 Weil am Rhein, Germany (make sure you try the goat soup and the mixed grilled platter...bring a large appetite as they don't play around with portions)

Re: Looking for sunflower seeds (in shell) in Basel

The ones I bought here or Germany don't taste fresh at all, and the shell is very hard. Might have been a bad batch, but I gave up trying. I found the best in Chisinau, Moldova.

Ah yes, see OP, Moldova is your answer. Please let me know if you find any ranch-flavored ones. Thanks!

Re: Looking for sunflower seeds (in shell) in Basel

Have you tried any Asian or Chinese food store? Because in China it is also a popular snack and I can find it in the Chinese store in Zurich, not sure whether there is one in Basle.

I was actually able to find some at a larger Migros the other day in the snack and chip aisle. They only have the salted kind but at least it's something!

Depends from where.

From the EU, no problem, but from the US and other non-EU, yes.

BTDT.

You will find that there isn't anything like the kind I used to chew on at baseball games in the US here. Sorry to disappoint you...time to arrange for some nice care packages!
