Chocolate Covered Raisins
 
Surprised not to find a dedicated chocolate thread but nevertheless I have long been on the hunt for chocolate covered raisins (Preferably milk chocolate) en Suisse.

With all the wonderful chocolate combinations and artisanal items you can find here, I continue to be a bit let down that I can't find these anywhere. On a recent trip to Amsterdam I was lucky enough to find some and they were somewhat artisanal quality and very good - I will be restocking in the near future but curious if anyone has come across these delightful treats anywhere

Of course, in the meantime I am pleased to have discovered something not to far off from my goal in these new items from Lindt

Those Lindt balls are a bit too sweet, they do a bunch of fruit flavors now. I am hooked on chocolate covered almonds, not raisins.

But really good chocolate covered raisins are carried by Lidl, have a look there..

I think I've seen them in Lollipop pick n mix sweet shops, or it could also have been the Faller pick n mix shop in Mulhouse :confused:

Now you've done it, I haven't had chocolate covered raisins in years and now I want some...

(Living with the world's most accomplished canine countersurfing thief, chocolate + raisins = trip to the Tierspital. Both are banned in my house.)

Nonetheless, I've seen them several places here. You can find them in a 'Dragees' mix, similar to a bridge mix, at Coop, Migros, Aldi, Lidl. I have also seen a chocolate raisins only (IIRC) Fine Foods version at Coop. I'm pretty sure I've seen something similar at Manor Foods, possibly also Globus.

Keep your eyes peeled, they can be found...

If I have to spend 10 CHF on some "fine food" and then employ a Swiss to separate the raisins from the other stuff in my dragee mix could I also drive to the Kauflands across the border and pick up a pack of milk chocolate covered raisins for 1 EUR instead.

I will look again @melloncollie but I have looked before and never found them at Coop, Manor & Migros. I will look at Aldi & Lidl but the truth is that I am not interested in the marketed versions like Raisinettes but something artisanal owing to the great chocolate we have here en Suisse. Globus, nice idea - not sure I have really looked there carefully

The alternative of course is to make our own. I did similar with chocolate chip cookies and now we make the best version of cc cookies I've ever had the pleasure to eat - all about the ingredients!

OK you'd probably never voluntarily enter that shop otherwise, but the candy store "Lollipop" has chocolate-covered raisins (both milk and dark), as well as almonds and hazelnuts and other things. Probably also not exactly high-end, but why not give it a try...

They have a few stores across Switzerland, one e.g. in Basel train station, another one in Niederdorf Zurich.

They might also have them at the Läderach chocolate stores, though I'm not sure.

We get ours straight from the local source, in the farmer's meadows just up the road. Swiss quality and for once, very reasonably priced (in fact, the farmer doesn't seem to mind if we help ourselves to as much as we like).

At one point Migros used to sell chocolate covered coffee beans. That was bliss!

And Migros sells mixed packs of chocolate covered hazelnuts, almonds and raisins. Might be worth a try?

Volg has some Volg branded chocolate covered something. Not sure if it is raisins or nuts.
