Let us know if they get Tim Tams in too! I occasionally shop there when daughter one is having her teeth wrangled.

Proper mustard has been available for a while now, I'm interested to hear Branston pickle is too now.

That particular branch is a great source of all things weird and wonderful. Managed to pick up my OH's favourite Mrs. Ball's South African relish there last summer.

They've had all that stuff in the larger COOPs for a few years already. We even have it in Neuchâtel.
They have TimTams in our COOP too.

Always or sometimes on the Tim Tams? I’ve seen them in Coop at Affoltern aA and Sihlcity occasionally but only the basic range and only until sold out.

Re: Bisto, Paxo & Marmite at the Coop

Yes, has been there forever.

Coop Stadelhofen does have a very large selection of English - as well as other national goods.

Even if you're looking for a PIMMS, Bovril, stuffing mix, brown sauce, scone mix, or an IPA etc. it's there.

They always have them here but I have no idea which ones they are. I've never tried them and only noticed them because an Australian friend raved about them.

There are also several online suppliers, such as Britshop.ch and Jim's English shop. I don't know how prices compare but the range of products is quite extensive.

Re: Bisto, Paxo & Marmite at the Coop

Tim Tams are an Australian delicacy, and occasionally are great comfort for my children. Neuchatel is a day trip for us, but it could be worth it for Tim Tams. Fantastic, thanks Belgianmum.

You don't have to go as far as Neuchatel, Robbi - just out to the wilds of Ausserschwyz.

Bettio in the Seedamm Center in Pfäffikon SZ usually carry them; last time I looked they had several flavors.

(I'll likely stop by on there on Saturday and will report back...)

There's also a British Cheese Centre in Zurich, but they also deliver by post:

https://britishcheese.ch/

They have an amazing selection and worth a look.

For such a tiny place, Bettio has almost everything. Even though we've moved away from anywhere near there, if my wife is in the area, she always manages to get to Bettio's.

Otto’s in Baar were selling traditional milk choc Tim Tams at CHF2.50 a packet a couple of weeks ago. Thought it was a pricing error so hoovered up 10 packs...

Ditto Baselland.

The COOP mincemeat (for mince pies) is cheaper than at the Anglican Bazaar.
