You can buy light brown sugar - it's just dark brown sugar with less molasses.

I use demerara sugar instead. It depends on the recipe and taste preferences.
I think Aldi has Demerara and the prices are OK. Coop has a few types but more expensive..

Stores historically tended to sell what was used by the local population.

If we take brown sugar as an example it doesn’t really figure in traditional Swiss recipes so they would have no real need to sell it here whereas in Sweden brown sugar is used in traditional bakes.

It’s only really since more people started moving to other countries to live that stores have started broadening their offering to include more international stuff in order to cater for their clientele.

Well, I got all excited seeing Jacob's Cream Crackers mentioned, as I am perpetually looking for these in Switzerland.

Larger Coops always have these in Zürich (at least mine in the City). Am there tomorrow, will take a quick look.
So, finally could check today, and Coop St. Annahof in the City always stocks these - and have loads. CHF 1.80 a pack.
They always have a pretty good selection of British food stuffs.

Your post made me get a crazy craving since then, and so also bought a pack for myself with my favorite British cheeses
