Re: Where can I buy brown sugar here?

what is 'self-raising flour' called in Switzerland, and where can I find it? As far as I know, Migros does not have it...

No need for all that bother.

Next time, just enter the thing for which you are searching in the box in the top right corner, and Bob shall be your uncle.

Re: Where can I buy brown sugar here?

You can buy several types of brown sugar on the American Food Store Online at http://www.afoodave.ch/catalog/Sugar...ners-48-1.html

Last time I ordered from them a bag appeared at my doorstep with an invoice inside, didn't even have to pay in advance. You can also get your Kraft Mac and Cheese fix from them.

Re: Where can I buy brown sugar here?

As a newbie I would also like to say that brown sugar here is not same as the one in my country.

Over there it doesn't come in silly grains, you buy it by the pound. When you want to have your coffee you just take a rock lying on the floor and smash the block of sugar with it. It is sooo convenient!!!

Needless to say, not even the aforementioned temple of consumption (globus) has it. It is probably the single most difficult aspect of my life here... I still have the same nightmare from time time: a 19 year old brat behind the counter at starbucks is telling me that brown sugar blocks don't exist, then I tell him "I payed 24 francs for this cup of coffee, give me my damn brownsugarblock and customary stone or I am calling your manager!" ... ohhh the pain ...

There you go, now I feel part of the group

Re: Where can I buy brown sugar here?

Not sure if it's been mentioned, and I am not going to browse all of the postings to see, but...

Re: Where can I buy brown sugar here?

I live in a small village in the sticks, with 1 shop that sells almost everything, from knicker elastic, shoe laces, booze and bread, etc. Sent OH to buy sugar to make an upside down cake, and said 'if by nay chance they have brown sugar, the darker the better'. I thought I might me lucky if he brought back light cassonade- but BINGO- a lovely bag of dark cassonade, like muscovado sugar. Perfect.

What is says on the pack:

cassonade de candi brune CANDIDO

Re: Where can I buy brown sugar here?

Someone told me about this forum was a place to get beer without having to pay for it. I have searched, but I can find no reference to it. Can anyone help ?

Just find a friendly Swiss who will invite you in for a beer (yeah I know, it will take some effort). Bonne chance santé (a drive to Romandie might help)- just say Odile sent you.

Swiss dishwashers suffer from headaches and can become quite bilious if not treated with the correct tablets.

Could you please fill out the following application form for free beer:
If you answer yes to the following question, you qualify for free beer

Are you female?
Are you an attractive female?
Are you a young attractive female?
Are you a young attractive "easy" female?
