Water chestnuts (Kastenian)

What has happened to them? I have found these in the Migros for over a decade until last winter. Now there are none anywhere? The sales people just say that they don't carry them anymore. Anyone know of a source? The Thai market in Luzern have none either.

You could ask at asia way (they deliver) if they have them in stock. An alternative might be new asia market, they have them in stock - but they might mainly provide restaurants. Good luck!

Re: Water chestnuts (Kastenian)

I get mine from Coop. Not all do them but the one inside Pfauen does. They're in the Thai section.

Good luck.

I bought tinned ones in the Coop last week; as Simondp said, in the foreign foods section.

Never been to Rotkreuz but they have them here in Neuchâtel and if all else fails I can get some and pass them on to your missus when I see her next week.

Re: Water chestnuts (Kastenian)

Was recently searching myself, having noticed the disappearance from usual spot on Coop/Migros shelf -

Spotted at Jelmoli (large tin (drained weight 340gr as opposed to the "standard" half for exotic additions) for 3.90sfr

Now if I can find some jicama...
