Golden Syrup? Can you get it in Zurich?

Does anyone know either:
1) Where you can get `golden syrup` in Zurich?
or
2) Is there something similar available?

If you answer correctly (i.e. positively) I can GUARANTEE that you will receive some Chocolate Tiffin that will make . . it`s that time of year
Thanks . . in anticipation . . Basher.

Er . . Tiffin goes to the first correct answer I should add.

I've bought it in Globus. Expensive, but a tin goes a long way.

Re: Golden Syrup? Can you get it in Zurich?

What about honey as a substitute? Would it have the right texture?

I buy cheap honey (Budget, Prix Garantie) and use it everywhere I used to use sugar. (Müesli, pancakes, glazing for cakes etc.). The good stuff (honey) would be too expensive to use as a Golden Syrup substitute.

Are you planning to make flapjacks? Would it work with honey?

I feel better eating honey than sugar for some reason, maybe it is all in the mind.

Re: Golden Syrup? Can you get it in Zurich?

I know for a fact the Globus at Glatt Zentrum has it. I bought a tin the other day. I just can't remember what I paid for it.

Re: Golden Syrup? Can you get it in Zurich?

The english bookstore of Orell-Füssli at Bahnhofstrasse should store that.

What is Tiffin?

I just like winning. I don't really care what it is as long as I win it.

Orell Füssli on Bahnhofstrasse sometimes have it and it's cheaper there than Globus!

Crushed biscuits, raisins, golden syrup . . all in a tray, pour over melted chocolate with cocoa powder . . smooth with a knife . . chill in the fridge for a few hours . . . cut into squares (big for me . . small for friends) . . enjoy . . . go to gym or for a run, to burn off those calories (that`s for me after eating the piggy portions)

I think I gained 2 kilo's just reading that. You can donate my portion to the poor women in Langstrasse who can't afford clothes.

Re: Golden Syrup? Can you get it in Zurich?

You can use honey instead, its a perfectly acceptable substitute, with the added benefit of being a bit healthier (although still 100% sugar, seems like healthier sugar). You may need to warm the honey first to mix it, making it as runny as possible...
