I have changed it from Bar Rossi to the comedy at Jesters. Always a good night there.

right....let me see if i can get this straight....

<snip> being the only one crazy enough to import vast quantities of chocolate INTO swiss-land....<snip>


chelli

I would kill (a fly or a cockcroach) for the latte and chewy caramel Tim-Tams, Chelli.

Here's wishing you a safe and speedy journey over here.

P.S. The Tim-Tam 'straw' can't be an Australian invention as my German other half knows about it and practises it with all kinds of confection (to my chagrin and anxiety that he'd make a mess of his coffee; yucks, how can anyone drink coffee with bits of cookie in it?).

Better than TimTams, bring Arnotts Mint Slices, as the combination of mint and chocolate is banned in Switzerland. The only exception being "After Eights", the local equivalent of "After Dinner Mints". Or maybe some "Pillow Biscuits" (Perthspeak I think)..
God yeah!!!!!! My family once brought me several packets over. I was s'posed to share them

So Yokine, How are we going to settle this? You mentioned it first but if I rugby-tackle you I may get away with it.

Dunno, maybe you just bring the snake and I'll keep well clear

I can share, actually I have to otherwise I'd demolish the whole packet in no time. Bags of Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs have been known to be eaten in one sitting.

Hey, must you remind us of Bliss Bombs?! It brings back my teenagehood in all its blurry, munchy glory.

Now I wanna go out to buy some popping corn and make some. (Thank the cosmos shops don't open at night in CH.)

Re: calling all lovers of TIM-TAMs living in Zurich!!!!

right-o then....i'm here! and looking at this thread, it would appear that there may be a TimTam riot.

i've landed at my home for the next month....a cute little place called Hotel Shurli in Baretswil....think of a swiss take on Fawlty Towers (about 40mins out of zurich...but close to work).

so i'm alive and well. the telstra sim card doesn't work (despite getting that confirmed before i left!). So, Woodsie, i'll get in contact later somehow regarding the details for sat night. Comedy sounds good.

Soon people.....soon you'll be suckin up that soft TimTam glory.

Chelli

Re: calling all lovers of TIM-TAMs living in Zurich!!!!

Go to the postoffice and pick yourself up a Yallo prepaid card. That should get you sorted on the phone front. Welcome to Zürich.

Maybe not a store, but just found this online store in Germany. Not sure yet if there deliver to CH and the prices aren't exactly cheap. But sure beats flying for 23 hours!!!

Enjoy!!!

There is an Aussies and Kiwis in Switzerland" facebook page.

there is also www.aussies.ch to check out.

Welcome. If I lived in Zurich I would offer you somewhere to stay, especially if there were timtams involved.

Re: calling all lovers of TIM-TAMs living in Zurich!!!!

I'm not Aussie but I love Tim Tams (Slams) ever since I spent 6 months in Australia.

I just wanted to add that in France there's a supermarket chain called "Casino" (Supermarché Casino). They have Tim Tams. I think they are all over France (Google maps shows that it's mostly in big cities). Here's my google search (the small red squares are Casino supermarkets): http://tinyurl.com/7wlbzuv

In Paris there's tons of "Casino's". I buy packs and packs of Tim Tams every time I'm there .

biff:

I'm Swiss ;-) But in thoughts I'm in Sydney... I'm trying to go for work there (not just because of timtams), but as a Swiss girl is it almost impossible =( But you know: "If I never go, I would never know".

Wingnut:

I ordered yesterday on this site some packs
