While Switzerland’s national grocers, Migros and Coop, can complete with the best of them in other countries like the England, France, and the US, they do present expats with certain surprises.
Like in other places, the interior layout of Swiss grocery stores has also been designed using science and psychology to entice shoppers to buy more. However, it is more tailored to the Swiss mindset. Visitors will also discover many brands they recognize from their home country, which is only understandable because Nestlé is the worlds largest food company (and it is Swiss).
But with all these similarities, there are some products that might leave non-Swiss shoppers searching their head. Here are twelve products loved by the Swiss that you may seen in your local shop, in a restaurant, a cookbook, or a Swiss person’s home.
If you are Swiss and are living abroad, I apologize if these pictures make you hungry or a little home sick… Christmas is coming up, so ask your Swiss relatives for a care package!
Interested in trying some of these foods? Have you tried some of them? What did you think?
