FOWC with Fandango: Empirical


Two bottles of HP Sauce standing on the shelf
If you order two bottles of HP Sauce that arrive by post from a Swiss dealer because we do not live in England the basic price is twice than what you would pay in England. Then you have to add the postage, which costs more than the actual bottles.

So if you want to have HP Sauce with your Cervelat or any other Swiss sausage it is an expensive operation.

However I brought the idea with me from England. No. 1 son can no longer eat his Swiss Bratwurst without HP Sauce, I also prefer it to mustard, and although Mr. Swiss says it is not typically Swiss, he also likes to drown his Swiss meat delights in HP Sauce.

Today the parcel arrived from a Swiss company that also have a large store in the Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich, Globus. It was packed in a very dignified box, black, and we even got a complimentary card with it thanking us for our custom.

I grew up with HP Sauce, it was one of life’s experiences, but I have now discovered that introducing it to the family was not so ideal.

  1. I feel the same about Durkee Sauce and have not been able to find it in local stores. I love it with raw veggies such as cauliflower and broccoli. It has a horseradish bite. I finally found some on Amazon, too expensive and too big an amount.

  2. You are introducing them to the finer things in life….. I just Googled HP and our local grocery stores carry it. Who knew?! Funny, but my husband retired from HP—Hewlett Packard, the computer company!

  4. made me laugh! Don’t you have a Globus Delicatessen a bit closer? Or somebody of your family/friends’ circle could bring it to you? And I’m glad we’re not speaking about Marmite, an obsession of many of my English friends I never got friendly with (the Marmite!)
