The Swiss have a reputation for neutrality and army knives but their biggest claim to fame is chocolate. One of their best has two stores here, Teuscher, the inventor of the Champagne Truffle, uniting two of life's grandest flavors. They also have molded sculptures and boxed gifts in kind of a 'Euro mod what we would call retro' style. Clowns, frogs, Santa's and soldiers, all with that Nutcrackery look. Boxed shapes in all sorts of sizes from a sweet sextet to huge one hundred. This is expensive stuff but if you want to start small, the Music Box with a half dozen chocolate guitars is $11.50. Twang.
