Train Pies!

SBB CakeThis was definitely an “only in Switzerland” moment!

The train station near our place has been undergoing a lot of construction, for a long time. I’m sure it’ll look great when it’s done, but for the moment, it’s a noisy eyesore.

Well, heading to work the other morning, there were two people dressed in SBB uniforms (the Swiss train service), passing things out to commuters. I wasn’t exactly sure what they were handing out at first but my internal “Ooh! Free stuff” alarm went off, so I took one.

Turns out, they are little “please excuse the mess” pies that announce, on the wrapper, that trains which used to depart from track 4 will temporarily depart from track 6, due to construction work. There is even a little number 6 baked right into the pie crust to remind you.

How adorable and distinctly Swiss is this, right?!?! And, it was delicious!

  1. That’s so awesome. In Boston you would get no notice, end up in Hyde park, get mugged by an 8 year old with a bad attitude at a dunkin donuts, and somehow it would all have been your own fault for not checking the website for changes to your regular daily route in the first place or…better still… just “knowing”.
