Stalden Creme

Stalden Creme

Produced since 1903, this vanilla pudding in a can has been a Swiss favourite for over a century.

It's named for the tiny hamlet where the first factory was built, Stalden, which today is a part of the larger community of Konolfingen and is where the Berneralpen Milchgesellschaft was founded in 1896.

And who founded that company? None other than master hotelier Caesar Ritz.
