20 - World-Famous Kambly Swiss Cookie Factory
On June 22, 2023, the Hiestand-Haston Tour group will stop at this world-famous cookie factory and sample (FREE!) dozens of cookies. But I can pretty much assure you that you will buy some too! We will also eat lunch there.
Oscar Kambly started his company in 1910 with his grandmother’s recipe for Bretzeli—a thin, crisp waffle-like biscuit that dates back to the 14th century in the Emmental. Kambly, a Swiss family-owned company, now spans three generations. It has continued to make these and many other types of biscuits in Trubschachen for over 100 years and is the largest biscuit manufacturer in Switzerland.
The Kambly Experience has rows and rows of shelves filled with bags of these delicious biscuits. For each type of biscuit, there is a round tin with some you can sample. I tried as many as I possibly could, never finding one that I did not like. The biscuits have myriad flavors and ingredients, like chocolate (blonde, white, milk and dark), nuts (hazelnuts, almonds and pistachios, etc.), caramel, coconut, orange and many more. Everyone should be able to find at least one biscuit they really like.
The Kambly Experience includes interactive exhibits and a short film in several languages, including English. All of the cookies you can sample are also available to purchase. t the Kambly Café, also located at the visitor center, you can order beverages, sandwiches and desserts, while catching a glimpse of the confectioners working on various projects.
