This is the best accidental discovery that we made. This store is bigger than the one in the factory and has the same prices... sometimes even better, because whenever there are products that had some slight problem, such as a packaging problem, they put them here on mega discount. The other benefits are that this place is not as crowded AND even better, they have a huge range of Nestle products here (unlike the other store which only has chocolate). Along with Cailler chocolate, you can buy water, other Nestle candy products, frozen pizza, shampoo, baby products... and all at factory prices!!!
After you take your tour through the factoy, you can go to the store inside of the factory, and buy a variety of Cailler and other Nestle products for the lowest prices you will find in Switzerland. The downside is that the store inside of the factory is crowded and lines can be long. Instead of shoping at this store, you are better off going to the Nestle Factory Store down the street...
So good that it deserves its own tip. Caution: you could seriously hurt yourself here! The whole room is filled with trays like this. So good that I went twice!!!
NO STREET ADDRESS, Broc, 1636, CH
The second time I went to Broc, I went via car. We traveled to Bulle because my friend, Emanuel, knew how to get there. From Bulle to Broc, we guessed the directions. Combining street signs and directions from an elderly couple who was walking down the road, we got there. On the way, we had to stop for a procession of decorated cows. We couldn't figure out why, on a Friday afternoon, this was going on, but it was definately entertaining!
I went to Broc twice... once by bus + train, and once by car. The first time, we left Fribourg via Bus and went to Bulle. Bulle is one of the bus hubs in Fribourg Kanton. From Bulle, we took the regional train to Broc. This is heading in the opposite direction of the Gruyères cheese factory... you could possible catch both of them in one day. The ticket from Bulle to Broc was 3 francs with our Halbtax card. I'm pretty sure that the Broc Fabrique stop was at the end of the line.
