Hmmmmmm, I am a chocoholic over here in the States. About the only kind I wouldn't eat would be chocolate covered insects!

The only one I see on your list that we have over here is Twix. Those are the chocolate covered cookie sort of things, right?

I would say that it would probably be safe to send your freind any of the other types on the chance they have never had them.

The Boost is my favorite. Mmmm choplit.

Did you see that program yesterday with the big American guy who came over and bought just about every type of chocolate bar in a newsagents? He was doing a program on obesity.

Yeah. It's like two bars with a cookie/biscuit base and caramel on top, covered in chocolate.

You should look them up on wikipedia and see if they have an american equivalent.

Maltesers is similar to a candy available here that's called whoppers. I'd probably stay away from sending that. I also wouldn't recommend sending the toffee crisps since toffee is available in several candies and ice creams here.

I consulted my local chocolate oracle... she says anything from Harrod's would likely be a real treat and that even the same (for example) Cadbury products there and here in North America are different in many ways. There is almost always better than here. LOL.

A link.

I'm partial to the Trinidad white choclate over whole hazel nuts... it's powerful.

Twix is the only choclate that looks familiar to me... I'm in Southern California

I only recognize Twix as a milk chocolate coating a crunchy bread thingy with caramel goo in the middle. I prefer the dark chocolate variety anytime.

Thanks for the help everybody, im very thankful


So Twix is a popular one then, i wont bother with that.

Im surprised about Kinder eggs as i thought they were American made, perhaps you call them something different?. They have a toy in the middle



Anyway, thanks

I recognize Twix. Yes, Matlteasers sound like our Whoppers. If Bounty is the chocolate covered coconut bar(s), then I've had one, but aren't fond of it, as it is not sweet enough, like our Mounds or Almond Joy.

American chocolate has more sugar then European chocolate. Americans have been used to milk chocolate more than dark. (Dark here gaining popularity now with "link" to "healthier" heart--flavaniods.)
I think Cadbury's is more milk chocolate. Very tasty. Cadbury's cream eggs are brought out at Easter time here.

Ooh, Harrods chocolates...good idea!!

Sometimes a candy maker will make the same name bar for consumption in different countries, so the name might be the same, but the taste will be totally different. Nestles, e.g.

Please U2U me a case of Toffee Crisps LOL If they're the same as ones in Canada, I can't get enough of them!

Haven't heard of Kinder eggs.
