    I'm not very keen on American 'candy' anyway as it doesn't taste anywhere near as good as British/European chocolate. I did binge on "O Henry" bars when I was in Canada though :D Confectionary is well cheap in N America anyway and with the current exchange rate between USD and GBP being just 0.60, you have to laugh at their shocking markup :rotfl:

    Some fools must be buying it though :eek:

    What do you mean by "higher quality"? Higher cocoa content?

    N American chocolate bars don't taste like chocolate to me. They always seem to taste like chocolate flavour. I guess it's what you're used to though. Can't say I had the wrappers in my hands long enough to look at the ingredients in depth :laugh:

    Just seen £5 for a small pack of Oreo cookies @ Movietyme :eek: :rotfl:

    BTW, are we still in DVD Talk? :rotfl:

    To be fair, they do have the odd nicely priced DVD in their tiny :laugh: sale section and also if you do a power search for titles up to £10. Read their terms & conditions though :eek:

    I like the enlarge size of picture option which is not even twice the size - or does that cost more too.

    Can someone please clear something up for me....

    Are M & Ms already available in the U.K. through normal retail stores? If so, then I would have to also question the wisdom of selling said product at such a high price !

    Unless a different variety or size was being offered (hideous price aside).....

    Yeah, they have been in the UK for years but we don't get the 'exotic' varieties, like the peanut butter ones (I've never seen them in stores anyway), just the peanut and chocolate ones.

    I'm amazed, why is that then ?
    American chocolate is awful, I was forced to stop by Hershey Visitor Centre in Oakdale CA, wife raided the Gift Shoppe, I thought they all tasted bland and can't see why people rave about them.
    I like Galaxy best :cool:

    Herschey's chocolate tastes like vomit.

    Ghirardelli's is on a par with Cadbury's, though not the same.

    For a specific product - I adore Butterfinger. Which is from Nestlé. And I wish they sold it here. Mind you, they'd probably change the recipe 'to suit the Eurpoean taste' and spoil it. That's what most firms seem to do - take a good idea and chuff it up for the UK.

    On the contrary, Hershey's chocolate contain a higher cocoa amount than most European brands. Cadbury "chocolate" contains so little cocoa that they were in danger of having it reclassified as a "chocolate flavoured confectionery".

    Dontcha just love Lindt extra creamy.

    Chocolate should be milky and creamy in my view. It tastes much better for it.

    Europe just went mad with that one (like they have done with other things). By their own argument, the best chocolate would therefore consist of 100% cocoa and nothing else - urgh! :laugh:
