British Sweets are Awesome, or Why I'm Now Diabetic

My friend in Dundee decided to totally ruin American sweets for me entirely. The ruination actually started with the Thorntons chocolates I wrote about in my previous post. He wasn't content to stop there. Over the course of about a week I had so many delicious sweets. Not all of them are shown here, they were devoured without thought of photos.

Behold the sweet yummy treasure:

First up we have the Double Decker:
Nougat, krispies, and chocolate. Yum! It's like a Krackel bar with fluffy nougat.

Honeycomb inside, chocolate outside. Good enough reason to never leave the UK.

Pretty much identical to a Mounds bar, but without high fructose corn syrup.

 Kinder Bueno:
Hazelnut in a bar with amazing chocolate. NOM NOM NOM
If I win the lottery I'm getting my winnings in Kinder Buenos.

Little cubes of way-better-than-American chocolate.

Tastes like magic and coconut.

Chocolate, peanuts, and raisins. Meh. Still loads better than most US candy bars.

Licorice stick and a powdered sugar that's like one part Pixy Stix, one part Fun Dip, and a hint of Pop Rocks. Sounds good, but I actually prefer any of those to a sherbet fountain.

Not pictured:
Aero bars: *****
Excellent chocolate bars. I highly recommend the mint.

After Eights: *****
Pretty much identical to Andes Mints.

Poppets: *****
Little bits of chocolatey delicious heaven.
