That was Reese's peanut butter cups. They started to bring in a bunch of American products and my kids and I call it the circus shelf (behind JR´s back) because it looks like clownery. A bunch of expensive crap such as hershey bars (that really bad quality chocolate) and poptarts and whatnot. JR insisted I try at least Reese's, but it's so incredibly sweet. I had two of them because I was really hungry.

I have to say the US allows way lower cocoa mass content to be called chocolate than the EU 13.gif

Oh, we have the 'premium' levels in cocoa in the expensive stuff, too ~ and of course, all the imports.

The clown shit is for the school kids. chuckle.gif

The Hershey bars I had tasted like puke.

It's true though, they let lower cocoa solids products pass as chocolate in the US than acceptable here. 13.gif

Here is a "premium" American chocolate, if you can find it wherever you are :-)

In Hawaii - they grow their own chocolate, so, there are some high end brands producing out of Hawaii as well.

Lindt is a Swiss company. Switzerland is well renowned for their chocolate.

Not all U.S. chocolate, Octo ~ just the low end, street crap. chuckle.gif I suppose it's all about the money ~ they get more mileage outta' the resources and consequently more jingle in the coffers ~ the premium stuff is gooder, and so is the price, but that's not what swells the coffers.

That may be true.

There is a free trade agreement being mangled out as we speak between the EU and the US. As soon as next year as far as I can discern.

That would be awesome!

Ghirardelli is a good example of premium US chocolate.

Or See's Candies. Some of the best chocolate I've had. http://www.sees.com/?gclid=CNKr_pzwqrcCFU1o7AodPTMAlA

Hershey is milk chocolate and not the same. Less cocoa is right Octo.

My favorite chocolate ever is Lindt. Like Ritter Sport bars and Perugia.

And, I love Marzipan. Can't hardly get that in the States. Complete Bullshit!!! I'm hungry for it!!! gaah.gif

AND, I love Reese's. Give in to the guilty pleasure Octo. They are good!!![/i]
