If Del participates, maybe she can send out Oz Poison Candy, made of all natural Australian ingredients. :D

If we ever see Del again. :roll:

Hope the old trout is OK, and that those migraines haven't got any worse.

^ Hope Del is ok.

Good idea, sort of, I don't want to receive any sweets though. I'd be more than happy to send some deliciousness OS. I'm thinking Violet Crumbles and Tim Tams. Let me know what you're thinking.

It doesn't have to be sweets. I actually don't much care for sweets and would prefer savory items. Plus, as a vegetarian, I can't eat anything containing geletin. :?

This is something we can discuss when we contact each other for the exchange though. ;)

Sister Jennifer, do you want me to add you to the list? :)

In the US, most chocolate companies now ship in a Styrofoam cooler with dry ice in the bottom, and you have to get 2 day shipping or faster.

There's no laws about it or anything though.
The reason we make crap chocolate is because it's cheap, has a higher profit margin, and kids don't know any better.
Then of course if you've grown up on it, why get anything else :P

There's a small confectionery company here in Belfast, who have cashed in on the whole 'Troubles' thing, and now offer Falls Road Chocolate (Mint crisp in a green wrapper), and Shankill Road Chocolate (Orange flavoured in an orange wrapper). Both feature scenes from the 2 roads on the wrappers :)

They taste quite good too! :D

Met a friend of mine today, who gave me money to bring her as much Galaxy chocolate bars from Birmingham as I could carry :lol:

Tony. It occurred to me at Stupid o' Clock this morning that perhaps we should have any restrictions listed after our name...

... ie, you're a veggie, so can't have gluten (or whatever it is)
... Sugar free for me

etc....

No worries! :D



Bouncy, that's probably a good idea. If people want to post restrictions, I'll add them to the list. ;)
