Sharlene sent me some Hershey's Kisses once - they were horrible! :lol:

But not all US chocolate is awful. Ghirardelli is really pretty good. Having said that I think most chocolate is an abomination anyhow.

Well I have to admit that the Belgian chocolate covered espresso beans were rather tasty. But generally I'm with Lu-Tze and prefer licorice. :P

Liquorice is an acquired taste but I like the black stuff - red liquorice is horrible though - but not as horrible as Hershey bars... :twisted:

The Belgians and Swiss have chocolate sewn up *goes to check secret stash*

Liqourice is not a sweet! You can cover roofs with it for heavens sake :D

As a child, someone once bought me a bag of liqourice alsorts as a reward for doing the right thing. I've done the wrong thing ever since :lol:

One thing about this thread that makes me feel nostalgic, 4p for a chocolate bar.

Never heard of a swisskit, although it sounds like a Cadbury's Picnic, which I almost lived on as a child (you know, back when you could give a child chocolate without them being rushed into care... :roll: )

I didn't know America had chocolate, all I could find when I was there was blocks of Brown.

I think the bar you are really meaning though was chocolate covered peanut brittle, perhaps?

I'm sure that's a Dime bar, it did have a peculiar taste.
