Awsome gift and future stomach ache

I got this package of assorted American candy and chocolate bars in the mail today! I guess it's because we have so much American TV and movies here that I recognize a lot of them, like the Oh Henry bar! I remember that from Seinfeld when Kramer tried to sue the heiress to the candy bar fortune for walking around in a bra and Hershey from when Project Runway made outfits out of candy wrapper. If feels iconic somehow so I'm exited to try them out for the first time. There are a lot of them so maybe I wont do a post for each and every bar, a best and worst of might be a little bit more interesting.There is a LOT of peanut and peanutbutter in theese! Is peanut the Sakura of America? Must suck to have a nut allergy...

I think Americans just like the taste of peanuts and chocolate together. Candy makers see a trend and capitalize on it. I prefer chocolate and almonds myself.

American chocolate mostly makes e sick, but I loved those cookie and cream bars as a child.

Arika: I guess it makes sence, we only have like one or two brands of chocolate here and the only peanut candy we have is Snickers. I like chocolate and almonds too but it's not that common, there is this one great candy that you can make yourself with chocolate dipped almonds rolled in cinnamon.
Miss Maus: I have only tried a few of them so far but I think the quality of the chocolate is quite poor unfortunaly.

Yeah, our grocery store brands of chocolate are pretty terrible. Like eating wax mostly. And we do use peanuts and peanut oil in lots of foods, not just chocolate. I think they are government subsidized.

marzipanfuntime: Some of it is ok, but mostly the ones we have here in Sweden too, maybe because I like them more because I'm used to the taste. I really liked milky way Caramel, we only have the regular one but it's one of my favourites.
