Up here, even though we are so close to the states, there are certain things that you can only find up here. This works vice versa too I suppose, for example we can't watch any comedy central programs from the states unless we watch them via the comedy network in Canada. I can't get Paydays up here nor Nutter Butter cookies. If I were younger and still in my candy consuming years, I'd hate that there aren't things like Tangy Taffy and Big Hunk and Abba Zabba up here. Perhaps I would have enjoyed learning about new candy items, but at my age I'm not really interested in tasting new tooth rotting concoctions. (Unless you buy me some, of course.) Anyway, I just wanted to show you Americans what candy is available only across the border. My mom loves Coffee Crisp which I had never seen until I came here. I still haven't tasted it, but I bring some to mom now when I visit.
It looks to me like a coffee flavored kit-kat bar but maybe I'll try a piece from mom's stash next time.
This is a really big chocolate bar. I don't think Shaq is any longer on the package. Apparently there is nougat inside the chocolate. Haven't tried it, I'm thinking it's like a Babe Ruth, only bigger.
The Aero bar has always confused me. Why would I want a candy full of air. I don't want to pay for air. I want to pay for chocolate and sugar. I think the mint one looks gross, but it probably wouldn't be bad.
The eat more bar I love due to its clever name. Apparently there is nothing in the states to compare this to. It's described as a "dark toffee peanut chew". There is chocolate in it too.
Another one with no stateside version is the Crunchie. It's a sponge toffee center surrounded by chocolate. The center is brittle though, so don't let the word "sponge" fool you.
The crispy crunch is like Butterfinger, only better.
Okay, just so you know, coconut candy is an oxymoron. Gross. Seems like a Mounds bar to me, the vilest of all confections.
Finally the Big Turk. I don't know if I'll ever try this. It's a combo of chocolate and jelly. Yes jelly and that's why it's low in fat. Supposedly it's reminiscent of a steamy night in the Turkish capital. What is Turkish Delight anyway? Apparently it's that with chocolate around it.
