Sugar Parade

I honestly expect that my love for sugar will never die. I was always a bit of a candy freak and growing up my favorite bar had to be the Crunchie bar. This was by no means an easy bar to get a hold of because it was British, and as a result there was not a lot of places that would have. But when you grow up in New York City the fact is that you can almost get anything whenever you want. Except laid, perhaps. But then again, if you’re a woman you can go to whatever depth you need to and you probably don’t have to go too deep.

Yes, I’m editorializing. Anyway, here is exactly what the packaging looks like on a crunchie bar now.

I think what is really funny about this is that when I was just looking for the package for this particular car so I could put it on my blog, I found a shop that was selling the chocolate bar for seven dollars each. Yes. I am talking about seven dollars each.

I really find it funny when people attempt to make money off of things that really they should not. I know as much as anyone that if you just talk to somebody who actually distributes Cadbury bars, you can get these for like a dollar or dollar 50 tops. There is really no need to break the bank to get yourself a crunchie bar, but apparently some people actually must do that.

Anyway, back to the sugar parade.

I know that a lot of people gave this bar a particular amount of hatred, but I will give respect to the Turkish delight, which is also known in package form as the Big Turk. This is definitely one of those bars that you either love or hate, and I have to say that I love it a lot. I know that a lot of people complain that this is a weird gelatine-based treat, but at the same time you have to remember that almost everything is gelatine-based nowadays.

If you are trying to avoid eating horse related products, you are living in the wrong century. Anyway, this is a fantastic bar if you can still find it but I honestly think that it is not as easy to find as it used to be.

The Final Hit

The final hit on the parade has to go to the Heath Bar. I know that a lot of people will say to me, “But D! That’s just a Skor bar in disguise.” I agree, but I seem to think that the Heath bar came first. I could be absolutely wrong on this, but I really doubt it. I tend to be right when it comes to chocolate because I am such a huge aficionado. At any rate, things are starting to come together for me lately and I am really happy with what I am doing on this blog. Obviously, if you try any of these bars, I would recommend that you try the Crunchie one. That is some damn fine chocolate.

  1. Once you open the golden bag the sweet smell of Cadbury’s chocolate wafts past your nostrils. Look into the bag and you see lots of Cadbury Crunchie nuggets all huddling together awaiting their fate. The Crunchie nuggets look really good, some of the nuggets are completely covered in sweet milk chocolate but others have little patches where the chocolate has failed to completely cover the pieces of Crunchie and they look especially delectable. If the sweet honeycomb is exposed to the air it tends to go sticky and tastes quite toffee-like so those semi-covered nuggets will be left until last and savoured.
