    I've not been impressed by much American candy / chocolate I've ever tried (and I've tried a lot lol) certainly none of Hershey's stuff did anything for me.

    Us Brits seems to have a far sweeter tooth than most other places, or maybe we have just become accustomed to our uber-sugary chocolate so that other kinds taste awful / bitter.

    Oh, Hershey is still stuffed full of sugar. I don't know what they do to make it taste so awful, perhaps it's something to do with the cocoa mass or cocoa butter.

    I'm throwing my 2 'US' cents in towards the US drinks and going straight to the worlds most addictive and awesome liquid drink!!!

    Hershey's Chocolate. Not impressed....again-mountain-dew-172x250.jpg

    I'm talking the proper US original 'Dew, not the UK remake which had to remove the corn syrup and YELLOW 5 because of EU law, or that poor attempt at a 'Dew energy drink. I usually order crates of the stuff from Amazon from time to time to ensure it's the proper US stuff. I LOVE it so, so much. If possible, I would just take it Intravenously!!!


    Edit! Awwwwwww yeaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!! American Soda - The real taste of America in Europe!

    I believe Asda have now pulled it from the shelves (will have to double check). But I suspect there was quite a bit of Hershey's exported to the UK/Europe and it hasn't sold very well at all hence the cheap selling off.
    Oh, and talking of Asda, their smart price chocolate (30p a 100g bar) and 'Chosen by you' chocolate (£1 per 200g bar) is surprisingly good (milk, white and dark). We use the smart price ones for cooking (chocolate brownies anyone?). Mind you, teh foreign ones they sell in Aldi/Lidl for £1 a bar are very, very nice too
