Mmm. Strange foreign candy.

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

In some respects, Canada lives in a bizarre netherworld between the U.S. and Britain (and now, Hong Kong, China, India, etc.). We have candies that are unavailable in the States, from Cadbury, Mars, Nestle, and other British firms. Still, our stuff is different from that in Britain itself, so if you want the original thing, you need to get imported British candy from specialty shops. Fortunately, there are quite a number of those, especially in Victoria.

P.S. Since I have diabetes, I don't really eat any of that stuff. But my wife does sometimes, and she often buys yummy U.K. products for her Scotland-born father.

P.P.S. Did I say yummy U.K. products? Please be clear: I'm talking only candies here, not cuisine.
