You obviously have no idea where in the US I live. Selection in general is pretty bad around here, so no, I can't find this "Skor" of which you speak. I have a hard time finding Peanut Butter M&M's! :(

Tosses you 3 Bags of PB M&M's I have Many more at work :3

Sorry mate, but Hershey's clearly begs to differ on Nutrageous being part of the Reese's line: http://www.hersheys.com/products/details/reesesnutrageous.asp.

I suspect your local supplier is selling you knock-offs, so you need to get the real deal!

This is Skor (odd that they make this and Heath, since it's pretty much the same damn thing!): http://www.hersheys.com/products/details/skor.asp. They also have a product locator so you can find your nearest supplier, so check it out!

As a funny aside, Hershey's has a less-than-rosy reputation over here, so much so that I was sent a bar of Hershey's Almond with an IBC Root Beer order from a UK importer at no extra charge and I took it to work to see if anyone would want it. Cakes and chocolate normally don't last more than a few hours around my office, but that thing sat out in the open for a solid week before I gave up and ate it myself (yes, it was crap).

  • Cola, especially that Coca cola Zero stuff.
  • Choclate in all kinds of ways. Milk chocolate, dark, crispy, white, with nuts, I like it all.
  • Pancakes
  • McChicken
  • Frikandel (A Dutch sausage made out of minced meat of various sorts, mostly porc, beef and horsemeat.)
  • Chicken Nuggets
  • Kipcorn (A sort of large chicken finger sold in Dutch and Belgian snackbars)
  • Belgian waffles (preferably with whipped cream and chocloate sauce :P Jummy!)
  • Chocolate sauce Sundae
  • Poffertjes (Dutch pancake-like delight. These are about an inch in diameter and served in portions of about eight and served with butter and powder sugar)
  • Wraps/burrito's/taco's
  • Pizza, particularly with my own selection of herbs, meat and vegetables and cheese on it.
  • Speculaas (A gingerbread-like cookie that is eaten around the Dutch/Belgian holiday of Sinterklaas (St. Nicholas) which is the Dutch variant of Santa Claus observed around 5 and 6 December. Particularly good are the tiny speculaas cookies called kruidnoten (spiced nuts) popular around this feast at the end of november and early december.
  • M&M's, i like all three of the variations
  • Magnum, particularly the basic milk chocolate one and the Mars-looking one with the little nuts and caramel.
  • Vlammetjes (Means small flames in Dutch. These are small pieces of chili-spiced meat wrapped in dough served with chili sauce. There's probably something similar in other countries. These are like a sort of mini Asian/Mexican snacks.)
  • Chocolate milkshakes
  • KitKat, particularly the Chunky one.
  • Belgian chips with mayonaise
  • Crisps and other small potato snacks
  • Peanuts
  • Kebab
  • Chocolate muffins

And probably a lot more i forgot about. And yes, picking a favorite is hard.

@Sean Aaron: Neither of those links worked. I got "page not found" errors from Hershey's website. :P
A quick search of "Reese's Nutrageous" shows that you're right, though. I wonder how I'd missed that before? I guess I just don't usually go for that one, so I didn't pay any attention to it. :P

I think I'd heard Hershey's was unpopular in the UK, but I have no idea why, 'cause their stuff ROCKS! Isn't Cadbury one of (if not THE) main chocolate companies over there? They barely represent themselves over here, mostly with the creme eggs at Easter.

I don't see many Cadbury products over here either, I don't recall seeing any Cadbury bars in the super markets at least. From what I understand my country already has one of the largest chocolate industries in the world, particularly during the holiday season, so foreign brands are not very popular here. I'm not even sure if they sell those cream eggs here.

Try this link and then click products: http://www.hersheys.com/products/chocolate.asp

I think some Hershey's stuff is good, but their chocolate bars are pretty waxy and probably wouldn't qualify as "chocolate" in Europe given they have little in the way of actual cocoa mass in them (probably more cocoa butter and flavouring). The Reeses stuff gets imported (what a fate for them to be owned by Hershey's!) because of the novelty peanut butter factor, though I do find it amusing that Nestle sells a peanut butter Chunky Kit Kat here, but not in the States.

Cadbury's is massive, but they seem to sell mainly to Commonwealth nations like Canada and Australia and not to the States as you've noted. Cadbury-Schweppes does own a number of American soft drinks companies as well like Dr. Pepper/7-Up, Stewart's (lovely classic sodas) and IBC (also lovely, though it seems odd they own these guys and Stewarts due to the product overlap).

Oh, and I wish I was there, too. What state are you in anyway? Gotta be better than Maryland, I figure. :P

@Dicesukeinuzuka: I have pizza at least twice a week, if that makes you feel any better about your unhealthy eating. :)

I know there is peanuts covered in M&M's (like 'em), but i never heard something like peanut butter M&M's and peanut butter KitKat chunky.

Sounds interesting though...

And a dark KitKat... really? We've got milk and white ones here though.

A bowl of delicious Hot and Spicy Cheez-its. Mmm...delicious...with a hint of spicy...

Also, anything with chicken. Also cheesecake. Also many others that I won't list. :D I love food almost as much as I love playing video games.

They are both awesome. But I still like milk chocolate the best.

That 70% cocoa stuff is disgusting though.

That's really the limit of what you can eat on its own. I enjoy %70, but I think it takes a mature palate to appreciate it; it's best eaten on its own so you can properly savour the chocolate...mmmmmmmmmmm.
