Especially the mint Aeros. It was like a get out of jail free card. Reply Phang November 25th, 2008 Cost Plus World Market stocked British chocolate, the last time I checked. I remember getting something along the lines of Flake there. When I was still living in Malaysia, I ate Time Out chocolate, which I believed had a of Flake in it. Reply grace November 25th, 2008 omg Aeros yes. also good and missing from your list: Hob Nobs. I found some at an Irish Fair in Minneapolis this summer, and my friends were like, “why are you freaking out like a crazy person?” I miss England. Reply Broke But Still Drinking November 26th, 2008 I’d send my friend back to England and tell em to bring back some better candy or don’t bother coming back. I wouldn’t send a bag of Jr. Mints to a bunch of Brits unless I truly despised them. Reply Jon November 26th, 2008 Maltessers may be my all time favorite. Think malted milk balls, but better. Reply Nicole November 27th, 2008 Mint Aero and Smarties are my favorite UK candies! Reply Wutwut November 28th, 2008 Flake is shit tbh… Smarties are win! Reply BS November 28th, 2008 a flake stuck in the middle of a cone of softserve vanilla ice cream! the best Reply Haterasian November 28th, 2008 totally can’t stand smarties. They are like bitter skittles. yick Reply Lainie Petersen November 29th, 2008 For those who remember, the Aero is very similar to the Chocolite bar that was popular in the USA in the 70s and (I think) early 80s. I pick them up at World Market, as others have mentioned. And yes, Hob Nobs rule. Reply KevinB November 29th, 2008 All of these – Aero, Smarties, and Flake – are available every day in every corner store in Canada. You don’t have to go to Britain to get them. And there are some other great bars that are unique to Canada – Crunchie (chocolate over sponge toffee), Crispy Crunch (chocolate over peanut crunch toffee), Caramilk (chocolate over flowing caramel centre; also available in other flavours), and the all time fave, Coffee Crisp (chocolate over crisp wafers filled with coffee creme). If you have a Sam’s Club or Costco membership in the US, you can use it at their Canadian stores, and pick up cartons at less than $0.60 US per bar. Reply chili December 1st, 2008 Oh, Smarties..I Love them!!:) Reply chili December 1st, 2008 Nice Blog You have!!:) Reply Cristine December 7th, 2008 I didn’t know Aero and Smarties weren’t available in the U.S… weird.
