I don't know I find with all kit-kats apart from yer regular and yer dark (oh and that tiramisu one they did once) that they all have a bit of a cardboardy chemical taste to them. Chunky ones especially.

there is a place in london that does freaking REECE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP milkshakes. these are going to be the death of me, i think.

(yeah, i know it's not a milkshake thread but i namedropped north american candy so it counts)

reece's pieces are one of the few things I buy on a massively regular basis from the local shop. I don't think you can put peanut butter in something and it not be amazing. I want one of those milkshakes now.

Isn't there a shake-a-way or whatever on Parliament Street? they should be able to sort you out.

It does do lots of different peanut butter chocolate type milkshakes too. I got frightened by all the choice and had cherry. It was very nice.

The streets are literally ablaze with talk of caramel chunky Kit Kats. The woman in the corner shop just started telling me about them, unprompted. She was giving me advice on how to eat it and everything. They have to be stored in the fridge, apparently.

Never has a chocolate bar been so hyped, so soon. They're the POBPAH of confectionary.

I defy anyone to find a better chocolate bar than the new Galaxy Cookie Crumble.

That is pretty tasty actually. It's all about the snow bites right now though. Get them while you can!

What on earth are snow bites?

I used to enjoy the Hershey's equivalent to the Galaxy cookie thing, although it's a long while since that showed up in any newsie's by mine.

They're a bit like mini eggs but softer in the middle and with a light powdering of sugar on top.

edit: changed picture to one that wasn't bigger than the internet

Ooh, yeah, they're good.

I had another Galaxy Cooking Crumble about half an hour ago. I'll be mainlining them by Christmas.

I had a Twix Fino for dinner today. I'll be honest, anorak, I can't make head nor tail of them.

Can anyone help me?

I'm replying to this a bit late, Damo, but I believe we ate Tiramisu Kitkats the day we met. Or the day after, anyway.

And no Sam, I cannot help you with your new Twix. Have a go at describing it. You're good with words and that

Well that just takes the biscuit.

It's two fingers up to Twix tradition.

it's a twix with the biscuit removed and a wafer added

there's a third less calories, apparently

And a third less taste, I'll wager.
