@shloobi Looks like we'll have to add Galaxy to the list of British treats to try! Apparently it's supposed to be the same or very similar to Dove chocolate in the US, which I'm very fond of. I'm not a big Hershey's fan either (too sour and waxy), but I think for many of the brand's fans its a nostalgic treat and is appealing for that reason. I found the Jaffa bar in the British section of a sweets shop stateside, maybe it's not very popular?

I'm from England and I'd say the best of these is either Dairy Milk or Galaxy, but that's what I grew up with so I suppose that's why =) As an outsider to American chocolate, I haven't tried much, but you can get Hershey's here in a few places and I found the milk chocolate to have a weird aftertaste =S By the way, I've never heard of the Jaffa Bar or seen it in any shops

 @Talulila The candies we tasted were imported from the UK, so ought to have been made with the original recipe, though I have heard of candies having slightly different recipes depending on their intended market, so that's a valid concern (I wouldn't be surprised if much of the Cadbury Dairy Milk available in the US is a different recipe  — ours was the British style, as it was a direct import from the UK). Personally, and I can't speak for the rest of our tasters, I find that most American drugstore type candy bars (which would be the closest analogue to these treats) to be too sweet, and lacking in true chocolate flavor/cacao content as well (though I do LOVE Peppermint Patties), and we did enjoy some of these sweets quite a bit, as is reflected in our commentary. I'd love to know which British candies are your favorite, since you're so passionate on the subject!

OK, while I'm out buying my Violet Crumble, I now have to add a Bounty and Curly Wurly to the list. I grew up with Bounty's, but Curly Wurly's I didn't encounter until I was about 13. Then I had them every chance I got!

 @Susannah Chen  OMG, thanks. Now I have to go buy a Violet Crumble at lunch! I love love love Violet Crumbles. Far prefer them over a Crunchie. I know quite a few people don't like the texture, prefering the Crunchie's honeycomb, but for me it's the opposite.

You guys don't know what you're missing out on! Although I must agree with the British chocolate being a little on the sweet side. We've got our own version of half of those in Australia. Get the Aussie version and the chocolate isn't as sweet.
