Do Europeans get excited when they see American candy?

>> No.7748062

We've had sour patch just as long as you guys have.

That said, I am partial to Mike and Ikes, which I only find in import sections.

>Do Europeans get excited

many a Euro gran got growed up quick (wink wink) as a young girl to get one of these delicious chocolate bars as the Allies headed for Berlin

I'm from Britain and I have to say
American candy is so shit.

>> No.7748284

I'm european and I gotta say I'm excited whenever I see something new in the markets. F.e. Oreos hit the market like five years ago here. It's always fun seeing fresh Lay's tastes labeled with new which were forever on us market until they got here.

>> No.7748289

No, because ours is better. We have a long-standing warning against American chocolate because it's full of wax and oil.
You'd pump it full of HFCS if it wasn't banned in the EU.

>> No.7748291

Do you have the full variety of Oreos? Birthday Cake, and Watermelon, and so on?

>> No.7748294

I'm so glad I don't live in the EU.

>> No.7748304

I'm Canadian and American candy is actually awful, so if they do they must have shit taste. The chocolate tastes like it's been fused with plastic or some shit, and because of the food health standards there I wouldn't be surprised if it were.
Brittish candy/chocolate is pretty good though.

Also American children are retarded and spoiled kinder eggs for the rest of your country.

An amazing amount of misinformation in this post.

It's amazing that retards still spout this shit. No American children have ever choked on Kinder eggs, The government banned them because britbong kids were choking on them.

as a brit i get hard over these

>> No.7748632

I'm German and I gotta say, I'm heavily prejudiced against American food. When I see American candy I can't avoid thinking that it's cheap corn syrup with cheap artificial flavor and some food paint, marketed to scooterized fat people in bulk at Walmart. Sorry.

>> No.7748670

Man, do they still have those Altoids sours in Britbongland? They stopped making them in the States and I don't know if it was a global discontinuation. They were candy for my soul.

Those Ice Breakers sours are really good too though.

>> No.7748696

>altoid sours

Holy shit what DID happen to these?? I know they used to sell them at Target. Haven't seen them in years.

>> No.7748775

Fun fact, Hershey's lobbied the US government to change the trade definition of chocolate in order to legally be able to call their inferior products chocolate.

>> No.7748783

After a quick google search, they were discontinued because "there wasn't enough global demand" for them

>> No.7748790

Why does the government have the power to define the word at all? Isn't that kind of weird?

>> No.7748792

They don't anymore. A few years ago you could only get them in speciality shops in the UK. Now they have their own section in most supermarkets. It's great because I don't have to go to some shitty shop or import my peanut butter m&ms now.

>> No.7749568

I prefer European or Japanese candy, but some American candy is good. I like Reese's a lot, and while I don't consider Hershey's 'chocolate,' I do like how it tastes in a sort of trashy way. Most American candy is bland, tasteless alterations of the same non-food ingredients, though.

>> No.7750899

I'm so glad you don't.

>> No.7750919

"Trade definition", not dictionary definition.
If the goverment didn't regulate trade definitions, your "ground beef" would be full of pork, horse and dog and your cheese would be full of oil and saw dust... oh, wait.

>> No.7750940

Sour patch watermelon are great and some of your other candy is pretty good too, but American chocolate is nearly inedible.
I wouldn't eat Hershey's if you paid me $5 per bar, and Reese's is pretty awful too.

>> No.7750945

I get a boner for american food, so american candy gets me going pretty good, I usually lose interest in a certain brand after I've had it enough times tho. One thing I wish we had more of in england is root beer.

>> No.7750950

Fuck you, I like saw dust

I agree with this, the candy can be good, but it's mostly all the same

Hershey's uses intentionally soured milk.

Tastes good.

No, the memes have infested your brain. What he's saying is that women fucked American soldiers for Hershey's chocolate, black or otherwise.

I did, having heard it was much more diverse and interesting than british sweets, by which i mean the brand name stuff like nestle/cadbury, not traditional stuff.
