Had a small box of Belgian choccies last night, so I am feeling pretty sickly at the moment.
Plus, it is getting quite cold now (Perhaps not as cold as where you are, but I am working in a shop where the door is left open :(

How does the norwegian chocolate compare to Cadburys in taste (do you know)?

^ It's kinda difficult to describe the taste and to compare it. But I do find English chocolate (and other candy) a little too sweet sometimes. Maybe there's more sugar in it?
Or perhaps I'm just (finally) growing up and not having such a sweet tooth anymore. :-k

I've had Hersheys Chocolate before, and that was not as sweet as Cadburys, it was a little more bitter, and I didn't like it. I think I just prefer European Chocolate (mainly Cadburys, Belgian and so on). I'd love to at least try Norwegian Choccie though, but I have no idea where they sell it.

One of my friends told me about a great site http://www.cybercandy.co.uk. They import chocolate and candy and stuff from all round the world. Not ordered anything from them yet but I'm thinking about it (mmm cookie dough kitkat and jolly rancher pop or mountain dew yummy). You might be able to get Norweigen choc from there Jake.

No, no Norwegian stuff. They had some Swedish and Finnish stuff there, but that wasn't chocolate :?

Oh, well kinda close-ish. I bet somewhere sells it though.

American chocolate is horrible, it's really plasticky. It's got a different fat ratio to ours so that it doesn't melt as easily. I know British chocolate has a lower cocoa content but I think that's what i like, it's too bitter otherwise.

Hersheys - I hate it. Far too bitter. I prefer the milky creamyness of british chocolate over Hersheys (though Belgian gets my vote still, usually because of the variety of flavours in selection boxes :D )

Well, my tastes in chocolates have changed over the years from liking fruity creams when I was little to hating them to liking them again - lol. And nutty ones, hmm, depends, not always that keen but a hazelnut whirl is nice. Always love caramel ones.

Definite no nos - coffee creams, nougat, turkish delight (bleurgh chocolate covered slime!! lol), praline

The only truffly kinds I like are those reeking of alcohol!! lol ;)

Not very keen on dark chocolate, can't stand white chocolate.

Fave one?!! Hmmmmm, orange creams maybe. Or caramels. Fudge is nice too. :-k
