Whenever any of my close friends travel to Europe they know there's no point in asking me if I want anything. The answer is simple: Cadbury's, Lindt, Milka and as much other European food as you can carry

Enough of the Hershey bashing, though. I grew up on it and still prefer it to American Cadbury's....
Order this item and TRY to say the same thing.

Hershey killed the Cadbury line in the US, so that's not saying much. They used to make a good product--decades ago. I grew up eating Hershey's chocolate, too. I'll continue to bash the Hershey Company because they've destroyed the classic American candy bar.

But they've maintained profits... Until people vote with their wallets Hershey will keep making junk.

People still buy Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Kit Kat, chocolate syrup and Twizzlers, among other things. I'm a little sad that the classic Hershey's chocolate bar is now a plastic like, chocolate flavored disappointment. I'll eat a Twizzler once in a while, but I won't eat their chocolate.

Very true. Cadbury's from Britain is so much better..a creamier chocolate.

I miss Nestle's chocolate bar. I was never a big fan of Hershey products.

Yup, went over to my local supply shop, an Indian/British grocer and stocked up.
Grew up on Hershey's till I met my English husband. Quite a revelation!

I still bought Hershey's once in a blue moon, but not anymore! Big meanies!
