UK & Ireland people - need help with sweets!!

Hey there,

what the hell is the name of the sweets that come in a package that are little squares, have a biscuit part inside the chocolate and come in either a toffee(maybe it's caramel actually) or chocolate centre. I think the packages might be red for one kind and green for another, they are longer than a pack of rolos and this is going to drive me mental. I want some, and need to tell my friend what to bring back but can't think of it. If you can help I'll send you some shitty north american candy. yay.


pls help.

LOL yeah, Munchies for sure! and I had these way back in the 80s as a kid and Im SO sure they taste a lot different these days.

and Mintolas are now bloody called Mint Munchies, which SUCKS!
Bring back the old name!

Sicy mentions foreign sweets, my fav has to be Swedish chocolate.

Toblerone chocolate is by far the best, so is Milka and Lindt! Swiss Chocs I do not have a sweet tooth but those are yummylicious!

I heard someone mention a KitKat at work one day and ever since I have really, really wanted a KitKat. Now I wouldn't mind a pack of Munchies.

I never much cared for KitKats until I tried the Canadian version. It's beyond comprehension how much better they are than the American ones. In fact, I stopped at a Costco the last time Jess and I were up north, and bought a box of 48 of them.

So much chocolate

I've never tried American, or Canadian, ones. They were something I'd never have eaten at home and now I can't find them here - I've been informed they do sell them here though - I really want one

KitKat Chunky's are even better, but I prefer the European ones to Canadian ones. I first discovered them when I was over there 8 years ago, and like you, had to bring a huge box of them home with me.
