General Chocolate question for Americans

Do you folks have Quality Street chocolates in the States? They usually come in a tin and are individually wrapped and quite delicious.

Just curious. Thanks

They can be found in British shops. For any other Brits in the States you can find English chocolate/biscuits (cookies) at Target around this time of year for a good price.

There is a shop downtown San Diego called Shakespear's Corner Shoppe on 3719 India Street between Winder & Washington (www.ukcornershoppe.com) that carries TONS of British goods and goodies! They also have afternoon tea on their charming patio!

mmm...chocolate

I'm notorious for eating all of the good Quality Street chocolates...I think it's the purple coloured ones I like best for some reason. Other than that, Toblerone...

Even Walmart in Canada carries Quality Street.

Toblerone and Kinder Milk Chocolate bars (The kind I have to dig out from the little German pastry shop, NOT the Kinder Surprise eggs) are simply irresistable.

Love that place.(And the pub) http://www.shakespearepub.com/content/flash/holder.html
Its in Mission Hills. I live on the hill just behind it. Staggering distance from a British Pub! What more could I want? They also have the best Fish & Chips in San Diego.

Yep, we have Quality Street here in Canada.. I have a friend in States and wanted to send them something that they can't get down there.

I love the strawberry filled ones.. and the orange ones..
