    Who decided to create strawberry-flavoured chocalate? It is the result of the classic "tasty+tasy=tasty" (which is not even true). Gross!

    I've had it imported from Japan before.
    In the UK we have a little chocolate not unlike Chocolate M&Ms called Smarties... What I had from Japan was more like Smarties than M&Ms in shape but was pink/strawberry chocolate on the inside - I liked it.
    I had it when I was 16/17 studying Japanese in Coulsdon College and our Sensei showered us with treats to reward our good work near finals.
    Also, our class was invited to the Embassy of Japan during mid terms, that class was awesome, donned a kimono and enjoyed an authentic Japanese Tea Ceremony (like Matcha Tea & cake) in our honour as their guests. That was cool.

    What is the difference between Smarties and M&M?

    I hope you liking strawberry-chocolate was a joke. :D

    The shape and the taste of the chocolate.

    A Dutch supermarket's domestic home brand version of the Dutch breakfast food hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to you and me) I liked a lot because it was the same taste as the chocolate in Smarties, and the brand name chocolate in that country, I liked, but it reminded me of Cadbury's more than Smarties, in taste.
    This.

    I like/bought both the brand name and the AH domestic brand hagelslag back to England.

    There's a passage in one of O'Brian's books in which Maturin is looking at a cow and wondering why she looks so sad: 'Is she sick, or despondent? Or is she contemplating her offspring being turned into blanquette de veau?'

    I've never quite fancied veal after reading that.

    I hate canned vegetables except corn. That is the only veg I will eat out of a can. Everything else is mushy and not the right color. :bleh:

    @Ritter, you have to put salt and butter on your popcorn! I used to have a friend who would put sugar on it. You could also try the cheese flavored popcorn or caramel popcorn.

    Those varietees look quite good and alot more fun than the joke of a snack that is pop corn.

    It does not really matter if you add butter and/or salt; pop corns are boring and tasteless. Add salt and butter to styrofoam and you'll have the exact same thing. :p

    DEATH TO POP CORN!
