After Eight

Brand: Nestle Cost: £1.50 Found at: Morrisons   Once again, Nestle has me feeling deceived. Everything about these chocolates says elegance and sophistication. They come in a long, dark green box with a provocative name. Each square of chocolate is individually wrapped in its own little paper sleeve. When I reach for one, I feel... Continue Reading →

Julenisse

Brand: Cloetta Cost: 5.50 KR Found at: Coop   It's not a Nordic Christmas without strawberry marshmallow Santas! I actually really like these – they’re cute little marshmallow Santas in little, pink marshmallow Santa suits.

Julmust

Brand: Apotekarnes Cost: 14 KR Found at: Coop   It's a long time coming, but I’ve finally gotten what’s coming to me.   For years, I have delighted in watching non-Americans try root beer: gleeful in their reactions of disgust and horror.

Nut Butter Balls

Brand: Deliciously Ella Cost: £1.80 Found at: Morrisons   This snack is offensive. I am offended by this snack.   It is such a flagrant waste of money. Worse still, it’s genuinely unappetizing. It’s a luxury tax on health nuts, and while I love me a tax on the wealthy, this blatant highway robbery makes... Continue Reading →

Belgian Chocolate Dipped Chewy Florentines

Brand: Morrisons Cost: £2 Found at: Morrison's   In the flurry of holiday fervor and election drama, I decided to splash out on a holiday treat that simultaneously projects my liberal sensibilities. And what better option than a Florentine? This collection of nuts held together by caramel, and dipped in chocolate is truly a Brexiter’s... Continue Reading →

Crunchie

Brand: Cadbury Cost: 70p Found at: Tesco   There is not enough yes in the world to describe how I feel about this candy bar. I’ve been playing candy bar junior varsity my whole life, and I’ve just been brought up to the big leagues. This candy bar is positively phe-no-me-nal.   There are some... Continue Reading →
