It's a sad fact that it's impossible to get Turtles over here in the UK! They have to be the nicest chocs ever, IMESHO. We have to get Canadian friends to ship over dousens (how does one spell that anyway?) of boxes of them occasionally and even then the price of shipping means that we don't do it too often :(

Why are chocolates so different around the world? I would have thought that in the westernised world, tastes aren't that different. And yet Hershey's insist on making chocolate that to my palatte tastes stale immediately. Odd that...

P.S. Back on the subject, Nestles are *really* taking a bashing at the moment in the UK over their humanitarian record. Or maybe that's just in the Student union shops. Who knows.
