    Toostie pops from America . You can easily buy toostie rolls from shops like Asia but I can't find toostie pops anywhere even in though American candy shops ? Can someone tell me why you can't get them in the uk?
    As in the lollies? The American sweet shops near me sell them, the grape ones are amazing

    it's available in a couple of places in the UK but probably at a ridiculously inflated price, unlike in Germany

    Wow, so cheap.
    the American candy store near me is massively overpriced. Jelly belly (my favourite brand of sweets ) sell dr pepper jelly beans £4 a packet but normal flavours in tesco are about £2 a packet. Not really worth it though.

    Where is the shop, I NEED to visit it, lol

    Jelly Belly costs £3.50ish in the American shop near me but the lollies are cheaper. I sadly still buy them and they have a Jelly Belly pick and mix! Anyway the shop is in Leeds

    The lollies are not as nice as the beans.
    do they sell chewing gum . There is the chewing gum called mentos aqua kiss . I suggest you try it if you can find it anywhere, so much better than the chewing gum you get in the uk .

    I'm not sure honestly, I don't go in that often. They have an online shop or if you live in York or Leeds they're the only cities they have shops in. http://candyhero.com/

    A fruit from Bangladesh called Amra. Its one of nicest fruit I've ever had, quite tangy! You can find people selling these on a stick in the streets.

    Having one of these on a hot summer day with salt and chilli powder lightly sprinkled on top is just simply amazing! :drool:

    I crave it every now and again but you can't get it over here :cry:

    I feel like I should start a business selling food that we have here in the states. As for me, I love wispa bars. And flakes. And Cadbury in general. I really want the oreo dairy milk.

    Isn't that the point?

    Check out cyber Candy or Amazon for most of these things. :ahee:

    Salty Watermelon! This stuff is legit. And really refreshing. Tastes exactly like the name. It really is the refreshing taste of summer.

    Salty Watermelon :erm: Not sure what scares me more, the fact that it's Watermelon (which I can't stand ) or the salty element

    Although thinking about it, it's like when you have salted caramel in that the salt can really compliment the sweet flavour in my opinion :yep:

    In Spain, I do recall having really creamy and heavenly chocolate and vanilla desserts. :sogood:

    And in Spain, they sell Romano pizza - olives, ham and mushrooms. The entire pizza is amazing. You can't even get that quality in the UK with M&S!

    And the pasta sauces - holy **** - the pasta sauces. Bolognese is really rich in flavour and so sweet in Spain, France and Italy. The pasta sauces in the UK are bland in comparison.
