    If you have a b&m bargains shops near you they sell twizzlers for like £1.99 per foot lol. It's like a rope and it's huge
    :eek: That sounds amazing. I don't have one of them near me, I think I'll have to go find one though

    Kinder joy! Not kinder eggs, the one that has a plastic shell and one half has Nutella-like stuff in it. I'd include a picture but I've completely forgotten how to.
    I am almost daydreaming about these! I used to get them in Italy, seriously why don't they exist here?!

    This thread made me walk across Brighton on a very hot summers day only to find the shop that may have had the Fanta pineapple was out of stock.

    Apfelschorle. Ich liebe es.

    And certain types of beer such as Helles. You can get them here, but you have to go to a speciality wine shop and they're far dearer: €2.50-3 in a cheap Munich bar, £2.50-3 in a wine shop here.

    It's good, Have lived here for 4 years(Sussex Uni chemistry graduate from last week).

    There's a shop Cyber Candy in the lanes where i can buy a bunch of cool american drinks/Sweets. Saw Sour patch kids there at lunchtime as well and was very tempted.

    When i was younger the Orangina you got in france with all the nice juicy bits was awesome,. they did introduce Orangina in England later but it's definitely not the same. it's not even the awesome bottle shape.

    Don't be upset if you miss your firm offer and come here. It's a good uni. I had free choice of unis and i chose this one. Brighton is a lovely place to live and if you're good you could probably come visit the TSR office as well.

    What subject you looking at studying?

    Looking forward to Engineering

    I don't want to go to my firm to be honest. I want to drop out, go into clearing, and go Scotland or Wales! Dunno why

    Minute Maid Lemonade :love: I know you can always make your own lemonade, or use lemon squash or whatever, but nothing is as good.

    Also, Milk Duds and Chex cereal.. the list goes on.
