Americans don't wear trousers, they wear pants. They don't use lifts, they take the elevator. They don't drink pop, they drink soda. And they certainly don't eat sweets, they eat candy. But, boy oh boy, what lipsmackin' candy it is. And thanks to your globetrotting friends at Firebox, you can buy a whopping great box full without crossing the pond.
Our American Candy box contains a star spangled selection of chocs and sweeties from the good ol' US of A. Ideal for homesick Americans, curious rest-of-the-worlders and chocoholics looking for any old excuse to order a box of calorific loveliness, this is US choccy at its finest.
Top of the heap must surely be the mighty Hershey Bar. More American than apple pie and the Liberty Bell combined*, this 227g monster will transport you to the land of the free the second you munch into it. Talking of Hershey, we'll also chuck in a Cookie & Cream bar for good measure. Yum!
Also included is a 3 Musketeers bar (think choctastic Milky Bar), a massive Tootsie Roll (number one Stateside chewy choccy), a Baby Ruth bar (sort of Snickers-ish), a Butterfinger Bar (crispety, crunchety, peanut buttery treat), some Tropical Fruit Lifesavers (fruity hard candies), a monster pack of Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups and some Pretzel M&Ms. Hot diggity doo!
There's probably some screamingly obvious reason why this delicious choc's popularity is confined to the USA, but we've been too busy scoffing to attempt working it out.
In fact, once you're surrounded by a huge stash of Yankee doodle candy you're liable to have a real nice day and forgive America for practically anything: beating Blighty in the War of Independence, saying 'erbs instead of herbs, the Jonas Brothers, cancelling Saved by the Bell, Paris Hilton...well, maybe not Paris Hilton.
*Yes, pedants, we know neither originated in the US.
