A Blast From My Past!
When I was a teenager, I used to hang out in Canada alot. One thing I used to love eating was Canadian chocolate bars.... it just tasted, well, different.
Today I went to Canada to visit family (more pics on that in another post) and lo and behold while buying my "French Bread" in the Metro Supermarket I ended up in the candy aisle. And there I found all my favorites, all over again. They happened to be on sale for 4 for $3.00 so I grabbed some for myself and the kids to try. The only new one I saw was Snickers Believe, I have no idea what that one is all about-but I got it anyways. The rest of the bars have been around for ages, and haven't changed much.
How many do you recognize... give me a shout out and let me know!
UPDATE: I think it is super neat that some of you remember these and have tried them. I am also pretty amazed that some can be found in other parts of our country and in Guatemala too~! Here I am, about 100 miles from the Canadian border and I can't even find a single bar in my stores here, even the ones closer to the border! I will be going up again in the fall for the foliage photos, and maybe I will buy some and have a giveaway ;) I haven't tried any of them yet, since I don't think chocolate would make a good breakfast-but I am most interested in the Snickers Believe since it's a new one to me. I, like Rachelle, loved Mars bars with Almonds and thought they were non-existent but am glad to know they can be found in Wal-Mart. It looks like I will be heading to Wally World soon to check it out here.
