    Default Cadbury's chocolate

    For the Brits and Caribbean forum members, I was surprised to find this morning that Super Pola on Independenciare now selling Cadbury's milk chocolate bars. I stocked up with my favorites: Cadbury's Fruit and Nut and Whole Nut.

    Normally I can only buy these when visiting the islands or a rare trip back home..

    Have you tasted it yet? I was very disappointed. Something to do with being bought by a US company.

    Yes a bit creamier and not as good as the Cadbury's I buy in the islands or back home, but even so more enjoyable than what I find around.

    Having checked the bar I bought in Pola, it was made under license by Hersheys and I guess that explains the difference.

    That was it - Hershey, which in my experience most Brits consider inedible.
    For good chocolate, Ritter sport, the square bars, are usually sold at Nacional and Pola.

    Ritter is wonderful chocolate. Especially the dark chocolate which is supposed to be good for you - in moderation.

    You nearly had me rushing to Super Pola to bring back my childhood. Then I was reminded that Cadbury's was taken over. I thought it was by Kraft. Is Hershey part of that group?

    Ritter sport chocolate is not American (it is German) and neither am I so I have no clue what you mean.

    Mendelez International or what was Kraft Foods (includes Toblerone) but not Hersheys.

    A thinner bar of chocolate but still worth the trip to Super Pola and goes well with a genuine Tetley cup of tea (real tea bags not the small ones on strings) bought on my last trip to Nevis in bulk.
