A recent discovery.
American candy bars are not very interesting.
Having tried the many and varying kinds of chocolate bars, candies and confections here in Prague, as well as in Madrid and Stuttgart, I can honestly say that American candy – though wholesome and good – is pretty boring. Save a few exceptional rarities, the American candy bar is basically the same composition of chocolate, nuts, caramel and nougat filling. That explains why the Snickers bar is the King Candy is our homeland and other chocolate bars fall to the wayside of personal preference and odd taste. They are the dependents of picky eaters.
Don’t believe me?
Someone mailed me a box full of chocolate from home (for which I shall be eternally grateful) and, because I have an extremely odd obsession with food and because I was a little bored, I decided to do a photo shoot.
