I had a friend go to Germany, anyhow, she brought me back a chocolate bar. Alpenmilch Chocolate, I think. Is this the, um usual candy bar sold in stores? Like hershey's in America? Milka is 100% better than hershey's. After trying milka, hershey's tastes.... blah.

Just let it flow down the English Channel.

If my calculations are correct, it will pass the pillars of Hercules, then, pass Sicily and arrive in Montenegro through the Otrant doors during the next week or so.
Then, some of my cousins will attach it to a pigeon, and send it to Serbia, where I reside.

Or, I can just go to the supermarket, and buy one :D

Unfortunately Milka is owned by an evil corporation called Nestlé.(:o

Probably Kraft is also owned by Nestlč. Everything is owned by Nestlč :-O

That's why I decided to buy only domestic, Serbian products, which I also recommend to you ;)

I remember, being in the ex-Jugoslavia in the summer of '87, a canned food called "Pileka Pasteka" or something. It was more of a croatian product, I guess. Rings a bell?

Nestlé is a Swiss company(http://switzerland.isyours.com/e/guide/lake_geneva/nestle.html). In America they make Chocolate bars like Crunch,KitKat, and Smarties. They also own the Wonka label. Nestlé isn't owned by Kraft. Rather Kraft is the second largest food company in the world in terms of revenue.

I would agree America chocolate bars taste like brown shit compared to some European Chocolates. The reason for this inferior quality of chocolate is no doubt the result of poor taste on the part of the average american consumer. Than again the average American will eat anything that is within grasping range if advertised enough. :D

Milka is quite good, but so are Brunberg (Finland), Fazer (Finland), Marabou (Sweden) and Kalev (Estonia).

I don't think I've ever had Milka. My favorite candy bar is Milky Way.

Milka? Not that bad, but... the best chocolate, that you can buy in shops, is Freia (https://www.freia.no/produkter)!

114762

I don't know any chocolate better than Freia (excepting home made chocolate, of course)...

Milka is pretty good. It's not too sweet, melts in your mouth and is smooth.

Marabou is quite good as well.

Never had Freia.

Freia is Norwegian, Marabou is Swedish, Milka is more spread around Europe. All of them have "Mondelez International" as label nowadays, so they should have some similarities, I suppose.

Actually Milka from Germany doesn't taste like Milka in Romania. The one in Germany tastes much better. It seems lots of companies have double standard when it comes to Western and Eastern Europe. Everything tastes worse in Eastern Europe (including Czech Republic, they were complaining about it!), of those international products produced for certain countries. I can't eat chocolate in Romania, I don't like it.

While I was in a grocery store today I saw a new kind of chocolate near the register and bought it. It tasted terrible. I actually felt sick after eating it. It is a Snickers but made with Maple and almond butter.

I occasionally satisfy my desire for chocolate with a Hershey bar. :)

My all time favorite candy is Mon Cheri but they don't sell them in the USA anymore (or none of the stores that carried them carry them anymore). :(

Update: Walmart sells them online but it is $24.80 for 15 small pieces. Only 3 left! That's too much money. I'm frugal. :P

edit: It's a 2 pack, so that is 30 pieces! Almost bought it. :fsad:

Thank you for the suggestion! I've never heard of Frellsen, but next time I'm in Denmark I will sample some. :)

My wife used to buy them in California at World Market.
Some German delicatessen had them too.
