We have peanut butter here in the uk but they don't seem to have made any related sweetie products....I wish they would!This thread
on another board I post on might be of some interest!
That's hilarious. Yep, it's not that there's no PB, it's the sugar and chocolate components that are missing. Of course any Brits who really love the stuff could always make "Buckeyes" (which I guess you'd have to call conkers, or horsechestnuts): mix up PB with confectioners sugar, roll into balls, dip in melted chocolate, and chill until firm. Nice. Or, request them in this swap!
My BF at Uni used to always want me to bring PB Snickers, which they don't make any more, as well a s PB Twix, which they still make (and cartons of duty free cigs but that's another matter). Candy is so much better in the UK though. What I REALLY miss is Sainsbury's thick & creamy vanilla yoghurt. Nothing here compares!
