Hi, there, Americans. I am a British teenager and in my quaint little town, they opened up a new sweet store. Now, this store is 50% Pic'n'Mix and 50% American sweets and snacks. Now, I recently spent some of my savings on this (£5) and I bought a lot of American snacks.
The first one I bought, was a Tootsie Roll... My first thought, was, "Wow. It's chewy... Chewy chocolate...?" then, my second thought was, "No, it's definitely chewy.... but not chocolate." Like, seriously... What is it? Is it caramel? Is it sugar? Is it cocoa? What?! So, I threw it away in disgust.
The second one, were Hershy's Kisses. Now, they were... okay. They weren't anything special, but, they had the taste of cheap, bitter cardboard chocolate. Y'know what I mean, the cheap Advent Calendar ones you get. Yeah, they weren't great.
And finally, the last one, wasn't chocolate, but a Twinky. Yup, one of those gross, "cream" filled sponges. I... I couldn't digest it. It. Was. Grim. Like, oh my god. I was heaving. Anyway, I took one bite out of it and was instantly outraged at what the hell I had just filled my mouth with (I swear to fucking god if you quote that...). Like, no. It was not cream, nor sponge. It was, at best, out of date milk in a mush. Yeah, I know, gross. Like, on what planet do you eat those things? I noped the fuck outta that 'treat'.
I had come to the first conclusion: American chocolate is bitter and has no cocoa and or sugar. The second conclusion was that I don't know what you class as good, but Twinkys ain't that. And finally, you have some weird ass shit in America. I didn't even include the other things I saw. Cake flavoured MnM's, pizza flavoured Pringles, corn dogs. WHO THE FUCK THINKS IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO RAM A HOT DOG ONTO A STICK AND THROW SOME OLD CORN BREAD SHIT ON THE TOP! NO!
Anyway, I love America. Like, it's an awesome place, but, the treats and snacks, nope. Bump. Dat. So, I don't want anyone to hate me, like, RANT. OVER. But, I had to say something. Also, I would REALLY like to know what everyone thinks of British sweets (but I swear to god if you diss Jaffa Cakes, I'll hunt you down.).
Thank you! :))
Edit: I have only had 2 quotes and, I'd like to point out... I'M A MINOR! Why? WHY?! I kid, I kid, I'm a minor, but, I know it's humor that I set up... :))
