I could have pointed you to places where your fiver would have been better spent.

I'm sure you could've. I'm truly a sucker when it comes to Ebay.

Well, my Cherry Ripe's turned up (well packaged and in mint condition... A++ for the guys feedback!) What can I say? I liked them. Lots. Snapping it in half and seeing the redness I half expected it to taste like some kind of fruity breakfast bar, bit it didn't. Really, really liked it. Not loved... just liked lots. Gave a bar to the kids and got the thumbs up there also. Anyone know why they're not available over here? I mean I wouldn't put them anywhere near my top 10 but I'd definitely have them again... not 3 for a fiver though!

Although they have been a national favourite for decades in Australia, Cadbury has firmly refused to launch them over here. I think the claim has been that they're 'not for the UK market' - meaning we cannot be trusted to enjoy them enough to make them worth the effort. (I'm sure they're MADE over here though - or WERE).

The obvious thing to do would be to trial them - surely??
Old but spicey!

Indeed. Like I said, I would certainly try them again.
