Might I suggest the following from Canada:



A Canadian staple that is usually given out at Christmas and such. My favourite. They also have them in dark chocolate (if you're in to that kind of thing). 


If you're ever in Canada or come across them in the UK - get them. I know in London in Covent Garden there is a "Commonwealth Shop" selling merchandise from Aus, S Africa and Canada. They have them there along with Coffee Crisp.


(As an aside: everything else in the 'Canadian' section of that shop is actually American )

They are little pieces of chocolate-covered pecan heavan. With caramel!  They sell them now in two-piece packages for abou $1.38 CAD after taxes (about .68p). $1.38 is a lot for a chocolate bar which usually go for $1 after taxes or $1.15 after taxes.  It's not the same though buying them in the two-piece packs. I have to buy the 48 piece tin version ($7.99 before tax).


YUM.

If they taste anything like most Nestle chocolate I'm buggered if I'm going to pay Cybercandy prices for them!

Be wary of the knock-offs though. There are some U.S. brand called 'Slowpokes' and an almond verson called 'Almondillos' in the 'shape' of armadillos.


Not the same.


Trust me: Turtles are good. Screw maple syrup and Celine Dion: THESE are Canada.

I get most of my bits in Cybercandy from the bargain corner. Stuff that is just past its sell by date which they sell off cheap.

My mummy is going to Canada next March, so I am going to get her to get me some of these. They sound lush.
