and nut crunch.

I haven't seen them in the shops yet but saw an advert in a local shop "flier/flyer".

LOL I was wondering the same thing.

Having spent some time wondering the only thing I could come up with is this....
 I think it's because they all believe they have the best tasting chocolate and that every centre ever made would taste better surrounded by their particular brand of chocolate. What they don't seem to care about is the fact that by copying each other all they do is limit the choices available to the customer, us.
I think their time and money would be better spent trying to come up with new flavours and new centres that make their chocolate selection different from everyone else, and I think it's a huge pity that they don't think the same thing. lol

Ahh well. More reasons not to buy Galaxy chocolate.

Mars has always been the most boring chocolate company in the universe. All they have ever done is invent different ways of presenting chocolate and toffee/caramel, chocolate and some moussey/nougat texture, chocolate and nuts. That's basically it. The most inventive they've ever been is Maltesers. Chocolate and honeycomb is anarchy for them!
Old but spicey!

Well they do a Bounty bar too but I think that was actually a Peter Paul product that Hersheys now make as the Almond Joy and Mounds bar in the United States. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almond_Joy

I know what you mean about their lack of imagination though.
They seem a very secretive company that does not interact with their customers.

And yet the Cadbury's let Forrest Mars borrow their chocolate for what would become the Mars bar. What the hell happened after that? Did he water it down or something?

Galaxy used to taste, er, shall we say uniquely milky, but these days it's pretty vile.
