    In fact, that's a great idea Joe. Have a chat with the rest of your merry band and we can do an international care package exchange :D

    Done!

    I think we're going to handle our end in two phases:

    1 - Compile a list of our members that are interested

    2 - Everyone on our sign up list will be able to request one item, maybe two if it's small (candy, etc)

    After that's done, I'll send it to you to disseminate amongst your crew. :D

    I do have one request! A bag of crack, er...I mean Peanut Butter M & M's. Those are sooooooo nice, but we can't get them here. I usually smuggle a bag or two in my suitcase when I'm stateside! =P~

    Peanut butter M&M's? I've never had those. Do you mean "[link=http://www.hersheys.com/products/details/reesespieces.asp]Reese's Pieces[/link]"?

    They're from Hershey, PA <------ The land of chocolate and Amish. :p

    No, I mean M&M's. What, you never saw those? They're delicious. Then again, I'm all for the Reece's Peanut Buttercups also. I've never had Reece's Pieces, but I'm sure they taste the same as the M&M's, so they're cool in my book too! :)

    I shouldn't have them, but I've always been partial to Milk Duds. I love them!

    I'm sorry but as some one who has dedicated their life to sampling every kind of chocolate Ive ever come across, AMerican choc, just doesnt compare to ours, IMHO. Unless some one knows better, I'm willing to sample some :D

    I will give you that, British chocolate is better. Although, chances are you've had orange cream, or strawberry cream chocolates...but have you ever had pineapple cream? Mmmmmmmm. =P~

    So what are violet creams anyway? Is that a cream filled center filling? I wonder what Violet tastes like?

    Do you have sweets called Palma Violets, theyre a it like love hearts but are purple and taste of violets (obviously). Violet creams are dark choc with a violet flavour soft centre and are yummy. I'll put some in the package.
