The French cafe down the road sells Carambars! I am unreasonably excited by this!

Having typed that, I suddenly want a Curly Wurly. The shop across the road has them! HURRAH for multiculturalism! (I accept that this is feeble multiculturalism, but I did just have dinner at the Turkish place and respond to a web survey from the Japanese bar, so it's better than my sweet selections make it sound!)

Man, I haven't had a Curly Wurly in ages. Now I want one.

Indeed. I was very happy to notice that there were Twisters in the supermarket the other day too. Creme egg goodness hidden in a candy bar.

I am so proud of myself for making it through Easter without consuming any creme eggs! Alas, four gold bunnies …

There was creme egg pudding. It was lethal.

I stand in awe!

It was definitely pretty yum.

I had a cadbury creme egg for the first time this year! It was...sweeter than I expected.

Speaking of multicultural chocolate, I finally found a store that stocks Tim Tams in my area. :D

YIPPEE! I hope they're not too expensive: they're not good enough to pay a fortune for ;-)

Is a carambar a caramac??
blamebramptonblamebrampton on April 13th, 2013 03:07 pm (UTC)
No, it's more of a chewing sweet, sort of like a mini Highland Toffee, but in different flavours … I'm having a total mental blank on the British equivalent (Brain of sago!), I can't remember if Milkos and Redskins are Aus only– I think they are. They're the sort of thing you're given as a treat when you're little, and I was, so I had a fit of happy nostalgia and bought myself two for being brave about my thumb. Then gave one to Mr B, which means I also deserved my Curly Wurly ;-)

I really have to find a source of caramacs here now that you've reminded me.

In my efforts to become educated on these treats - a google search tells me I can get 1 curly wurly for the price of $3.34 and 20 pieces of carambars for $7.90 (US dollars) lol

The upside is the search for carambars directed me to a website Essentials from France. Which I have a feeling I will spend many hours perusing and probably ordering from.

That is outrageous price gouging on the curly wurly! But the carambars might be worth it ;-)

Oh, I am glad that site is not based in Oz, things could get very bad very quickly!

lol

they already have here. :P

Good lord, this is the equivalent of me paying Fortnums prices for PG Tips in Paris!

Le carambar is one definite cornerstone in the edifice of civilisation.
