Photohunt: Candy


Candy bars

The weather has been gorgeous this weekend. The sun has finally appeared and the temperatures are up above 60. It was time for a trip to Lakewold Gardens again. The Rhododendrons were in bloom and the whole garden was a riot of color.

They have the most interesting garden/gift store. Many tempting plants and garden tools. They also have a fine selection of international candy bars. I snapped a shot for this week's Photohunt hosted by tnchick.

Starting on the left, we have the Yorkie - popular in the UK and made by Nestle. It has the most unusual tag line for a chocolate bar - "It's not for Girls". It is based on the fact that it is big and chunky.

Next is Flake - available in UK, Australia and South Africa. A flaky round bar of chocolate with an unusual history. The label is also in Arabic.

The third bar is Violet Crumble. I just love the name. The bar is popular in Australia.

Wow I thought this was your stash, good thing I read thru the entry.

wow. I wish I had the chance to try some of those.

I'd love to try a few of these...totally interesting

Interesting that a garden store sells international candy. I wonder what is inside the Violet Crumble and why it got the name Violet? Is it purple inside? Great choice for photohunt this week :)

Me again :) Did you have that link for the Violet Crumble up there before? I guess I missed it but just saw it and now know why it is called the Violet Crumble. Funny that wikipedia says that these candy bars are popular in Hawaii. This is the first I have heard of them. I might just be dreaming about the Violet Crumble tonight :)
Too bad I can't eat chocolate anymore. If I could, I might just search the island for a bar.

I'd be interested in hearing if you find it. After reading about the bars, I should have bought them to sample them but I didn't. Maybe I'll just have to go back to the garden. :)

Interesting candy bars with unusual names. Great post for the theme!

Oh I love Violet Crumbles! They are just like Crunchies and are honeycomb coated in chocolate. Yummo!

Great PhotoHunt entry! :)
