Payday Fails to Impress

A few months ago I went to a pub quiz with some colleagues and we were asked some candy bar questions. It prompted lots of conversation about a few and one of my work colleagues has since made sure that I try them. When B came for a visit she brought lots of Payday candy bars for H. I have to say, I was happy to see them since they have always been one of my favorites. I brought one in to work for this colleague and saw him recently and asked what he thought. He got that look on his face where you knew he was trying to say something polite but he didn’t like it. He told me he thought it was weird the way it was salty and sweet at the same time, which is the beauty of the Payday! His final response was, “I don’t think Britain is ready for that”, hahahaha. I found this website which looks to be Brits commenting on the Payday candy bar. It made me smile.

I'm not a big Payday fan, either...and it's a peanut thing. I don't really like to eat peanuts; love peanut butter (smooth of course), peanutbutter cookies, and of course, peanut sauce!

Can you get Coffee Crisps there? I had them in Canada and really like the crunchy coffeeish flavor.

I was trying to remember the name of the Coffee Crisp--knew it was coffee something--and when you google "UK Candy Bars," you get some really interesting websites, like this one: : )

Candy Freak by Steve Almond is a hysterical read about one guy's journey to find the candy bars of his childhood, and I highly recommend it as a fun plane read. Be warned that you need to take some chocolate with you, because the book makes you have an uncontrollable urge for something when you read it.
