Kop-kops are not licorice flavoured. Licorice is disgusting. They are aniseed. Whcih is odd because I didn't know that until I googled 'kopkops flavour' for your edicfication, and I would have said that aniseed was disgusting too. But they are coated in sugar and I only eat them when my taste buds are Black Death-impaired so maybe that explains it. The same method of intensive research tells me that winter candy is also aniseed. How odd.
The shrimps are, disconcertingly for fish lovers, raspberry flavoured. Or more accurately, chemical-replicating-raspberry-flavour flavoured.
And, while we are having this trans-altantic conversation, could I just say: tootsie rolls. Iconic US product, referred to in mountains of literature. First experienced by this Brit last November. Huge disappointment. What's that all about? Small bits of chewy gloop. You have no standing to criticise kop-kops. Oh wait, the US is the home of Hershey Cookies and Cream chocolate is isn't it? I bow at your feet. Love that stuff. Can't get it here.
Or Top Deck. Now this really is a mystery. Top Deck is Cadbury's chocolate which, until they sold out this month to Kraft was a quintessential British Quaker company. They produce Dairy Milk chocolate and Dream white chocolate.. In South Africa you can get Top Dec, which is Dairy Milk with a layer of white chocolate ontop. No where else have I found this delicacy. Except inexplicably, in a supermarket in the tourist area of Paphos in Cyprus who import it. How come we don't get it here?
