Hang on Gosho, I've just woken up - Mars was founded in the US. How can a product that's been made for approx 70 years be alien in the country where the company that makes them was was founded. smiley - erm don't make sense to me, anyhow I've added a bit to the title. smiley - oksmiley - smiley

There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

"It all started with Frank Mars back in 1911 when he and his wife Ethel started making and selling a variety of butter-cream candies from the spotless kitchen of their home in Tacoma Washington. In 1920, after visiting a local drugstore with his son Forrest, he thought what a good idea it would be if they could produce a version of chocolate, malted milk that could be enjoyed anywhere. The result was the MILKY WAY bar - known in Europe as the MARS bar. It was an immediate success."

The products of Mars USA and Mars UK aren't identical.

I rarely buy chocolate bars and sweeties (except for Green and Black's Maya Gold) but I don't think I've ever seen a bar of Galaxy chocolate (another Mars product) on the shelves here. And have you ever seen a 3 Musketeers in the UK? http://www.3musketeers.com/index.shtml Does that look like a Milky Way to you? That's cos it is.

I spent half an hour this afternoon weighing out half-pounds of chocolate covered malted milk balls from a 20lb box into those little cardboard containers they have here for Chinese takeaway, but if I called them Maltesers no-one would know what I was talking about.
