I'd like to go back to this earlier thread to report what a British
friend (male, early 30s, born and raised north of London, in this country
3-4 years) reported about British/GB and American candy bar names. I'm slow
replying, because he insisted on visiting candy stores to refresh his
memory. He says:
Milky Way (UK) is similar to 3 Musketeers (US)
Milky Way (US, regular) is quite like Mars Bar (UK)
Snickers (UK) = Snickers (US)
Haven't yet acquired Mars Bars (US)
He adds that all of these, he thinks, are made by Mars.
Wonderful excuse to eat candy when next in London!
