Favorite foreign candy bar and other non-American Nosh.

Aero bars, from the UK, are my favorite. I can find them at World Market here in the US, and they're very popular. They're named Aero due to the bubbles in the bar that are said to aid digestion and the taste.

I couldn't care as long as I still can get a hold of my Aero bars. It's the best candy bar ever!
