Every time I'm abroad, I try to find snacks that I can't find back home. Specifically, every time I'm in the UK, I pick up a bag (of four) of Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons. Cadbury Dairy Milk has been my favorite chocolate for as long as I can remember, but the selection in the States is seriously lacking, especially compared to the selection in England. I never even knew the Giant Buttons existed until my first trip over there!

Cadbury, as well as some other UK-based brands, have some seriously delicious candy offerings these days, and while some of them can be found in the States, many of them are exclusive to England and the surrounding area. (Another of my favorite brands, Kinder, is an Italian brand prominent in the UK, but I included it here because it's close enough.) The Kinder sweets, the Cadbury sweets, and all the other bits and bobs here are ones I picked up on my last trip to London to share at work and with all of you to convince you to either track them down online and order for yourself . . . or just plan a trip to England to pick them up. Traveling for the sole purpose of eating is totally acceptable, right?
