Up to 20 FriH$ + Bonus to know your favourite Candy





Captain Fertile
THE OFFER OF FriH$ has now ENDED! You are welcome to keep posting but no further payments will now be made.

Hi,

I would like to know what is everyone’s favourite candy from his or her own country. So I also need to know which country you are in. The candy does not have to be available JUST in your country, it can be a world-wide name as long as it is commonly available in your country.

I am especially interested in European and Asian countries but anyone apart from the UK would be great.

By candy I mean anything that comes under the candy banner (gum, chocolates, jelly sweets etc etc)

There are 4 scales of payment available:

Your top 10 candy = 5 FriH$
Your top 10 candy plus a description of each candy = 10 FriH$
Your top 20 candy = 10 FriH$
Your top 20 candy plus a description for each candy = 20 FriH$


Descriptions can be quite short but they should be original (but I understand if one or two of your bars have been covered by some else and a new description may be difficult – I will get suspicious though if the majority of your list is made up of candy from other people’s lists)

See my example below for a Twix Bar:
Twix – From the Mars Company, crisp biscuit covered in caramel and then coated in milk chocolate.

But you can make the description as long as you wish and if you can include the name of the maker of each candy that would be even better but if you don’t know for sure don’t worry about it.

So I need to know which country you are from and your favourite candy whether it be top 10 or 20 with or without descriptions.

This will be open until I get enough responses.


Thanks

PS Does anyone know if a previous thread on FriHost may have covered this? I searched but could not find it, if you know of one let me know and PLEASE if there is another thread please do not simply copy off there.

I would just like candy no chips or crisps, ice creams or popcicles etc.

If you can come up with the rest of you list I'll happily pay you.

HalfbloodPrince - Paid 5F$
RE: Your list should be a little more specific if possible.
Gum (what brand and flavour)
Jello (is this a type of candy? If so what maker and flavour?)
Chocolate bars (Mars, Galaxy, etc..) (I am looking for specific make of bar you like)
Skittles
M&Ms (which type, peanut, chocolate etc.)

Damn, this is maybe half of the candies that I really enjoy now as an adult and from my childhood.

It's clearly obvious that through this list, it mainly consists of candy with milk chocolate, hehe. I prefer it over dark chocolate, but maybe I should give that another try as I never really enjoyed it as a child. I guess it's for more complex pallets that you usually learn to develop as an adult.

Hopefully this helps!!! This post also help bring back memories of my childhood. Very Happy

Oops, my bad, hehe forgot to list my country. I'm in the United States. Looking forward to the day I visit other countries to taste their candy delectables and maybe my list will grow much longer. Laughing

@xyberz & william
You both should have received payment. Any problems let me know. Many Thanks for both of the superb lists.

Anyone else out there from Australia, New Zealand, The Far East, Asia in particular?

Which reminds me - is the candy the same in Australia as it is in New Zealand? What I mean is do both countries get all the same candy?
darvit
I live in the USA, but I'm originally from the Philippines... would that count as Philippines? Wink I'll be giving you descriptions of Filipino candies. Smile

1. Choc Nut. A crumbly chocolate candy bar made up of milk chocolate and peanuts. The peanuts are dissolved into the chocolate, thus giving it a nutty flavor.

2. Curly tops. Tiny cups of light milk chocolate, manufactured by Ricoa.

3. Choco Mallows. Fluffly white marshmallows on top of chocolate biscuits, covered with milk chocolate.

4. Cloud Nine. Caramel, peanuts, and nougat, covered in milk chocolate.

6. Nips. Candy-coated chocolate, that looks like a thinner, relatively flatter M&M's, but tastes different.

7. White Rabbit. Soft, vanilla, taffy candy, with a very thin "paper-like" [yet edible] outer coating.

8. Orange. Orange, jelly candies covered in sugar. Shaped like orange slices.

15. Flat Tops. Flat version of curly tops. [see description]

16. Candy Braces. A thin, wiry piece of hard candy that children often stick on their teeth to mimic orthodontic braces.

17. Pocky. [Imported from Japan] Very thin biscuit sticks, filled with either chocolate or strawberry inside.

18. Pintura. Colored gum balls that would leave your tongue colored [hence "pintura" which means "paint"].

Meh.. I've run out. XD

I'll continue with Western chocolates that are popular in the Philippines. Smile

19. M&M's. Candy-covered milk chocolate.

20. Gummi Bears/Worms. Jelly bear-/worm-shaped candies, sometimes covered in sugar.


Hope that helped. Smile
Captain Fertile
@darvit
Paid!

Great list, I have sent you your 20F$ plus a bonus 10$ as you supplied candy available in the Philippines, one of the countries I was having difficulties with finding candy for.

It was okay that you included candy from outside the Philippines as long as it is available there - I need to know as many candys as possible from any country as long as they are available there doesn't matter where they are made.

Great stuff, thanks.

I have paid you plus an extra 100F$ as promised in my PM and another 50 for all your help. Applause

Most of the Candy we get is very similar. However in some cases, brands are repackaged and new logos are designed for the Irish Market or vica versa.

Example...

Typical packet of Crisps or Chips are you call it..

So I am gonna give you a bonus for finding images and brief descriptions for me of candy I don't know at all.

30FriH$ Paid

With Thanks

PS You have also introduced me to Salmiakki which is something I have never heard of before but is just the kind of thing I was hoping to uncover. Something quite unique to your part of the world - you are a STAR! Dancing

If you have questions ask them


Smile
Captain Fertile
I have sent you 25FriH$ for the info and pics (I have all those product pictures already because they are pretty generic but you are not to know that). It was interesting though because you are the first person to cmment from the Netherlands so that is another country to tick off the list.

Thank you.

Are you just curious that you wanna know this or are you doing some more with it?

I am very close to completing a website to run a club for international adult members to swap candy with each other cheaply and safely. The site is open to everyone but club membership is restricted to adults to protect children from certain elements on the web they might otherwise fall prey to.

Despite being based in the UK I am very keen to support the ethics laid down bu COPPA - Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
http://www.coppa.org/

Not because I have to but because I believe it is worthwhile and will show me to be a responsible club host, hopefully others will follow my lead and many more chidlren will be saved from unsavoury situations some find themselves in.

Anyway, back to the nice stuff - The site also has an extensive library of candy from around the world so members can see what candy is available and from where so they can decide which members to approach for an exchange. (there is a lot more to the club but that is the main important bit).

That is why unusual candy only available in specific countries is important, it is the kind of thing lots of members will want to try for themselves.

Aside from this widely available candy such as Kit Kats and Twix bars etc. can taste entirely different when produced in Europe than those made in, say, the Americas due to locally available produce and food laws being different. So it is still important to hear about any candy bars available in your country as well as the unique ones.

There is a lot of other stuff I don't really want to go into just yet, things that will make being a member of the club an enjoyable, rewarding and valuable experience.

Once the club opens I will be looking for visitors and members fairly quickly, initially these visitors and members will be there to check out the site, point out errors and ommisions (particularly in the club Candy Library) and even contribute items for the club. Basically they will become the bedrock of a thriving community.

I hope that clears up my strange requests for candy info.

It is an exciting time, there is still much to be done to see this dream come to fruition but we are nearing the time it all goes live.

Aww man! Then I can't join Sad
Captain Fertile
EVERYONE is welcome to join in the site and the general open fourm (I am trying to think of plenty of things for eveyone) but memberships to exchange candy and join the Members Only area of the forum will only be availble once you are old enough to have a Paypal account.

I am going to check if the minimum joining age differs from country to country and will adjust the minimun club joining age accordingly.

I still hope you will still visit the site onve it is released and consider membership once you are old enough (whatever the age).

EDIT* I have checked around and the minimum age is indeed 18 years old. How for away from that are you (if you don't mind asnwering of course)

Oh right, you'll need PayPal. And for PayPal. you need a credit card. And for a credir card you need to have a work...

And I'm 14.
Captain Fertile
I guess the good news is that by the time you are old enough I will be established and you will have a wealth of other members to swap candy with and all the early teething problems will be ironed out before you join. Very Happy

The point of only accepting members with an active Paypal account is more a matter of accountability rather than making charges. So members are traceable somehow if they abuse the trust created within the club.

Much appreciated, my first French reply I think and it was very helpful. I have sent you 40F$ for this invaluable help.

I will check out the site you quote for the french candy, hopefully I will be able to read it somehow. Laughing

Thanks again and the 40F$ should be with you now.

Well guys I have just about added all of the candy that has been submitted so any more would be welcome.

Especially some good lists from:

Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Middle East, Far East, Eastern Europe & Russia.

Plenty of FriH$ waiting for some good lists. Especially from these areas
If at all possible please supply names, description and a picture would be great - I am willing to pay extra for these details and items from the above countries because I am having difficulty tracking candy down even when I have a name, unless is is something international like Snickers etc. (I can get pictures and info easily on these). It is the more local candies I am having trouble with.


Any questions - Let me know.

P.S. @xyberz - Any more lists from you would be welcome too. Very Happy

Any question - Let me know.

Here's a great one from Japan! One of my favourites!

Gaba - Mental Balance Chocolate


First, here's the Japanese website (don't skip the intro - it's cool!):

http://www.ezaki-glico.net/gaba/intro.html

And here's a good English description of the product:

Could be just psychosomatic but I think the stuff actually does work.

Take care,
Eyvind
