I'll settle for Whole Nut

Every time I go to England, I am stunned and delighted by the huge variety of candy bars they have. There is a veritable cornucopia of chocolate confections, most of which are impossible to find in the US or in France.

Unfortunately, none of them are particularly spectacular. I seem to buy a Toffee Crisp every time I hike it over to the Isles, forgetting every time that I don't particularly like them. The idea of a Toffee Crisp is so appealing that I forget the reality. You have things like Aero, a straight chocolate bar with air bubbles in it, or Cadbury's Fruit and Nut, which has raisins in it. It astonishes me that in an enormous candy display like that the candy, despite its exoticism, turns out to be less appealing than its American counterparts.
