    Mounds is just the coconut mix covered in Dark Chocolate.
    If Almond Joy was covered in Dark Choc, it would be better.
    Oh, I see. Yes dark chocolate is better. Less likely to get a migraine from dark chocolate too.

    Literally round the corner from The English Shop is a Scottish pub and restaurant called “Drumbar”:
    Drumbar | Lillatorg.nu
    They serve Fish & Chips …... is there any message you'd like for me to give them?

    No I have had some of the very best fish and chips in Scotland, they fry Mars Bars and Pizza, the English as a rule don't.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Fried Pizza??

    I've come across Fried Mars Bars, but I reckon it was more of a short lived gimmick round here.

    I love Pea Fritters - although you only seem to get them in the South.

    I was in the centre of town just now and I thought of you. So I went into Gray's American Food Store to see if they have Mounds. I found the Almond Joy and was standing there looking to the right and left for the Mounds when the owner (an Englishman in his late 30's) stepped up to ask if I needed any assistance. I was in for a very distressing dialogue:

    “I see that you have Almond Joy”, I said, “but I wonder if you also have Mounds.“

    “Mars? Yeah sure, over here.“

    “No, not Mars. Mounds.“

    “Yeah Mars Bar.“

    “No, not Mars …... Mounds, M-O-U-N-D-S. It's similar to Almond Joy but it's made with dark chocolate.”

    He picked up an Almond Joy and started reading the ingrediants aloud to me, as though he thought I had difficulty understanding English. I stood beside him patiently, respectfully - waiting.

    “ …...... Nope. No dark chocolate.”

    “Yes, I know the Almond Joy isn't made of dark chocolate. I'm looking for Mounds that is made with dark chocolate. It's the same people who make Almond Joy.“

    “Peter Pan?“

    “Peter Paul.“

    “I don't think Peter Pan make any other products.“

    “Peter PAUL.“

    “Yeah, Peter Pan Almond Joy.“

    “Peter PAUL Almond Joy.“

    “Yes, Almond Joy. It's right there in front of you.“

    “NO, I want Mounds.“

    “Mounds? Never heard of it.“

    (no shyt!)
