For those of you who don't know, I was born and raised in Scotland which is where I developed my sweet tooth. Who am I kidding? It's not so much a single sweet tooth as a whole mouthful of porcelain candy chompers.

I now live in the US, but am fortunate enough to have a little store close by that sells nothing but candies and food imported from the UK. On a recent trip, I picked up a pack of Minstrels. Made by Galaxy, whose chocolate is every bit as good, if not better, as Cadbury and Hershey's, MInstrels are circular pieces of chocolate coated in a hard candy shell.

The catchphrase for this sweet treat is, "The chocolate that melts in your mouth, not in your hand." I'd love to be able to verify this, but they are never in my hand long enough to test the theory. The standard bag is 42g and hold about 20-25 candies, which seems smaller than I remember, but isn't that pretty much the case with everything these days? A little pricey too, but that is to be expected as they have to be imported.

If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend that you give Minstrels a tryas they are better than just about every other candy on the US market.
