They say it’s important for you to eat a country’s food in order to get a sense of their culture and history. I take this kind of deep exploration seriously. Very seriously.

While Cadbury is technically a British company, they make a lot of chocolate in Ireland. And that’s where we ate it. A whole lot of it. I would say we average a candy bar or two a day- split between us.

The Toffee Crisp was all right. Not a lot of toffee flavor but it had some rice krispy-like action.

Galaxy chocolate ROCKS. Apparently it’s Dove in a new outfit. YUM.

Nick’s fave was the Twirl– a chocolate covered flake. An intense chocolate experience, indeed.

Here’s my one true love- the Crunchie. Honeycomb covered chocolate…delicious.

So what did I learn through my culinary adventure through Ireland?

Chocolate is good, no matter where you are on the globe.
