Why didn't anyone tell me about the glory that is a Violet Crumble?

Out of sheer curiosity, I picked up a Violet Crumble candy bar at the local gourmet store. I had no idea what to expect. Was it violet flavored? Did it have the consistency of a Butterfinger? What exactly was I getting myself into?
Something wonderful. I can't exactly explain the insides. Puffy and crispy, yet eventually chewy. Sweet and almost an underlying caramel note. Smooth milk chocolate covering the whole thing.
Why didn't I know about this before? I envy you Aussies who have the V.C. at your fingertips...as I need to search one out here in Texas.
Sigh...I want another...
Man, I know, those things are delectable. Our mom used to put them in our stocking when we were a kid, so we got to cherish them one time a year. You can sometimes get "honeycomb" in odd-shaped block form at those homestyle candy shoppes, but rarely is it the light consistency of a Violet Crumble.
Jason's Deli used to sell Violet Crumbles as well. I would often pop in and buy several at a time when passing one.
