Crunchie: a candy bar from the UK...
My wife discovered a new British candy bar called Crunchie when we were in London a couple weeks ago. I'd love to get her one as a little gift, but I can't seem to find it. I looked at that british store on 2nd street in Santa Monica, but they only had Twirl and Flake bars. Any ideas?
Violet Crumble is an Australian Candy confection and is NOT the same as a Crunchie.
As a French Quebecer in LA i look for chocolate bars of my home, they just happen to be the same as the brits.
Go to this amazing site for all the chocolate you can handle.
the shipping is worth it when you consider what they charge you at the local import stores for a single bar!!!!
Try CostPlus World Market - they have tons of English foods and candy bars there, including the Violet Crumble, Flake, and lots of other Cadbury goodies.
It would help to know where you live. A lot of places carry Crunchie bars, but they often pop up at the strangest locations. Not only do they have them at the Continental Shoppe and regularly have them at the Cost Plus World Markets, but I run across them at tiny markets all the time. A recently closed shop at the bottom of the Century City Towers carried them. I also see them at Sri Lankan Delights, a small market in Tarzana (between Vanalden and Wilbur).
The worst thing about Crunchie bars is the mark-up. No matter where you go, they will always be over $1 each.
You also may find Violet Crumbles at different stores. I believe they are an Aussie version of a Crunchie bar. They have a similar honeycomb center, but I always found the chocolate the be waxy and not nearly as good as Crunchies.
Finally, there is always resort to Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Cadburys-Crunch...
