European. Most of those products I've never seen. Some of them I've heard of. 11/16, missed brand names of course. The filled pastry, those sticks, the waffle-chocolate-bar, the pink and purple raisins and those caramel filled chocolate buttons. Btw, I can't believe so many people missed that last one. Here you get adverts for it on almost every single commercial break! ARGH.

Kinder eggs are not legal in the states (small toy for choking). So I think there are many places that don't import Kinder at all even though the Buenos would be fine. I'd never seen them in the US before moving to Mexico. Of course, I am now addicted . . .

weirdly I hear americans talk about kinder eggs all the time, apparently they are nuts for it. And I havent heard anyone from europe talk about it ever. There were some other products that seems extremely popular in the us cant remember them, but lets say the enthusiasm surprised me. OW yea nutella being one. (with some reactions you would think they would faint if they see a jar or would kill someone over it, totally crazy)

And before I get trashed ( allready see it coming) I dont mean anything by it and it has nothing to do specificaly with being american. It is just what I noticed and was very much surprised by. The extremely enthusiatic reactions over and popularity of some products that over here people think "meh" nothing special.

(btw personally I dont get why like half of the planet gets excited over any type of chocolate anyway, it is ok, it doesnt taste bad. But that is about it for me haha, apparently I miss that "it-makes-me-feel-fantastic gene" haha

Or here: It's a traditional campfire treat - place a piece of Hershey's chocolate bar on a graham cracker, top with a hot-from-the-fire toasted marshmallow, and top with another graham cracker. Mash. The hot marshmallow melts the chocolate into a gooey, lovely mess that makes you want some more - s'more.

Nov 18, 2018
But why so specific? When I've had them it doesn't mattter...
+1
level 76
Nov 19, 2018
I think it started as a camping thing - I had my first one at Girl Scout camp - and Hershey bars were easy to carry for hiking and camp food, so I guess it just evolved from there. (When I was young no one had ever heard of granola or protein bars. We carried Hershey bars - which could be a real mess in summer heat.) I've eaten s'mores all my life and I don't ever remember eating one that wasn't made with a piece of a Hershey bar, although I guess any chocolate would work.

I made a quick search about Pocky, since It looked so similar to what in several European countries is called Mikado, and I found out that in fact they are exactly the same thing: http://pocky.glico.com/world/mikado.html I think you should allow Mikado as an answer! :)

Thanks for accepting Mikado for Pocky. However, the Nutty Bar looks like a very generic chocolate wafer, and almost resembles a Kit Kat. Maybe some leeway would not go amiss on that.

Lack of knowledge on its own is never a good thing(unless we talk psychology and stuff that can leave traumas etc I can imagine there are cases it is better not to know..). Though not necessarily a bad thing either. Knowing the lyrics of some song doesnt make you a better person>

the way you obtain the knowledge can matter though. DO you know them cause you ve eaten it all yourself reguarly, or because you have heard others about it.

Upon further review Little Debbie and Fieldstone are owned by the same parent company McKee Foods and Little Debbie also calls them Nutty Buddys as well and their web site calls them Nutty Bars but the picture has Nutty Buddy written on the box.

Jun 18, 2019
If they are straight we call them zuurstokken ( sour sticks, but there are all kinds of flavour like cinnamon aswell) but I think we only use the english term candycane for these curved striped ones.

And not that we use the same word as in english, but we are conscious that we are saying an english word at that moment. I guess because it is not really a part of our christmas traditions.

looked it up, what we call zuurstokken you call stick candy or candy sticks.

i would ask to accept "bueno" and remove "kinder" (all by itself) as a solution. In fact, kinder is the umbrella brand owned by Ferrero and used to sell snack and candy products dedicated to a younger target. So accepting "kinder" (and not "bueno") is like asking to name a car model (e.g. Jeep Cherokee) and then accepting as an answer only the generic brand name "Jeep" and full name "Jeep Cherokee" but not the model name "Cherokee"

Adding another Midwesterner who travels within the US with some frequently and has never heard of a Kinder Bueno. Only thing I have to relate to that is the Kinder Egg which I thought were banned, or some silly thing.
