    Fried like you would fry fried chicken, only it's not chicken you are frying. 

    Coat it in egg, then flour and spices, then throw in hot oil.

    Interesting. I don't believe I've had chicken fried anything except 'chicken fried steak' which was at a chain something or other so authenticity would be marginal.

    @Baelor you can't get Mars bars here in America, unless you like special order off the internet. Sad times.

    I like my meat deep fried but that's about it. Deep fried sweets aren't my thing. I drink enough to drown my liver, I don't think I need a bad heart to go with it

    ... What? Why is that?

    Edit: Nevermind, I looked it up, apparently it is discontinued and was renamed Snickers Almond. Thank you, Wikipedia.

    Also this amused me incredibly:

    (From Wikipedia)

    Mars bars have long been available in Canada, including limited edition flavours. Because of Canada's higher chocolate standards, the Canadian "Mars" is not considered a "chocolate bar" and is labelled instead as a "candy bar"

    They don't sell them here. I don't even know what it is:

    The Snickers almond is similar to a proper Mars bar but there are some subtle differences.

    @Rancoura: I assume Canada doesn't have the same issue regarding artificial flavouring that America does? It really changed the flavour of the chocolate when Nestle made the switch.

    @Baelor Because we carry a lot of American products here, I'm sure we still have issues with it... though thanks to media reports/the internet I like to think (or hope) that many of us read labels properly to see if something is "chocolatey" or "chocolate-flavoured" versus being made with real chocolate before buying a product. 

    Regarding us having "higher chocolate standards," I'm not entirely sure where that comes from, but I do know that we're generally big on exotic chocolates like Belgian and Swiss chocolate (e.g. Godiva and Lindt). At least, I've never been into a mall up here that didn't have some kind of gourmet chocolate/chocolatier store (and I mean permanent-lease mall space, not just little booths in the middle of the aisles).

    Also as a note, I'm speaking just for Southern Ontarians in this case. I've never been to British Columbia/anywhere west of Ontario, and only lived out east for a short time, so I don't claim to know what those people are thinking.

    My biggest problem with chocolate here in America is finding a good dark chocolate. People seem to think that 'dark' is only referring to the colour and not just the taste.

    No Lindt down there? I like their 85% pretty well.

    I've seen a little bit in the World Trade stores (or whatever they're called), but it's incredibly expensive compared to the other brands. Everything is just so sweet, though.

    Can get them here in New Zealand.  Good times.  Also instant diabeetus in a bag. :p

  • DelseaDelsea Member Posts: 105 Adept
    The real way to enjoy tim tams is to nibble off a tiny corner from each end, then drink your coffee/tea/hot chocolate whatever through it so it melts in the middle. Divine.

    coffee/tea/hot chocolate

    Worthy of a discussion in itself. Currently going through 2 different teas and trying out hot chocolate using white choc, for the longest time I only thought it came in dark.

    I don't know that white chocolate would have a very good taste as the main part of hot chocolate. Maybe I'm wrong.

It's because so many facets of the game are outright broken and protected by those who benefit from it being that way. An overabundance of gimmicks (including game-breaking ones), artifacts that destroy any concept of balance, blatant pay-to-win features, and an obsession with convenience that makes few things actually worthwhile all contribute to the game's sad decline.

    It's sweet tasting, it's almost like milk with sugar, just a bit thicker.
