anyone miss candy from their home country?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

If you're after UK sweets & stuff, then this is the place to go: https://www.aquarterof.co.uk/

Must admit shipping cost is a bit eye watering, but watching a Khmer have their first rhubarb & custard was worth it. :hattip:

Your other problem is keeping the ants out of the sugary stuff as they won't all be wrapped in plastic like domestic sweet. Best to get airtight jars to put sweets & things in, I picked up a few from Thai Huot, all good.

I'm too busy eating fresh tropical fruit, French pastries, Italian desserts, homemade mango-date bread, scones with honey, German chocolate, etc.

I'd eat a twinkie if paid $100. Well, maybe $50.

Plenty of processed food at the various supermarkets. I miss Cornish pasties sometimes and strawberries that don't look half dead when you buy them. My Mum brought some Cornish cheese over once. That was a treat.

Bagels from NY suck, though they're admittedly probably better than anything currently in the kingdom.

Not Candy so much. Amber and her sister Chrystal are another story.

So you would a twink for $100, bargained down to $50....??

Made me laugh sir.... But then I'm a Brit

Twink is gay slang for a young man in his late teens to early twenties whose traits may include: general physical attractiveness; little to no body or facial hair; a slim to average build; and a youthful appearance that may belie an older chronological age.

Mmmmm - can't get over American Terms for Chocolates and sweets.
