Fishy's Other Stuff - American Food and Drink





So when I went to see Inbetweeners the other day it was completely sold out so me and my mate Trev decided to go to his home town of Ware, where we got a delicious Subway for dinner and I bought some stuff in this sweet shop that did imported American goods

All goods were refrigerated beforehand



Bubblicious Grape Raisin

Well this wasn’t refrigerated or bought in the store, instead my brothers girlfriend’s parents brought this over from Canada so I thought I would include it anyway

They’re pretty good, the flavour lasts longer than most other fruit gums.

Grape flavour is nice as well, it isn’t as strong as other grape products, which to me is a good thing. Us Brits aren’t used to the fake Grape taste whereas in America and Canada it’s one of the most used flavours


Snapple Mango Madness

Apparently they used to sell Snapple over here but it never really took off. Snapple’s name came from one of its first products, a carbonated apple juice that had a "snappy apple taste.

Nice sweet taste to it, it’s a mixed Mango and apple juice. Nice classic glass bottle as well. Like the old Orangina’s

Each cap has a real fact underneath, mine is “The average person spends two weeks of their lives kissing”


Dr Pepper Cherry

The drink was created in the 1880s by Charles Alderton of Waco, Texas.

I’ve always wanted to try US Dr Pepper as it’s different to ours. In America Dr Pepper is it’s own company whereas in the UK it’s a spinoff product of Coca Cola

This is Dr Pepper Cherry though, so I’ll guess I have to try the normal one another time. In fact tasting it now it tastes almost exactly like our Dr Pepper only a little sweeter

Kind of disappointed


Coconut M&M’s

Founded in 1941 by the Mars & Murrie brothers, after Forrest Mars, Sr got the idea during the Spanish Civil War when he saw soldiers eating chocolate pellets with a hard shell of tempered chocolate surrounding the inside, preventing the candies from melting. During World War 2 they were served in a cardboard tube similar to Smarties

Wow, I didn’t know that fact that’s amazing!

Why does America get all the good flavours of M&M like Pretzel, Mint Chocolate or Wild Cherry?

Anywho these are pretty good, they taste like mini Bountys but they have no real coconut in them, only flavouring, peanuts and almonds


Butterfinger

Butterfinger was invented by the Curtiss Candy Company of Chicago, Illinois, in 1923. The company held a public contest to choose the name of the candy. The name is a slang term used to describe a clumsy person, often in sporting events to describe an athlete who can't hold onto the ball

Ahhhhh Butterfingers. Anytime I buy American foodstuffs I always make sure to get one of these

Melt in your mouth and like the packet says “crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery goodness“
