The funny thing is, you Americans rave about this chocolate, or that chocolate. But you guys put so much sugar into your sweets, it ruins the taste. Hell, I went to Philly when I was about 12, and even the damn bread was sweet. Whenever I'm Stateside, I pretty much live on the most sugar-free stuff I can find, and Liptonice.

Try some UK imported chocolate. It's a completely different taste.

These statements are all true.

It's one of the reasons I can't eat most American pizza. Sugar in the crust. It's ridiculous.

Agreed. Homemade pizza is the way to go.

My favorite candy is Reese's Pieces. Spree can go kill itself.

Yeah, I know. Most of what we call chocolate would be called something far less charitable in Europe. Most American chocolate gets about as bad a rap as American beer. European chocolate has a different mouth-feel even. I still enjoy the experience of eating M&Ms (I haven't tried them recently). I would sometimes freeze them to enjoy the crunchiness.

Oh and Spree. Wow. Haven't had that since high school (every damn candy drive (computer club, science club, band, you name it) was hawking that like crack (because it was for school clubs/programs, the teachers would allow it, within reason)).

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels.

Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the "loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.

I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theater of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.

When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3x5 card reading, "Please use this M&M for breeding purposes."

This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this "grant money." I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion.

There can be only one.

Agreed. I always have it when I'm on holiday in Austria. And it's soooo cheap over there
