It's strange, isn't it? :-)

All right. I really had no idea of what I've been missing in the chocolate world until I tried to find which confectionery manufacturers were making the stuff in Sam's candy bar list (2426.shtml). And I didn't know that Riesens -- which I've never seen in Canada -- were made in Germany, not the States...
