    If a number 2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still number 2?

    It will always be number 2 because that's the grade of hardness in the lead which is actually graphite.

    HB is the softest.

    An Alberta woman brought back the Cuban Lunch bar and is selling out.

    For some reason, I went to Wiki about these candies and the amount of info and changes for these products is incredible!

    Then I remembered the Mars "Forever Yours". It was pretty old, since 1926 I think, discontinued and replaced by Milky Way "Midnight". The difference was the outer chocolate on the Milky Way was milk chocolate and on the Midnight, it is dark.

    Interesting story!

    Sounds similar to Hershey's Mr. Goodbar.

    There was a Cadbury's fruit and nut egg that I'd buy by the dozens every time I'd go over to Windsor from Detroit. It wasn't sold in the US, so I'd have to "smuggle" it in....LOL.

    I don't know any of the British bars except for the KitKat Bar.

    As a kid, one of my favorites was the "Sky Bar", which came in four segments with different fillings. I fondly remember that my grandpa would buy me one and he'd eat one segment and I'd get the other three. My grandpa was the bestest!
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Around the holidays, my boss would bring in Turkey Joints. I had never heard of them before and were darn good. Think I’ll go online and see if I can find them.
    Thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot.

    Long ago, I worked for a guy who was a recent transplant from northern England. He had mentioned that he really missed a certain kind of "jelly babies" (... I could swear it was Dunhill's, but I searched online for "Dunhill's Jelly Babies" and found nothing.) At any rate, on a trip to London, Ontario I found the candy he'd mentioned in a shop and bought some for him. He was pleased.

    Was there ever a candy called "Dunhill's Jelly Babies"?

    Wow, thank you Furryanimal. That was 45 years ago, and I was starting to wonder if my mind was playing tricks on me. I haven't seen them since, but then again ... I haven't been candy shopping in Ontario since then either.
