    Went into a local, new little wine shop the other day, "Put a Cork In It" and there on the shelf was a nice collection of none other than - THORNTON'S!

    The merchant was not impressed that I knew (and had had) Thornton's. LOL. She was used to people coming in and having to be "educated." :spring:

    I've not seen it any where else here.

    You know? I never even looked! I just assumed it was. If I go back, I'll check the manufacture. The merchant was quite self important with her "British Chocolates" so I'm guessing that they were?

    Didn't look at the price either! LOL! Some info source I am, eh? I can't have them right now (nor the wine, I was looking for a gift) so I didn't pay much attention to the details. They had boxes of them, and then little individually wrapped candies. Not sure what they were, little chocolate rolls? Oh, and some toffee bits?
