    The Great Escape is an Easter movie?

    It’s a movie for any bank holiday. They fit it in whenever a Bond film isn’t on.

    EPG: electronic program guide??? Whoops, programme.

    I’m with Linda. Easter candy isn’t a big thing (neither is Easter) here in Idaho, and I order good candy from the shop I used to get it from in the Philadelphia area. We start eating it when it arrives. The peanut butter eggs are almost gone, and I take credit for that.

    I’m glad someone gave the title of the movie. All I could think of was that Steve McQueen movie that isn’t “The Blob”. Heh-heh.

    That depends upon whether or not you’re allergic to nuts.
    A lot of American food companies don’t have dedicated production lines for each individual offering in a product line, and so what they’ll do is produce a run of a particular variety, clean the equipment, and then produce a run of another variety. Because of this, there’s a hypothetical risk of cross-contamination with nuts, such that a lot of companies are legally required to put warning labels on their packages to this effect.
    But if you simply don’t like them, then several confectioners have a variety of candy bars and other confections that are either straight chocolate or have other add-ins.
    With Hershey, you have their main chocolate bar (be careful, as the “chocolate + almonds” bar uses a similar wrapper) and a line known as “Kisses” that consists of drops of chocolate (you can get plain, almond, and milk chocolate / white chocolate swirl). On occasion, you can also get a bar of white chocolate with milk chocolate-flavored cookie bits inside, but it’s been my experience that these bars are far more prone to melting than regular chocolate bars.
    Nestle offers their Crunch bar, which has puffed rice mixed in with the chocolate. They’ll also frequently offer a variety of dark chocolate bars under the “Cacao Reserve” sub-brand; I seem to recall the percentage of chocolate going as high as 90% on one bar. Nestle also makes the Wonder Ball, a Kinder Egg knock-off meant to be compliant with US safety laws (in that the “prize” inside is usually another form of candy rather than a toy; nanny-state types have all but prohibited actual toys coming inside chocolate eggs because they fear that kids will be so stupid as to think the toy is also candy).
    M&M Mars has M&Ms, a series of brightly-colored chocolate buttons with candy-coated shells. Plain M&Ms are solid chocolate, but you can also get peanut, pretzel, and puffed rice centers in addition to limited edition and seasonal offerings.
    We also have Rolo here, and if you’re OK with peanut butter then we have Twix (you might have heard it called “Raider”) and a variety of offerings from the Reese’s corporation (which specializes in confections made from chocolate and peanut butter).

    Oh, if you know where to look, you can actually get chocolate-covered Peeps now.

    I just don’t get the connection between Easter and The Great Escape. I guess British tv people have more imagination than french-canadian ones. Here, (well, on Quebecor-owned networks), it’s Charlton Heston in “The Ten Commandments” followed by Charlton Heston in Ben-Hur. If there is a Saint-Peter at the Pearly Gates, I’m sure more than one guy showed up there completely baffled to see someone who doesn’t look at all like Heston!

    Wow, that was very informative! Who says you can’t learn anything reading the comics?

    Milky Ways don’t. Neither does 3 Musketeers.
