Way back in 2007, when I first moved from the UK to the US, I knew I'd be trading in my Cadbury's, my Galaxy and my Toffee Crisp for Hershey's, Dove and Three Musketeers. I knew American chocolate was laughably poor, and in the last six years I've not hidden my contempt for the stuff.
But I'm making an effort to wipe away years of chocolatey prejudice and start over, and I'm taking my adventures into the world of American candy to the internet in the form of a video blog called British Candy Authority, which I'll be doing every week for Kill9 Studios (whom some of you may recall I co-wrote and produced Boomer's Day Off with back in 2009).
Here's the first episode, where I have a taste of an American standard in candy, Hershey's Milk Chocolate.
New episodes will be posted every Wednesday at 9am PST - about 5pm if you're in the UK. Have an idea for which candy bar you'd like to see me review leave a comment on the video or send a tweet to @BenPaddon.
