When I was holidaying in New Zealand I bought a few slabs of Cadbury Chocolates but those around me found it odd as they said these chocolates are available in India. I explained to them that the milk that we get in India is of poor quality compared to what these cows in New Zealand yield and so the chocolates manufactured in NZ would be far superior. Would you import stuff that is available in your country and what would it be?

Yes and when we were there in 2015, one could taste as many different chocolates in chocolate-making establishments.

@skysnap Yes, you're right. Imported ones do not have a monopoly of taste or quality.

That's interesting. So there must be a Cadbury's factory in India?

There was a Cadbury factory in a nearby town when we lived in our other house. I have everything I need in the USA.

Cadbury units have closed down in certain countries, including India now. I suppose US will certainly have stuff of good quality.

@allknowing We do. I still like certain things from other countries, however.

@DianneN What I do not like is that these brands when made in countries other than their origin are not the same.

I would not import anything from another country, but my mother did import Wedgewood China for me from another country since the imported Wedgewood was cheaper than the same offered in the USA.

@allknowing Yes, I checked out the Wedgewood china exactly like mine at Marshall Field's and yep, same quality, but far more expensive at Marshall Field's.

@Corbin5 Strange that the same quality should be rated differently

So tell me was the chocolate bought out of country is better tasting than the ones at home? I think you might have to have a taste test side by side. I do like certain chocolate because it tastes better than other brands but if its the same brand here in Canada and in the states it usually tasted the same...

I bought Whittaker's chocolate instead. The supermarkets at that time sold some of the chocolate at high price, and I was able to get it at a lower price. I bought a few big bars of chocolate home, and ate them slowly.

Cadbury used to be manufactured at that time in India and so those around wondered why I was buying them at NZ

@allknowing Personally I like Whittaker more than Cadbury. I always find Cadbury a bit too sweet and less chocolate taste.

I would have been inclined to think the same way and consider it a pointless purchase. Nevertheless, what you say about the milk is a good point and with this being a major ingredient will make a significant difference.

There are so many products the world over but one should have a nose to pick the right one.

@allknowing I agree, but personally I would have missed the obvious factor in this case.

No, I wouldn't. I don't think I've ever had a Cadbury chocolate. We have them here.

No would not buy them in another Country to take home. I would eat them whilst I am there. Cadburys is also available here too. So not much point in bringing it home.

I wonder why they look amaze? I mean every country has chocolate for sale, but it doesn't mean you can buy to other countries of your favorite chocolate specially when you are already there.
