Musings on Bounty Bars

Can someone from the International TFP community eat a Bounty Bar for me?

They don't usually sell them in the United States, though Wikipedia tells me that they're available at most NYC newstands.



Do they still sell Bounty McFlurries at the McDonalds in Paris and Budapest?


I love these things. I could eat a box of them right now.



Hmmm maybe I'll order a box online. Wait... they're no longer vegetarian? What's with candy manufacturers using animal rennet? Maybe I'll never eat a Bounty again. It is a sad thought.

I must resort to eating a Mounds - which aren't even made by Mars. Stupid Hersheys (Peter Paul) almost-substitute. At least they come in dark chocolate.

They are easily acquired in NZ. In fact, my desk is a bit of a mess... I might be able to find a wrapper around here if I look hard enough... ok, maybe not, but certainly out in the trash. I love them.

Bounty Bars and McFlurries are easily procured here.

But I don't recall ever having a Bounty Bar. I think they're just chocolately coconut, right?

Mounds should be everywhere here, considering there is a Hershey's factory within a three-hour drive of here.

Ohh god the bounty bar. I had it once and the coconut in it made it taste like paper. No thanks. As for the McFlurries, yeah, they're OK.

Um, I've been eating them since I was a kid. You can find them at any world market here in Chicago burbs. I eat one at least once a week. You want some?

Bounty bars are easily available in Canada. In fact we used to be able to get another type of chocolate coconut bars in Canada. I just can't remember what they were called.

I do believe they sell Bounty Bars at Bites, the convenience store in our student union. They carry a variety of international candy bars; I usually go for the Lion Bar or a Cadbury Flake. I'll pop in tomorrow when I'm on campus and check. I haven't had one in a long time; I think the last time I ate one was on a visit to Canada.

I would certainly be willing to send you some, gg, if they have them in stock!

They sell them in my local supermarket in the International foods aisle, where I get my HP Sauce, Lyons Gold tea, and Jelly babies. Never a big fan of them, but they're not bad.

Yes! Lion bars have also been my favorite since childhood. I'm really glad they still make them. They also had ones with camels on them. Forgot the name.

EDIT: Found it. It's called Picnic. Loved the commercial back in the day.
