How to get contraband Cadbury chocolate shipped straight from Britain

By Rheanna O'Neil Bellomo

To the dismay of expats and anglophiles alike, authentic British Cadbury candies have been forbidden to cross the pond since Hershey's filed a pesky lawsuit banning American stores from touching the stuff. The U.S. chocolate company asserted its exclusive right to produce said chocolate—using different recipes than the UK originals—under the Cadbury logo. But the result has far from satisfied cravings for the real deal. Enter English natives Robert Jeffreys and Rebecca Gerken, who found a loophole: supplying individual customers, not businesses.

Their candy-centric service, British Chocolate Club, delivers Cadbury chocolate and other highly sought-after English treats (Aero Bar, Toffee Crisp, Mars Milky Way) directly to your door. Choose from two types of monthly memberships—eight ($15) or 15 bars ($25)—then note your sweet-tooth preferences and wait for your package of hand-picked goodies to arrive. Cadbury eggs are not currently an option, but with Easter on the horizon, they'll soon be available. In the meantime, they can be ordered by special request.

We expect that the monopolizing Hershey's isn't too keen on this concept, so you should probably jump on the opportunity to replenish your stash of UK sweets sooner rather than later.
