British expats have been left stockpiling chocolate after US confectioner Hershey's reached an agreement that will stop the sale of British made Cadbury's in America.
Hershey's owns the license to produce chocolate under the name Cadbury's Dairy Milk in the US, and said the sale of British made chocolate infringed on this.
Many Brits living in America prefer the British made version because differing food rules mean the US version has a different recipe. In Britain to be classed as chocolate there must be a minimum of 20% cocoa solids, in the US the lower limit is 10%.
Are you an American chocolate lover or do you think British is best, let us know:
Hershey reached a settlement last week with Let's Buy British Imports to prevent the import of products similar to brands such as Cadbury's Dairy Milk and Kit Kat, which Hershey's sells in the United States.
Toffee Crisp and Yorkie bars have also fallen foul of the agreement as Hershey's claim they could be confused some of its other products.
The move has drawn criticism from British expatriates, among others. One tea room in New York, Tea & Sympathy, have started a petition against the ban, which has already received more than 28,000 signatures.
