Three words - Amarula Liquor Bar. Y'all probably never heard of it, and neither did I until about 2 years ago. Excuse the rant, but there's a whole story behind how I got to try what I claim is arguably the best candy bar out there. So no **** there I was, alone in South Africa on another boring business trip. My company makes industrial management software, and I was sent down to Cape Town to start working some local industrialists into buying our software.
I have a severe sweet tooth. As in, I just can't go without sweets. My metabolism is superfast, and I'm about as lean as a leaf, even though I keep stuffing my face with sugar. So, the first thing I did when I situated myself at the hotel was to look for candy. The first day....no joy. I've managed to find some local stuff that was meh at best. I purposefully stayed away from Mars and other crap since it became too pedestrian for me.
Then, on the second day, my hosts took me out to dinner over at the Grand West Casino. It's a magnificent place that left a great impression on me. Here's what it looks like https://www.gamblingafrica.com/landcasinos/southafrica/grand-west-casino.asp
. Anyway, I'm sitting there at the table and I feel a sudden urge for some candy. I ask the waiter if he has any, and after saying no to all of their desserts, he begrudgingly goes to the kitchen and brings back a box of Amarula Liquor Bar. Guys, tasting that candy after 2 days in a foreign country and a total of 4 days without a good sugar rush, felt like heaven. No joke, it was a borderline life-changing experience how good it tasted. If you're ever in South Africa, make sure to get you some.
