White Lions, Chocolate Lions and Peanut Lions

Have any of you heard of Nestle's candy bars? I was introduced to the White Lion when we went to Tallin in February. I hadn't seen any of the "Lions" here but have since found all 3. Of course, the white ones are the only ones I'm interested in and, of course, they are the most scarce. But they are made by Nestle's so I'm hoping they are available back home in another year.

Hey, mom,

I found this on Wikipedia:

"A Lion Bar is a chocolate bar made by Nestlé. It consists of a wafer, caramel and crisped rice covered in milk chocolate. It was introduced by Eric Nicoli of Rowntree's in the 1970s, after a trial in the Dorset area in 1977. It was in some areas known as Big Cat until the late 1990s. When Nestlé took over the brand, the recipe was changed as was the packaging.

In Europe, both White Lion and Peanut Butter Lion limited edition bars have also been available, as well as a "king size" variety. The bar is occasionally found in the U.S. and Canada in European import shops."

So, looks like you're going to have to stock up on them and bring some home if you want to enjoy them when you get back! :)
