The chocolate purveyors have successfully blocked importer Let’s Buy British Imports from bringing Cadbury chocolate from overseas into the U.S., as well as other chocolate bars, including British KitKat, Toffee Crisps and Yorkie bars.
Reaction from the public has not been kind:
My half-Yank, half-Brit kids love both Hershey’s and Cadbury’s. They don’t need a stupid chocolate war ruining things
