Two ladies standing in the supermarket aisle looking inquiringly at a seasonal pile of Cadbury's chocolate Finger biscuits. One picks up a can, examines it closely , then turns to the other and says " How exotic ! ".

Further down the aisle a box of ' Toulouse ' Monopoly.  Does that quailfy as exotic ?


  1. I never realised that finger biscuits came in white and dark chocolate too. Very exotic, I'd say. My mother has a tupperware container of the common or garden milk chocolate variety that she keeps as 'treats' for the grandchildren. Sadly, Jonathan and Annabel, aged 20 and 17, fail to get excited when offer a slightly soft and stale tasting biscuit last thought of as a treat by a seven year old some time in the sixties...

  2. We suppose 'exotic' is in the mind of the beholder. A Toulouse Monopoly game might be more of a collector's item.

  3. Yes, very "exotic" items for some folks I suppose. To each his own.
    I do agree with scotsmad above, the Toulouse Monopoly could be a collector's item worth lots of money on EBay in the future. Did you buy one?

  4. This reminds me that I was given 'Dog-Opoly' that is still in its wrapper and never opened--I don't think that owning fire-hydrant or butcher shop qualifies as exotic, but like the Toulouse version, some might think so. :-)

  5. They look a little more exotic than they do here. Who knew Cadbury was so international?

    I agree, that Toulouse Monopoly could end up being worth some money. A lot of people collect different sets of the game here.

    1. Hi. Tried your server 3 times today but it comes up ' érror server ' each time.

  6. France profonde and Italy profondo - similar- you make me laugh a lot. Love from Susanne, Foxiie, Daisy and Kiri

  7. We have them in a flat package here. Maybe the sleek, blue tin makes them exotic.

  8. Mmmm, exotic fingers. Where are the exotic Flake bars?
