loool....yes

ugg boots they are half the price and sell for x2 as much on ebay as they are the 'genuine article'

They also have types not available here

If you are over there for a while see whats available - stick them on ebay with buy it now / reserve and only buy the ones that have sold well (also you can offer the size of show that the winner has ) risk free lol

Enjoy

No I'm nt talking about Cherry Ripes, this is the actual Bounty bar but cherry flavour. The packaging is very similar to the dark chococolate Bounty we get here (red/pink).
