Note: Peppermint Crisp is a chocolate bar made in South Africa. It may be tough to find outside South Africa. If you can’t get it in one of the online stores selling South African goods, try your local World Market (if you live in the US). Failing that, a peppermint-flavored chocolate bar will probably do the trick.

The same goes for Tennis biscuits. South Africans call cookies “biscuits”. Tennis biscuits are shortbread cookies. Try to buy them online. A good substitute is Graham crackers.
