Britain and America enjoy a special relationship, everyone knows that, but the two countries do have their differences.

People on Reddit have been discussing some of them, suggesting what they think Britain does better than America – some suggestions may surprise you, others probably won’t.

1. 28 days of paid holiday per year AND cheap air fares to Europe – Duck Magic

2. Candy on the whole, Chocolate in particular. Especially Cadbury’s Dairy Milk bars. But that is a taste preference of mine so I guess that’s more subjective – Ravenor1138
