** Taco Bell has made its way over to the UK. They ''did'' try to break into the UK market previously in the early 90s, with a few branches around Greater London, but it proved too unpopular to be profitable. According to ThatOtherWiki there are five in UK, and one is on an air-force base. Same goes for Wendy's, which was scattered around London in the 1980s.

* Blu-ray recorders (as in, [[RecycledInSpace a device like a VCR, except it uses recordable Blu-ray media and records in HD!]]) are at the moment only found in Japan, the UK, and countries with strict anti-monopoly laws like Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand. This is probably caused by the devices' price range (Blu-ray writers still aren't cheap), and because of [[NewMediaAreEvil concerns over the rampant piracy that could result from their usage]] (Japanese over-the-air television does have DRM). But the more likely reason is because recorders using removable media have fallen out of favor due to the mass adoption of digital video recorders with hard drives (which are more convenient, and can easily handle HD video), as well as streaming services.

** Eventually averted with Malteasers, as Hershey at one point owned the U.S. trademark for "Malteaser", a similar product. Mars sued Hershey in court, leading to a settlement where Hershey's trademark was withdrawn and Mars started directly importing the product for sale at movie theaters and allowing specialty shop sales.
