Sylvia, two of us have already mentioned Cadbury's toffee eclairs, but I assume we're not on the right track because the OP is still looking for the caramels! Personally, I've never seen anything here in the UK like what is being described, but it's years since I've looked at toffees.
It's also a derogatory nickname they have for us British!
Yes, those are what I mentioned in my post! I don't know if these are what the OP was looking for, though.
Sounds like a variation of old fashioned British toffee eclairs, caramel, with a choc centre, sometimes also covered in chocolate. Try searching for Cadbury's toffee eclairs, and other British toffee manufacturers such as Nonsuch.
Scotland and France were known as the Auld Alliance, collops is the Scots way of saying escallopes. Never with bacon, though!

Coronation chicken was supposedly 'invented' for Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation in the early 1950s as a nod to the then British Commonwealth's Asian influences.
