You're in Europe? Go directly to the chocolate aisle in the nearest grocery store! You will quickly realize that the Reeses and Hershey's you've had your whole life are not that great, and there is a whole new world you'll about to enter. You should probably plan on bringing a whole suitcase back of chocolate.

You can't go wrong with Milka Chocolate. You can find Milka in most countries in Eastern Europe and their flavors do not dissapoint. Even just their plain milk chocolate is to die for. Milka is also an Oreo lovers dream and one of the most popular chocolates they make.
This is an Estonian chocolate brand, so if you find yourself in Estonia on vacation load up on it! My favorite flavors are white chocolate blueberry (and I don't even like white chocolate usually!), mint cookie, dark chocolate grapefruit and milk chocolate with macadamia nuts. I actually could just write a list of all of them I have ever eaten because there is not a flavor that's bad!
The classic Kinder Surprise egg is a classic that everyone needs to try. The creaminess is amazing and you also get a cool prize on the inside! Don't worry, you don't have to be 10 to love these. Kinder also has other great chocolates like Kinder Bueno, Kinder Maxi and Happy Hippo.
Holy cow. Talk about variety! From white to dark, salt to sweet, creamy or chunky, Ritter Sport covers it all! This can be found throughout most of Europe, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to try a bunch of their flavors. My personal favorite is the milk chocolate with coconut. YUM!
These are just a few to get you started, if you spend a semester abroad with ILP you'll have plenty of time to try out ALL the chocolate and find some favorites of your own.
