Or you can make it from scratch--well, from cans of condensed milk anyway (the concept of taking condensed milk and adding sugar is a bit mind-boggling, but it really does work). There are recipes on the web: http://www.scruss.com/tablet.html (with photos of each stage), for instance, or http://britishfood.about.com/od/scottishregionalrecipes/r/tablet.htm . We've made it; the crucial thing seems to be to keep beating the mixture vigorously after you take it off the heat, before pouring it into the baking tray. It is very delicious.
