Confirmed Sighting: Primula Scooby-Doo Lemon Squeezy Snacks
Posted: 19:12 Mon 05-05-2003. Price: 89p/ packet. Location: Safeway, Bath. Nutritional unusualness: It's lemon-flavoured cheese.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: Popped into a well-known garage chain to have my car's dodgy tyre seen to. Chap spent half an hour sanding down the wheel rims to ensure a flush fit and stop the tyres deflating. When I asked the price, he said "How much cash have you got on you?" Rummaged in my pockets and found 4.40 in loose change, no notes. "That'll do", he said, pocketed the cash and we went our respective ways, leaving me thankful I hadn't just been to the cashpoint. Anyway, on I went to the nearby Safeway - got the car out anyway, might as well get some heavy shopping - and found something even weirder than a mechanic who just charges however much money you've got on you. View the first comment (below) to read the full astonishing account of Stuart's first ever encounter with Primula lemon-flavoured cheese. Another thing you might not know about Primula, by the way, is that it's owned by the Norwegian Kavli Charitable Foundation who aim to support "scientific, cultural and humanitarian causes", a philanthropy unfortunately not extended to users of non-Microsoft browser software.

Comment: This fantastic little snack comes in an attractive box containing half-a-dozen little digestive-type biscuits, and a really cute miniature tube of lemon-flavoured Primula cheese spread. You squeeze the cheese onto the biscuit, and stick the other half, which has the face of a ghost, on top. On squeezing or biting down on the biscuit, the cheese oozes through the ghost's eyeholes and mouth and out the sides, which the packaging makes clear is a design feature. It's both entertaining and delicious, plus even if you apply the spread very liberally, you'll have half the tube left when you've finished the biscuits, which you can find your own fun use for.

Comment: Just click on the little red Kavli sign to be taken to the "no_ie" page. Of course not much works. Norwegian b@5t@rd5 :-) "The history of Olav Kavli - traveller with cheese"
