Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Fox's Rocky Rounds
Posted: 19:58 Fri 16-05-2003. Price: 1.29 for "5 bags". Location: Waitrose, Finchley Road, London NW3. Sub-flavours: Caramel, normal. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
Snackspot reports: And the biccies just keep a-coming, with this unexpected diversification into circular disk form for the formerly robin-endorsed Rocky bar. Not too many surprises here for the Fox's connoisseur, though they're clearly targeting the lunchbox market with the smaller sub-packaging containing just 5 to 6 biscuits each. Futhermore, today's edition of Independent Retail News has the news that McVitie's is "extending two of its biggest brands" with the launch of Lemon & Ginger Digestive (79p) and Caramel & Hazelnut HobNobs (89p). For those of you who'd like a drink with that, Unilever are replacing the existing PG Tips Pyramid bags with new "Freeflow" material designed "to allow tea to flow more freely through the bag". Will the madness never end?

Comment: really like the sound of lemon and ginger digestives....any news of what they are/will be like - are we talking lemon icing or lemon cream or inbuilt lemon flavour?

Comment: The local corner shop sells the lemon and ginger digestives.. but that's the only place I've seen them so far. And at 70p for a little packet, I've resisted the temptation to try them thus far as well...

Comment: What kind of corner shop is it, Matthew? Are you the one who lives near Sainsbury's Norwich? http://www.snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=0304291303sbc

Comment: i've just bought a packet of lemon and ginger digestives from a newsagents on Horseferry Road, Victoria. i have to say i'm not convinced. the lemon flavour is a little chemical, and the ginger almost undetectable. they're better after a good dunking though.

Comment: do you remember which newsagents? (horseferry's a long, long road).

hey, it's not the shop just across from politico's bookshop at the channel 4 end, is it? i've bought some great biscuits there myself

Comment: Those new pg tips billboard ads are very misleading. In big red letters they have stamped across them FREE then written in very small ones something like free your tea. However, I suppose it works as it did get my attention.
