Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Wham Itty Bittys
Posted: 20:04 Tue 27-05-2003. Price: 30p. Location: Spar, Bath. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: "Sour raspberry flavour bits" is the box description, and it does exactly what it says on the tin. These are little cuboid nuggets about the size of petits pois, and tasting exactly of Wham bars. I'd been hoping they'd be soft and chewy, similar to Millions, but they're actually hard and crunchy, collapsing into a burst of crumbly fizz with the texture of Love Hearts when you bite down on them. Surprisingly nice, though. And the box opens in a really bizarre way. Once again, not sure quite how new these are, but they constitute the perfect opportunity to note the imminent arrival of: Starburst Sour Chews (note that the UK will have Apple, Raspberry, Pineapple and Cherry flavours, rather than the US selection of Green Apple, Watermelon, Cherry and "Blue Raspberry"); Penguin Mini Rolls (1.89 for pack of 10); and, for the benefit of our Russian readers, Snickers Mad Mix, featuring caramel and sunflower seeds instead of peanuts.

Comment: I first had these 2 months ago.

They seem resigned to hanging around in newsagents

Comment: I've just had a packet of Starburst Sour Chews (no camera at hand, so you'll have to take my word for it).

Not really that sour though. I seem to remember those sour fizzing Chewits being much higher on the sour scale. Or maybe it's me, losing sensation in my advancing age...

Comment: Interstingly, I can't find a website for Itty, who is labelled on the box as 'full of fun, bouncing around getting into all sorts of mischief'.

The box is pink and green, pink for raspberry and green for apple.

The apple isn't too sour, which is a positive in eating them both together. I'd buy these again, but its a shame I can only see them in a newsagents.
