Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Campino Summerfruits and Cream
Posted: 17:18 Wed 11-06-2003. Price: 99p for 140g bag. Location: Spar, Bath.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: Actually, 99p is quite expensive for just slightly over a quarter, isn't it? I was expecting these to be all one flavour, like "summer fruits" cordial, but in reality there are three different flavours in the packet - peach, blueberry and raspberry. As with other Campinos/ Polo Smoothies, the "cream" element tends to sadly overwhelm the fruit a bit. It doesn't do the peach any favours, with the rather nice peachiness struggling to occasionally poke its head up through the dairy tide, but the sharper raspberry and blueberry fare a little better. Not for me, really, but it does what it says on the tin. Campbell once again pips other spotters to the post, largely by virtue of providing a better pic than "Bob", who paid 1.09 for a pack in Morrisons supermarket, Kettering, and deemed them "very nice - better than the other ones". (And I've definitely seen some apple flavoured Polo Smoothies around, though I'm less sure if they're technically the "Sunshine Fruits" we're currently waiting for.) Plus, now there's even talk of Fruitella Sours. Hooray for summer!

Comment: The Fruitella's are out, but only in a multipack, I think.

Comment: Dude, you should obscure the @ or something - eg alex_jaime_musqiue [chez] hotmail.com or you'll harvested for spam. Fortunately I am omnipotent and can go back and fix the ones you've done so far...
