Click pic to view comments International sighting: Oscar Meyer Lunchables Chips Ahoy
Posted: 14:07 Thu 24-07-2003. Price: $1.99 pack of two. Location: Albertsons supermarket, California. Sub-flavours: Too numerous to mention. Nutritional unusualness: See below.
Snackspot reports: In the light of stories like Kraft plans to cut snack sizes, this may be something they'd like to look at. In the US, Kraft (owners of Oscar Meyer and Dairylea) produce cookie-based Lunchables, with compartments containing partially-hydrogenated vegetable oil frosting, sugar sprinkles, and a plastic spreader. The reasoning being: hey, presumably any interactive gimmick which gets kids to eat more iced biscuits has to be a good thing?

...Nothing quite like that over here, though "Tom Anderson" wrote in with this sneak peek of Tesco Finest Loaded Cookies: Whilst queueing in Tesco today, I glanced at the reference card which helps cashiers identify bakery products, and noticed these two items, which were marked "launching September 2003". As the name suggests, they seem to be some sort of cookie with lots of chunks of stuff on top, and drizzled with chocolate. The flavours weren't specified, only the short codes, but the pictures show 9720 to be a light-brown cookie topped with two different kinds of slightly darker brown things, one of which was round and one cuboidal (I'd guess that these were nuts, perhaps hazelnuts, and chocolate chunks), whilst 9973 is a dark brown cookie with white cuboidal things on top (although I didn't see direct evidence for milk chocolate chunks, the combination of chocolate dough and white chocolate chunks is the hallmark of triple chocolate).

Comment: Good luck - but if they don't have them, it's not really worth a trip to the West Coast just for that.

Comment: it's _always_ worth a trip to the west coast if you're on the east coast...

Comment: I've rebranded them Jack Cookies. They're going to feature less tits, and be smaller but thicker.
