Click pic to view comments Advance sighting: Kellogg's Screamin' Fruit Spurters
Posted: 13:41 Tue 29-07-2003. Price: N/A. Sub-flavours: 5 different flavoured individual sweets, around 8 in a pack. Nutritional unusualness: about 40% fruit.
"Mr K " reports: This is a bit of a risk as these are not even in the store yet and won't be for about a month. They have been produced in sample quantities though and they have been given out within Kellogg. They are very like Rowntree Bursting Bugs but definitely with a more 'real' fruit taste. Opinion has been divided between very chewy and fruity in a good way to a bit rubbery and dodgy! Personally I think they are ok but not as nice as the Fruit Winders! Expect to see them in shops very soon, about a month or so!

...Nice work, Mr K - who also adds "Sorry about the slight crapiness of the image, the dossier had to be smuggled out inside a 750g box of Frosties :-)." What with this and the Screamin' Fruit Squidgers, Kellogg really seem to be going for the lunchbox market, though malt-loaf masterminds Soreen are fighting back with their own Fruity Cereal Bar, and Independent Retail News reports that "Nestle Rowntree has added to its children's biscuit range with the launch of Rowntree's Fruit Jambos" (99p for pack of three).

Comment: You're not thinking of Screamin' Fruit Squidgers are you, JT?

Comment: I think they should be called *Squealin'* Fruit Squidgers - both to avoid confusion, and for the re-enacting of "Deliverance" scenes

Comment: Where is the sighting for the Squidgers?

Comment: JT - Can guarantee you haven't seen these in the store yet. You have seen the Squidgers which have an apple variety and are indeed 59p each. They are in a twist top pack and taste like fruit sauce/soup. I think I sent Snackspot some shots of the Squidgers varieties (let me know if not).

Snackspot - I would also like to see the brand family renamed Squealin' Fruit, but only to keep in line with the dubious sexual references of Spurters and Squidgers :-)

Comment: Yes you did Mr K - cheers. I thought the Spurters were more newsworthy but I'll give the Squidgers their own Sighting if that's what you'd all prefer...

Comment: Not too bothered, please use as you see fit. I know the pics are a bit dodgy quality so sorry about that.

Comment: Spotted both the Fruit Jambos and the multipack(and single pack) of the Spurters.

The Fruit Jambo's tasted artificial at first, but are nice on your second pack.

The Spurters are like Fruit Rush- only about 5 in a pack, but Spurters are bigger, and nicer, so they get my vote(despite only have 2 flavours)

Comment: Alert readers may find these familiar, as they very closely resemble Burton's Frooty Frogs, warmly recommended at an earlier date by this correspondent: http://www.snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=0305131952sbc

The resemblance is purely superficial, though, as these are horrible. The gummy outside part is completely tasteless, and the liquid centre is the same rather oversugared jam seen in the same company's Squidgers range of "drinks". Add in the fact that you only get about seven sweets to a packet (making them sweet-for-sweet about five times the price of Frooty Frogs) and there's no way back. Rubbish.

Comment: It's hardly like it was ever there, was it? To me it looked a bit like a spoof hastily knocked together on some free webspace (accepting that very latest in online payment systems, the *postal order*) - but hey, what do I know?

Comment: Cheers for clearing that up JT (though I think most of us can spot the distinctive change in "your" two different styles...)

Comment: You should add Scream'in Fruit Winders to your site if you want visitors
Posted: 11:38 Sun 22-02-2004 by Snackspot # permalink comment
Comment: I'm not sure that's the sort of "visitors" we're looking for - seriously, the original Winders were introduced in early 2001 (well before Snackspot launched), though we're still interested in hearing more about their new "lemon flavour": http://www.snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=0402161703daa#20040217114000
