Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Nestle Mini Smarties and Yogurt
Posted: 11:58 Thu 07-08-2003. Price: Not noted. Location: Waitrose, Woodley, Reading. Sub-flavours: None. Nutritional unusualness: The goodness of yogurt and Smarties!.
"Diarmuid Mallon" reports: Yet again Waitrose in Woodley comes up trumps with a new food. A rather nice mixture of lightly vanilla flavoured yogurt and Mini Smarties in a "fruit corner" type packaging. Personally I would have favoured a more tart yogurt (say like the moorish yogurt and brownies at Pret) but very enjoyable all the same. No idea of price, as it "fell of the shelf and in to the trolley" whilst my partner wasn't looking :-)

...A touching picture of domestic deception there from Diarmuid, though he neglects to mention whether the Smarties shed their bright colours into the yoghurt like they seem to in all other Smarties-based puddings (I'm sure they do!). In other dessert-related developments: Lyle's Golden Syrup continues its reign as flavour of the month with a branded ice-cream tub appearing in Asda and Iceland ahead of its full roll-out in September; and has anyone tried the (exclusive to Tesco?) orange limited edition of Nestle's Fab?

Comment: Blimey, that Richmond Ice Cream site is full of stuff I've never seen over here - the "virtually fat-free" Frubetto: http://www.richmond-icecream.co.uk/Main-1/Productdetails1.asp?secta=11&offset=1

- and, "back to its original recipe", the Nobbly Bobbly, coated with "fun coloured sugar balls": http://www.richmond-icecream.co.uk/Main-1/Productdetails1.asp?offset=3&secta=10

Comment: Some more Skittlese news.

the UK skittles are now renamed -----Sours (the ---- meaning place correct word here, as I only caught a glimpse of the advert) and now have the US packaging, except the writing of Sours, which is the same on all of the products now.

Not sure if they have a sugar coating

Comment: Yes - happy to confirm that a little of the smarties colour comes off, but not a great deal. Then again I didn't hang around when eating it. A KFC M&Ms Avalanche that I had last week lost so much colour, it looked more like a acid induced vision that a dairy base dessert.

Comment: Did you have to eat it in secret, in case your partner found out?
Posted: 15:16 Fri 08-08-2003 by "Diarmuid Mallon" # permalink comment
Comment: well... sort of... I had the KFC warm chicken salad (via drive-in and then eaten at work). The salad comes in a large brown paper bag, perfect for slipping the odd dessert in :-)

Comment: Oh yes, often easier to explain at household mealtimes than "Ah, what's this? I appear to have brought along my own dessert. And no, there isn't enough for anyone else..."

Must do a sighting for those KFC salads next week too - what dressing did you have?

Posted: 22:25 Fri 08-08-2003 by "Diarmuid Mallon" # permalink comment
Comment: Caesar - of course. The salad was very good - lots of different types of leaf, 4 or 5 baby plum tomatoes and 1 KFC chicken breast cut up (the ads on TV have way more chicken than you get in real life). The Caesar dress was a little to gloopy - but a good balance of salt and pepper. Very enjoyable.
