Confirmed sighting: Fox's Creations Chocolate Selection
Posted: 12:48 Sat 30-08-2003. Price: £1.25. Location: Tesco, Leighton Buzzard. Sub-flavours: Tangy Jaffa Viennese, Honeycrunch Sundae, Marbled Chocolate Whirl, Very Chocolatey Sundae. Nutritional unusualness: Jaffa one contains "Shredless orange marmalade with apple".
reports: OK, this is basically a followup to April's sighting of Fox's Millionaire Caramel Shortcake "Creation", but you don't see this multi-flavour selection box that often (see the updated Fox's Biscuits Fan Site for details). A bit pricey for a box of only 8 biscuits, but this Tesco's branch did offer the spectacle of a young child really laying into a cereal display by way of compensation.
...It's all go in luxury chocolate biscuits elsewhere, however, as NiceCupOfTea's Biscuit of the Week is the Bahlsen Crumbly "around in a few stores starting about now, but not the big supermarkets" until next year; today's The Grocer announces the debut of Mini Jaffa Cakes in a 79p/ 125g "impulse bag"; and regular contributor "ChoccieMan" has this to say about his recent discovery of Tesco Mini Bites Walnut and pecan flapjack/ Caramel roll: Well these were pretty impressive, out late one night looking for snack food and stumbled across these. The flapjacks aren't very nutty in flavour but are still pretty nice (I guess butter being the number one ingredient helps). Caramel rolls also quite good although don't go reading the ingredients list, it's massive and probably contains at least one ingredient you won't like the sound of (e.g. "polyglycerol esters of fatty acids"!). Definitely worth keeping in the fridge if the really hot weather returns.

Comment: Saw these cookies in Bellagio on Lake Como a couple of weeks ago. Bought 2 boxes and went back for 2 more. They are delicious! We had the chocolate/hazelnut. Can't wait until they are available in the US!

Comment: (previous post refers to Bahlsen's incorrectly apostrophed Crumbly's, by the way). Anyway, NiceCupOfWhatever have posted their comments on Foxs Creations, and notes that one of them is a "mind boggling" 79% chocolate:
Oh, and there's a programme on ITV London tonight about one of the other obsessive interests of the guy who runs the unofficial Fox's Biscuits Fan Page:
Date: Thursday 16 October Time: 7:30pm to 8:00pm:
"Following an attempt to beat the world record time for visiting each of the stations on the London underground, currently standing at 19hours 18 minutes and 45 seconds. The programme also looks at why anyone would want to devote themselves to this bizarre record. "

Comment: the M&S christmas boxed biscuits look *exactly* like the Fox's Creations. I wonder if they're made by the same company. They're on special offer at the moment...
