Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Vimto Jam Tarts
Posted: 11:52 Wed 05-11-2003. Price: 69p . Location: Colin Sykes, Church Street, Runcorn, Cheshire. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Kirsty Walker" reports: Well, it's a jam tart, and does indeed taste of Vimto, with some kind of jam-like substance in the middle, which is described only as "Vimto Flavoured Filling". Delicious.

...In fact, this box of "6 mixed fruit flavoured tarts" isn't particularly new, as "Kirsty" tacitly admits with a link to this August 2003 Independent article celebrating Vimto's resurgence on the fashionable cocktail scene (contains numerous Vimto recipes, the information that Vimto consists of a secret combination of fruit juices, "sodium benzoate", and malt). Nonetheless, it is just the excuse I need to pass on The Grocer's recent fruity cake/ confectionery revelations concerning: the pre-Christmas arrival of Cadbury White Chocolate Button Cakes; the imminent addition of a Lemon flavour of Chewits Xtremely Sour (RRP about 25p); plus the launches of Fruit-tella Juice Wave, Strawberry Mix, and Raspberry Soft Cream sticks sometime in the New Year.

Comment: The lemon Xtremely Sour Chewits are indeed out now. They are the second most prominent flavour in the big bumper bag of Extremely Sour Chewits I have here, after Tutti Frutti flavour (in fact, Rhubarb) and ahead of apple flavour.

None of these flavours are particularly sour, however.

Big bags are currently BOGOF at Poundstretcher.
