Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Cadbury's Banoffi bar
Posted: 12:44 Thu 11-12-2003. Price: 59p/ 100g bar. Location: Farmfoods, Bristol. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: I can never figure out if places like Farmfoods are somewhere snack-makers try out exciting new products in advance, or if they're a bargain-bin clearance outlet for failed test stuff they've decided to scrap before ever giving it a proper release. Whichever it is, the store is an ever-reliable treasure-trove of treats, typified by this soft-centre bar whose filling tastes EXACTLY like the gooey bit from the middle of a banoffee pie. As you might expect, surrounding that with Dairy Milk makes it so sweet that you'll struggle to eat more than two squares at a time without making your teeth itch, but like all mood-altering drugs, this is safe when used in moderation.

...(Please note that Stuart's comments are for amusement purposes only, and should not replace the advice of a qualified medical professional.) Anyway, in other choco-fruity frolics: just a quick heads-up that NiceCupOfTeaEtc's recent "biscuits of the week" have included the new Bahlsen Orange Choco Leibniz (another one named after a - philosophical - revolutionary!), plus the unabashedly named Aussie import Arnott's Gaiety.
