Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Crispy Bacon Cheez Double Dippers
Posted: 18:55 Sat 07-02-2004. Price: 1.19 for 4 x 40g pots. Location: Safeway, Bath. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: The "stuff you dip in cheese" market seems to have exploded - there were at least 20 different varieties of little pots of cheese dip with something or other you're supposed to dunk in it in the chiller cabinet. The latest is a compartment of breadcrumby "bacon bits", reminiscent of the flavouring of Pot Noodle Sizzlers. Hard and crunchy, in combination with the breadsticks the bacon bits totally overwhelm the mild Dairylea-ish "cheez" if you get any more than about three of them on the end of your stick. I'd stick with the salt'n'vinegar twists. (Oddly, nobody as far as I can see has made an onion-flavour dipping device for cheese spread yet. Funny old world.)

...Cheers Stu - I've been finding it tricky to keep up with this market myself (confusingly, the "Laughing Cow" Double Dippers appear to be different to a Belgian nacho snack of the same name). In other salty seasonings - today's The Grocer reports that: Heinz are axing their first-person oddity Bite Me; US nut giant Planters are launching Nut Cluster-esque Crispy Coated Peanuts (in Thai sweet chilli, Sour cream and jalapeno, Sea salt and malt); and Golden Wonder are replacing Chicken and Mushroom Wheat Crunchies with the ever-popular flavour of Doner Kebab.

Comment: 'rudy tops'??? a remarkable case of nominative determinism not quite panning out...

Comment: Speaking of which, the Planters pic definitely shows the flavour as "Sea salt and malt" - you'd assume it's "malt vinegar" but here's hoping it might be a different definition: (single) malt whisky, "An alcoholic beverage, such as beer or ale", or one of those American milkshakes with bits of Ovaltine in the bottom... 41814 8 99
