Click pic to view comments Semi-international sighting: Cadbury Luxury Flake
Posted: 16:49 Wed 25-02-2004. Price: 23p. Location: Market trader, Luton. Nutritional unusualness: Flavours (Ethyl Vanillin and Nature Identical Chocolate).
"KoolAid" reports: Very occasionally, the world of global logistics goes wrong somewhere, and we are treated to things like this by our local proletarian market traders. This bar is actually made in New Zealand for the export market, and somewhere along the way to Malaysia it got put on the wrong boat and ended up in Liverpool docks. The Luxury Flake is really a Flake Dipped. It uses the international recipe for Dairy Milk, which means cocoa butter instead of hydrogenated vegetable fat, and melts in the mouth quicker than the UK version. Treats I have enjoyed in the past from market traders include Nestle Butterfingers (lost on the way from USA to Mexico), which I cleaned them out of, and Cadbury's Moro bars from Ireland.

...Well, let's hope these foreign intruders don't escape into the wild and eliminate our own native Cadbury Flake, as happened with the red squirrel. Just a quick snippet of more local Cadbury news: this week's The Grocer reports that Milk and Caramel versions of Cadbury Giant Fingers will "aim to capture a significant slice of the lunchbox market" early this March, in 8-packs of individually wrapped biscuits "four times the weight of the standard offering", starting at a special promotional price of 79p.

Comment: When I lived in Hull, our shops seemed to have a regular supply of international produce, most memorably Heinz's mayonnaise direct from Russia.

Just before Christmas our Moro bars here in Ireland had "soon to be renamed Boost" all over them, but this seems to have disappeared as new Moro labels have appeared. Does anyone know any more about this?

Comment: A small Nottingham newsagent I frequent sells Cadbury Dairy Milk bars produced in Poland.

They must be very popular with the locals -- there's always a big queue of teenagers standing outside the shop, presumably waiting in line to buy another tasty bar!

Comment: The same shop that Commander Zorg goes in sell the exclusive, Poland only, Almond Dairy Milk Bar. Its nice but after a while you get bored that theres no fruit so start to eat around the almonds. Or is that just me???

ps: I could be wrong about it being Poland only. But they are definatly produced in Poland, have foreign writing on and are even a different thickness with different sized 'squares'! Do Polish people have smaller mouths or something? :)

Comment: I've been enjoying French 'Cadbury Finger Giant' (Chocolat Au Lait) courtesy of my local trader for a few weeks now - and very good they are too. Available in a pack of 6 individually wrapped fingers, a little smaller than a Fudge but with the same girth. Not quite as moreish as the regular fingers (a good thing?).

Miss Zorg, is Almond Dairy Milk just 'Whole Nut', or an Almond/Choc hybrid thing? Local shop has some in, but I've been declining it in favour of Polish Fruit & Nut and South African Top Deck.

Comment: Do you reckon this is genuine or a marketing front for Cadbury around Easter time? Would do a Whois, but I can't be arsed as I'm eating a baked potato.

Comment: Can't get a result with WHOIS for some reason. Anyone else fare better?

Comment: My local Asda (in Totton near Southampton, Hampshire) had Cadbury's Giant Fingers - "8 deliciously crisp GIANT biscuits covered in Cadbury's milk chocolate" - in stock last Friday so I bought a pack; the ratio of shortcake to chocolate is much greater so they taste much more of biscuit than 'standard' Fingers. I wasn't sure if I liked them at first but by the fourth finger (not eaten all at once, I might add!) I thought that they "weren't bad".
