Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Kinder Country
Posted: 17:24 Tue 23-03-2004. Price: 20p/ 23.5g bar. Location: Woolworths, St David's Centre, Cardiff (also Kingswood branch). Nutritional unusualness: Includes barley, rice, wheat, spelt and buckwheat. Plus *concentrated* butter.
"Emma Manderson (elmsyrup)" reports: I do so love Kinder. My goodness this is delicious. The grains are lovely and wholesome tasting, like puffed wheat or even better, the fab wholegrain cereal Kashi. I can't abide sugar on my cereal but the flavour actually goes really well with the chocolate. It's an ingenious alternative to chocolate with nuts. Everyone should please buy this because I don't want it going out of the shops as soon as it's arrived.

...Crikey, it's like "Point - Counterpoint" round here - no sooner did "Emma/ elmsyrup" provide a pic of this previously disputed novelty than the ever-reliable "Stuart Campbell" chipped in with his dissenting view: I'm sure I saw these ages ago in some format or other, but they're flashed as NEW, they're certainly unusual, and a search reveals no previous sightings, so they're worth a word, and the word is "don't". This appears to be a Kinder bar shot through with bird seed - barley, buckwheat and suchlike - and is pretty horrible, like a gritty, sawdusty version of Nestle Crunch. Still, at least it doesn't have bloody hazelnuts in it. Did Kinder get caught in a massive Trading Places-style sting operation a decade ago and stuck with massive warehouses in Uzbekistan full to the rafters with hazelnuts that they have to palm off onto innocent chocolate lovers, or what?

Comment: I just found one of these in the fridge at work and I LOVED IT! I am a big candy freak. While it was quite unusual, it was a welcome change of pace from all the typical American candy I'm used to. I would highly recommend it. 10754 7 26
