Click pic to view comments Confirmed sighting: Hula Hoops "Inside And Out" Beef flavour
Posted: 16:17 Thu 25-03-2004. Price: 35p. Location: Newsagents, Bath. Sub-flavours: Not known.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: Out of nowhere, this revolutionary development in snack-taste technology is so unexpected that I didn't realise they didn't do it already. However, Beef flavour Hula Hoops now come with flavouring on both the outside and inside of the ring. Personally I hadn't noticed them being underflavoured before (certainly not compared to the other HH varieties), but now it's akin to sticking your tongue in a jar of neat Bovril with every bite. There's no indication of any of the other flavours getting the "Inside and Out" treatment - the other ones in the shop were "normal", and there's nothing on the pack either. I can hardly bear this tension.

...In other crispy creativity: "Anon Bunny" claims to have seen "samples of this summer's Monster Munch 'turns your tongue blue' (pickled onion flavour)", while The Grocer reports that Kelloggs are (at last!) moving their popular Special K cereal into the "savoury snacking market", with a range of Special K Lite Bites (crispy corn lattices, 8% fat content, toasted rather than fried) launching next month in "Cheese", "Tikka" and "Sundried Tomato and Basil" flavours (in 28g bags priced around 39p).

Comment: if anyone finds a pack with the inside flavoured differently than the outside let me know. It would be a good idea and save me buying two packs

Comment: thats the new packed in foil for freshness for you. i still think crisps taste better in the old clear packets just like some of the own brand ones you get in supermarkets or off the market. 56189 0 39
