Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Tizer "ItzRed" Colourz Confirmed sighting: Tizer "ItzRed" Colourz
Posted: 13:02 Mon 12-04-2004. Price: 95p, buy one get one free. Location: Local newsagent. Sub-flavours: Green (apple), purple (grape/ blackcurrant), orange (orange, I guess). Nutritional unusualness: High sugar content, "itz red but tastes GREEN".
"Matthew" reports: Went to the newsagent today, and saw a "buy one get one" offer on normal Tizer and three new variants. Decided to try both the green and purple ones... and they're actually quite nice. A bit sickly, and there's still part of the old Tizer taste in there (the flavours are more hints, really), but nice. Better than Virgin Sours, anyways...

..."Matthew" has so far been unable to provide a pic of the elusive Virgin Sours, but redeems himself by spotting these well in advance of most of the official news outlets. Other sightings you'll just have to imagine for now include Chocolate Flavour Fizzy Ribena (in a can) - Weston-super-Mare's "Tony Ryan" pleading: Can anyone else confirm this existed? Preferably with a pic. I only know 2 other people who remember seeing it, and it's not enough to prove I'm not mad!, and "Sean Wilkinson", still dining out on this year-old anecdote: In December 2002 I went on a holiday to New Zealand. At the time, McDonalds had just brought out the new "Coke Float". There were 3 flavours: Coca-Cola, Sprite and Fanta. The only flavour I didn't try was funnily enough the Coca-Cola one itself. Other interesting things I saw were: Blue Pepsi and some sort of candy cables with Nerds in them.

Comment: If they've still got some, I'll try and get you a picture by the end of the week. I'm not buying any more though - it gave me indigestion.

Comment: actually, panic over - it looks like "Stuart Campbell" has managed to scan the wrapper - possibly using special ultraviolet rays
