Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Nestle Sundae Smarties International sighting: Nestle Sundae Smarties
Posted: 10:31 Fri 04-06-2004. Price: 1.15 for 50g. Location: Cybercandy (imported from Canada). Nutritional unusualness: "Gardez-vous les rouges pour la fin?".
"Diarmuid Mallon" reports: Unsure if Cybercandy counts as a "real" sighting, but as we've had a bit of a Smarties theme, I'll submit these. Unlike traditional Smarties, these ice cream flavours come in a resealable box. The flavours range from the fruity strawberry, bland vanilla, and confusing wildberry to the uninspired chocolate. My box had 9 caramel (brown - faint taste), 3 vanilla (white - almost no taste), 3 wildberry (blue - no idea what these are!), 8 orange (orange - strong fake orange taste), 6 strawberry (pink - reasonable taste), 10 raspberry (red - tastes like nesquik powder), 6 banana (yellow - and yuck!) and finally 6 chocolate (black - and they perfectly taste of chocolate). I did try some blind tastings, and it was tricky to initially tell them apart. However the flavours seemed to reinforce each other and so they tasted better as time went on. Except for the banana. The picture shows the Smarties to be mottled in appearance, but this may be more to do with them sitting in my pocket all night at the Borderline, watching Tom Russell.

..."Diarmuid" here confirms "Lee Maguire's" previous sighting where he implied they might be some sort of response to Mars Skittles Shakes. Nothing quite so exciting over here, though "Geoff Dixon" wrote to alert us to his company's Chocpix process by which: Any picture can be captured in white chocolate - revealed by light. First products include London (available at London Eye shop) and Blackpool. Our new UK invention won the only award from 1,500 stands at Europe's largest confectionery exhibition in Cologne in February. And fans of edible experimentation are further invited to attend this Sunday's NotCon alternative IT show (11am-7pm, Imperial College Union, South Kensington, 4 on the door), where the low-tech attractions will include "Telling the time (not very accurately) using a Marks & Spencer prawn sandwich and a BBC micro".

Comment: At least these sound more appealing than fruit centre smarties.

Comment: i got some from cybercandy in covent garden the other day - they're ok but the banana ones are minging. as are all banana flavoured things - just eat a real banana! don't think banana is an 'ice cream flavour' anyway...
