Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells with Creamy Strawberry Filling Confirmed sighting: Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shells with Creamy Strawberry Filling
Posted: 13:10 Mon 14-06-2004. Price: 99p-1.09 for 50g box of 6. Location: Waitrose, Woodley Reading; Woolworth's, Sheffield. Nutritional unusualness: Contains no cream and less than 3% strawberry.
"Diarmuid Mallon" reports: Another one of these strawberry influenced summer special editions. These look just like the traditional Guylian Sea Shell chocs, but with the praline filling replaced by "creamy" strawberry flavoured stuff. Very nice indeed, but not quite as moorish as the originals. Oh, and best eaten cold.

...Another close-run thing here, as "Diarmuid" just got his pic (of a noticeably empty box) in before "charl" , who was somewhat less impressed, adding: The Belgians haven't been famed for their strawberry products prior to now and will continue not to be on the strength of these. These are the same old Guylian seashells filled with a bizarre strawberry mousse. It has the consistency of butter and contains real stawberry pips. Yuck! In other fruity flavourings: The Grocer reports that Del Monte are adding Squeezie Fruitini resealable pouches to their ready-to-eat fruit range (in Apple, Blackcurrant and Strawberry flavours, from 59p), and that St Ivel's Amazing Spider-Man Desserts will include a "strawberry and raspberry wholemilk yoghurt" (1.19 for pack of 4), and "a fizzy cherry cola and orange layered jelly" (79p for pack of 2). Snackspot's older readers, meanwhile, may be intrigued to hear British Summer Fruits' remarkable claim that every time you have sex, or simply want to ready yourself or your partner for sex, you should consume a handful of raspberries or strawberries - and then repeat until the sensation goes away again?

Comment: Top tip of the day: Don't eat strawberries if you/your partner likes to indulge in a little "backdoor action". You'll thank me one day... ;-)
