Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Fab It's Orange Confirmed sighting: Nestle Fab It's Orange
Posted: 20:51 Tue 22-06-2004. Price: 2.00 for two boxes of eight. Location: Safeway, Sheffield. Nutritional unusualness: "This product may stain".
"charl" reports: I was really looking forward to this, since I like Fab ice lollies and I like oranges. Unfortunately they've packed the normally innocuous hundreds and thousands with the most invasive faux-orange flavouring you can imagine. The lolly itself seems like it would be fine (fluorescent orange water ice base with the same milky white second layer), but I had to bin it before I got that far. Anyone want seven more? (I had taken a shot of it outside the wrapper, Snackspot, but the flavour was so strong it's broken my digital camera!)

..."charl" here provides a dissenting voice to the ever-controversial Stuart Campbell on this upcoming tie-in with the "Thunderbirds" movie, while "Diarmuid Mallon" laments another relative "golden oldie", in the form of the (launched last year) Cadbury Creme Egg cones he snapped up at 82p for 3 at Asda, Lower Early, Reading: The heavily discounted price reflects the fatal flaw with this ice cream concept bar. Whilst the combining of well known brands and ice cream has been successful for the likes of the Mars bar, the mutual exclusion of Easter and summer seems to be a major factor in the lack of success of this "King Cone" wannabe. Which is a shame, as the cone successfully echoes what it is to be a Creme Egg. Chocolate covering, vanilla ice cream with a centre of golden yellow fondant. And it tastes good as well. The ice cream seems to be the same one used in the Magnum Intense, which I was not so impressed with as the truffle was too powdery for me.

Comment: Yeah, and I keep meaning to get round to asking whether you are my sister Charlotte, another Steel City resident and Snackspot fan.

Comment: and I happen to enjoy the electronic musical stylings of Sheffield's "Cabaret Voltaire" and "The Human League"!

Comment: Today i brought a box of these and i ate 3 of them in 1 hour because i have a saw throat, the 1000s & thousands are not very nice at all. On another note i visited cybercandys online secretshop where they have new hubba bubba vanilla cola gum, a new juciy fruit, mars lava and cadbury dream with cookie. And there is another thing the snackspot site should stand out more than the 'ntkmart'.

Comment: no, nebbish, i am not your sister, unless my parents lied to me. diarmuid, you grew your _what_ in sheffield? and snackspot, any plans for a 'sounds of snackspot' cd compilation - 'songs to raise your blood sugar to'?

Comment: Opps! Typo there. I of course meant 'up' not 'my' which is a easy mistake given the close proximity of those keys... I'll go back to sleep now

Comment: Why, the Kaptain would like a Snackingspot t-shirt to give Snackspot.org free advertising on his chest, belly and posterior thorax.

He even suggested an idea for one some months back but heard nothing. The Kaptain kried becase of this.

Comment: That's a shame, Charl, we could have had a tearful reunion in front of everyone, even though I speak to her at least once a week.

What about a combination T-shirt and CD? You could even make it edible.

Comment: well i guess you could always be my e-sibling, nebbish... *sobs* [in a trisha style]

like the idea of a snackspot tshirt kaptain - black (doesn't stain) with a convenient pocket for snacking-on-the-go.
