Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Rolo and Hunnies Confirmed sighting: Nestle Rolo and Hunnies
Posted: 15:37 Tue 03-Aug-2004. Price: 45p. Location: C-store opposite Leytonstone McDonald's. Nutritional unusualness: Glucose syrup, Glucose-fructose syrup, Hydrogenated vegetable oil (and that's just the "Little Rolos"!).
Snackspot reports: I know, saying "new" on the corner of the pack is no guarantee, but I definitely hadn't seen this "deliciously more-ish mix of Little Rolo and milk chocolate coated crunchy honeycomb nuggets" before - the chocolate coated crunchy honeycomb bits are very similar in both name and appearance to Cadbury's Crunchie Nuggets, only made by Nestle, obviously. And if you don't look at the packet too carefully, you kind of assume that these are actually honey-flavoured Mini Rolos (until, that is, you get the packet open), once again emphasising Stewart Lee's dictum (Radio 4 audio player link, only lasts until tomorrow, sorry) - "That, which began with honey, ends in despair".

...Also, is it just me, or is anyone else disappointed to discover that FHM's currently advertised guide to "High Street Honeys" is merely full of pictures of attractive shopgirls, rather than providing useful consumer advice for the health-conscious honey purchaser? Anyway, in other Nestle news: "Nebbish" notes that According to today's Guardian [and the BBC], KitKat are changing their slogan from 'Have a Break, Have a KitKat' to 'Make the Most of Your Break', the cue for London's free Metro newspaper to recall other axed slogans including "Marmite - the growing up spread you never grow out of" and "All because the lady loves... Milk Tray" - as ever, post your long-lost favourites if you've got any.

Comment: There should be a ban on products saying "new" if they have been out for more than 2 months or so.

Comment: They CAN'T change that slogan! It is an integral part of the fabric of snack kulchur... they will surely rot in hell.

That new slogan is rubBISH. It was bad enough when they changed the packaging, but this is the last straw.

Comment: Damn them for trying to purposely deceive. Honey flavoured Rolos sound FANTASTIC.

Comment: Does anyone remember the TV advert for a thrush treatment with the catchy slogan "The oral treatment for vaginal thrush"?

Comment: Rolos & Hunnies are rubbish, in my experience. There were barely any "Hunnies" in the bag, plus they were like a poor quality version of Cadbury Crunchie Nuggets. I promptly complained to Nestle.

As a point of interest, I have a friend who says Nestle as "Nessel" rather than "Ness-lay".

Comment: What the? Look how easy it is to ignore the & in Rolo & Hunnies. SADLY I purchased this hoping I could get honey tasting Rolos (obviously I realised before opening the pack that there were weird little crunchie looking things involved but I didnt think Nestle would be SO rubbish to not even TRY to make the Rolos taste like honey) but N0.. Nestle has decided to be LAZY and unoriginal and copy those Crunchie nugget things when they easily could've lived upto their name and made honey flavour rolos and they undoubtedly would've been more popular and succesful in the long term, popular WITH ME anyway. But do Nestle care about making a product with long lasting potential? Clearly NOT, Rolos & Hunnies are obviously another quick and easy novelty cash in and I wont even NOTICE if these suddenly dissapear in 6 months time. I dont like the drastic change from soft and gooey (Rolos) to hard and chrunchy and making my tongue taste weird (hunnies). Next time Nestle, dont BOTHER. I bought this product once and never again. Nestle is an appalling joke of a company ANYWAY.

I wouldn't mind Rolos & Bunnies for next Easter though and yes i'll be copyrighting too right! *angry*

Comment: Wow. KittyF - that has upset you far more than any 'normal' person should be. Your use of occasional CAPITALS was quite scary. *hides from the angry fairy*

Comment: My mate bought me these so I apologise for the lack of info on price etc. Basically they're mini Rolo pieces with honeycomb bits (that look like chocolate covered raisins) thrown into the bag alongside them. The Rolo pieces out numbered the honeycomb ones by about 10 to 1 which was disappointing. I was at the end of the pack till I realised there was honeycomb bits in it in the first place. The packet was finished within 2 minutes and there was no immediate "sticky mouth", although after a few more minutes had elapsed I went for a scoof of water. Overall an enjoyable enough product but I wouldn't buy them again. 24021 5 00
