Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Cadbury Dark Chocolate Flake/ Tunnock's Dark Chocolate Teacake International sighting: Cadbury Dark Chocolate Flake/ Tunnock's Dark Chocolate Teacake
Posted: 20:57 Mon 29-Nov-2004. Price: AU$1.75; 69p for 6. Location: 24 Grocers, Circular Quay, Sydney, Australia; Tesco, Glasgow. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Liz Stephens" reports: Sensory Test - Dark Chocolate tastes very similar to that used in Riesen chocolates. Little bit waxy but that was probably to prevent it melting. Hope it will come to the UK soon!

...Tragically "Liz" neglected to provide a pic of what the locals no doubt describe as "this little beauty", so we'll just have to make do with "Stephen Craig's" further evidence that "the dark is rising", in the form of the Tunnock's Dark Chocolate Teacake he describes as follows: The innovation literally never stops at Victorian, Cardiac-Inducing, Scottish biscuit manufacturers Tunnocks. Not content with performing the same upgrade on their venerable Caramel Wafer line recently, they've now woven their magic on the Teacake - applying the usual eggshell thin coating of the finest* dark chocolate instead of the usual milk. *(Note - In this case, for "finest", read "cheapest".) And, er, to be honest, it tastes pretty much identical. Not quite so sweet obviously, but the fantastic mallow filling and biscuit base remain the same. Not a terrible expansion of the product line then, but somewhat pointless. In other international innovation, the ever-whimsical McSweeney's is currently leading with reviews of Vanilla Tootsie Rolls, a "soy grits"-based Post's Carb Well High Protein Cereal, and what may be the US version of new Ellactiva Calcium Chews (available here in caramel or strawberry), of which they advise: "Don't look directly at them, because they are strangely more opaque than unsupplemented caramel. Simply unwrap and enjoy!"
