Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Chunky Seriously Double Chocolate cake bars Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Chunky Seriously Double Chocolate cake bars
Posted: 14:31 Thu 09-Dec-2004. Price: 1.39 box of 4 (each approx 50g each). Location: Sainsbury's, North London. Sub-flavours: Seriously Crunchie, apparently. Nutritional unusualness: 26g carbohydrate, 12g fat per bar.
Snackspot reports: Well, Mars may be controversially axing their "King Size" lines but it looks like Cadbury Cakes are stepping in to fill that particular "snack gap", with possibly the largest cake bar I've ever seen (19K pic here shows it weighing in at a whopping 11cm from end to end). It is, of course, absolutely delicious - though bear in mind that, as a man, I am exactly in their target demographic for this product, and also can't be sure how much of its appeal is due to the authentic ("42%") Cadbury milk chocolate covering, and how much is just the marvellous "space butter" taste of our old enemy Hydrogenated vegetable oil (or "These cakes do not contain dairy cream", as the small print on the packet delicately puts it).

...Just for comparison purposes, those of you interested in "portion control" may prefer the alternative of SpongeBob SquarePants Mini Cereal Bars ("with Mallows and Chocolate Flavoured Drizzle", I've now lost the receipt but definitely bought in Tescos a while ago) - which, as the photo shows, turn out to be arguably the UK's tiniest cereal biscuits (at just over 6cm from end to end), ingeniously packaged in a wrapper that's almost twice as long, in a box that, at 16cm in height, is almost three times the size.

Comment: But they do call them "mini ceral bars" so maybe you can't be that outraged. The packaging is ludicrous though.

Comment: fair point (are you the same "Victoria" who provided the excellent scale pics of the Giant Fingers btw? http://www.snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=0404141134sbc ;)

in fact i'm not "outraged" per se, more in awe of the possibility that this is a psychological trick to get kids to eat smaller biscuits, even though they still come in an enormous box?

Comment: oh snackspot, that's terribly generous of spirit towards the biscuitmeisters! seasonal wackiness or something more sinister?
