Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Disney Mini Eggs (Honey Flavour) Confirmed sighting: Nestle Disney Mini Eggs (Honey Flavour)
Posted: 22:35 Mon 17-Jan-2005. Price: 99p/ bag. Location: Woolworths, Leeds. Nutritional unusualness: Honey flavoured white chocolate.
"Phillerena" reports: These are "Honey flavour white chocolate mini eggs" with a Winnie the Pooh theme. Now I love white chocolate, but if you are one of those that think it's too sweet, AVOID THESE. They are so sickly that it's unbelievable. They have an odd taste, sort of honey and Caramac mixed into one, but much sweeter. I don't know why they mixed honey flavour with white chocolate, but that's Nestle for you. They don't actually contain honey, just the good old "flavourings". I won't be buying these again. Winnie the Pooh can keep them.

..."Phillerena" avoids the difficult issue of why Pooh (and Piglet) appear to be reproducing in egg form here, but Easter isn't over yet - there's still talk of a "proper" Terry's Chocolate Orange creme egg at large, plus a mini-egg version of Nestle Fruity Smarties. Oh, and on the subject of sugary bee secretions, here's a special request for reviews of any jars of honey (new - or "old favourites") that you've purchased and enjoyed from the supermarkets of this great nation - please submit your comments (and pics) via the usual form.

Comment: Wilkin & Sons Tiptree Acacia Honey is absurdly pure runny stuff, in a naturally vibrant yellow. Great for cooking and spreading, but a bit nauseatingly sweet for use in hot drinks. They also make superb tea, mango chutney and a wide range of preserves including the legendary Little Scarlet, elevenses fans.

On the subject of eggs, anyone notice that Cadbury's Creme Eggs have undergone a subtle design change? The metallic blue on the wrapper has become purple - presumably part of Cadbury's make-everything-into-Dairy-Milk brand consolidation that put paid to Wispas.

Comment: I'm a bit weird with honey - it actually gives me a sore throat.

Comment: honeyspot.org.uk? i was looking at orange blossom honey this week and wondering if it actually tastes of orange blossom. can anyone tell the difference between it and 'normal' honey?

Comment: The Fruity Smarties eggs are already out...they look just like normal ones, in egg shape

Comment: I've got some loose leaf tea with orange blossom in it, it tastes like tea.

Comment: I don't know about orange blossom, but you can tell a "single flower" honey from a "no-name", mixed one. The stronger aroma from the flower will come through instead of being cancelled out by N other aromas from the other flowers.

This makes expensive honey excellent for toast and other things where you really get to taste it; I keep a jar of cheaper honey in for less refined cooking/sweetening tasks.

Comment: Honey and Caramac mixed into one? Sold. What Nestle really need to release is a Caramac easter egg - they should use Caramac more.

Comment: they used to do a full size all caramac egg. one of the great losses of modern confectionery.

Comment: Charl, yes, I wasn't sure I remembered correctly. I thought I might have dreamed the Caramac egg.
Posted: 14:55 Mon 24-Jan-2005 by "Phillerena" # permalink comment
Comment: Different Caramac products would be nice, what about Caramac Munchies, similar to Milkybar Munchies.

Comment: yes rob, i still dream they'll bring back the caramac egg so i can use it for a bikini top with a grass skirt...

Comment: I noticed the After Eight egg today in Woolies with actual mint fondant inside but does anyone remember the FRESH MINTY EGG that was around in the 80s? It was a milk choc egg the size of a a creme egg but with mint fondant inside. It was gorgeous and it should be back on the shelves!

Comment: Rowntrees Minty Eggs were discontinued around 1988. My dad used to be a rep for Rowntrees. They were the greatest eggs ever and I will gladly chair a campaign to bring them back!

Comment: I bought some cheap Quality Street eggs yesterday, they were like creme eggs filled with the various Quality Street fillings. Sadly there was no orange creme one :(

Comment: Minty Eggs were the best thing since, well, minty eggs. I have even emailed Nestle recently to ask if they plan to bring them back - I think we should encourage EVERYONE to do the same and see if we see them next Easter!

Comment: I'm well up for joining the campaign to being back the minty eggs! 74645 2 65
