Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Rolo Florida Orange Confirmed sighting: Nestle Rolo Florida Orange
Posted: 14:49 Wed 09-Feb-2005. Price: 49p. Location: Spar, Leeds. Nutritional unusualness: 24 calories per Rolo!.
"Kim" reports: Yet another new delight I hadn't heard about before it popped up in my local snack outlet. These are filled with what's described as "tangy Florida orange flavoured caramel" but, in my opinion, they're pretty much bog-standard Rolos with a bit of orange flavour stuck in. Nice enough, but hardly the refreshing taste the summery packaging suggests. If you like ordinary Rolos (which I don't) then no doubt you'll love these. But personally, I preferred the Irish Cream variety - "Florida Orange" doesn't deviate from the ordinary flavour enough.

...Nestle continue to keep "Kim" busy with this moderately unimaginative addition to the lacklustre Rolos line - presumably if the Kit Kat team get hold of them, then dark chocolate (and perhaps even Caramac?) Rolos cannot be far behind? In other orange-flavoured originality, there appear to be Coconut and Choc Orange additions to the ever-controversial Vodka Mudshake range, while It is a Ruffle bar, but not as we know it! announces "Zeddy" of the Jameson's Orange Ruffle bar he paid 22p for in "Hamilton" (probably not the one in New Zealand?).

Comment: We can quite safely say then that it is Nestle's new policy to launch endless variations on old favourites?

Comment: why would a UK candy bar refer to an area in the united states. Thats unusual

Comment: More produce from the diseased minds of Nestle! I can add to this one with two more unconfirmed sightings made last night in Jacksons. These names might well be wrong:

Mini Rolos + Honey - big, £1.40 bag full of Mini Rolos and 'chocolate coated honeycomb'. What with this and Golden Crumble, Nestle are making a real push for the Crunchie market. I didn't buy it as it was huge, and I quite possibly hate Rolos.

Liquid Polo Mints - little plastic cases containing what look suspiciously like little bath pearls. Presumably a minty version of those allegedly rehydrating ball things. Disgusting use of the Polo brand, in my book; not even the most tenuous relationship to the legendary toroidal mint.

Comment: isn't the 'florida' orange a reference to no pith? i thought there was florida or california style orange juices and they referred to the pith content (as well as a different orange varieties?)...

Comment: It's all because Mr David "Sunglasses Indoors" Caruso has agreed to snack constantly on Rolos throughout the next series of CSI:Miami. They had to make them orange so they wouldn't clash with his hair. In related news, Marg Helgenberger is considering an endorsement of "lapdancer thong" flavoured Rolos in the original CSI.

Comment: and gary sinise recommends 'hudson backwash' rolos for that authentic csi tight jawed look. man, that's a tie in i would go for...

Comment: So if he snacks on Rolos... still doesn't explain why he does that THING at the end of every episode.

No, don't pretend you don't know what I mean. The deep breath, put-sunglasses-on-with-one-hand movement, look to the side, hand on hip and STARE into the middle distance. Every show. I kid you not. Do you think it's a side effect of the Rolos?

It wouldn't be the first nasty rolo side effect story I've heard.

Comment: they could be low carb rolos. in which case, the rectal irregularities could well explain the poor assumed 'bad acting'.

Comment: Re: Polo

(From IRN)

"February 7 will see Polo launch two breath freshening products – Polo Liquid Orbs and Polo + Vivazol. The Polo Liquid Orb is filled with a liquid mint, 30 to a pack which retails at 75p. Polo + Vivazol offers a ‘unique blend of plant extracts – menthol, peppermint and parsley oil’ – to combat bad breath. It is available in the standard Polo roll pack which retails at 36p."

Comment: Please, someone else report them so I don't have to buy them. They look horrible, like Phant food capsules or something.

Comment: LOL I like the sound of them...something new and different. If I knew where to find some I'd buy some. 69489 6 53
