Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Sainsbury's Orange Crisp Chocolate Confirmed sighting: Sainsbury's Orange Crisp Chocolate
Posted: 21:43 Tue 26-Apr-2005. Price: 0.89. Location: Sainsburys (Brookwood and Camberley). Sub-flavours: Bubbles, Mint Creme, Milk Chocolate and Cookies. Nutritional unusualness: Per 4 squares (!!) 123.8 calories, 7.5g fat.
"lex1977" reports: Well it looks like Sainsbury's have brought out a whole new range. The Orange Crisp chocolate is great! It is described as "layers of zesty orange flavoured milk and dark chocolate with a crispy sugar crunch". Quite frankly it beats the Cadbury's orange crisp one hands down. The chocolate is flavoured with orange oil, and the crispy bits are not the key element. The mixture of dark and milk chocolate works really well. You wouldn't guess this was a supermarket brand chocolate. The Bubbles chocolate was disappointing - your standard bubbly texture (similar to Wipsa, or Cadbury's version), but tasting very much of supermarket chocolate. The Mint Creme was amazing! I loved it anyway!! Described on the packet as "dark chocolate with a mint fondant filling". Similar to After Eights in taste, but in a chunky bar of chocolate. Milk Chocolate and Cookies - defined as "Milk chocolate with crunchy cocoa cookie pieces". The chocolate cookie pieces made a change from the normal biscuit flavours, but while the chocolate was nice, I didn't rush to buy it again.

..."lex1977" provides a comprehensive own-brand diversion into the world of crispy chocolate here, though sadly receives no bonus points for spotting the Cadbury Digestives which first appeared last year, commenting: I was a bit sceptical about these, as I'm not keen on milk chocolate digestives, and more fond of the McVitie's plain chocolate ones. However I was pleasantly suprised. The chocolate definitely tastes like Cadbury's, and basically its just a giant circular Cadbury's animal biscuit, so if you like those, these will go down a treat.

Comment: Cadburys have done a new biscuit range, theres the oat and fruit ones, shortcake ones and even Bournville topped biscuits. Much nicer than the previous ones I have been informed.

Comment: Saino's have got some nice low-fat lollies in the freezer section. I had one that was a pineapple sorbet covered in Kiwi ice (with real Kiwi seeds included). Quite nice, in a guilt-free sort of way, but my wife didn't like it. More for me. You get 3 in a box which is bit of a swizz. I mean: if there are two of you and you both like them, you hve to arm wrestle for the spare.

Comment: Mmmmmm, a new orangey-chocolate to try...I still haven't managed to get hold of any chocolate orange digestives so now I will have two orange chocolate missions next time I go shopping. 22635 2 62
