Confirmed sighting: Crusha Wild 'n' Fruity/ White Chocolate Milkshake Syrup
Posted: 22:38 Tue 31-May-2005. Price: £2.41/ 740ml bottle. Location: Booker, Bath. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: The milkshake market has hotted up considerably over the last 12 months or so, but traditional champion Crusha hasn't just rested on its laurels while the likes of Robinsons and Nesquik muscle in and expand their brands respectively. The latest move sees the Crusha range expanded with another two flavours, taking the total to, as far as this snackspotter can establish, a whopping 10 varieties. At first your reporter suspected white chocolate would just be a sneaky rebranding of the existing "Vanilla Ice Cream", but it seems to be a whole new flavour, tasting of exactly what it claims to, and in a much less sickly manner than I feared. Wild 'n' Fruity is a bit less interesting, blending raspberry, blackberry along with the less-likely blackcurrant and apple, but coming up with something not vastly different in flavour from Robinson's raspberry-and-strawberry variety. Which, of course, still makes it extremely nice.
..."Stuart Campbell" comes up with an alternative explanation for the UK's recent increase in milk sales (though all credit to CNN for using the phrase "on the heels of a porridge comeback") - please View comments for "Stuart's" controversial views on suggested dilution ratios...

Comment: And as with all Crushas, you need so little of it (much less than the recommended one-part-to-seven) for a strong-tasting shake that a single bottle will last you for months. Why the whole range isn't more widely available in the little supermarket-sized bottles is a mystery to this correspondent.
