Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Strawberries and Cream/ Canadian Smarties Eh? Confirmed sighting: Nestle Kit Kat Strawberries and Cream/ Canadian Smarties Eh?
Posted: 13:18 Sat 11-Jun-2005. Price: 1.19 for 9 bars. Location: Morrisons, Leeds. Nutritional unusualness: Strawberry and cream flavoured coating (66%).
"Phillerena" reports: Since it's coming up towards summer I think Nestle have made a wise choice with this Kitkat flavour. It's Kitkat covered with "a strawberry and cream flavoured coating". I'm guessing the cream bit is actually white chocolate as that is how it tastes. The white chocolate or "cream" has ripples of pink strawberry flavour in it, sort of like you get in rasberry ripple icecream. It tastes quite nice, fruity and creamy, although the strawberry flavour could have been stronger. They get a bit sickly after too many. There was a big stand of them in Morrisons so I expect it won't be long before they appear in other supermarkets.

...And in other red-and-white-tinted originality, "aerisdead" provided this pic of the Canadian Smarties Eh? previously mentioned here, pondering: I got sent these by my girlfriend to celebrate my impending move to Canada. A bit more interesting than black and white Smarties with little maple leaves on the front of the white ones. For some reason the packet notes "Eat the red ones last, eh?" but I can't quite tell why, I mean, they all taste the same (though it's notable that they seem far, far more sugary than Smarties here, more similar to M and M's, to be honest). The sweets themselves are to celebrate Smarties being "Canada's number one candy coated chocolate", which seems unusually specific, considering front runners for that race are probably M and M's, Smarties, and... er...?

Comment: Guess I should explain the "eat the red ones last." Back in the seventies, Rowntree mounted an advertising campaign with the jingle based on "Does your chewing gum lose it's flavour". The jingle went "When you eat your smarties, do you eat the red ones last? Do you crunch them very slowly, or munch them very fast. They've got candy coated chocolate, so tell me when I ask. When you eat your smarties, do you eat the red ones last?"

Comment: hey "Crisp Commando", re: your previous "can we work together?" comment, I'd say "yes, probably" (especially if it stops you posting your URL in threads about chocolate biscuits :)

- basically just get in touch via the sightings form when you discover any new (or unusual) crisps, and you'll be credited with a proper "sighting" complete with link to ilovecrisps.com etc... deal?

Comment: He could say what's the point in your site ;)

Strawberries and Cream......not sure. They're okay, but there is just something about them....probably the giant red swirls:(

I'll have one now to find out.

Comment: The crisps site looks quite good, possibly serious competition for Snackspot, but doesnt do it for me cos theres no chocolate on it.

Comment: hi again "Crisp Commando" - no I don't make a living from the site, though fortunately it's quite easy to keep going (thanks to all the excellent sighting submissions) and actually quite a useful resource compared to all the rubbish websites the manufacturers usually do.

I like what you've done with yours, but you might want to think about putting more dates on things - eg I was quite interested by your Haggis Crisps story dated "Jun 13" (today!) http://www.ilovecrisps.com/news/haggis-crisps

though a quick search suggests you've actually pasted in an old Scotsman article from a year and a half ago :) http://heritage.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=43&id=1112642003

Comment: I picked up some Strawberries and Cream kitkats in Asda the other day. They were really nice, but a word of warning: store them in a cookie jar and it'll smell like rancid milk after a day or so. Not pleasant.

Comment: White chocolate Kit Kat but with a strawberry flavour wafer, very nice indeed but then I love white chocolate. Also bought Mcvities Mint chocolate Digiestives in the same shop, mint milk chocolate works much better than you'd imagine on a digi. Amazingly 5 minutes later in a "cheap shop" across the road I spotted some Mcvities berry blast Jaffa cakes. Didn't actually buy any so no idea what they are like. 86398 7
