Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Kinder Maxi King International sighting: Kinder Maxi King
Posted: 23:14 Wed 15-Jun-2005. Price: "Reduced only 20c". Location: The Cope, Dungloe, Donegal, Ireland. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Keir Hardie" reports: "Milk Chocolate And Crushed Hazelnut Covered Wafer With Smooth Milky And Caramel Filling" (phew) - I got these on holiday - short dated and reduced to clear, these seem to be a semi-international thing, with packaging in English and Russian (and a third language similar to Russian - Bulgarian?). They're nice enough. Rather mushy though after several days in my jacket pocket and they leave a bit of a mess on the scanner. I'll put the two I still have wrapped in the fridge, see if they can be revived.

...Something of a tricky one to classify, this - it should probably qualify as a "semi-international" grey import if it isn't native to the country where "Keir" found it, but since that happened to be Ireland (and therefore outside the UK), I guess it's an "International" sighting after all. Anyway, in other biscuity bulletins: those "25% less fat" versions of McVitie's Digestives and Chocolate Digestives are now appearing in the shops, along with what appear to be McVitie's answer to Burton's Maryland brand, in the form of Choc Chip 'n' Chunk and Hazelnut, Choc Chip 'n' Chunk packs of cookies (around 59p for 150g), claimed in The Grocer magazine to contain "up to 20%" more chocolate than "equivalent Maryland cookies".

Comment: I have seen these in my local independent supermarket along with Kinder Pingui and Kinder Milk Slice. Interestingly they also had Jammie Dodgers Vanilla Thriller. I have not as yet been tempted to sample these wares but when I do you shall be the first to know.
