Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Texan bar Confirmed sighting: Nestle Texan bar
Posted: 12:13 Thu 18-Aug-2005. Price: 40p. Location: Texaco garage, Essex Road, London. Nutritional unusualness: "Milk chocolate covered chew bar" - 0.9g protein, 23.1g carb, 3.2g fat (in 30g bar).
"Olly" reports: Although not the true grail (Olde English Spangles), still a fair enough idol of the retro sweet-spotters, and congratulations to Nestle for the re-launch. A 30g bar, shorter than the old version, but the same ripples etc to the chocolate (enjoy the "fat-reduced cocoa powder"),which falls off when you bite it as per the old version. Tasted slightly of artificial sweetener - the ingredients list "Humectant (Glycerol)" which might explain it. Authentic part-burnt taste for the centre. Sure is a mighty(ish) chew.

...And extra congratulations to first-time spotter "Olly" for having sufficiently detailed memories of the original to be able to compare it with this relaunch (in accordance with Snackspot prophecy). In other retro revivals: "tasha" reports paying 99p in Boots, Liverpool for a bag of Werther's Original Limited Edition Butter Mints (described as "a cross between a Werther's Original and a Murray Mint"); The Grocer magazine anticipates a "clash of the biscuit titans" as Burton's take on McVitie's Jaffa Cakes with a Cadbury Milk Chocolate version; and Kraft's "Does anyone still buy them?" Dime bars are to be renamed Daim, in order to bring them "in line with Europe".

Comment: In my local shop the Dime renaming has already happened. I suggest "There ain't nothing like a Daim" would make a good advertising strapline.

Comment: :D brilliant slogan lee! do we have to pronounce 'daim' in a cod-continental accent now? if it means better access to the mini-daims that you get in duty free, i am all for it.

Comment: Talking of retro goodies, does anyone know if Yo-In yoghurt bars are still available? I think I last saw them in the mid-90s. They were freeze dried yoghurt in a bar so it was kind of crunchy with a creamy coating. I know they were available in strawberry and vanilla, Superdrug used to do them but they disappeared and I'd love to find them again.

Comment: hahaha - found some in Leeds - the last ones went this morning to me - but the bloke is going to the cash and carry on Sunday so will get some more - it's a little newsagent on Wetherby Road, on the roundabout where the McD's is - just round corner from the Co-Op, on the way out of Harehills. Will post when he has some more!

Comment: I can confirm the Essex Road sighting of texan bars. I have eaten two of them, and they are definitely shorter than I remember (mind you, I was not as tall in the 70's). Actually they were a bit disappointing, a bit like an overpriced 'Chomp' bar. The caramel is an interesting white texture though, as my brother (Dancefloor terrorist)and I were weirdly discussing about a month before I found them! The $%&* didn't tell me he'd bought the whole box though!!!

Comment: Texan = RUBBISH. Tiny, not half as chewy, the chocolate doesnt fall off and into your lap. This is just some poor excuse to release an expensive (33p) tiny little nougat chew onto the market and cash in on people with fond memories of chewing on a single chocolate bar for 3 hours.

POOR !

Comment: This is from the nestle web site so i cant see where you are getting texan bars from they were discontinued in 1984 cos of the miners strike ... muppets

Iíve been looking in the shops for these Confectionery lines and canít seem to find them anymore, where are they sold? Are they still available? Bunny Tots, Candy Tots, Tiger Tots, Cabana, Caramel Wafer, Coffee Matchmakers, Golden Cup, Foxís Fruits and Mints, Good News, Maverick, Mint Cracknell, Novo, Nutty, Pretzel Flipz, Prize, Reward, Secret, Splicer, Texan, Triple XXX mints, Vice Versas, Coffee Walnut Whip, Yes cake bars, Yorkie Almond, Nutter, Honeycomb, Peanut.

We are sorry to inform you that the products listed above have been withdrawn from our range due to the high cost of production and the relatively low level of sales. We would like to assure you that the decision to withdraw any product is reached only with great reluctance and we regret any disappointment this product's absence has caused you.

Comment: The Texan has been brought back as part of the blast from the past promotion. It is available for 6 weeks which you should have worked out by reading all the other posts.

Comment: They're 45p each in my local shop. Back in the 1970s you could go into a sweetshop with 45p and you'd need a wheelbarrow to carry out all your purchases. Has anyone seen them selling for more than that anywhere in the country, or have I paid the most ?? And they're not as chewy, or as big as they used to be in the 70s either. With the original bar, you'd bite into one end and literally have to use all your strength to pull the bar away from your mouth leaving a long pointy trail of the chewy filling hanging from the part still in your hand. On a cold day, one Texan bar would take you half an hour to chew through.

Comment: We're in Bradford, not far from Leeds so I'll be looking out for those Texans (I have fond memories of nearly ripping my teeth out with those!)

Just like with the Creme Egg, everyone is saying they are smaller, but don't forget we were kids then, with lickle hands and teeth! I went into my old primary school assembly hall a few years ago, and I could have sworn it had halved in size.....

Comment: If it's a help, the Texan is in plentiful supply at all the BP garages I've tried in Buckinghamshire. But I thought it tasted rubbish, certainly not worth the 50p asking price- luckily it's on 3 for a £1.

Comment: Golden cup were lush. They seemed to disappear when rolo bar came out - equally lush until they put them in plastic wrappers rather than foil...then they disappeared too. Candy tots coming back would be a dream come true. However foxes glacier mints and fruits are widely available in big bags in shops such as woolworths.

Comment: Finally stumbled across a batch here in Ipswich, arbitrarily priced at 40p. Got the feeling that Mr Shopkeeper made up the price there and then. Tasted mighty fine to me but didn't last long.

Comment: Texan bars were/are the greatest choccie chew bar in the world ever. When I spotted them in my local Tesco Express (Southampton) I almost had a heart attack with pathetic excitement. Only Texan bars can turn a 33 year old into an 8 year old again. Needless to say I bought a handful of them, and will probably order a box online. Nice one Nestle!

Comment: just this second eaten one after all these years. i don't know how it compares to the original Texan bar though- time has faded my memory somewhat. it was nice... but like the person above said, it's very similar to a Chomp (perhaps a little more creamy?)...
Posted: 18:15 Tue 04-Oct-2005 by "GTO" # permalink comment
Comment: Yes, I would say it was creamier than a Chomp. Chomps tend to be quite tough even when warm, and the chocolate flakes.

Comment: I'm a fan of individuality with branding as much as anyone. And I think that Diam just sounds stupid to English ears, and it a branding mistake.

But not buying Jif because they renamed it Cif is the height of stupidity.

Comment: I dont think it was a concious decision but in each case of rebranding I have dropped items that i once used or ate a lot. I stopped buying opel fruits when they changed to starburst although I loved them and always had a pack about the house, I stopped buying Jif when it changed too, I dont buy snickers any more, and I have also not had a dime since the name change, funnily also I dont buy squre crisps now as they are walkers not smiths. I didnt realise it really till I looked at this site.
