Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Marks and Spencer Crazy Chocolate Overload dessert Confirmed sighting: Marks and Spencer Crazy Chocolate Overload dessert
Posted: 22:46 Tue 30-Aug-2005. Price: 1.29. Location: Marks and Spencer, Argyle Street, Glasgow. Sub-flavours: "Luscious Lemon Liscious".
"Stephen Craig" reports: Like the result of some experiment gone wrong at the Marks factory, designed to use all the bits left over from the other manufactured puddings, these two new alliterative desserts are pleasingly haphazard in terms of quantity of stuff you get in them and the actual composition of said things. The chocolate one (which, after less than a month on the shelves, has had its packaging redesigned - rendering this belated sighting already obsolete) is lovely. Bits of chocolate muffin, chocolate buttons, chocolate covered biscuit, white chocolate chunks, chocolate mousse and, er, cream (not chocolate) - all chucked in a generous 120g tub with no regard for aesthetics or equality of portion. Of course, I'm probably underestimating the complicated super-computer generated fractal algorithm that Marks actually have at work here to ensure each tub APPEARS as random as it can, while cunningly not being. But still, eh?

..."Stephen's" recent own-brand odyssey concludes (for now!) - please View comments for his reaction to the "Luscious Lemon Liscious" variety. It's also just the excuse I need to point out that, according to this poster in the London Whiteleys shopping centre, Marks apparently consider "cake" to be an entirely different product to "food" now, rather than just a subset of the aforementioned category.

Comment: The lemon one is similar (with lemon curd, lemon meringue, white chocolate, lemon mousse, cream and doubtless other lemon flavoured sundries) but, er, lemon. The lemon curd is more dominant compared to the other components in this one though, so its not quite as pleasant. Still good though and an excellent occasional treat. I'm still not sure what "Liscious" means though.

Comment: I've seen Deluxe McFlurries (chocolate bits with chocolate sauce?) advertised in McD's windows but not tried one so far, so feel free to send in a sighting (I could even take a photo of a poster if it needs an illustration...)

Comment: No need to take a photo as they are on the McDonalds UK site. It's the same as a normal Dairy Milk McFlurry but with cadburys chocolate sauce mixed in with the Ice cream.

Comment: unfortunatley this desert promises so much but just fails to deliver true joy. The quality of ingredients (especially the chocolate) just doen't seem to be there.

Comment: really average. Doesn't seem fit to be a M&S product in all honesty. Cheap mousse, soggy sponge bits, not enough crunch. Avoid!
