Confirmed sighting: Leaf Chewits Xtremely Hot Lime
Posted: 23:28 Wed 31-Aug-2005. Location: Westmorland Service Station.
"the hatter" reports: Being a fan of sour things, and still crushed by the UK vs US Sour Skittles debacle, I was rather pleased to discover these hot chews. It's like having lime pickle confectionery, I swear the first one had more of an afterburn than my second, but there's no doubt about the hotness, and those who I've shared them with have also shared my surprise that there's no obvious capsicum source in the ingredients, given how the flavour on your tongue is strong, but it's the warmth at the back of the throat that builds up, moreso if you suck them, rather than chewing them a bit then swallowing. The sweets are somewhat larger than regular Chewits, but pretty much identical texture. Very tasty, and I'll be looking out for more.
..."the hatter" returns with this long-awaited sighting (which should have been available since "16th May 2005") - apparently they're also thinking of bringing back the ones that taste of Mint and Ice-cream. In other full-on fruitiness: Haribo promise to "send mouths into mayhem!" with Sour Strawbs that feature "all the looks of real strawberries" (£1.02/ 200g bag), while stories are emerging from New Zealand of the "kiwiberry or baby kiwi" - "a small sweet kiwifruit with an edible skin".

Comment: Yeah, I picked up a packet of Hot Lime about a month ago IIRC. I've always been a sucker for faux-lime sweets, but the hotness was surprisingly good too. Hooray!

Comment: Found hairless baby kiwi fruits in Fresh & Wild, Clifton, Bristol.
£2.99 for a (small) punnet full.
I'll have to buy some more to photograph as they were very moreish!
A bit odd-looking, they reminded me of the 'Moth Apples' in the first series of Look Around You.
The label says they were grown in France.
