Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Pizazz Confirmed sighting: Nestle Pizazz
Posted: 11:37 Fri 14-Oct-2005. Price: 3.99 (probably). Location: Totness. Sub-flavours: Totally Nuts, Cookies 'n' Cream, Ginger Jaffa Snap, Fudgery Crunch, Raspberry Mischief. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Luncheon Voucher" reports: More attempts at the end of the market known as "up" from the Swiss chocolate/ dairy/ cereals keiretsu. Not sure they have the "indefinable dynamic quality" the name implies, but not unpleasant. Nicely rich, especially the "Fudgery Crunch", (which I believe is also a practice illegal in 20 US states...). The "Ginger Jaffa Snap" is a bit lacking in the ginger department though. You get about 25 chocs per box which works out at about 16p a pop... pricey unless someone else buys 'em for you.

...While, in other fruit-based confectionery (for the ladies!), "Em" was equally startled by these Belgian White Chocolate Coated Strawberries ("Only 9% strawberry by weight") at Marks and Spencer Simply Food, Leigh Delamare Services, M4, relating: These whole cereal-style freeze-dried strawberries coated with white chocolate are surprisingly large, making them somewhat unwieldy to masticate. The sensation is not unlike having a gobful of Nestle's Double Berry Chocolate. Could possibly be improved by using smaller or halved strawberries, but it is certainly one to try if you favour white chocolate and the characteristic intensity of freeze-dried fruits.

Comment: The M+S chocolate covered strawberries rule. Quite a few just arrived in Japan for distribution to friends...

Comment: I am now addicted to Pizazz. :( I'm on my second box in a week. The Ginger Jaffa Snap and Raspberry Mischief are to die for, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. At this rate I'll be obese by Christmas. Hurrah!

Comment: I picked up a box of Pizazz at the local Asda after erroneously visiting the seasonal products aisle. They are pretty darn tasty - I second the shout out for Raspberry Mischief - but I'm not sure I'm willing to pay £3.98 for another box.

Comment: Hmmm. They were £5.99 at Tesco!

Comment: It's OK, panic over, I've figured it out. The boxes come in two sizes - you'd bought normal size (£2.99 at Tesco), I'd bought greedy size (£5.99 at Tesco).

Comment: Clearly I need to go to Tesco more often.

For crying out loud Nestle, they're just bloody chocolates...

Comment: Oh no, they're not "just bloody chocolates", they're miniature chocolately orgasms that explode with a crunch in your mouth... That was a bad analogy wasn't it...?

Comment: A swoon is not a shape, Nestle. Chocolate does not have the capacity to hug. Where does the etymology of the word come into this garbage and why? In what way does having a scoop shaped lid in particular make these easier to share? In what way is adding shortcake/fudge etc breaking the mould of traditional chocolates?


Incidentally, style savvy independent etc... women probably don't have lives that revolve around mediore chocolate.

Comment: Even at their newly reduced prices [the big boxes are now £3.99 / the slightly smaller boxes just 99p on the post-Christmas shelves of virtually every supermarket], the Pizazz chocolates are not to my liking. They're all a bit too crunchy for me. Every variety has something hard and crunchy mixed in with the chocolate - which is nothing special anyway. I suppose Ferrero Rocher fans will like them, but give me the soft centres in a box of Quality Street anyday.

Comment: I know this is technically the wrong page to be discussing this, but was anyone else disappointed by the retro Quality Street? the gooseberry one was the only one that tasted any different (and even that didn't particularly taste of gooseberry...)
