Confirmed sighting: Findus Flips
Posted: 14:39 Mon 28-Nov-2005. Price: £1. Location: Tesco, Edinburgh. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Taras Young" reports: Bizarrely tasty combination of soft, sweet pancakes with a hot savoury filling. Ironically, they're very much like Nestle Pretzel Flipz in that the taste of the sweet/ savoury combination is really quite bizarre but you keep going back for more. Comes in a box of 6, but you have to microwave them two at a time according to the instructions. Despite having the same fillings, they taste virtually nothing like Findus Crispy Pancakes.
...And appear to be currently available in Cheese and Ham and possibly also "Chilli Beef" varieties, possibly to distance them from the "Raspberry Ripple" or "Milky Chocolate" Findus Sweet Pancakes of early 2001. Meanwhile, in other crepe-shaped creativity: I quite enjoyed the microwaveable Wha Wou! Chocolate Crunchy Crepes I found recently in Waitrose, at least compared to the Gordon Brown-endorsed Kingdom Bakers Pancake Pods (in strawberry, raspberry or blueberry, 49p)
that I had to go all the way to Edinburgh to track down - finally locating them in the same Scotmid branch that was promoting Cuisine De France's interpretation of that noted Gallic delicacy, the "Ambient Sausage Roll".

Comment: oops, just found this in an old issue of "The Grocer":
"The pancakes are third time lucky for Findus, which launched a sweet pancake range called Sweet Pancakes in the early 90s and again in 2000. Both lasted about nine months but were later withdrawn [...]
The line is being launched in six flavours - Choc 'n' Roll, Super Strawberry, Really Raspberry, Cheese and Ham, Mexican Cheese, and Chilli Beef (rsp £1.49 for a six-pack)."
