Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Novartis Options Rum and Raisin flavour Confirmed sighting: Novartis Options Rum and Raisin flavour
Posted: 22:37 Wed 15-Feb-2006. Price: 1-odd. Location: Co-Op, Meanwood. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Phillerena" reports: I remember this being mentioned in the last Options discussion, and yesterday I found it in a one-off trip into the Co-Op. It comes in the old-style Options jar, the new one has now been given a tall and slender look. To me, the taste is very chemically and sickly, similar to the Rum and Raisin Yorkie, but not quite as nasty. My friend loves it though. I suppose I should be grateful that it doesnt taste as nasty as the Spiced Ginger flavour Options of last year.

..."Phillerena" forages outside Home Bargains for a change, while "Not a fan!" was "Hayley's" similarly downbeat verdict on the 22p Options Simply Cinnamon sold in Watford Tesco. In other powdery preposterousness: "99% fat free when added to skim milk", claims the box for Australian import While's Thick Shakes (1.99 for 4 sachets, Brent Cross Tesco) - not quite such an reassuring statistic when you find out that each 35g sachet is about two-thirds (ie 23g) sugar, though I can report that they're authentically "down with the thickness", as Richard Cheese might put it.
