Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Mini Cheddars Morso's Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Mini Cheddars Morso's
Posted: 23:32 Wed 03-May-2006. Price: 1.29/ 150g bag (though currently "two for the price of one" in this Tesco). Location: Tesco Express round the back of Westminster Abbey. Sub-flavours: Cheddar Cheese and Spring Onion; Mediterranean Herbs with Cheese. Nutritional unusualness: 25g fat per 100g, but also a surprising 6g sugar in there as well.
Snackspot reports: Partially confirming previous speculation about where you can get these on a "BOGOF" deal (and definitely demonstrating that they have an arguably defensible apostrophe on the packaging), these are indeed "like Mini Cheddars, but more so" - so much more cheesy, in fact, that they actually seem slightly less "Mini" than their conventional counterparts. Anyway, they're like posh crackers with what the ingredients suggest is "dried cheese" stuck to them - overall, I think I preferred the Cheddar Cheese and Spring Onion to the Mediterranean Herbs with Cheese, though experiments suggested that alternating between the two also formed a pleasingly complementary combo.

...In other savoury surprises: there's a new Sweet Chilli flavour (and two more conventionally "sweet" varieties?) of Ryvita Minis, while Kettle Chips appear to be flying in the face of "polarbear's" disapproval with their latest Buffalo Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil seasonal edition - why didn't they just call them "Pizza flavour", and be done with it?

Comment: not to open up this can of worms again but presumably, without the apostrophe, people might call them "Morsoss"?

Comment: couldn't they call them 'moresoes' and be done with it? or 'fancy mini cheddars'? it's a stupid name in any case. i give them six months.

Comment: I am very reluctant to get into the whole apostrophe thing again and even more reluctant to defend its use in 'Morso's' - however, I think I may have an answer to please everyone, including the pedants amongst us: perhaps the apostrophe has been *correctly* used to denote a missing 'e', as in Morsoes/Morso's. Sorted, everyone's happy!

Comment: PS: this explanation could also be used for the apparent grocer's apostrophe in 'potato's' - perhaps they were right all along... 74647 9

Comment: I know this is an old thread, but Morso's seem to have disappeared off the face of the planet. I have contacted United Biscuits customer service, and they have told me that they are still being produced, and should be available in numerous supermarkets, but I have not seen them now for a couple of months.

I would like to ask if anyone has seen them recently, and if so, where?
