Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Burton's Jammie Dodgers Cheeky Mango Confirmed sighting: Burton's Jammie Dodgers Cheeky Mango
Posted: 15:42 Thu 22-Jun-2006. Price: 39p. Location: Farnworth, Bolton. Nutritional unusualness: 82 cals,1.0g of Protein, 12.8g of Carbohydrates, 3g of Fat, 0.4g of Fibre and trace salt [per biscuit, presumably].
"EripmaV" reports: A deliciously different alternative to the plain Raspberry offering. A luminous goo in the middle of two shortcake biscuits, who could want more? The best part is that they were on offer and were only a measly 39p a pack! Even though these are Mango flavoured, they still contain the plum-based jam. With these I also purchased some Orange flavoured but totally forgot about posting them on here and devoured the lot with a cup of tea.

...And welcome to first-time spotter "EripmaV", with this latest "Your tastebuds will tango when tasting cheeky mango" limited edition of the biscuit previously incarnated as Vanilla Thriller, and Jammin' with Vimto. Otherwise it's not a particularly busy time of year for biscuit news (NiceCupOfWhatever is leading with a HobNobs 21st Birthday Poetry Competition), but there is talk that United Biscuits will soon be launching both McVitie's Fruitsters ("biscuits that contain real fruit, whole grains and nuts"), plus chocolate and vanilla varieties of Hob Nob Creams.

Comment: Isn't it about time they brought back Chocolate Dodgers? Surely they would sell better than mango ones!?

Comment: they've done a limited edition for halloween called 'coffin dodgers', right?

Comment: Or the versions split in half and suspended in formaldehyde, "Artful Dodgers"?

Or "Roger The Dodgers", with a specially enlarged hole... well, you can see where I'm going with that.

Comment: hob nobs are the only biscuits ive ever found where the plain ones are better than the chocolate covered ones

Comment: Jammie Dodgers are horrible and cheap tasting, I have no idea why they are so popular. They seem to be going down the same road Kitkat went with all their new flavours. What next?
Posted: 15:06 Fri 23-Jun-2006 by "charl" # permalink comment
Comment: what next? cheese dodgers. please, cheese dodgers.

Comment: I never eat jammie dodgers they're for kids

Comment: Cheesecake Dodgers, there's an idea.
Posted: 01:15 Sat 24-Jun-2006 by "polarbear" # permalink comment
Comment: There's a good idea, cheesecake dodgers, but it's gotta be strawberry cheesecake, that would get me eating them

Comment: I'm surprised we haven't seen Ice-cream Dodgers yet. They seem like the kind of biscuit that would transfer well to frozen form.
Posted: 14:49 Sun 25-Jun-2006 by "bobince" # permalink comment
Comment: Put me down for the ice cream dodgers!

And I'm with you polarbear. I can't understand why the chocolate Hob-nob is so revered; I don't think the two textures go together well at all.

Comment: Oooooh yes! Ice-cream Dodgers! YUM! :oP
Posted: 15:34 Sun 25-Jun-2006 by "GTO" # permalink comment
Comment: You may think differently, but I think the case of plain being better than chocolate covered applies to Rich Tea and Digestive aswell.
Posted: 09:20 Mon 26-Jun-2006 by "Phillerena" # permalink comment
Comment: Are you all mad? Choccy Hobnobs are gorgeous! I cant decide if the 'naked' ones are better though.
Posted: 15:25 Mon 26-Jun-2006 by "polarbear" # permalink comment
Comment: Ooh a bit of a debate going on this, bobince, exactly what i mean mate, GTO, chocolate covered rich teas? never heard of them but i'd say they would be nicer than plain rich teas which are boring and naff, and come on, i'd much rather have a packet of milk choc, plain choc or choc-and-caramel digestives than a packet of plain no-choc digestives which are best used for making cheesecake bases
Posted: 19:09 Mon 26-Jun-2006 by "GTO" # permalink comment
Comment: That's a point actually, the caramel disgestives are awesome. But yeah, Chocolate rich teas are just as common as regular.
Posted: 21:05 Mon 26-Jun-2006 by "grotbag" # permalink comment
Comment: Eh? I'd hardly say they're just as common yeah, they're available in some supermarkets but they're not nearly as frequently stocked as the bog standard rich tea. Can't say I was impressed with caramel digestives either - far too chewy. Not a patch on toffypops, which have the added advantage of not dislocating your jaw at the same time.

Comment: No-one else seen the Orange Dodgers?
Posted: 18:31 Thu 29-Jun-2006 by "polarbear" # permalink comment
Comment: I've never tried toffypops, are they soft toffee and shortbread covered in chocolate?
Posted: 21:03 Thu 29-Jun-2006 by "Phillerena" # permalink comment
Comment: Yes they are and theyre gorgeous. They're usually sold in cheap shops.
Posted: 21:58 Thu 29-Jun-2006 by "grotbag" # permalink comment
Comment: Yep, and asda. Which is probably down as one of those cheap shops. They were half price for a while, but have no gone up to a scandelous 92p. You usually get 3 packs in the 99p shop. Bit of a rarity in there though.

Comment: They look very nice indeed, i'll try them when i find them in a shop, i rarely shop at asda though

Comment: Re: "Targaff"'s Orange Dodger query... I've made a sighting in Tesco, Douglas, Isle of Man: Too little jam (marmalade?) per Dodger & the jam's far too bitter to make me want to buy them again. Anyone else noticed a recent change for the worse in the milk choc hobnob recipe? 88109 1
