Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Just Born Mike and Ike Confirmed sighting: Just Born Mike and Ike
Posted: 21:25 Tue 03-Oct-2006. Price: 1.09. Location: Woolworths, Brighton. Sub-flavours: Fabulous Fruits, Berry Blast, Tropical Typhoon. Nutritional unusualness: Advertised as "fat free" (albeit 91% carbohydrate, 0% protein).
"Iain Gowers" reports: Saw these and I couldn't believe my eyes. This previously was only available in Cybercandy as an import from America. These are 180g bags, with UK details. Please also note that the "Fabulous Fruits" are called "original fruits"

......in the US, we presume. Anyway, in other semi-foreign fruitiness, I wasn't too taken with the Halls Fruit Breezers I found in Cyprus (apparently available in a wide range of flavours), though they still sound preferable to Lemsip Wild Berry or Hot Orange. Speaking of which, "Finland, Australia, New Zealand, [or] anywhere in Europe" seem likely locales for "In Search Of Wildberry's" almost alarming quest, as follows: Please can someone help me to find Fanta Wildberry (or Wild Berries or Crazy Wildberry), I'm in the UK but I need it imported from somewhere. Someone must know where I can get it from. I'll pay anything for bulk or even a can. If anyone has seen it somewhere in the UK can you tell me where you have seen it so I can go get it? I am extremely desperate. Your replies will be deeply appreciated.

Comment: ya i got them from woolworths, they had them in 3 varieties. big or small bags. i tried the red pack (tropical) i think and the blue pack (very berry) er or somthing like that. some of them are ok, nice even but other taste rather artificial. nicer than jelly beans though not as cool as jellybelly. they're fat free.

Comment: Saw them in Woolies in Camberley and thought the Tropical Typhoon flavour was great. Also noticed Mike and Ike adverts behind the goal at Everton.

Comment: They were given away free at Glastonbury. They're not amazing, though good value at zero pence. Remind me of Tootie Frooties.

Comment: The packets look identical to skittles, i acctidently picked up a pack thinking they were sour skittles (they come in bags same size, and also red or green).

They are tasty though!
