Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cruga Biltong Confirmed sighting: Cruga Biltong
Posted: 20:00 Tue 31-Oct-2006. Price: 1.99/ 34g bag. Location: Newsagent near Kentish Town tube. Sub-flavours: Beef, Chilli Beef, Peppered Beef, "Beersticks", Ostrich, Kudu. Nutritional unusualness: As little as 3.6g fat per 100g (Ostrich), no salt content specified.
Snackspot reports: I know they're madly expensive, but I was going to a book launch party and wasn't sure if they were going to be serving food, so I took along a packet each of Ostrich and Kudu, just in case. And I'm glad I did - not only were the salami-like slices a nourishing nibble between the intermittent trays of canapes, but I was approached by complete strangers for most of the evening, inquiring [my paraphrase] "Are you eating biltong? Bring it on!" There wasn't much between them, but ultimately we preferred the Ostrich to the Kudu, the latter bearing little trace of its antelope-like origins.

...In other Halloween horrors: blood-orange-flecked Orangina Rouge seems to have toned down its name to the oddly euphemistic Sanguine Orange; both Cadbury Creepy Cakes and the Nestle Smarties Pumpkin have been resurrected from last year; and I'm fairly certain I spotted some Chewits Fangs in Iceland the other week, on top of the Chewits Fruities jellybeans that "charl" mentions here.
