Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Special K Bliss Strawberry And Chocolate Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Special K Bliss Strawberry And Chocolate
Posted: 17:35 Tue 21-Nov-2006. Price: 2.69/ 375g. Location: Sainsbury's, North London. Sub-flavours: Bliss Creamy Berry Crunch. Nutritional unusualness: Similar calories, only 2g sugar more ("per 30g serving") than ordinary Special K.
Snackspot reports: Have you, like me, always had a soft spot for Special K (and its numerous variants) but secretly wondered why they don't do a chocolate version? Well you need ponder no longer, thanks to this pioneering crossover between "healthy" and "indulgent" marketing - the freeze-dried strawberries and dark chocolate flakes are a huge improvement over the raspberries and cranberries in the so-so Creamy Berry Crunch alternative, while inexplicably not taking the nutritional tally much higher than the All-Bran Bran Flakes Chocolate, Coco Pops Mega Munchers or (to a lesser extent) Kellogg's Chocolate Wheats which "Abigael" recently alerted me to.

...While, in other surreal cereals, "These are quite expensive but taste very nice," pronounced "Grace" regarding Kellogg's All Bran Honey And Oat High Fibre Bars (2.13/ box, Somerfield, Sheffield, 3g of fibre, 98 calories per bar), deeming them: "Quite filling for only 98 calories. They are a mix of All Bran sticks, oats and puffed rice covered with honey. The honey is very prominent and combines well with the bran and oat taste. They are also fortified with vitamins, so quite a healthy snack too. I would definitely recommend, only downsight being the price!"
