Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Coco Pops Mega Munchers Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Coco Pops Mega Munchers
Posted: 17:38 Sat 23-Dec-2006. Price: 2.09/ 375g. Location: Asda, Wembley Park. Nutritional unusualness: Slightly less sugar, calories and fat than Coco Pops classic, for what that's worth.
Snackspot reports: If you want a picture of future Christmasses, imagine the Coco Pops monkey singing a different version of the same advertising jingle - for ever. Yes, this year ends much like the last, with the arrival of Kellogg's "munchiest crunchiest brekkie yet" - they still taste like Coco Pops, but oddly resemble an eat-with-milk miniature version of the recently-relaunched Cadbury Snaps.

...Anyway, I'm already excited to see which of this year's seasonal tie-ins receive the most radical reductions after Boxing Day, though let's hope we won't have to wait as long as I did for the (intriguingly textured) Jane Asher Christmas Pudding Muffin Mix that I snapped up for just 47p in an Edinburgh Somerfield in August of this year. If you don't fancy baking your own, Sainsbury's were recently doing a 2-for-1 deal on Muffilicious Muffins -almost as appetising as Warburtons' 4 Oven Bottom Muffins which, on closer examination, turned out to be 4x muffin-like bread rolls cooked in the bottom of an oven, rather than an unspecified number of "Bottom Muffins" which required 4 ovens in their preparation, somehow. Have a good one!

Comment: Well, by coincidence, i spotted those Warburtons oven bottom muffins today in the local newsagent and was going to get them, then i thought, 4 won't fill me up so i opted for a 6 pack of Kingsmill best of both rolls

Comment: The Kaptain has been absent from the snacking spot for a long time cycle. But at the Christmas time he happened again upon this site and was happied by the link back through time to the Mars Christmas, a superb kustom kandy kontraption.

Great days thinks the Kaptain, great fantastic days.

The Kaptain wishes all a merry festive time and advises his snacking spot komarades to eat kilos and feel violently ill. In this way, you will make the Kaptain smile.

Comment: The Kaptain kurrently inhabits the green flowing isles of the Northern Irelands*. This often presented difficultinesses for the Kaptain as he was unable to be first to the Snacking spot with his new sightings. The Kaptain would buy a tasty brek and refrain from the eatings until it was phototated and documented for the Snacking spot, only to find he had been beaten in his reportings by a 'mainlander'. In such situations the Kaptain would have to says naughties and tear his klothes.

*Doubters should be able to konfirm the Kaptain's location by tracerouting his IP.

Comment: no kidding charl, they definitely have similar posting styles - in the end, ignoring polarbear's odder contributions seemed to do the trick, but I hope I haven't spoken too soon :)

Comment: I've only ever posted here as 'Marquez' but feel free to speculate, my ip should be available to you Snackspot? since you were able to ban it and reinstate it recently, interesting that he takes it off topic, but then that's what people who make silly comments do ;-)

Comment: I can't remember the name of the cereal, but from the picture these resemble a cereal that I always eat when I'm in France...'Choco' something anyway. I love that French cereal so i'll be trying these to see if they're similar. I never was that keen on Cocopops to be honest though.

Comment: Bought these new coco-pops today. Great. I first had this kind of cereal as a kid on holiday in majorca, then again in france. I am sure they were launched in the uk at some point but disapeared more quickly than banana bubbles. Glad to see them back, although I continue to be saddened by the carefree dilution of the coco-pops brand. They survived a re-naming but I am not sure they will survive all these spin-offs :P Think I'll have a bowl before bed.

Comment: Tried Mega Munchers for the first time today...and have had 3 servings of it already!! This is the yummiest chocolatey cereal on the market at the moment. Really chocolatey flavour curls that make the milk taste delicious, but also keep their flavour themselves. They stay pretty crunchy in the milk too (I suppose that's why Kellogg's have called them 'Mega Munchers'). 10/10. I am going to get another box to snack on, as they are even more satisfying than snacking on chocolate itself, in my opinion! I definitely recommend them if you haven't tried them yet.
