Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: KFC Cool Mexican Toasted Twister Confirmed sighting: KFC Cool Mexican Toasted Twister
Posted: 17:35 Mon 19-Feb-2007. Price: £2.89, £3.89 for meal deal. Location: KFC, Swiss Cottage, London. Nutritional unusualness: No info available, though "Lime not included", apparently.
Snackspot reports: Further to my widely publicised struggles with vegetarianism, I've been forced to try these as a direct result of Sainsbury's the UK's industry-wide houmous recall. Obviously it's just the standard Toasted Twister with the bold - yet successful - addition of Lime Salsa, Sour Cream and Chive Sauce, yet overall a more substantial offering than McDonald's rival Chicken Snack Wrap (just over a quid, "tender chicken breast strip in a soft tortilla with Hellmann’s Extra Light Mayonnaise") or the return of our old friends, the Chicken Selects from May 2003.

...Things obviously move fast at Mickey D's, as the last two products seem to have already replaced January's Caramel Apple Pie Sundae (£1.29) - literally a caramel ice-cream sundae with an apple pie stuck in it. Still, in other frozen fruitiness, there's talk of a ice-cream yoghurt arriving this summer called Nestle Fruitcrunch, plus a raspberry flavour of Cadbury's Cornetto-style Flake 99 Cone.

Comment: Ah! That explains why I couldn't purchase houmous in my online Sainsbury's shop at the weekend. Thanks Snackspot.

Comment: I bet they actually are the same Chicken Selects from May 2003 as well. The ones they couldn't shift.
