Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Butterscotch Milk Chocolate Digestives Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Butterscotch Milk Chocolate Digestives
Posted: 21:54 Fri 02-Mar-2007. Price: 2 for £1.80. Location: Somerfield, Sheffield. Nutritional unusualness: No hydrogenated vegetable oil; 82kcal, 5g sugar per biscuit.
"Grace" reports: These are another new variation of the chocolate digestive. They are milk chocolate that is flavoured with butterscotch. They are quite nice, a bit on the sweet side. They are a limited edition so I guess will be made permanent if they are popular enough!

...Weirdly, I assumed (but didn't verify) that the Butterscotch flavour was in the biscuit rather than the chocolate, but let's not start another Orange Smarties debate over it. Anyway, in other choccy coatings: "Ooohh, look what I've just found! Can't wait to try this one! Keep a lookout Snackspot!" exclaimed "Rose" regarding news of Cadbury's imminent Dairy Milk Double Choc ("a chocolate bar with a smooth liquid centre", due March 26, from 43p), while Kellogg's have followed up last year's preposterously-priced Crunchy Nut Nuts About Bars (Sainsbury's, £2.19 for 3) with the tastier (and only slightly cheaper) Crunchy Nut Peanut Crisp Bars (Chocolate or "Caramely", £1.89 for 4).

Comment: Dairy Milk Double Chocolate (as well as Dairy Milk Coconut Rough) has been in Ireland since September. Seems like they trail everything in Ireland first, eg Creme Egg Bar. I wouldnt rate it as being great, its a bit sickly (and i like sweet things!!!). The coconut one is better!

Comment: These butterscotch biccies are great, so much better than the boring choc+orange varieties.

Comment: Cadbury seem to be slow at bringing out decent new products here. Look at what our friends "Down Under" get: http://www.sweetstall.com/ [URL display truncated] That Snack bar looks great.

Comment: The butterscotch flavour IS in the chocolate of the biscuit to verify!

Comment: (with reference to Zeddy's entry) Wow! I am soo jealous. Some of those marshmallow chocolate bars look really appealing, as well as the Snacks one. I've emailed Cadbury (probably fruitlessly!) to ask them to please consider releasing some of those bars over here. Feel free to do the same!

Comment: I agree totally about the Cadbury bars. All they seem to bring out here are minging truffle like bars, we've already had the Melts and now a new bar with soft choc inside - enough is enough!

The "Snack" from australia is awesome - you can get it from cybercandy but it costs an arm and a leg. It's just like the old fry's five centres for those not familiar with it and it is YUM!

Comment: Rose, I too have tried the Cadbury email approach. They are a large corp who only care about their profit margin not real chocolate or its fans. :(

Comment: Yeah, though just because something's popular in Australia doesn't mean it'll work over here - remember the Violet/ Golden Crumble that was launched in the UK by Nestle a couple of years ago, then *never heard of again*...?


Posted: 17:05 Sun 04-Mar-2007 by "choccieman" # permalink comment
Comment: What was so disappointing with the golden crumble launch was that they didn't seem to consider how the market was becoming appreciative of decent chocolate so launching a product with a 'chocolate flavoured' coating was always going to be a disaster (shame coz the honeycomb was so much better than crunchie).

I don't like this sudden 'truffle' trend, 'ooh lets make a product with a praline that'll make em think its expensive/posh' - oh dear. Really not impressed with Nestle Heaven bars or cadbury melts. Most interesting thing I've seen recently is Thorntons new bars that look like they've been copied out of a Hotel Chocolat catalogue - quite nice though.

Comment: Ahem, I loved Violet Crumble! Not for the chocolate obviously (of which there was none), just the overall taste. More like cinder toffee than a Crunchie.
Posted: 18:01 Sun 04-Mar-2007 by "Phillerena" # permalink comment
Comment: Golden Crumble failed because it was at a time when Nestle were launching a new product every few days. It never had any marketing support and they never bothered to put real chocolate on it. And anyway - why would we want something that is a Nestle version of Crunchie?

Comment: If you want a REAL chocky biscuit to dip into your tea, try a Tim Tam from Australia- these are *AMAZING* (no, the Penguin brand just won't do). You can buy 4 different flavours from The Australia Shop located in Covent Garden or buy online at http://www.australiashop.co.uk

Comment: Alternatively, if you want to try timtams you could just buy some in sainsbury's.

Comment: Assuming your local Sainsbury stocked them. I have never seen them in my local one and my Tesco stopped selling them!

Comment: Mr Deepak has furnished me with a pack of the Butterscotch digestives in return for a handful of Her Majesty's shrapnel. I am not stunned, I have to say - said biscuit has a meagre smear of chocoloate rather than a goodly crust, and the taste is very placky. Still, mug of tea and John Candy film on telly will keep me going for a bit.
