Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Coconut Rough/ Butler's Irish International sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Coconut Rough/ Butler's Irish
Posted: 21:10 Thu 15-Mar-2007. Price: From 0.75 Euros (55g)/ 1.55 Euros. Location: Dublin Airport.
Another double-bill from "Zeddy", querying Cadbury's Coconut Rough as "Not sure where the 'rough' is. Not bad but nothing special either. I would have liked dark chocolate and/or toasted coconut. Still, there is no pleasing some people. Add some cherries and you could have a best seller!" Reassuringly, he seemed to prefer these Butler's Irish bars, proclaiming them "Quite tasty. The caramel is very soft and runny which makes breaking a piece off quite tricky. The name reminds me of Blakey of 'On The Buses' fame shouting in exasperation (I hope Olive doesn't work on the production line!)"

...Or, if you can't make it to the Emerald Isle, St Patrick's Day can come to you on Sat in the form of the much-reported Marmite Guinness, seen - but not sampled - by both "A" (2.49, Tesco, Scotland, "I was sure this was a joke. Maybe it is!? Guinness Marmite? As if that stuff wasn't bad enough. I couldn't bring myself to try it."), plus "P McD" (in Morrisons, Berryknowes Road), who agrees: I'm part of the "Hate Marmite" camp, so I'm not even going to pretend that I bought this, but I thought I would submit it as a gesture of goodwill to the "Love" camp.. : )

Comment: "Coconut Rough", just sounds like an obscene joke waiting to happen... Or is that just me?

Comment: Guinness Marmite - seen it. Tried it. It's ok. Much like marmite regular, if you like it, you like it. If you don't you don't. If you don't care, you don't care. The Guinness is lost amongst the overpowering strength of the marmite yeastiness. It should be called marmite with "guinness" on the label.
