Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Toffee Crisp Biscuits Confirmed sighting: Nestle Toffee Crisp Biscuits
Posted: 11:55 Tue 17-Apr-2007. Price: 2 packs for 1.00.
"Phillerena" reports: Found these in a new Pound shop that recently opened and thought they were new. Are they? I'm not sure. I have tried them and to me they just taste like normal Toffee Crisps, so I don't think there's actually any difference apart from the size. They just taste gravely and slightly chewy in a cheap sort of way. Nestle have also added some outrageous claims on the back of the pack: "FACT: It's a Toffee Crisp biscuit and your family will love it, it's as simple as that!"

...Sorry this is a slightly old sighting (I wasn't sure how new they were either), but it's just the excuse I need to mention the out-of-nowhere arrival of Terry's 3D (35p) biscuit bar, with a "cream flavour filling (40%)" that reminds me of the white stuff you get half-way down a Fab. That's if you can resist some of the amazing Easter Egg offers around at the moment (eg 2/3rds off in Sainsbury's) - is it just me, or does Asda have the most endearingly apologetic discount stickers in the UK: "1.08 for a few slices of melon? Sorry, we must have meant 81p 61p 41p - what werewe thinking?"

Comment: Does the price in Asda degrade before you very eyes? Or does it change on the sly when your back is turned?

Comment: The toffee crisp biscuits have been around for a while. Spoffoth - I think ASDA use those rotating (blind like) adds from the airport, the prices change about once every 30 Seconds lol.

Comment: I tried a 3D bar today. Absolutely rubbish! Nasty bland crap. I won't be buying again.
