Click pic to view comments - Semi-international sighting: Mars Fling Semi-international sighting: Mars Fling
Posted: 20:32 Thu 22-Nov-2007. Price: 19p. Location: The great Home Bargains, Preston. Nutritional unusualness: "From the makers of Maltesers, Chocolate with no strings attached" - other than 2.6g of saturated fat, 8.5g sugar per 15g bar.
"Yatton" reports: From Australia, 2 thin bars (like a Twix) with a layer of whatever it is that Maltesers are made of, topped with what tastes like a Milky Way. Unusual, and pretty nice. It's a bit like a Mars Delight that doesn't make you feel sick after eating it. The nutritional information (Australian "daily intake" figures) is rather misleadingly given per 15g bar!

...An intriguing discovery from first-time spotter "Yatton" while, in other invaders-from-Mars, I've paid up to 1.49-1.99 for the company's 200ml Super Thick Shakes - the Twix one offers a "Caramel Milk Drink" with a packet of Twix Mini Stix you can sprinkle into it; the M and Ms one is a lot like Moment Du Chocolat; and they both claim to be "So thick you can stand your straw up", though it isn't a particularly sturdy straw. Dairy drinkers may also be tempted by Muller's Yoghurt smoothie spin-off of their One A Day fruit corners, or the Toffee Nut Hot Chocolate and Creme Brulee Latte that Starbucks have added to their usual seasonal Gingerbread Latte - maybe next year they could license these somewhat-more-imaginative Stilton, peanut butter and Jamaican ginger cake shakes?

Comment: I had the Twix shake last night. The 'Caramel Milk Drink' was good and tasty, but the 'Mini Stix' were a bit pointless; too small to fit in the straw I just had to spoon them out at the end - I may as well not have bothered putting them in.
