Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Cheesecake Lollies Confirmed sighting: Nestle Cheesecake Lollies
Posted: 19:44 Thu 31-Jan-2008. Price: 2.49. Location: Tesco, Inverness. Nutritional unusualness: 67% of your daily saturates per lolly.
While I'd been keeping an eye out for Thornton's individual Ice Cream luxury sticks or Cadbury's 'twist' Cones, possible first-time spotter "Elaine" reports: I am a cheesecake fiend so when I seen cheesecakes on a stick I didn't hesitate to place them in my basket. Yummy yoghurty/cream cheese white chocolate outer with ice cream that has little bits of cheesecake-style base and swirls of raspberry through. Quite nice actually! 67% Of your daily saturates in one bar though, holy cow!!!

...In other cake-related eccentricity: I've only tried the Apricot and Honey flavour, but there's a convincingly "so gritty, it must be good for you" texture to McVitie's Wholesense Wholegrain Cake (1.49, Sainsbury, also available in Cranberry and Almond); and I'm not sure if I'd pay the recommended 4.99/ box of 12 for these "Filthy" Captivating Caramel Bites (reduced to 2 in Sainsbury, also available in Cheeky Chocolate, Seductive Strawberry, or Kinky Creme Brulee). Plus, there's something about the combination of calling yourself The Filthy Food Company and producing chocolate products that's exactly what Disney are trying to avoid with this year's Hollow Milk Chocolate "Winnie" - ie, that there wouldn't be quite the same audience for a Hollow Milk Chocolate "Pooh".

Comment: Quite. Filthy food brings to mind food with e.g. half a dead cockroach in it. Presumably they were trying to go for something that sounded "naughty but nice" but accidentally chose a focus group consisting entirely of non-english-speakers...?

Comment: I got the "Filthy" Captivating Caramel Bites after also seeing them reduced in Sainos. Though I had to pay £2.50. Imagine a Magnum where the ice cream inside has all turned to liquid, but the chocolate shell survives.

Rather nice, but awful expensive. It felt the sort of thing you'd have at a posh finger buffet to follow your mini M&S Hamburgers.

Comment: The whole poo thing didn't stop Nestlé releasing "Pooh Sticks" ice lollies... and yes they did look like turds on sticks.
