Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Ferrero Rondnoir Confirmed sighting: Ferrero Rondnoir
Posted: 22:50 Thu 11-Sep-2008. Price: 99p for 4 (Trial pack). Location: Woolworths, Glasgow.
Another two-sightings-for-the-price-of-one from Zeddy, who spotted the slightly sinister-looking Ferrero Rondnoir "in a larger box of mixed Ferrero products at the same time as I noticed this little box of 4. Quite similar to Rocher but dark chocolate with little solid pieces of chocolate inside them as well as the hazelnut paste. Very moreish. I just wish they would relaunch mint Ferreros again."

And for those of you missing Zeddy's usual double-entendres, he also found these Fruit-tella Strawberry Cocktail for 49p in Asda, Hamilton, Scotland, leading him to presume: "I guess these are Van Melle's response to Starburst Twisted. 3 mixed flavours, strawberry with either melon, blackcurrant or lemon. They are pretty good and there is no doubting the melon flavour. I have always thought Fruitella chews were better than Opal Fruits and these do nothing to dispel my opinion. Incidentally, it was the ticket on the counter at the checkout that initially caught my attention - 'Straw Cock'. Now is that a misleading description or what?"

...In other after-dinner extravagances: Ferrero have selected the Budgens in Belsize Park for UK trials of their "palate-cleansing" freeze-them-yourself Gran Desserts - I found the flavours surprisingly strong for the portion size, though assume they're not actually made from "Grans". I've also been slogging through assorted Movenpick ice-creams and Fru fruit trifles when they've been on special offer, though to be honest they're not much more exciting than Nestle Ice Cream Pops (currently 1.24 for 56 pops in Tesco), or the imminent prospect of Calippo Fizz and Smarties Party Ice Cream.

Comment: Haha! A man after my own heart. I haven't ever paid full price on any Fru or Gu desserts. Bloody swizz at full price they are.

Comment: Surely more exciting than the Smarties Party Ice Cream is the return of the Lyons Maid brand, complete with dancing children? It's just a pity it's only on economy products after Nestle replaced it with their tedious logo on the traditional lines.

Comment: I'd like to actually taste it, write about it and give some out at an awards ceremony coming up for March 2009 during International Women's Month, but have no idea how to contact the manufacturers! Help!! Babs
