Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Nestle Lion Crisp/ Lion Biaty Semi-international sighting: Nestle Lion Crisp/ Lion Biaty
Posted: 21:47 Thu 18-Dec-2008. Price: 25p (Lion Crisp), 43p (Lion Biaty). Location: Pound shop/ Polish shops, Newcastle.
"Phillerena" reports: So, the Lion Crisp is made by Nestle France and is basically a regular Lion bar cut in half, without any toffee. It's a lot lighter than a regular Lion, but I found it rather bland and the chocolate wasn't very tasty at all. Overall, shame on you Nestle France - I expected better. Onto the Lion Biaty - I found this by accident in a Polish store. It's a white chocolate Lion and I'm SURE it contains coconut flavouring, but it's hard to tell since the ingredients are in Polish. It's extremely tasty, the toffee actually has a REAL toffee taste and is quite soft on eating. Overall the bar is delicious. Only difference is that it's a lot smaller than English Lion bars. I also had a German white Lion bar to report on but lost the wrapper.

...And welcome back to "Phillerena" - while, in other exotic chocolate, "Becky" spotted "This Cadbury Wunderbar at a metro station while on holiday in Berlin, but didn't buy it at first. Then caused much mirth at various other newstands and confectioners asking 'Hast du ein Wunderbar?' until finally spotted it again, possibly at the same metro station, and got my grubby mits on one. It tasted like a peanut Boost. Yum." For my own part: I think you could get a decent (but still nut-free) Xmas bar by combining Green And Black's Dark And Gingerbread with their Milk And Spiced Fruit varieties (previously 2 for £5 in Tesco); you can barely taste the chocolate (or the beans) in New Covent Garden Food Co's Choc Full Of Beans Chilli Soup (2 for £3 in Sainsbury's); and, perhaps drawing on Nestle's experience with Fromage Frais Poohsticks earlier this year, Disney have again kept the word 'Pooh' off the packaging for their Milk Chocolate Covered 'Yule' Logs with a Crunchy Choccie Centre (BOGOF £1.95 in Tesco).

Comment: The Kaptain has not posted to the snacking spot in many long times, but a little of the kandy magic in his brain required another visit. He is tempted to produce a new kandy kontraption for the yuletimes but has no ideas...

The kredit krunching seems to have dulled the Christmas kandy funsomes.

Comment: Those Green and Blacks Xmas bars are now in Poundland. Both very tasty.

Comment: It is not biaty with a t, but with an L with stroke. Apparently it means “white”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L_with_stroke
