Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Burton's Jammie Dodgers Snack Bars/ Maryland Munch Bars Confirmed sighting: Burton's Jammie Dodgers Snack Bars/ Maryland Munch Bars
Posted: 22:31 Sun 05-Apr-2009. Location: Online, or Suffolk.
"Cathy" reports: You can get Jammie Dodger Snack Bars from Sainsbury's, my mother-in-law bought some last week and handed 'em over! In reference to Maryland Munch, if you're not bothered about sell-by dates, there's a site online called Approved Food that will sell you a whole slightly out-of-date or short-dated box for coppers... did an order off them yesterday...

...And thanks to "Cathy" for eliminating an almost year-old "Awaiting Sighting" - though the apparent apathy about this Jammie Dodgers brand extension didn't stop them adding an extra Splat Snacks format in the meantime. In other raspberry-ish centres: "Saw a huge French Fancy cake in Morrisons' in-store bakery in Wolverhampton. It's one of the party cakes that's baked in store. Not Mr Kipling though but still looks great," claimed "michelle" - has demand for the real thing reached such a peak that supermarkets are now synthesising their own?

Elsewhere, after a quiet March, Zeddy is back with these Lotte Koala Strawberry Flavour Biscuits seen for 1.08 in Tesco, Springburn, Glasgow, causing him to go a bit Jeremy Clarkson with the remarks: "The Tesco in Springburn is frequented by the immigrant community in Glasgow and as a result stocks a lot more foreign foodstuff. In saying that I don't know how many Japanese asylum seekers they have. Onto the product itself. These are little crunchy biscuits with a food-dyed print of a koala bear on them. The strawberry cream filling is just that, more sweet than fruity. Imported by 'Double Happiness Wholesale Ltd' in Romford so maybe other shops will have them. Cute koala pictures all over the packaging will win the kids and women over when it comes to buying."

Comment: I wouldn't bother with that Koala bear pap. It took a month for my household to eat them. I did buy some cardamom tea bags at the same time. Now they are the REAL DEAL!

Comment: Zeddy old chum, you know Springburn just doesn't strike me as the sort of place to enjoy cardamom tea bags and esoteric Japanese wafers. Is there a shortage of Buckie and crack?

Comment: No. Tesco had them on BOGOF but I had stocked up at Asda Govan the week before.
