Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Clusters Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Clusters
Posted: 19:34 Sun 26-Apr-2009. Price: 59p for a small bag, 1.49 (2 for 2.50) for large. Location: Asda, Northampton; Northampton Uni Campus Shop; B and M, East Kilbride. Sub-flavours: Cadbury Clusters, Cadbury Peanuts, Cadbury Raisins. Nutritional unusualness: 120kcal per 25g.
"Clusters are basically mini cornflake cakes with raisins thrown in and the peanuts are, well... chocolate-covered peanuts!" hurrahs "Heather", but the pic comes from Zeddy, who elaborates: "Noted the comments last month concerning these and found them today. 150g pouches of the three varieties. Essentially they are mini cornflake crispy cakes with raisins in them. They are coated in Cadbury chocolate rather than the ubiquitous Scotbloc that your mother used to use. Very moreish, I managed a pack to myself (more or less) in 20 minutes."

...Or, as the people I tried these on pointed out, they're a bit like broken-up pieces of some ill-fated Cadbury attempt at trying to make a Lion bar. Plus, no-one could think of many positive everyday meanings for the word "Clusters", which nonetheless hasn't discouraged Walkers from launching two kinds of sweet nut Red Sky Clusters (in Peanut and Almond, or Pecan and Peanut, 2.49).

...And in other almondy allusions, Zeddy adds that he also found these - presumably imported - Galaxy Jewels for 1.99 in the same B and M, East Kilbride, discovering: "A box (400g) of Galaxy chocolates in the vein of Cadbury Heroes or Mars Celebrations. 12 different varieties - Ripple, Praline, Dark centre (milk outer), Almond butter crunch, Crispy, Milk (Galaxy itself), Wholenut and caramel, Wholenut, White centre (milk outer), Biscuit crunch, and Caramel. Having had 2 boxes I found only 1 Ripple in each box. They are all good and the Almond butter crunch was a particularly nice find. They are made in the UAE but still have HVF in them. A good present and talking point as they are a bit different from Mars usual fare."

Comment: note the use of the phrase 'cadbury milk chocolate' and the absence of the words 'dairy milk'. cadbury's mini eggs were nearly inedible this year being as they were cadbury cheap choc. the chocolate raisins are as generic as those of one hundred supermarkets, except for the price tag.

the galaxy jewels are pretty good, but i good food poisoning from dubai, so they are on the bad memories list.

Comment: Having now tried the raisin variety, I have to agree that I cannot say in all truthfulness that I thought the chocolate to be Cadbury's. I stick by my original comment on the moreishness of the cornflake ones. A Lion bar has crisped RICE and CARAMEL in it for goodness sake. Some peoples' attempts to put a product down are based on ignorance of the actual ingredients they are comparing. What next? A Mars Bar is nothing like as good as a Turkish Delight it tries so hard to emulate?! Thoe Jewels are worth the money IMO.
