Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Wall's Twister Choc/ Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles Confirmed sighting: Wall's Twister Choc/ Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles
Posted: 09:40 Sun 27-Sep-2009. Price: 1?. Location: Newsagent in New Cross, London. Nutritional unusualness: Contains 3% of an adult's GDA of calories.
"alleycat" reports: I was very surprised to find this little ice cream gem in my local newsagent's near New Cross. They never normally have anything strange! This is designed to look like a Twister ice cream but the fruity flavours have all been replaced by 'chocolate complimenting' flavours! You have chocolate and vanilla swirls running along the outside and a lovely caramel ice cream centre. It's really nice actually, and the caramel is very sweet. The whole thing doesn't feel like a "genuine" Twister product though, as this is very soft ice cream (kind of like the stuff they use to make Funny Feet). Twisters normally take long to eat due to the majority of it being "fruit ice" rather than soft ice cream so you can finish the chocolate version in a few bites. Also, I'm not sure of the country of origin as there is English on the front but none at all on the back! Overall it is very nice and I will be going back to buy them all before you lot get the chance! :P

...Thanks "alleycat" - while, in other toffee-style contents, Zeddy took advantage of the 2-for-2.50 offer on Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel Nibbles (495kcal per 100g, 15.6 g of sat fat per 100g) in Sainsbury's, East Kilbride, inquiring: Isn't it strange how there's something indefinably moreish about Buttons that isn't present in a bar of CDM? Or is it just me? They seem to be greater than the sum of their parts. Well, Cadbury obviously thought they could milk this point (geddit? milk?) and thus they have introduced Nibbles. They are a tad larger than Buttons but not a great deal fatter. The caramel present is therefore not overpowering the product (25% according to ingredients). They taste like, wait for it... mini Caramels! Never, I hear you say. Yes, they do! This is where it goes a little flat for me as I am a Galaxy Caramel fan. Cadbury's variety is just too sour for me. Still, a nice little product that I am sure will do very well, especially with the more hormonally challenged creatures of this earth who will no doubt go through a packet or 3 whilst re-running 'Selma and Louise' or its ilk. Laughably (I am, can't you hear me?), Cadbury proclaim they are 'reclosable' at the top of the packet. I can hear Marjorie Dawes with her line of excuses why they don't...

Comment: I remember the original 'Tangle Twister' was very similar with Strawberry, vanilla twists and chocolate all ice cream back in the 80's...Always thought it was a crying shame they replaced it with the 'fruit ice' version

Comment: Bah, it's no use. I f***ed up trying to be smart, Nick. At least I have the smug self satisfaction of knowing it is down to the fact that I have never seen the film in question and much prefer the cerebral highlights of the Simpsons. That's obviously where Selma came from.....

Comment: Ah, not a problem friend. I'm only glad I dodged a Glathgow kith.

Comment: We're hoping you might be able to help. Having made our way through a box of Mini Twisters, we noticed that the box has a Wall's logo with "3 heartbeats" printed on it. Does this mean anything? We wondered whether it was part of a promotion, past or future, but there's nothing on the Wall's website. I don't want to throw them away if it means I'm missing out on free Twisters!!

Comment: OMG Cadbury Nibbles are DELISH!!! Sainsburys in Reading selling them at 2 for £2.50 couldn't help but scoff a whole bag in one sitting - my preference is to slightly chill them first but either way yummy!!!

Comment: Yes Amanda, I said it was Sainsburys who were shifting them for that price.

Comment: I had a pink Cadburys Flake the other day for 47p. Well the wrapper was pink anyway. They are an Asda exclusive right now, in aid of the Tickled Pink breast cancer charity.

Comment: I managed to resist the Cabury Nibbles until yesterday, and I have to say to people is DON'T RESIST! I will warn you, like someone implied above, they're VERY moreish, I'd eaten half a bag before I realised it. I still prefer savoury snacks, but the balance of chocolate and caramel is almost perfect in these.

Comment: I was sadly very excited about trying the nibbles - being a big fan of choc buttons and all things caramel. BUT they didn't do it for me - made me feel very sick, and took over a week to eat the bag (obviously I had to stick with it!!)
