Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: 7Up Diet Cherry Antioxidant International sighting: 7Up Diet Cherry Antioxidant
Posted: 17:33 Sun 15-Nov-2009. Price: About $8 for a 12 pack + deposit. Location: Fred Meyer, Portland, Oregon, USA. Nutritional unusualness: 10% RDA of vitamin E.
"charl" reports: This was pretty exciting and delicious! In theory - Diet Cherry 7Up (which is yummy) but with some very mild vitamin improvement. It actually tasted better than standard Diet Cherry 7Up and it looks from the website that that's been jettisoned now anyway. Hooray for novelty soda - we didn't see much of Diet Coke with Vitamins this time, who knows how long this will last? A long time if people listen to their taste buds!

...And welcome back to "charl", whose trip to Fred Meyer also yielded this Kellogg's Cinnabon Bar (about $4 for 6), prompting the observation that: "Man's greatest achievement is the Cinnabon. Man's greatest failing is that you cannot eat a Cinnabon on the go. Kellogg's have tried to rectify that with these Cinnabon bars. They have the same (frankly awesome) cinnamony gooey stuff that the real 'bon has, but smeared over a flat biscuity thing. They fail on the lame drizzling of sugar icing that only makes you miss the cream cheese frosting more. Now that we finally have Cinnabon in London, I can't help but think these are condemned only to be of use in a Reader's Digest tragic trapped-in-a-car scenario. But still better than many other healthless bar options."

Back with beverages: Foodstuff Finds has the lowdown on both Galaxy Probiotic and the newly-promoted-as-microwaveable Chocolate Fudge Brownie Frijj (also an option with Moo's new Chocolate Creaminess extended life milk); while Lee Maguire has located Red Bull's addition to the growing "energy shot" market, though it's a shame they haven't come up with as sci-fi a name for it as school-friendly "fruit-based cola" Evoid Six.

Comment: Presumably when "Evoid Six" claims to be free of "e-numbers *and* additives" they're making a bold claim that they've removed any E-numbers that aren't additives. Like that nasty ascorbic acid (E300) you often get in fruit juice?

Comment: Omigod. Won't somebody protect the children??! Why can't they take the ascorbic acid out and replace it with something useful, like Vitamin C?
