Click pic to view comments - International sighting: M and Ms Orange International sighting: M and Ms Orange
Posted: 20:16 Sun 29-Nov-2009. Price: AU$4. Location: Woolworths, Sydney, Australia. Nutritional unusualness: May be present - peanuts, treenuts, barley.
"charl" reports: If Smarties were to take on M and Ms in WWF Wrestling, Smarties would surely hold the final ball-twisting smackdown: Orange Smarties! M and Ms have come back with their riposte - the slightly predictable Orange M and Ms. However, don't let the following of trends put you off. They are delicious! Covered in only orange or white shells, they are standard-sized milk chocolate M and Ms with the zingy taste of orange. A winner that we should have in this country.

...Apparently, in Australia, they've also got "mixture bags containing crispy, milk and peanut M and Ms in one place", plus these Steve's Buttered Popcorn flavour Smith's Crisps (AU$1.50, Sydney airport, also available in Late Night Kebab, BBQ Coat of Arms, or Caesar Salad) - as "charl" explains: "Smith's appear to be the Australian version of Walkers and they were just announcing their Do Us A Flavour options when we arrived in Oz. The rest of our holiday was spent tracking down buttered popcorn flavoured crisps. They actually taste like buttered popcorn! Quite buttery, delicious and weird. I know you could just eat popcorn, but hey - it's flat food, and we all want to live in Microserfs."

And in other overseas observations, anthropomorphised crisp mascot "Mr Tayto" left it a bit late to tell me on Friday afternoon that: "I've got a busy weekend lined up and I'm sure that your lovely readers will be delighted to hear that I'm coming out to meet them and sign my autobiography, The Man Inside The Jacket, in Limerick and Cork. You can find me and my pal Father Jack signing books at Eason Bookstore on O'Connell Street, Limerick tomorrow (Saturday 27th November) at 3.30pm. I'll then be making my way across to Cork like a hot potato to meet some more of you lovely folks and sign books at Eason on Patrick Street, Cork at 2.30pm on Sunday 28th November. Thanks for your help, you're a potato's best pal!"
