Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Nestle Crunch Eclats de Caramel International sighting: Nestle Crunch Eclats de Caramel
Posted: 21:04 Sun 13-Dec-2009. Price: 2 Euros. Location: Supermarket in Athens, Greece.
Zeddy reports: Mrs Zeddy was on a business trip when she found this in a local shop. It tastes pretty darned good with a real caramel taste yet still with the crunchiness of a... Crunch. Strange that Nestle have not considered bringing it to the UK. Well no actually, as Nestle couldn't give a rat's arse about their UK arm. Have you tried a Euro Crunch in comparison with the tat we get here? Appalling isn't it? Why don't they just cover rice crispsies in cooking chocolate and be done with it. And don't get me started on Toffee Crisps!

I see Kit Kats are now FairTrade. Huh! Why not actually concentrate on the quality of the chocolate? I love the Extra Creamy Extra Crispy ones that bargain shops get from Euroland unlike the ones we have in the UK. That Nestle! A bunch of cheapskate Alpine goat-chasers. I bet you don't post my Nestle rant as you are like "that" with them. And even if you do, it's only because I said you wouldn't. So there. *draws breath* Anyhoo, I thoroughly recommend the Caramel Crunch to the House.

...And who'd want to argue with that? It's not clear whether the 'Enjoy your Easter break!' Kit Kat already spotted by "Magnetic Ham Sandwich" is in addition to the one expected to be competing with Cadbury Caramel Bunnies (or even Barratt's Lovely Mini Eggs) next year. Back with more imminent celebrations, you can hear me trying Penguin Yule Logs and the revived from 2007 McDonald's Festive Pie from around 14:40 in this podcast - though that was recorded before I found these Fabulous Bakin' Boys Choc Orange King Christmas Cupcakes (and the slightly less exciting Mint Choc flavour) at 99p/4 in - where else? - the 99p Store on Camden High Street, London.

Comment: When I said like "that", I had my fingers crossed. I miss this bar. I hope the missus is off to Greece soon.

Comment: Yes I wish mine would go too. Did I say that out loud? Hey ho. I must say I'd love to try one of those Extra Crispy Kit Kats. I've never been a fan of Cherman chocolate, but with Cadbury's inevitably becoming like Hersheys (sadly it'll never be the other way round given that everything distills down to the lowest denominator) I guess I'll need to change my palate.

Comment: doh forgot to mention, it looks like Crunch Eclats de Caramel is also available in France (or, at least one French-speaking country in which their equivalent of Banksy appears to be called "Nasty"...) http://blog.easyfrenchcook.fr/index.php/2009/07/21/255-crunch-se-met-au-graff
