Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Krave Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Krave
Posted: 10:35 Sun 21-Mar-2010. Price: 1.24 (introductory offer, normally 2.49). Location: Ocado. Nutritional unusualness: 26g carbohydrate (of which 15g sugar), 0.5g salt per "30g serving with 125g of semi-skimmed milk".
"Martin Rake" reports: I wouldn't normally get excited about cereal, as I have to confess I'm a creature of habit, Coco Pops or Crunchy Nut. But when I saw these I thought they looked interesting, oh how right I was. Little parcels of wheat with a chocolate filling very much like nutella, they stay crunchy in the milk, and are so tasty! A grown-up Coco Pops at last!

..."Martin Rake" returns with this more indulgent-looking replacement for the likes of Kellogg's Nature's Pleasure - while, in other morningtime meal-occasions: Foodstuff Finds didn't hang around for Honey Monster Banana Puffs to start appearing in pound shops like they have recently, and "Mr Simon" photographed US family restaurant Denny's first "Breakfast Appetizer", Blueberry and White Chocolate Chip Pancake Puppies.

Or, for more ordinary desserts, I was moderately impressed by Dole's Fruit and Rice (2.19/4, Waitrose, offering Pineapple in Coconut flavoured rice pudding, Mandarins in Orange flavoured rice pudding, or Mango in Mango flavoured rice pudding), plus "Taras Young" provided a bit more on Dr Oetker's Paula Chocolate Pudding, conceding: "Originally, I bought this because of the weird name, and because the dessert itself looks cow-like (chocolate with white vanilla splodges). It has a surprisingly nice smooth, chocolately taste - I went back for a second packet the next week, all irony forgotten. I noted there were only two packets left, so I can't be the only one. The packaging features a fun cow - Paula - and there is one of four 'collectable' pictures inside the cardboard sleeve. Mine says: 'Paula loves singing! She is the leader of a rap band.' Bizarre but delicious."

Comment: What gets my goat is that Mornflake [http://www.mornflake.com/products/childrens/chocolatey_squares.html] have made a far superior version of this for years and few folk talk about them. Bigger and more chocolatey, it's official*.

* I'm the official who says so.

Comment: I was also suckered by the Krave half price offer, but found them a bit meh (And AWFUL name: K-rave??). Maybe I was thinking of the Mornflake brand 'hazelnut squares' cereal, or perhaps Quakers Oat Krunchies- which were pulled for being "saltier than the sea", le sigh http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article97784.ece

Comment: Morrisons have the Mornflake variety at half price-97p at the moment. Taste and compare.

Comment: I will give those Mornflake ones a try. I've always seen them languishing in cheap shops and never thought to try any.

I tried the Krave as it was on offer, and thought it was a load of rubbish. I can't believe someone would enjoy eating it for breakfast. Nasty and artificial.

Comment: Another vote here for Mornflake Chocolate Squares - far superior!
