Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Crunchie Rocks Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Crunchie Rocks
Posted: 19:44 Sat 15-May-2010. Price: 1.95/145g. Location: Somerfield, Kentish Town. Nutritional unusualness: Clusters of milk chocolate with honeycombed pieces (16%) and cornflakes (16%).
Snackspot reports: "Share the Friday feeling," suggests the packet, and these are ideal for that purpose - if your working week typically concludes with you handing out unappetising-looking chunks of confectionery. We went over the non-Dairy Milk chocolate issue last time Cadbury produced something like this, but these don't even seem like particularly high-grade cornflakes - and, inexplicably, they've dodged making them part of the Clusters family and gone for something that sounds more like an ultra-addictive freebase "crack" version of Crunchie.

...There's more of me talking about them at 11:10 and 25:30 in this free podcast (along with Lee Maguire's possibly-imported Twix Topix and these Lindt Excellence Caramelised Hazelnuts and Roasted Almond bars, currently 1 in Sainsbury's - it's the Hazelnut one that tastes more like Toblerone, though only when it's cold for some reason). Anyway, in other refrigerated creativity: there's now a Cadbury Chocolate Cheesecake with Buttons (full price 3.49 in Tesco) in a range of other chilled desserts to confuse with last year's Flake-based frozen one; while Jim's Chocolate Mission continues to rage against the disappointments of Cadbury Dream/ Bournville Fingers plus a dark chocolate version of Burton's Cadbury-branded Jaffa Cakes (I think 45p/pack is almost certainly a half-price introductory offer, though it's not clear whether paying more would have made him even angrier?)

Comment: Haven't seen the Crunchie Rocks but the Lindt bars are nice.

Comment: Lee Maguire? Wasn't he in Grange Hill?

Comment: No, but you have reminded me of this excellent suggestion to avoid that sort of confusion in future...


"I think all ex-Grange Hill actors should have to wear their Grange Hill school uniforms forever after. It would make people respect them, like Chelsea Pensioners. They should have to wear them even if they are starring in a different show. Think how much better Krod Mangoon would have been if Sean Maguire had been wearing a Grange Hill uniform, many, many sizes too small for him. It would have been about 3% better.

I would make ex-Grange Hill actors wear their Grange Hill uniforms in the bath or shower, but they would be allowed to change into their Grange Hill PE kits when they went to bed."
