Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Laverstoke Park Farm Buffalo Milk Confirmed sighting: Laverstoke Park Farm Buffalo Milk
Posted: 09:55 Sun 18-Jul-2010. Price: 1.99/750ml. Location: Sainsbury's, Finchley Road, London. Nutritional unusualness: 4.9g sugar, 8g fat (of which saturates 4.2g) per 100g.
Snackspot reports: Following news of "a new tea bag especially designed to be used with soya milk" (and previous discussion of Goat's Milk For Dogs and Cats), I couldn't resist grabbing a TetraPak of this when it was reduced to clear at 99p. And don't be put off by the MS Paint-style portrait on the front (is it supposed to be proprietor Jody Scheckter? It looks more like Niki Lauda...) - this really does live up to the packaging's claim of being "very white, beautifully smooth", and "perfect for milkshakes, on breakfast cereal and in coffee". No doubt that's partly due to a fat content approaching that of Evaporated Milk or "Light" Single Cream, but you even get mozzarella-like blobs appearing in it as it starts going off, plus it doesn't taste too strongly of buffalo, either.

...Anyway, in other dairy derivatives: Nestle are generously giving adults "permission to reacquaint with" its new Raisin and Biscuit Milkybar (due end of July, 52p), and it sounds like the possibly-imported Twix Topix may be officially launching here in September as the Twix Fino. Which just leaves Zeddy's ongoing haul of: Lindt Noir + Lait chocolate (4 Francs, Geneva Airport - "Mmm, I really had to try this out when I spotted it in the shop. The two varieties of choc complement each other so well. I had to be so selective when over in Switzerland or I would have bankrupted myself in the purchase of all the chocolate."); Camille Bloch Ragusa Noir (1.95-4.90 Francs, around Interlaken - "This was my other half's favourite bar whilst on holiday and pretty stunning it was, I have to confess. Essentially, dark chocolate coated, dark choc and hazelnut filling that was very rich but not in the least bitter. Those Swiss don't half know how to charge for services and products though. Look at the variations in price we found."); and Movenpick Maple and Walnut chocolate (3.40 Francs, Geneva Airport - "Hmmm, 2 of my least favourite ingredients for chocolate. Still, it was sufficiently different that I had to buy it. Now eating it may be another matter entirely...")

Comment: "Twix Fino has a wafer base rather than a biscuit base". So it's a Drifter then.
