Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury's Wishes star Confirmed sighting: Cadbury's Wishes star
Posted: 20:09 Mon 30-Aug-2010. Price: 69p. Location: The Co-op (eg the Somerfield near Paddington Station on Edgware Rd). Nutritional unusualness: 165 Calories per Star, 10% of profits go to Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Unfortunately, whenever I hear about the Make-A-Wish Foundation I think of news stories like these - anyway, Snackspot doesn't often locate new products ahead of Foodstuff Finds and Jim's Chocolate Mission, but today first-time spotter "Fay Brady" has made that dream come true, reporting: "I found this in the Co-op today on my way for lunch. It is in a gold and purple wrapper. It is a GIANT solid bubbly chocolate star. I recommend."

...That said, Jim and Cinabar do have the low-down on Cadbury's slightly less charitable bid to divide the nation "into two teams - the Spots and the Stripes" (a bit like the Belgian segregation of Hutus and Tutsis in Rwanda?), though it sounds like they could have just as effectively split the population into people who think that Cadbury's white chocolate is either "sweet and creamy" or "low quality sugary rubbish".

Apparently there are some new Segsations and green goo-filled Cadbury Screme Eggs to look forward to at Christmas and Halloween, respectively - but, just for now, Zeddy also found this Twix Fino, detecting that: "The product itself has a slightly different flavour than a Twix due to the missing shortcake, replaced by 'crispy wafer (22%)'. It is essentially bits from Mars Planets cobbled together. Not unpleasant but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy one again. The pack proclaims 94kcal per 'one piece'. We all eat one half of a chocolate bar, don't we?"
