Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Screme Egg/ Dead Heads Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Screme Egg/ Dead Heads
Posted: 12:08 Sun 24-Oct-2010. Price: 50p/1. Location: Asda, Linwood, Renfrewshire.
I wouldn't normally run two confectionery items in consecutive weeks, but hey it's Halloween soon and "Lynne Galloway" has gone to the trouble of establishing that the Screme Eggs are "apparently exclusive to Asda which is a bit rubbish, but anyway they are exactly the same as their Easter cousins apart from the yellow goo being replaced with pale green goo." And, regarding the Dead Heads, "Lynne" largely agrees with Jim's Chocolate Mission that they're "more Easter eggs rehashed as Halloween variants by Cadbury. These are basically mini caramel eggs but the caramel is red. They come in a little bag with about 12 of them in it."

...In slightly less terrifying brand extensions: "6 chunks of Cadbury's chocolate with spaces containing blandness. What was the point?" demanded "Gourmet" of Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss (about 64p, Co-Op Church Road, Northolt); "An altogether pleasant and slightly (worryingly) feminine experience" was Foodstuff Finds' verdict on Kit Kat Senses Caramel Cream; and Asda were asking people to pay more than a pound for this exactly-as-you'd-expect Thorntons Double Toffee and Vanilla Mousse, part of Thorntons' massive new range of cakes and puddings that also includes a selection of Triple Chocolate Chunk, Ginger and Dark Chocolate, Praline and Milk Chocolate, or Sicilian Lemon Meringue cookies.

Comment: Did Gourmet nail the definition of Bliss! Perhaps with a hint of sickly sweet nothingness too. Does anyone recall the days when a Creme egg used to actually taste of vanilla instead of sugary sweetness? No, it isn't just my taste buds.

Comment: The Nestlé Double Cream eggs were always my favourite. And the Smarties Eggheads when they were good value and before they started tasting just of sugar.
