Click pic to view comments - Unidentified sighting: Unknown Twix product wrapper Unidentified sighting: Unknown Twix product wrapper
Posted: 11:03 Sun 14-Nov-2010. Location: Cardiff.
"Gareth Huish and Owen J Batstone" report: So my friend Owen is walking down the street and sees this packet on the floor. It's a Twix packet but it's unlike any we have seen before. He takes it home and shows me and asks me what product it's from. I have no idea! It looks like there was some sort of Wagon Wheel in it, or some sort of Twix Kit Kats. We have done numerous searches online but as yet we have not managed to identify it. So we are giving it to the experts here at Snackspot. Any ideas?

...Something of a departure from our usual updates today - personally, I think it's probably some sort of mini-Twix promotional pack that's been handed out at a shopping centre, but you've got to admire the Turin-shroud-like analysis applied by these two first-time spotters (the photo is actually a screengrab from the videoconference where Owen is showing Gareth the baffling artefact).

Meanwhile, in other wintery mysteries: Christmas continues to be an unexpectedly popular time to launch new ice creams, with Foodstuff Finds identifying "layers of a substance similar to a solid hazelnut praline" within Walls' Choco Nut Viennetta Selection, and Nestle's Potz mini tubs (around 1.29 per 220ml) turning out to be unashamedly fluffy homages to McDonald's McFlurries, right down to the (hedgehog-friendly?) plastic lid, and being available in Aero, Smarties, Rolo and Toffee Crisp varieties.

Comment: Yeah, it's got to be the packet from a Super Thick Shake. Not as exciting as I'd hoped.

Comment: That milkshake packet clearly states 'Milkshake Mix' on it. Enlarge it and see. There is no such label on my product.

Comment: hi, new here :) isn't that just a miniature from a multipack?
Posted: 15:50 Thu 18-Nov-2010 by "Owen J Batstone" # permalink comment
Comment: We have found no multi-pack wrapping like this.
Posted: 17:21 Thu 18-Nov-2010 by "Gareth Huish" # permalink comment
Comment: The problem is, it's too small to be the actual wrapping of a multipack and too round to have contained normal Twix.

The Twix milkshake is the closest thing to what it might be, however as Owen has said it's not branded correctly.

Comment: The Twix Thick Shakes have been re-launched this year. So that could be the new packaging? I did have a look in the supermarket today - but I couldn't find one to check. I will keep an eye out though. http://www.thegrocer.co.uk/ [URL display truncated]
