Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Mars Galaxy Orange and Shortcake Confirmed sighting: Mars Galaxy Orange and Shortcake
Posted: 18:11 Sun 12-Dec-2010. Price: 1.00/120g (on offer). Location: Sainsbury's, Cardiff. Nutritional unusualness: Contains concentrated apple puree, fructose-glucose syrup.
"Haylee" reports: There was a promotion on Galaxy bars and my sharp-eyed boyfriend spotted this new flavour amongst the many boxes of Galaxy bars. I thought it might be like a chocolate orange but yummier as it's Galaxy chocolate, I had high hopes after how nice the cookie crumble flavour was. However, I was mistaken - the orange is a little too subtle, I could barley taste it on the first piece I had and the flavour got less and less the more I ate of it. Nothing special here, I proceeded to eat the rest whilst I had a cold so it tasted of nothing with crunchy bits. Would not buy again.

...Yeah, my friends were a bit underwhelmed by this one - although, in other chocolatey oddities: Foodstuff Finds has a head-to-head comparison between Paul A Young's Marmite Truffles and Unilever's official Marmite Very Peculiar Milk Chocolate bar (which I've seen costing upwards of 2.79 in Selfridges, BHS and even that noted high-street chocolatier, Robert Dyas). McVitie's will be taking on Burton's Maryland with January's launch of Hobnobs Cookies (in Milk Chocolate Chip or Milk Choc Chip and Hazelnut, 1.25); and "Easter already!" I cheered on finding this Aero Bubbly Lamb in my local Costcutter (65p), hopefully soon to be joined by Smarties Spring Friends - a "hollow milk chocolate chick, bunny and bee character filled with mini Smarties".

Comment: I was totally underwhelmed by the Galaxy orange. It seems to accentuate the waxiness of their chocolate as well.

Comment: Ah yes, the Easter bee.

Comment: they had the Smarties Spring Friends in the Chancery Lane Sainsbury's Local on Christmas Eve - it's not a *combined* "chick, bunny and bee character" (eg with the head of a chick, legs of a rabbit and thorax of a bee), but one of each, and they all have strings on their head so they could also decorate an Xmas tree!
