Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Burger King Melt 'n Middles Confirmed sighting: Burger King Melt 'n Middles
Posted: 17:03 Sun 27-Feb-2011. Price: 2.49 (sandwich only). Location: BK opposite Paddington station, and across London. Sub-flavours: Cheesy Mushroom; Chilli Cheese; Blue Cheese.
Snackspot reports: Sorry I've been meaning to post something about these for weeks, as they're one of the most interesting new high-street products of the year so far (well, until more details emerge about this alleged Fanta fizzy juice drink from McDonald's). Like a lowish-cost alternative to a Big Mac, these are much smaller than a BK Whopper, but contain two beef patties, plus - as the name implies - a layer of melted, flavoured cheese between them. Obviously they don't look as photogenic as they do in the picture but the different cheeses (especially the mushroom and KFC-ish blue) add their own pleasantly noticeable flavours compared to the bacon and Monterey Jack we usually get fobbed off with.

...That said, BK's Sticky Toffee Pudding Fusion McFlurry-alike might have been at least a bit interesting if they'd managed to heat the sauce and pudding bits up somehow. Over in home snacking, the TV-advertised Tillmans Toast Me (1/pack of 2 introductory offer in Camden Morrisons) largely fulfil their promise of a heavily-breadcrumbed savoury Pop Tart that make your kitchen smell like a transport cafe while, in other cheesy weirdness, the slightly yoghurty Dill and Mint Raitha are my favourite Anita's Chips so far, mostly because the Mango and Lime Chutney ones taste like a salty Starburst. Tayto are bringing back Golden Wonder Ringos in Che-he-heese and Onion, or Salt and Vinegiggles flavours (around 30p/28g bag) - let's hope they do a better job than Seabrook's new Goodbye salt Hello flavour Jacket Potato With Creamy Butter crisps, which Foodstuff Finds hails as "the strangest concoction of a flavouring that I have ever had the misfortune to try."

Comment: I do hope cheesy mushroom is like a mushroom double Swiss. I have missed them so badly since they were deleted.

Comment: I purchased the new Fanta from coryton McDonald's in Cardiff. The server had to ask the manager about it as it was new with only a small sign on the till.

Comment: Just been to McDonalds again. It's called Fruitizz, an apple and raspberry juice with spring water. Also Oreos double stuff in asda today.

Comment: Hmmmm, that cheesy mushroom above was not that good. A strange cheesy/mushroom sauce between burgers with mayo and lettuce on top. Bring back the MDS, BK!
