Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Lucozade Blackcurrant/ HP Sauce with Guinness Confirmed sighting: Lucozade Blackcurrant/ HP Sauce with Guinness
Posted: 10:37 Sun 13-Mar-2011. Price: 99p/ 1.99. Location: Londis, Eastcote/ Morrisons, Skipton North Yorks.
A pioneering beverage-based cocktail this week, kicking off with "conor martin", who reports: "Blackcurrant Lucozade! This is new and tastes great. It tastes a bit like Vimto but is very nice, worth a buy though. Also I saw Lucozade Sport Cherry, and the latest addition to the Lucozade Lite range - orange." Well, I'm glad someone's keeping track of all these "conor" - and, as I'm not a fan of either HP Sauce or Guinness, the same applies to Heinz's HP Sauce with Guinness St Patrick's Day tie-in, cryptically described by photographer "pat smith" as "potentially a marriage made in heaven", and reviewed in a bit more detail over at Foodstuff Finds.

...Elsewhere, anyone lamenting the perhaps-inevitable extinction of Panda Pops can always take a swig of: Tropicana Still Lemonade (in Pink or Traditional varieties); Fresh, Delicate or Strong variants of PG Tips; Douwe Egberts' Aromettes compressed coffee tablets for people who find ground coffee "too difficult to make", or John Crabbie's (non-alcoholic) Ginger Beer Diet, or Twist of Orange - the latter not to be confused with the 4% alcohol-by-volume Brothers Ginger Cider or Stone's Ginger Joe. Stella Artois have come up with Cidre, "a premium crafted Belgian cider", though I can't currently work out if limited edition WKD Purple is the one that was supposed to somehow simplify the making of Cheeky Vimtos, which takes us right back to where this sighting started. Cheers!

Comment: ...and don't forget the Cloudy Lemonade flavoured sweets in the new royal wedding bags of Fox's Glacier Sweets. Not a bad flavour actually, certainly more distinctive than the Raspberry and Blueberry flavours that make up the red, white & blue theme in the bag.

Comment: Hersheys are in the UK at last! Kisses & Nuggets only at the moment in Asda. Still miss the large Hershey kisses easter eggs Asda used to sell.

Now get those original hershey bars and graham crackers in stock so i can make smores whenever I want.

Comment: My local shop got WKD Purple in yesterday. It tastes exactly like Cheeky Vimto, including tasting like WKD Blue towards the end. I picked up Sticky Toffee and Double Chocolate "Jammie" Dodgers yesterday. I've tried the Chocolate ones and they're a little too dry for my liking. I'll try the toffee ones tomorrow.
