Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Krispy Kreme Easter Egg doughnuts Confirmed sighting: Krispy Kreme Easter Egg doughnuts
Posted: 17:36 Mon 25-Apr-2011. Price: £1.55. Location: WH Smiths (and most Tescos). Sub-flavours: Chocolate or vanilla.
Snackspot reports: These are a (temporary?) replacement for Krispy Kreme's recent Glamour Glaze tie-ins, which looked like nail varnish but apparently tasted of strawberry and blackcurrant - the Easter ones are vaguely ovoid in shape, and are topped with either chocolate or vanilla icing plus a sprinkling of hundreds and thousands. In other words, KK haven't strayed too far from their presumably successful formula, though both of these tasted ever so slightly salty, which I thought was probably the custard "yolk" inside but in retrospect might also have been the buttery icing.

...In other, immediately-discounted alternatives to those ever-controversial Spring Spheres: Foodstuff Finds seems to have detected "orange and mango flavours" in special edition Haribo Eggstras, while Marks and Spencer's overly-literal product descriptions have continued with two different variants of the Baby Basil Hollow Milk Chocolate Duck, whose packaging will hopefully avoid the sinister greenhouse effect inflicted on just one of these Thornton's Bunny Pals observed by "Mr Simon" around this time last year.

Comment: latest: Easter Egg Krispy Kremes were still on sale yesterday, joined by the "Gold Ring"...

Based on our signature Original Glazed doughnut, this unique regal treat is finished with a luxurious golden caramel glaze – perfect for a princess. Available in any Krispy Kreme UK store or cabinet until 1st May."

Comment: The gold rings were ok, nothing special.

Did notice RC Cola (Royal Crown) - an American cola in Asda today. Pity they didn't sell their root beer.

Comment: Chances are that RC Cola is made under licence by Cott Beverages in Kegworth. They used to make Virgin Cola too but I think that moved to Silver Spring (who also make supermarket/symbol group drinks) in even-less-exotic Folkestone.

Comment: You are correct, just looked at the can and It's by Cott. I thought it would taste cheap and nasty buy to my surprise tastes just like regular coca-cola. Also saw new Cadburys items. Cadburys Choco's - like rolos but without the caramel. And those caburys shortcake biscuit in a packet shaped like balls. And the cadburys dream range or whatever it is in a bar format in different flavours. Think there were some others but going off cadbury lately so not that interested.

Comment: Oh and I tried James Edwards Sarsaparilla (I love Root Beer and it's challenging finding different brands in the UK) and I hated it. Nothing like regular root/birch beer. Raspberry with a hint of aniseed is a basic description of the taste.
