Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Twix Caramel Slices, Twix Minis Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Twix Caramel Slices, Twix Minis
Posted: 12:16 Sun 15-May-2011. Price: 1 each. Location: Sainsbury's, Heaton.
Jim's Chocolate Mission slammed the Caramel Slices as a "repackaged, [...] even poorer" version of McVitie's Caramel Shortcake Slices, but "Greg Lowe" either didn't know or didn't care about their predecessors, reporting: Twix Minis are the small Twix that you get in Celebrations but in a pack of their own. However the gem here is Twix Caramel Slices - I would liken them to a fatter, wider Twix with 5x the caramel, they taste amazing.

...In other bite-sized brand extensions: Jim's Chocolate Mission has been unusually upbeat about Cadbury's Dairy Milk Bliss Truffle Bars (ie Dreamy Chocolate, Irresistible Hazelnut, or Scrumptious Toffee, on introductory offer for 1 in Sainsbury's recently), while Foodstuff Finds has also been on the case with Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocos and Galaxy Chocolate Caramel Bites, as well as the all-new Jaxx Mouthy Chocolate Crunches (available in Milk Chocolate, Double Chocolate, or Orange). Plus, if this hot weather continues, I'll definitely be tempted by Almondy's frozen Toblerone cake, or Starbucks' current half-price offer on all Frappuccinos from 3pm to 5pm apparently at most UK branches until the 22 May.

Comment: Just had the Twix coconut from the USA. It's ok but I wouldn't want it to be a permanent edition. Just a coconut taste rather than actual coconut strands.

Comment: For £1 you can't get a better caramel shortcake - except you get 6

Comment: My experience of those Twix Caramel Slices was exactly the same as Jim's. A poor quality, rebranded version of McVitie's own.

Comment: i thought the Twix Caramel Slices were horrible. A shame as I love Twixs and Caramel Shortbread. But these were really soggy and bland I thought!
