Posted: 21:10 Sat 08-Oct-2011. Price: (NutRageous) 0.62. Location: (ditto) Sainsbury's, Orpington.
Snackspot reports: Yes, there have been occasional UK NutRageous sightings over the past few years, although I'm still not organised enough to have a photo of one. So first off, a quick rundown of some Cybercandy imports that were generously bought for me by colleagues. The Muddy Bears are Gummi Bears coated with not-very-nice milk chocolate - not bad if you get a fruit flavour like orange, though not as good as these Marich Mint Chip Maltballs and other Malteser-alikes. Taste of Nature's Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites however, resemble a saltier, soapier version of After Eights, and cannot be recommended even if you think that sounds like a good idea.

...Anyway, over to "Melanie Attwell", who says she: "Spotted [a] little NutRageous bar on the weekly shop. Reese's is a branch of US choco giant Hershey's. Now, Hershey chocolate is usually nothing to write home about in my opinion. But they do tend to get peanut butter right. So a bar with peanuts, peanut butter, caramel and Hershey chocolate should be a happy compromise. The taste... when you first bite in you get a great crunch because the peanuts are on the outside (but still covered in chocolate). Genius. The caramel was slightly hard and chewy but had a nice treacle flavour. Peanut butter was very sickly but delicious. Overall, I rate this as 7/10 as nut and chocolate bars go, but personally, I'd stick with the Snickers."

Comment: Was devastated on Friday when I went into the small branch of WH Smiths where I work to pick up a bag of Reese's Pieces - only to find they no longer stock them. "Reese's bars and Pieces were just on trial and we don't think we'll get them back" said the chirpy cashier as she ruined my afternoon... :-(

Comment: Did she offer to sell you a Cadbury Dairy Milk/with Crunchie pieces/caramel/Fruit and Nut instead that was on offer at the counter, Foodstuff Finds?

Comment: Sainsbury's stock several Reese's lines - and cheaper than WH Smith.

Comment: Funnily enough she did offer various £1 offers - ended up with a bag of Haribo for £1! And some peanut M&Ms to replace the original intended Reeses purchase... d'oh.

Comment: Get the Oreo Snacksters, they are little Oreo cakes. Also Oreo brownies but they weren't as nice.
