Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: X-Presso Monster Coffee Energy Confirmed sighting: X-Presso Monster Coffee Energy
Posted: 16:41 Sun 01-Apr-2012. Price: 1.39. Location: Best Buy, Winchburgh. Sub-flavours: Hammer; Midnite.
Sorry, I was going to write a hilarious April Fools post in the style of Jim's Chocolate Mission or something, but fortunately received this recent sighting of something that's been around a while - anyway, as "Phill" reports: Found these in my local shop. They're basically an energy drink latte. The tin says 'Do not shake' and I will say DON'T shake it. I think it's got a widget in it to mix it and foam it up. I told my girlfriend to shake it, as I'm used to shaking the Starbucks ones. Upon opening it, it sprayed everywhere. I then noticed the warning about not shaking it... Ooops.

...In other effervescent developments: "Phill" avoided similiar problems with these Limited Edition Fizzy Cola Rocky biscuits, which he saw for 79p in Sainsbury, Cameron Toll, Edinburgh, "and couldn't resist. They smell and taste just like a cheap cola. Worth a try if you see them." GlaxoSmithKline have at last started to address their ludicrous sugar content with Lucozade Revive (in 11g-carbohyrdrate-per-bottle Lemongrass with Ginger, Orange with Acai, or Cranberry with Acai), plus a Caribbean Crush version of "the hard stuff"; or, for something even less sparkling, there's Flat White Emmi Caffe Latte, "mineral water and juice blend" Volvic Juiced, or tea/still lemonade non-carbonate Monster Rehab, which I thought I'd seen two flavours of in Wetherspoons but the other one might have been Monster Absolutely Zero.

Comment: The cola Rockys are gopping. Now I know why there have been so few cola flavoured chocolate bars over the years. What's more, the layer of cola flavoured cream is extra thick on these bars compared to regular Rockys, making them look like deformed chocolate bananas.

Comment: ET biscuits in the 80's were cola flavoured if I remember... they were truly awful too!
