Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Galaxy Slices Cookie Crumble Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Galaxy Slices Cookie Crumble
Posted: 09:01 Sun 08-Apr-2012. Price: Some introductory offers of 1 for pack of 6 individually wrapped slices. Location: Bourne, Lincolnshire. Nutritional unusualness: 150 calories, 12g sugar, 7.8g fat per slice.
"Allan" says he saw a resurrected from several years ago Limited Edition Yorkie Honeycomb for 70p in Tesco, Hayes - but today's main freezer-cake-resembling sighting comes from what may be the international web-activism collective "anon", who show their softer side with the report: A very nice soft chocolate biscuit base with chunks of Galaxy milk chocolate and a milk chocolate layer. Extremely addictive!

...To be honest, I haven't been particularly inspired by this year's Easter ranges, though there have been some interesting-looking Cocoa Deli eggs in pound shops, and I think I saw a giant Tango Egg and Mug in Morrisons. So I'll leave it to the ever-reliable gobble monkey to wish you a Happy Egg Day 2012, hopefully not excessively haunted by the prospect of Marks and Spencer's "Percy Pig flavour" Hollow white chocolate pig with dried raspberry and strawberry concentrates and decorated with sprinkles (2%), complete with (gobble monkey description) "edible thong".

Comment: That said, where are all the reduced eggs this year? I've been religiously monitoring my local supermarkets and there are a few creme eggs etc but not much else...

Comment: Indeed a NATIONAL disgrace. I hunted around last Monday without any success.

See if I ever buy any of their reduced chocolate eggs again. (I would if I could find them...)

Comment: My god, Yorkie Honeycomb is back? Where are the bloody fanfares? Sing it from the rafters!

Comment: We might if Yorkie didn't resemble cooking chocolate as does most UK Nestle products nowadays.

Comment: This might be a defining mmonet when the people say enough. Thing is until it happens they won't do anything to stop it. 250thousand people were in London to watch the fireworks, would that many come to protest about food? we shall see.Already food inflation is in double digits, adding a further 20% on food would almost make certain items beyond the reach of many families forcing them to eat cheaper less nutritious foods, this coupled with their Vitamin Bill is designed to kill off the weak and infirm.
