Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Coca-Cola Relentless Apple and Kiwi Confirmed sighting: Coca-Cola Relentless Apple and Kiwi
Posted: 16:34 Sun 29-Jul-2012. Price: 1/500ml current offer in Tesco. Location: Old Kent Road. Sub-flavours: See below. Nutritional unusualness: 10.7g sugars, 32mg caffeine per 100ml, plus "fruit and vegetable extracts (blackcurrant, carrot), guarana, colour (brilliant blue)".
Snackspot reports: There are many reasons I've kept this site running - the sense of community, for example, or the continued vendetta against Innocent smoothies. But ultimately I feel we're all striving to somehow "make a difference" to the UK snackscape and, this week, in some small way, we may have helped achieve that. Relentless Apple and Kiwi is bright blue, and has a good fruity flavour that could, indeed, be apple and/or kiwi fruit. But most excitingly of all, it's part of the whole range's "bold makeover, with the new packs offering a brighter, eye-catching design for stand-out on shelf". Translation: they've ditched the stupid Latin-sounding names which swept the board as Snackspot's Worst-Named Products of 2011, so Inferno (Infernus?) is now just "Orange", and Devotion "Juicy Berry" etc. Victory has never tasted sweeter, my friends - cheers!

...That said, I'd be interested to hear what you'd have called this new one under the old nomenclature: Relentless Romulus for the Star Trek fans? Anyway, in other sci-fi imbibes: Galaxy Cafe Skinny Mocha Latte is a bit less viscous than some of their previous milk drinks, though please make sure you shake it thoroughly, as the first one I tried was harbouring a black slime at the bottom like something out of Prometheus. I have the latest Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! podcast to thank for the news that Singapore branches of 7-Eleven can dispense mashed potato via Slurpee machines - although over-18s may prefer a glass of Stella Artois Cidre Pear, part of the ongoing craze for pear ciders that will presumably see it advertised by some French dude telling us to pronounce it "Poire".

Comment: Now there you were, making me feel all warm and cuddly about being part of some kind of a Snackspot community... and you have to go and insinuate you're a Trekkie. At your age? Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear.

And as for Stella Artois Cidre, shouldn't that be Wifebeatre?

or the beer money the ads and affiliate links bring in, for a more honest example.
