Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Choc Full Of Pretzels Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Choc Full Of Pretzels
Posted: 21:11 Tue 28-Aug-2012. Price: 1.50 for what looks like their usual 100g-ish bag. Location: Co-op, Shepherds Bush. Nutritional unusualness: "Contains vegetable fats in addition to cocoa butter".
Only last week we heard claims of Penn State chocolate pretzels, but "Alex" harks back even further, reporting: Anyone who remembers Pretzel Flipz' short-lived UK appearance in the late '90s will no doubt be pleased to see Cadbury's latest offering - it's basically the same thing, mini pretzels covered in chocolate. Delicious.

...I'm expecting the usual debate about whether it's actual Dairy Milk on these (though, to be honest, the Popcorn sister product was so good I didn't even bother checking). Anyway, in other belated updates: you may have heard that Nestle are apparently replacing KitKat Caramel with a GPS-enabled Cookies and Cream flavour, targeted at "young families looking for exciting new news from their favourite biscuit brands".

Plus - more from Zeddy in an upcoming sighting, but for now he weighs in on Rocky's Limited Edition Fizzy Cola biscuits, inferring that they aim to: "Take a standard Rocky, add a layer of 'cream' to the top of the biscuit and cover in milk chocolate. The cream however is nice and cola flavoured with some fizzy tartiness to add some authenticity to proceedings."

"If your first reaction to reading this is 'Eew!', then consider if you have ever eaten a chocolate bar whilst drinking a coke. If you thought that OK then this should hold some appeal. It actually works and is a nice alternative to the usual toffee and praline varieties so favoured by chocolate manufacturers."

Comment: Been waiting years for these! Thanks Cadbury!

Comment: Penn State also do choc covered pretzels which are good but nothing on their sour cream flavoured variety.

Comment: I like Penn State's recent rebranding, but not the associated price hike to £1.49 (put 'em back to £1!), and yeah, the sour cream and chive pretzels have been a favourite of mine for years, although I've hardly bought them since that inflation-busting price hike.

What I really want is a local branch of Auntie Anne's... those soft, freshly-baked large pretzels look so good..

Comment: I think I tried Auntie Anne's pretzels (with cinnamon?) when I lived near Brent Cross, definitely a different experience to these - anyway, back to the KitKat competition, what sort of GPS device are Nestle possibly going to conceal that'd be the same shape and weight as a chocolate bar..?

Comment: Uranium 231? I'd give them their £10k back and tell them to make me the cinnamon ones that Canada used to get. They were awesome.

Comment: Oh, I was too slow! I spotted these in my local Co-op last week and was going to report in. I've not seen them elsewhere. They're delicious and addictive, so no complaints from me :) Did Pretzel Flipz come in 2 varieties? I seem to remember a yoghurt / white choc kind. And on the Kitkat front, some sort of micro-GPS tracker??

Comment: Yes, well enough of that old bollocks. Why have Seabrooks' lovely crisps disappeared from my local Asda?

Comment: The packet is tiny and not worth more than £1. Food portions are so undersized and stingy in this country.
