Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Toffee Popcorn Confirmed sighting: Cadbury Dairy Milk Toffee Popcorn
Posted: 16:38 Sun 23-Sep-2012. Price: 1.50. Location: Tesco, Hayes. Nutritional unusualness: "Contains popcorn".
Foodstuff Finds has the lowdown on the same manufacturer's Golden Biscuit Crunch, but "Allan" fails to elaborate on whether this variant's as good as their bag of choc-coated popcorn, alleging that it's merely: "More American-inspired produce from the company formerly known as Cadbury."

...Anyway, in other chunky chocs: I'm unsure if Nestle Lion Cereal has been continuously available for the last 9 years, but if not, it's back in Sainsbury's; while the UK-or-import status of these White or Peanut Lion Bars (60p, News Plus, Dundas Street, Edinburgh) remains tantalisingly unresolved, as "Phill" relates: "Found these in a shop near one of our offices on Wednesday, but had no money to get them. I was back at the other office today, so made sure I picked them up."

Comment: Those Lion bars are definitely imports.

Comment: I found the same "flavour" Lion bars in a slightly smaller format in the Polish section of my usual Tescos. The ones I tried and pictured were longer, about the same length as a normal UK one.

Comment: Cheers Phill, the mystery deepens - is the packaging on the Dundas St ones mostly in English (or have a UK contact address)..?

Comment: I now see that there is the inevitable Dairy Milk with Oreos available. I do think Kraft are pushing it a bit too much - I wonder if they looked at a spreadsheet and saw that special editions always cause a spike in sales so now we have constant special editions. I love a special edition but I'm already tired of them. Or perhaps they plan to leave us with a raft of different versions, in the style of Milka and Ritter Sport.

Comment: Dairy Milk with no vegetable fat?

I'd go for that!
