Click pic to view comments - Semi-international sighting: Milka Raspberry Cream Semi-international sighting: Milka Raspberry Cream
Posted: 10:33 Sun 18-Nov-2012. Location: Polish store.
"Kev's Snack Reviews" reports: I presume it's intended to be a Polish-only edition as there is no English on the back of the wrapper (but there is on the front, strangely). I can't help but wonder if this bar had a different recipe to regular Milka bars, because the sweetness totally overpowered any taste of chocolate. The raspberry sauce was very artificial-tasting; the kind of flavor those cheap kiddies juice drinks used to have. And the "cream" pretty much just tasted of sugar.

...The search for nicer imports continues on "Kev's Snack Reviews blog", though he's not much more complimentary about Côte d'Or Speculoos Lait ("an awful musty smell with a hint of cinnamon") or the almost mythological-sounding Nestle Orion Margot Artemis ("Marzipan with out of date rum flavoring that's been left on a shelf for five years, then wrapped up and sold [...] DO NOT BUY.")

Elsewhere in the Kraft/Cadbury corporation: four "individually wrapped milk chocolate egg shells filled with a mousse" constitute Easter's upcoming Egg 'n' Spoon special; plus both Tesco and Asda are rolling out more in-store fixtures dedicated to imported US products, expected to include "Hershey's chocolate, pretzels, mustard, squeezy cheese, macaroni cheese and cereals".

Comment: I keep asking Asda to bring Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls over from the US.

No luck yet. :(

I am willing to give that Cote d'Or chocolate though.

Comment: If you see those new 'Heinz Beans With Cheddar Cheese' on the shelf and are tempted to try them, DON'T. They're revolting. Amazingly, Heinz have managed to make them taste neither of beans NOR cheese and for 75p a go, the tin's not even full!!

This has been a public service announcement.

Comment: Too bloody late!

You cannot beat Heinz beans smothered in grated cheese.

Comment: "...the tin's not even full!!"

- reminiscent of Woody Allen's opening to Annie Hall:

There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly.

Comment: To ASDA:

Please import a wide range of American pretzels !! Including chocolate-coated peanut-butter-filled ones. And price them fairly.

Thanks!
