    It is nice and all, bordering on 'wow' but its not got an actual chocolate taste, more that fake artificial washed out chocolate taste.
    I'd agree. It's very nice, don't get me wrong. But when you see chocolate brownie flavoured popcorn you immediately thing "WOW!" but the actual thing doesn't quite live up to the wow-factor. Now, if it had chocolate brownie pieces in it as well...................

    Pesto Crisps (REALLY want to try!!)





    Walkers Mystery Flavours... not sure about these





    Creme Egg Splats!

    iamvick, Creme Egg splats are just like the mini Creme Eggs you get; like a higher chocolate-to-creme ratio. I prefer it that way.

    The mystery flavours of Walkers; I've had a couple of them, and I'm sure one is like, a pepperoni pizza taste, where the other was definitely a meaty... almost buttery taste. My thought was the latter could be emulating Shepherd's pie.

    The Rocky Road Squares are terribly disappointing. All the components are so poorly portioned you wonder if you got a bad batch or something. Seriously!

    SPIED BUT DID NOT BUY: Iceland's "Ultimate Snacks" Roast Beef and Gravy Yorkshire Pudding Wrap.

    As in, the Tortilla wrap is not a tortilla wrap, but a big flat Yorkie Pud.

    Let me just tell you, I was insanely tempted through nothing but sheer curiosity, to buy this. There was also a Roast Chicken variant.

    I hear ya Leicester; the thought of it sounds awesome, but then you think, surely the Yorkshire Pudding "wrap" would have to be awfully soggy/soft to work, right? Hmmmm. Still tempted.

    Milkybar Krushems Milkshake at KFC! Mmmmmmm

    I saw this too, but on the rare occasion I go to KFC I vary my choices with the food. Sometimes I get a nice surprise by a risk (KFC Brazer) and sometimes I get bitter disappointment (KFC Rancher). But I never ever deviate from my Krushems choice....



    IT'S TOO GOOD. And I mean, even when there's a Milkybar one available, IT'S TOO DIFFICULT TO PASS IT BY.

    Wow, why is the Milkybar so much worse for you than Malteser?

    Remember that because it's white chocolate, it's only cocoa butter and no cocoa paste or powder; whereas cocoa powder is far more easily diluted into a drink, you require more cocoa butter for the same effect to achieve the same level of taste. Thus, White Chocolate Milkshakes/desserts are far more fatty than solid white chocolate - and why calorie-wise, equal white and milk chocolates are usually fairly similar despite the white chocolate fat content being higher.

    I imagine this would have been an extreme case of "MY DINNER DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THAT!"
    Buy it ASAP.

    Rep up for making me guffaw! AND IT ACTUALLY LET ME REP YOU UP. Wow.


    SPIED BUT DID NOT BUY: My local corner shop is selling these "Bitsa Wispa", and I'm sure they're out nationally now. I keep getting suckered in by these Twirl Bites-esque "pay four times as much just because they're the same thing bite-sized" Cadbury are into at the moment, but no doubt they'll eventually get me again with these.
