    I definitely need to go to Lidl and Aldi more often - it seems like all these obscure delights are from one or both of those!

    Toffifee's! They're a German toffee, with a roasted hazelnet, and chocolate on top.

    I LOVE Toffifee :love:

    These are so good!
    Don't know if you get them in the UK, I think there should be one. There are different types like there another one with hazelnut chocolate or coconut, etc.

    Coco pops jumbos are a lesser known variant of the Coco Pops range - they have the same size and texture of Nesquik Cereal, but with that distinctive Coco Pops taste! YUMZERS!

    oh wow. They sound joy. Are they soft like pops, or firm like Nesquik? I'd say Nesquik were a TINY bit too hard for my liking. Somewhere in the centre would be perfeccccts.
    It's exactly that! Not the mouth-raping texture of Golden Nuggets or Nesquik cereal, but firmer than, say, Coco Pops. Think maybe somewhere close to Moons and Stars...

    Char siu buns:



    Plus, I've discovered that you can buy them frozen from an Asian supermarket and cook them in a vegetable steamer. :love:
    This!! Now I really want some char siu buns!

    Also, Maxibon ice creams. They sell them everywhere in Spain and the Canary Islands, but I always seem to have trouble finding them in the supermarkets here!

    That's weird, I just made a post about Maxibons being dirt cheap here in Newcastle at the minute, in another thread. Did you read my post or was it just SUPERCOINCIDENCE?

    Yep - the Heron Supermarket (freezer shop in the centre) is currently selling Maxibons for FIVE FOR A POUND.

    *pause for drama*

    That's right.

    Fentimans ginger beer
    It burns your throat a lot, but it has an awesome aftertaste and it grows on you

    (Also good is Bundaberg root beer)

    I've gotta give it to parenica - Slovak smoked cheese, usually comes in rolls.

    No treats for me guessing that it's you who started (yet another) food thread. :grin:

    Anyway, I don't know the name of it, but it's basically green bananas (the ones you're supposed to cook) cooked in tomato sauce added with coconut milk, and depending on your choice, you can have either lamb or fish in it. I think it's typically called banana and meat/fish stew.

    Just thought of another one - bak kwa: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakkwa

    Pork jerky basically, but tastes oh so good! I think you can buy it in Asian food stores, but don't quote me on that!

    Ritter Sport is the chocolate of gods. God addicted to this stuff in Italy many years ago and practically live on it when I'm skiing. Can't find the white with hazlenuts in the UK but Fenwick sells a couple of different bars in the food hall, and Aldi sells mini Ritter Sport packs which are cheap and fantastic!



    And these! Little chocolate bars with strawberry cream inside. Heaven! Haven't found a UK stockist yet though ):



    And I can't find a picture but Aldi apple pie cookies, come in like a green metallic wrapper? Amazing! Just try them!
