How Far Do You Go For Chocolate?

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

So, we have Tim Tams in every imaginable permutation and combination. But that doesn’t stop me feeling like we get short-changed on flavour options for other things. Especially when I spotted this...

A brief pootle reveals just how many hitherto-unimagined flavours one chocolate bar can come in...

Green tea...

Ramune... and it's blue! Don't think I've ever seen blue chocolate before...

Baked potato (a whole new way to eat a bucket-load of carbohydrates in one go!)

And, with the prize for the most specific and mystifying title... Muscat of Alexandria (sounds a bit like a stage name)...

Back on Tim Tams, the new Crush ones are unexpectedly good. Although I think they should be branded as something other than a Tim Tam (hopping on an established bandwagon to get the sales up, you reckon?!). The first time I had one, I didn’t even know it was a Tim Tam. Which raises the question of how far something can vary from the original while still being marketed under the same umbrella? A bit like how far from the beach you can wear your underpants, perhaps...
