Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Mentos Up2U Gum Confirmed sighting: Mentos Up2U Gum
Posted: 18:59 Sun 22-Jan-2012. Price: Possibly 1/14 "sugarfree gums". Location: Asda, Old Kent Road. Sub-flavours: Sweet Mint and Bubble Fresh, other minty combos.
Snackspot reports: In the US, it looks like the flavours include Mandarin/Strawberry-plus-Spearmint, but this was the most adventurous option I could spot in Asda (complete with perturbing Caesar quotation on the inside). Also, I didn't read the packet and assumed the pink flavour was strawberry, so imagine my surprise to discover it's much more like, well, whatever the hell Hubba Bubba is supposed to taste of. Overall, it's a zany idea with some snappy packaging, tragically overshadowed by the fact that I finally found their 3 Layer Gum with green tea in it in Tesco's, which is just a bit nicer all round.

...Anyway, in other fruity chews: Wrigley are doing a bigger launch of Strawberry Extras, plus a new kind of 5 which "which starts off as a sour pear flavour and turns sweeter as it is chewed". Plus: White Choc, Double Choc, Orange, or Peanut Butter are the competing Kit Kat Chunkies spotted by "hannah" in Nottingham Tesco, and dismissed by "Allan" as "Four 'Facebook' flavours, three of which have been out before!" - at least Gobble Monkey refuses to be taken in, perhaps deciding to "have a break" from the site's extensive Percy Pig coverage towards the end of last year.

Comment: In other news... I've had a search on the site and I think McDonald's current Apple And Blackberry Pie hasn't been seen in this country for several years - plus PepsiCo are currently handing out 250ml bottles of Tropicana in Trafalgar Square if anyone's nearby!

Comment: ah I do now have a new sighting for this week but there's been a slight mix-up with the pictures - anyway, I'm a big Phone Shop fan but have yet to spot any Kit Kat Double Choc support from whoever Miranda Hennessey is (below), plus doesn't "Chunky Champion" sound a bit more like something the characters might call each other, in a potentially disparaging manner..?

"Each of the new flavours is being promoted by a comedian. Kit Kat Chunky Orange is supported by Miles Jupp, from Balamory, In The Thick Of It and Rev. Kit Kat Chunky White Choc is supported by Tony Gardner, from in The Thick Of It and Lead Balloon. Kit Kat Chunky Double Choc is supported by Miranda Hennessey, from Phone Shop. Finally, Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter is supported by Jason Lewis, star of his own MTV show, The Jason Lewis Experience."
