Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Lotus Caramelised Biscuit Spread Confirmed sighting: Lotus Caramelised Biscuit Spread
Posted: 18:05 Mon 24-Dec-2012. Price: 2.49/400g jar. Location: Waitrose, Glasgow, Scotland. Sub-flavours: Smooth or crunchy.
Zeddy reports: Stand aside peanut butter, there is a new kid on the block and it means to sweep aside all pretenders to its throne. Remember those Lotus biscuits that you often are offered with a coffee in upmarket waiting rooms? Remember how good they actually taste? That's the cinnamon in them.

Lotus bakeries have now launched the fabled spread that was mentioned a long while back on www.nicecupofteaandasitdown.com. I bought the crunchy variety and can announce that it is fabulous. Like the biscuit but as a spread with little crunchy biscuit pieces within it! They tell you to try it on toast but that for me will only be the beginning. My other half has suggested "icing a cake" with it and that may be on my to-do list. If you like the biscuits I think you will love this stuff.

...Thanks Z - if only "Matthew" had provided similar evidence of the Kit Kat Chunky Champion 2013 Editions (mint, hazlenut, chocolate fudge, or coconut), claiming he: "Just popped into my local [Norwich] newsagent and saw these all stacked up on the counter - different set of flavours this year. I have bought a coconut one, which I have yet to eat. Best sighting ever. The Facebook page is up too - http://www.facebook.com/kitkatuk/app_464212296957743."

Snackspot should be back next weekend for the usual review of the best and worst products of the year, so get your nominations in now - and, while you're not doing that (or even while you are), have a great Christmas!

Comment: I should have added that you can get your money back with the ticket on the lid, even if you like the stuff!

Comment: I used to like nicecupofteaandasitdown. It's not been updated for years and yet the hosting is still being paid for. I wonder what happened?

Merry Christmas folks.

Comment: I tried the coconut one yesterday and was quite underwhelmed. As stated in the blog, it is in the chocolate rather than in the wafer.

It therefore does not have the same substantial taste as say a Tunnock's caramel log which has toasted coconut on the outside.

I wish the mint one was with plain chocolate rather than milk.
