Gossip: New Cadbury Blocks Packaging, New Mentos, and Marvelous Creations Ice Cream!

First up, reader Haley has alerted me to the fact that Cadbury's popular Marvelous Creations range has branched out into the realm of ice cream. While it's not strictly a lolly product and thus won't be reviewed, I thought some readers might be interested in hearing about them! Let us know in the comments if you have tried them, and think the ice creams are better or worse than the chocolate blocks.

Staying with Cadbury, while out today I spotted that Cadbury is putting is 200-220g block range through yet another packaging overhaul. This time we're seeing the removal of the bold colour that currently takes up the bottom half of the front side, and the introduction of an art-inspired product name.

The new design also includes the sentence case version of the Dairy Milk logo that we first saw when the new packaging for the Bubbly blocks was introduced late last year. What do you think of the new design? (You can sort of see the old design of the Crunchie block in that picture.)

Finally, Mentos has issued another limited edition single-flavour roll of dragees in Grape. I'll have these reviewed soon!

See a new product on the shelves! Give us a yell by sending your gossip to

Mars Pods Cookies and Cream

It feels like ages since we've had a new Pods flavour from Mars, and that's true - the last flavour, Honeycomb Bites, came out in early 2012. It's good to see a new flavour hitting the market, ven if it is the current 'flavour of the moment', cookies and cream.

Starburst Snakes and Ladders

Recently three new varieties of Starburst jellies have popped up at my local Coles supermarket - Noughts and Crosses, Snakes and Ladders, and Very Berry Chews. Today I'll be looking at Snakes and Ladders - and why does the pack look so different to other Starburst, anyway?

Cadbury Boost Nuts

The newest seasonal version of the Cadbury Boost bar is simply called 'Nuts' , though it would be better of called 'Peanuts' those are the only nuts in use here. The milk chocolate bar has a soft choc centre stuffed with peanuts, and then a layer of caramel is added before the final enrobing of Cadbury milk chocolate.
