I've decided to bring Spotted In Shops back from the grave permanently...partly because there's so much new stuff in shops right now with the change of seasons/Autumn equinox and partly to save my Instagram followers the endless stream of posts. So here it is...Spotted In Shops is back, probably on a weekly basis for the time being. Huzzah!

Walkers Limited Editon Stax:

Maynards Bassetts Wine Gums Merry Mix:

I think these are just "festive" coloured wine gums. Innovative. Spotted in Morrisons.

Cadbury Roses Hazel in Caramel Sharing Bags:

Is there really a demand for these?

Cadbury Dairy Milk Snow Balls:

Now these there is a demand for! Stay tuned for my review...

Fox's Viennese Double Chocolate Dipped Fingers:

Fox's have brought out a few new biscuit varieties lately...and these ones were noted for their "interesting shape" by Nibs & Scribs via Instagram. Spotted in Tesco.

Cadbury Screme Egg has been sent to the products graveyard and has come back to life as a Ghooost Egg, just in time for Halloween!

Some new white chocolate bars from Aldi...there's also a White Crisp and Coffee & Cream variety (stay tuned for a review of the latter!)

Yeo Valley Salted Caramel N'Ice Cream:

Yogurt-based ice creams! Apparently, these have been out for ages down South...but up North they're a bit of a rarity. I saw these in Waitrose. Also available in lemon, vanilla and blackcurrant flavours.

Ben and Jerry's Empower Mint Special Edition Ice Cream:

There's so many new Ben and Jerry's flavours out right now...sadly I can't try most as they contain gluten. This one consists of mint ice cream with chocolate brownies and a chocolate fudge swirl. Spotted in Iceland.

The Coconut Collaborative Chocolate Dipped Snowconut Sticks:

At last, a coconut milk based ice cream stick! I would have bought these if they weren't ridiculously expensive. Spotted in Waitrose.

Last but not least, I leave you with more weird and wonderful creations from those barmy lasses The Chocolate Smiths. First up, Tikka Masala in White Chocolate...can we have a group "yuck!" please?! Spotted in Fenwick.

The Chocolate Smiths Prosecco Milk Chocolate Bar: 

At least this sounds more palatable!

The Chocolate Smiths Beer Milk Chocolate Bar:

More biscuity white chocolate goodness from Creighton's...

Creighton's Chocolaterie Honey Bee Milk Choclolate:

Not sure I fancy honey flavoured chocolate...

Well, I think that's quite enough new snacks for one day...if you've tried any of these please do let me know your thoughts in the comments...


  1. Hazel in caramel is the best one in Roses!

  2. I cannot wait to try the Tesco Free From Berry Christmas Cheesecake! I think I might have to take a trip to the big Tesco though as our local is naff. And I have a pot of The Collective Dairy Honeyed Plum & Stem Ginger chilling in the fridge, can't wait to try it. I ate so much of the Gingerbread Limited addition yogurt last year! I've only been disappointed by The Collective offerings a few times- The choccy orange (too strong for my liking) The coconut(I think it was with lime?) and the black cherry+dark chocolate curls duples.

  3. I scoffed half a bag of the Pop Works sweet and salty while doing my shop in Tesco on Friday. Really yummy, can't wait to try the other flavours ūüėč

  4. Wow this is a long post! Beaten only by the Christmas one you did a couple of years ago. Love reading your blog and it has given me the motivation to spend far too much money on snacks - thanks! Thought I should say thanks for introducing me to a large collection of UK based snack bloggers and to keep up the good work - hopefully I can carry on reading for another 2 years! All the best

    1. Thanks so much for your comment, really appreciate it :) I spend far too much on snacks too haha..think I may need to go on a diet soon :s All the best to you too x

  5. love this post. would be great to get a review of the Stax - can't wait to try!

    1. I have eaten 5 boxes of the source cream & onion Stax in the last 10 days... hehe they are full of flavour and the crisp is tasty also. I'd highly recommended. I just hope they continue producing them.... x

  6. Metcalfes 'Say Cheese' have been out a long time. They are really nice but very over priced

  7. Thrilled to hear this feature will be returning full-time - it's my favourite! Must find out whether those Stax taste exactly like the US ones..

  8. Where can I find the cadbury ghost eggs?

  9. I tried the crazy hot pop chips and I can safely say they weren't especially crazy or hot. They were certainly very nice but for the price of the bag (£1.50 on special offer) they didn't live up to the name.

  10. Dr Oetker pud in a mug is disgusting and doesn't work like the packet would indicate. Foruntately I only paid about 16p each in Home Bargains, but they didn't thicken up enough to be a pudding. They were like a thick and overly strong hot chocolate. I will not waste my money on them again!

    Walkers Stax are very similar to Pringles. Personally I find the Sour Cream and Onion a little too strong on the flavouring, but they are still tasty. You just need a lot of water on hand. I have a ready salted in the cupboard to try and expect better results from those. They are REALLY difficult to open however, but make a better 'pop' than Pringles which is I'm sure what they were going for. On that basis, I prefer Pringles and Pringles are re-sealable.

    I look forward to trying some of these other snacks, particularly the gluten-free cheesecake you mention. Looks like it would be handy to keep in the freezer - if indeed it was frozen?
