Flipz – White Fudge Covered Pretzels (Asda) [By @Cinabar]



Flipz are an American product that used to be available in the UK. I can remember having them when I was at school, and loving their mix of sweet and savoury. Basically they are salty pretzels covered in a sweet coating.
Having said that, this particular bag of Flipz may well have been made in America, but they were sold in a UK supermarket, in the chocolate and sweets isle. I know Asda are linked with Wal-Mart, so have more American goodies than other shops, but I was quite excited to find them on the shelf. The Tesco not too far away from me stocks Lucky Charms too, interesting times!
These particular Flipz are a variety I haven’t tried before, and wasn’t sure what to expect. The phrase White Fudge doesn’t quite mean much to me to be totally honest, but I picked them up anyway! Once opened the aroma from the pack reminded me of breakfast cereal, I don’t mean your healthy muesli I mean the kids kind, aka my kind!
The flavour was quite something, as far as I can tell white fudge is a cross between regular fudge and white chocolate, but with a hint of Caramac about it! It should be sickly sweet but the pretzel flavour and the salt really break it up, creating the most wonderful tasty crunchy savoury sweet mix of flavour.
Ok so perhaps when I said the salt stopped it from being sickly, I hadn’t reckoned on eating half the large bag to myself before this blog was written... darn they are moreish though!

I used to love these when they were originally released in the UK, all those years ago. Might have to have a trip to Asda! :)
