Foodie News Burst 29/1/14

I do get quite a few press releases about new food goodies coming out, and I also keep up to date with the trade websites - so I thought a new semi-regular news update where I share what I’ve learnt might work quite well? I also though if people found interesting items in shops and let me know I could include those too? Do let me know if you like the idea, send an email or leave a comment below.

I think the most important news at the minute has to be that Walkers Do Us A Flavour is back! Walkers are calling for people to tell them their suggestions for a new flavour of crisps. They have done this in previous years, but this time there is an added element you have to start with a base ingredient, either: Somerset Cheddar, Devonshire Chicken, Norfolk Pork, Dorset Sour Cream, Vale of Evesham Tomatoes or Aberdeen Angus Beef. Then get creative! You could win £1million! To enter your flavour choice go to 

There is a new flavour of Jelly Belly coming out, and it has got Spectre rather interested! The new flavour if Draft Beer and it will be launching here very soon!

Tic Tacs are launching a new flavour too, Apple Burst, which I really am looking forward to. They will be available from February.

The success of Rowntree Randoms has inspired them to launch a mixed bag called, Sweet and Sour.

With the exception of salted popcorn, I’ve not got on very well with the savoury stuff, but I will hunt out Butterkist’s new Thai Sweet Chilli.

It is nice to see that there are new Skittles flavours on the way to the UK market, Wild Berry.

Finally ever thought about adding chocolate to your savoury crackers? Cadbury think we’ll all want to give it a go with their new bar:\

Those new Tic Tacs are already available in Belgium. I must say they are tasting quite good :).

I bought some of those new Tic Tacs in Nottingham the other day. They're rather nice, although not as intense as I was expecting.

Can't wait to taste them - which shop in Nottingham did you find them in?
