Cadbury Marvellous Creations Orange Lolly

It's time we took a look at the final new flavour for the Marvellous Creations block and bar range from Cadbury. The full title is 'Orange Lolly Orange Chew Fizzy Crunch' - let's see if the chocolate is better than the mash-up of words that is that name!

Mars M&M's Pineapple

This time last year, Mars released M&M's Raspberry. Although there's been another seasonal release between now and then (Vanilla Shake), it seems Mars has returned to fruit for flavour inspiration with its new release, M&M's Pineapple.

Cadbury Marvellous Creations Cola Popping Candy

After the not-so-fun combination of Toffee Apple Chew (please don't hurt me Cadbury), I'm looking forward to trying the next new flavour in the stable of Cadbury's Marvellous Creations range. Like the rest of its brethren, Cola Popping Candy is a wacky combination of ingredients, mixed through Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate.

Sour Patch Kids

Sour Patch Kids are a worldwide favourite, especially in the US. They only reached Australian shores earlier this year, and are available here in three formats; a 170g bag, a medium-size 65g single serve, and mini 'funsize' bags that are about 20g each. The flavours are a generic mix - the packet doesn't elaborate but the flavours are fruit-inspired. In other countries, specialised flavours are available, including Blue Raspberry, Berries, Extreme, and other flavours.

Cadbury Marvellous Creations Toffee Apple Chew

Intent on making a splash, and capitalising on the loyalty gained last year with the initial launch of the Marvellous Creations range from Joyville, Cadbury have released three new flavours into the carnival-inspired range, plus additional products. The large blocks see the three new flavours: Toffee Apple Crunch, Orange Lolly Chew and Cola Popping Candy, with two of those also introduced into the 45g medium bars (cola and orange), and all three in the ice creams range. In addition, a bagged 'bitesize' range has debuted, with another three new flavours. All will be reviewed in time!

Let's dive in with the most interesting block - Toffee Apple Crunch. Head after the jump to read more!

Gossip: New Marvellous Creations products in store!

That was quick!

Have a look below for images of the new flavours in the large blocks and medium-sized bars, and the brand new bitesize flavours as well! The blocks were spotted in Woolworths and the bitesize bags in Coles, but I imagine they will be available across all channels relatively quickly.

Hey! - followers of my Twitter account and/or Facebook page get new release gossip as I find it on the shelves, but it can take me a little while to compile it all here for blog readers, so make sure you follow me on Twitter, or like the Facebook page to get up-to-date info!

Where oh where do I begin? It's been a little while since I've pulled everything together for a gossip column, but I think we should go straight to the most exciting one:

Lindt Creation Sublime Mint

Last year, Lindt & Sprungli added yet another version of their Swiss chocolates to their constantly growing range: Creation. The initial release of the flavoured 100g blocks included Velvety Vanilla Almond, Creme Brulee, Divine Hazelnut and Sumptous Dark Orange. The first three are milk chocolate, while the later is made using dark chocolate. Recently Lindt added another dark chocolate block to the range: Sublime Mint.

Nestle Kit Kat Bites

My first experience with Kit Kat Bites wasn't today - it was actually a few years ago. Flash sale site Grocery Run (an off-shoot of the more popular Catch of the Day) was selling imported confectionery, and among them were a medium-sized bag of Kit Kat Bites. Intriguied, I bought them (alongside other American candy), and when they arrived I promptly devoured the bag. This was before my days as a lolly reviewer, so I don't have the wrapper and can't even tell you the country of origin, but I remember that I enjoyed them enough to go searching my local stores for the red foil bag. Of course I was sorely disappointed and came home empty-handed. Now they're here - so let's see if they are as good as I remember.

Chupa Chup Fairy Floss Bubble Gum

Lollypops are a little bit of a niche product that doesn't get a lot of attention in the Australian confectionery market. Aside from Starburst Sucks, Chupa Chups don't really have any real competitors, and for goo reason. There isn't a whole lot that you can do with a lollypop, except play with flavours a little. So imagine my surprise when I spotted the new Chupa Chups Fairy Floss Bubble Gum on the shelf recently.
