There are three new flavours; Tropical Twister, Apple Berry Blitzer and Toffee Apple Tangle. All three are 'No Added Sugar'.
Tropical Twister is a blend of apple, orange and pineapple juice, with a hint of passion fruit, banana, apricot, blackcurrant and mango. I'm not quite sure how the apple and blackcurrant managed to find their way in!
Apple Berry Blitzer is apple, blackberry and red grape juice.
Toffee Apple Tange is a mix of apple juice and caramel flavour.

The new flavours are...
Apple Burst (described as sweeter than the Somersby Original)
Blackberry (described as mild-yet-tangy)
Each flavour is available in 4 x 330ml and 500ml bottle serves.
Also, newly available in 'share packs' are smaller bottles (275ml) of sophisticated non-alcoholic drink Shloer. Currently only the White Grape and Red Grape varieties are available from Tesco at £4.29 for a pack of 4.
The new version is described as a “crispy, golden biscuit with a soft, jammie centre”, but interestingly, it has also been described by a company spokesman as having a "more adult appeal". This statement surely implies the inferiority of the 'childlike' Jammie Dodgers, but I know plenty of adults who would unashamedly eat them. Anyway, the new biscuit/cake will come in two flavours – raspberry and apricot – and cost £1.49 for a packet.
Also, new to the Jammie Dodger's family is a celebration cake. It's available at Tesco and Asda at £7 (rsp). As expected, it is a golden sponge with raspberry jam (so far, so Victoria Sponge!), but it decorated with soft icing, caramelised sugar syrup, and of course, finished with a heart of raspberry jam.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Oat Crunch:
Similar to the Dairy Milk Lu and Ritz bars, this is a 30g bar of chocolate sandwiched between two oat-topped biscuits. At 150 cal per bar, this could be a well deserved mid-morning nibble!
Nestlé has created a limited edition Toffee Crisp Honeycomb that retails at 59p. 197 cal per bar.
While I'm still wearing my thick winter jacket, my woolly hat and the central heating is still being turned on before tea time, it's hard to imagine needing too cool off. Yet, my crocus bulbs are out and I've seen my first lambs of the year. Spring is well and truly on it's way. So what better way to herald the arrival of a new season than with a brief introduction to some of the ice creams that will (hopefully) soon be cooling us down...
Rowntree's Randoms Mini Ice creams:
The box of 12 will include three flavours of the new ice lollies: lemon and lime, orange, and strawberry. They consist of a fruit-flavoured shell, marshmallow ice cream and blackcurrant jelly centre. They will become available in major UK retailers from this month.
Almond Dream: These dairy alternatives are already available from Waitrose.
ew pineapple, orange and passionfruit-flavoured lolly would be released next month.
The Yoo Moo frozen yogurt tubs have been on our shelves for a few years now, but they have now ventured into lollies. Each lolly consists of swirled fruit and natural frozen yogurt, and each box of 6 will include Mixed Berry, Tropical and Strawberry flavours. It is due to retail at around £2.50.
Peanut Buttuh cookie: Peanut Butter ice cream with crunch peanut butter sugar bits, peanut butter cookies and a peanut butter cookie core.
Boom Chocolatta cookie: Creamy mocha and caramel ice cream with chocolate cookies fudge flakes and a chocolate cookie core.
Spectacular Speculoos cookie: Dark Caramel and Vanilla ice creams with crushed, cinamony-spiced Speculoos cookies and a core of Speculoos cookie butter.
Which one to try first????

I chose this one because the combination of grape and lemonade really intrigued me....

In almost every other way, they resemble Snack a Jacks. Although, significantly, they are not a rice cake; they are made from cassava and tapioca flour. They're also available in 'Thai Sweet Chilli' and 'Cheese and Onion'. If anyone has experience of these other flavours, please let me know.

Apparently this is different from the four-finger version, in that the fingers have chocolate on the bottom, rather than being toffee all the way around. I don't think I'd like the four-finger version, because I found this little bar sweet enough (and I have a sweet-tooth!). In fact, the toffee is a little bit sickly but the chocolate made the overall eating experience alright. This little bar could be paired nicely with a coffee!
