I liked Monster Munch when I was a kid. Good to see they re-introduced it but I can't remember what the old one tasted like to compare it :(

Are Violet Crumbles still for sale anywhere in NZ?

 

 

 

 

Aren't they identical to Crunchies but in purple wrapping?

Slightly different inner - they have honeycomb flavouring, whereas Crunchies are more hokey-pokey.

Whatever that nicer bun was that The Boss burger originally came with. Then McD's took the burger away, then brought it back in the standard bun. Not that I go to McD's often, but I remember it was nice!

Pretty sure that's actually still used with some burgers... anything Angus Beef for a start. Er, does Maccas NZ have the Southwest BLT and suchlike?

Almond Mars bar came and went. Was later reintroduced as an Almond Snickers, but that has disappeared as well.

I was thrilled to find Big M in Australia - I haven't seen that here since the 80s! Zap was good too.
