As a life-long ardent fan of Red Vines (read article of love here), I'm so ashamed that I've never bothered to question the identity of their flavor. They are simply and beautifully red flavor. So when I picked up this box of Cherry Vines, I was floored by the fact that I have no idea whether Red Vines are strawberry or raspberry or fruit punch flavor. What are they? Besides perfection, that is. Cherry Vines are delicious but not nearly as good as the original. The cherry flavor is good, but doesn't present anything new. I certainly wouldn't choose to eat them over the classics. They still beat Twizzlers by a long shot.

read here), two readers, Rodzilla and Chris, both answered my query! (Big thanks, readers!) Apparently the flavor is Milk Coffee, which I never would have guessed. Years ago my friend Matt purchased a case of the American release of Coffee Kit Kats (and unfortunately I consumed about half of that case) and they tasted so distinctively of coffee. I guess the Milk element of these Milk Coffee bars is the primary flavor with a more subtle Coffee undertone. As I said, they're good and I consumed them in seconds, but it's not an obvious connection to the flavor they're striving for. The Royal Milk Tea Kit Kats (read review here) were also heavy on the Milk flavor, but the underlying Tea flavor was a bit more distinctive than the Coffee.
I would be very grateful if an astute reader could identify the flavor of this mysterious Kit Kat bar for me. I just ate the whole thing and remained perplexed even after. It's a white chocolate base with a light underlying floral tea flavor, but I can't identify the floral notes. Jasmine? This mystery is driving me wild!

Hoorah!! Today the Washington Post Lifestyle Blog reports major news: a new Girl Scout Cookie added to this year's selection. Savannah Smiles are lemon cookies named after the founder of the Girl Scouts, Juliette Gordon Low. I can't say that they seem as enticing as a Thin Mint or a Samoa, but the whole line is so tasty, these may offer a lovely lemony surprise! I'm so excited!
