I just realized, there's a NSFW image rather far down on the via link.

I've never seen these snacks before! Why? Now I want to eat something I've never seen!

Mmmmm, Ghost Pops with evaporated (0%) milk — watch 'em disappear!

Just what I needed, chased through the market by snack food.

Although, I'd probably buy some at least once, just because it was a cool concept.

Looks like they're S. African. Darn it. Africans get all the luck.

Trolley starts moving (work for engineers! ) , elder gets an heart stroke (more work for the MD), the ambulance chasing lawyers sues, the blog blogs !

And the consumer, as always, bends over and gets one for everybody else. Why don't they just attract my attention with a better product ?

I can't see a picture of a supermarket without thinking of Chad Vader. I could see him using the Force to move that cart around.

Awesome. My grandmother was killed by an automated shopping cart filled with snack chips. Thanks for reminding me, Ghost Pops!!! :-(

Ahhh, Simba snack brands! I spent some time in Southern Africa, so I can attest to have tried many varieties within the Simba repertoire.

It appears this ad campaign won some awards.

Most of their 'sweets,' as I remember them, weren't very good. Low quality chocolate, gummy cookies/biscuits. The savories, on the other hand...mmmm....give me some Chili flavored or Chicken BBQ flavored Simba chips any day!

Didn't know there was such a connection between here and there. I'll try to be more responsible in the future.
