  • Attention Gaytime fans: there’s a new chocolate edition on the block and it’s only available from 7-Eleven. Watch out for a taste test coming soon.


  • its not a new Gaytime flavour. that was around in the late 80s early 90s if i remember correctly.

    • There definitely was a chocolate version of the Gaytime available in the 80s, but from memory it had chocolate biscuit crumbs on the outside while this one looks like the same crumbs as the Golden version.

    • There was also a Cappuccino one which was pretty good. I’d hoped they might bring that back as well one day.

  • …and it’s only available from 7-Eleven,

    And bizarrely there are still no 7-Elevens in SA…

  • The current Gaytime feels like a food chemist’s clone of the ones I had enjoyed so much in the 70s. Just look at the ingredients:

    Dairy ingredients (reconstituted buttermilk and/or reconstituted skim milk, milk solids, cream), cane sugar, vegetable oil, wheat flour, glucose syrup (from wheat, contains preservative 223), malt extract (from barley), flavours, gelatine, emulsifiers (471, soybean lecithin, 476), cocoa, salt, mineral salt (500), vegetable gums (401, 410, 407), colour (160b, 100, 120).
