Mintel's Global New Products Database has seen many exciting new food product launches from May 2001. Cakes get biscuit & chocolate taste Two brands, from biscuits and confectionery, are being extended into the UK cakes market.  The Galaxy chocolate countline brand from Mars is being added to McVitie's range of cake muffins.  It joins the likes of Jaffa Cakes muffins and M&M's brownie.  Also, Jammie Dodgers biscuits from Burton's Biscuits are coming out in a cake variety distributed by Lowthers Cakes.  It is not the first time the biscuits have been extended.  In the past we have seen Jammie Dodgers fruit gums (back in 1999), and dipping biscuit sticks with a separate jam sauce (in 2000).
