Unsurprisingly Gary didn't feature in the box which housed the new kids healthy snack of 'hoops and crosses'. We did, instead, get a 'cheeky' little monkey - christened 'Millie Monkey' and was stealthily taken by my daughter to her bedroom before the other two staked a claim.
So what of the snack? Firstly given that this a diet blog I thought we'd give them a try. I like wholegrain and so does my daughter although not so much my eldest. In fact, he's such a nightmare when it comes to food that I often threaten him with the 'food doctor'. My kids do have crisps but only at the weekend - everything in moderation and all that even if they are the healthier option.
I like they come in smaller gram bags - 18g so less crisps to eat and are 85 cal - by the way I have recently purchased a calorie counter book more of which later. I tried one (remember Frazzle attack?) and they were very nice - I have yet to taste a bad crisp have you?
Anyhow, I noticed we received a very retro 'roast beef' flavour. I wondered if we could play noughts and crosses on the table - my clean table I hasten to add - but that lasted about 50 seconds as I had to explain an imaginary grid and naturally the kids just wanted to eat them as quickly as possible.
