Making Lunches fun with a bit of Monkey Business

The postman rat-a-tat-tatted on our door last Saturday - always fun as that means a parcel - yay! I was a bit non-plussed by this particular package until I remembered that I had said I would review some of Walkers Baked Hoops and Crosses - their new crispy snacks.
What's in there then?
The rather exciting looking box was fallen on immediately by the girls who wanted to know what it was all about - the intriguing hole in the top leaving us guessing. There were squeals of delight from Little Miss Sunshine when she found a toy monkey holding a bag of crisps inside. Much undignified monkey business followed as they fought over said packet of crisps.

Awww it's a monkey -and crisps!!
The packet we were sent was Roast Beef flavour and we all thought they were very tasty, light and crsipy. The girls in particular fell on them with great delight - although to be honest I've rarely known them turn down a crisp as they are very much treats in the Rollercoaster House. They would probably have enjoyed all the flavours - there is also Prawn Cocktail and Salt and Vinegar.

The Hoops and Crosses are fun (although I'm not sure I really need to encourage my kids to play with their food!) The relative healthiness is obviously a good thing- they are 56% wholegrain with no artificial colours or preservatives and only 85 calories per bag (I think that's good but I don't tend to take too much notice of calories!) The wholegrain thing is more of a biggy I think - we always have brown bread and my kids get plenty but apparently 27% of kids don't get any - nada, none at all - that's quite shocking so Walkers Hoops and Crosses will give you some in a packet of crisps- gotta be good for some. I would buy them again and the girls would be delighted to get a packet in their lunchbox as their Friday treat and I would be happy to put them in my lunchbox too!

And as for the monkey - she has been named Martha the Monkey (don't forget the the or you will be in trouble) and has been added to Little Miss Sunshine's forever growing menagerie!
