As a SPECIAl treat for finding us in our new location, you are welcome to try and win a whole case (12 boxes, which is A LOT) of Dorset Cereals today. Just by leaving a comment below.
A 12-box case of the Dorset Cereals Good Honest Crunch arrived on the doorstep a while ago, kindly sent by the company for us to consider featuring. I carefully split the load in half, in order to hand over Jane’s share when I next saw her. The rest I offered up to teenagesons and their frequently-overnight- staying friends to try.
I am always a tiny bit concerned about teenagesons’ breakfast routine; often ‘breakfast’ happens at around 2.00pm, or pre sleep/post pub at around 2.00am and it’s always a giant bowl of Sugar Puffs or Honey Nut Loops, basically anything that’s sugar coated. Add chocolate (Coco Pops) and the boxes are lucky to make it to the cupboard from the Ocado delivery before being wolfed down. Offer them porridge, muesli or a healthy fruit salad with yoghurt (mine and MAD’s breakfast of choice) and they scoff in horror.
I thought the Crunch looked a bit healthier, the inclusion of toffee (in the toffee & pecan) and strawberries (in the strawberries & raspberries) would overcome the ‘health-freak’ barrier. And I was right. Within about three nights the boys had eaten their way through the lot, including Jane’s (carefully hidden -altho not carefully enough as it turns out) stash. ‘Was it nice?’ I enquired. ‘Yep’. was the united reply (there were five testers involved). That’s as profound as it got. Perhaps I’m asking a bit much of a breakfast cereal.
Anyway, a whole case awaits a lucky reader, kindly donated by Dorset Cereals, all you need to do is leave us an amusing comment here. I quite like the company’s take on life, it’s about to launch some summer festival thing that involves camper vans, we LOVE a camper van here at TWR. So I’ve nicked one of its ‘Life’s Too Short’ photos and your subject is why life is too short to waste on-line, or is it? Is your life, in fact better on line than off? Since Jane and I spend pretty much all our waking moments attached to our smart phones or computers, we’ll be interested to hear what you have to say. We’ll pick a winner by Monday evening. Off you go!
