Well does it?

I don't have any here, and I need to know.

Ta ever so.

DS1 had to have his crisps opened 'upside over' confused

Not at all particularly when the butter slab is nearly as large as the biscuit, it's quite easy to eat, bar the odd thousand crumbs.

But if you're going to apply butter to anything, surely there are many other things that you would reach for before you felt the need to butter a bix? Give me a croissant in preference any day!

Oh gosh! I'm so pleased someone's brought up Weetabix! I love it, however, the issues with it are endless. Firstly, yes of course....
It has to be the right way up!
It has to have the right amount of milk so it is not too soggy......
Not too crunchy either though!
If you have more than one, and not a large enough bowl for them both to lie flat then you have to manoeuvre them in the milk to assure they both attain the same level of not to soggy/not too crunchiness.
You have to eat them quick enough that they don't go soggy/slow enough that they are not under soaked.
And last, but most certainly not least, it is impossible to get them out of the packet without spilling crumbs!! I have presented many of my friends and family with my so called 'WEETABIX CHALLENGE'' and not one of them can do it. So I challenge you all! Can you get a Weetabix out of the packet and into your bowl without spilling a crumb?!!
The challenges are endless but its so worth it when you get your perfect Weetabix at the end of it....mmmmmmmm!

I can't believe this is still going grin

Yey! Weetabix Challenge! Do let me know if any of you manage it (which in turn will confirm you are some kind of superior being).

Has anyone mentioned mini-weetabix in one of the previous 157 posts? Do they all need to be the right way up too?! Porridge has got to be a simpler option but wouldn't lead to such a brilliant discussion. Loads better than Question Time and Cyprus and Banks and stuff smilesmile

The 'no-crumb' one is easy - take unopened packet of Weetabix out of box. Put in bowl - slice packet at correct number of 'bixes, slice side of bit in bowl, shimmy paper out from underneath. Voila!

(Or you could keep the paper for some extra celluose either. grin)

I can't believe how long I have spent staring at photos of weetabix.

However, I have a confession to make......

I prefer them upside down! shock I would eat them the way of photo three. <hangs head in shame>

CutePuppy. To the doghouse with you. For shame!

Love this thread smile

The Tesco value ones are more square at the ends.
And they're more hydrophobic (milkophobic??)grin grin
