We're looking for 200 MNers to try out the new Primula PODs kids cheese snack with their DC. Here's what they say:
"Available in two delicious flavours, Cheese and Cheese 'n' Chive Primula PODs are packed with flavour, high in calcium and with a firm consistency that makes them the ideal lunchbox snack or after-school treat. The PODs will be sold in net bags of five, one for every school day of the week. Each POD features one of six illustrations of Primula's cute mouse character Mr Nibbles and his family, depicting their adventures as they explore POD Island. POD Island is a magical world of fantasy and fun brought to life in a fully interactive website bringing together an exciting story, rich characters and engaging games in a safe and unique online experience for your DCs."

This product test is open to all UK Mumsnetters with at least one child aged 0 - 10 years old.

If you are a chosen tester you will be sent one pack of Primula Cheese PODs and one pack of Primula Cheese 'N' Chive PODs for your DCs to try (RRP £1.40 per pack).

We would also like your DC to visit the Primula PODs website POD Island ( which is full of fun activities and educational games for your DC to explore.

Everyone who adds their feedback will be entered into a prize draw where one tester will win £150 worth of Debenhams vouchers.

I think they are really limiting their samlpe with just aged 5-10- my 1 and 3 year olds love cheese and I may be known to --binge on it from the tube--enjoy it on a cracker too

Firawla Tue 20-Nov-12 11:00:58

Phew than goodness for DS1 (9). DS2? Pah, useless at 4 years old.

mignonette Tue 20-Nov-12 11:38:07

How would they know whether you had a child of that age group? Does that rule out GP's, Childminders etc?

Done, DD loves all cheese, this would be great for her.

Noooooooooo. DS is 11 and loves cheese.

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 20-Nov-12 12:00:30

Should we have these by now? I haven't. confused

Still waiting here too.

ThatsNice Thu 06-Dec-12 12:47:05

I've not had an email. Does that mean we're not picked?

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 06-Dec-12 15:48:08

Hi all, so sorry for the delay there was a slight problem with distribution. However this has now been sorted and the PODs should be with you by Friday 14th December smile

Haberdashery Thu 06-Dec-12 21:29:53

Thanks, Katie.

LiveItUp Fri 07-Dec-12 10:35:24

Thanks for the update Katie.

That only leaves one week of pack-ps before they break up for the holidays. On the plus side - that might leave some for me to try grin

DoesntTurkeyNSproutSoupDragOn Thu 13-Dec-12 13:14:05

My pods arrived today!

mm1975 Thu 13-Dec-12 13:25:38

Mine arrived this morning, so sending 4 of my children off to school with them in their lunch boxes tomorrow, lets see what they think...

Mine have arrived too. Not tasted any yet but wanted to say I was impressed with the keep cool packaging. grin

KatzGold Thu 13-Dec-12 15:45:23

Ours arrived and DD2 declared she had to try them for after school snack - they're very yummy is her feedback!

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Thu 13-Dec-12 15:46:49

Oh maybe that's what's waiting for me at the post office and not my Kindle Case.



DoesntTurkeyNSproutSoupDragOn Thu 13-Dec-12 16:41:24

DD tried them for lunch (she is home ill). Really liked the blue one and, to my surprise, liked the chive one too.

MrsJohnDeere Thu 13-Dec-12 18:46:32

Mine came this evening.

KnittyFoxyMa Thu 13-Dec-12 20:57:50

ours came today and both DDs tried them as their after school snack. They loved them, DD1 the plain one more, DD2 the chive one more. Where is the correct place to feedback properly to have a chance of winning the vouchers?

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 14-Dec-12 09:31:04

KnittyFoxyMa I'll be sending a link to the feedback thread to you via email soon.
