for jammy and toffee dodgers?

The little biscuit monkeys give me the creeps, and I am not tempted to buy the biscuits at all.

Does anyone like them - the monkeys that is, I know there are people who love jammy dodgers lol.

No YANBU. That ad totally gives me the heebie geebies. Scary.

WhiteTrash Sun 05-Jun-11 13:50:52

YANBU. I wondered if it would scare ds when he saw it.

It didnt. Just me.

The toffee monkey looks like my ex BIL.

For that reason alone I don't eat them.

katvond Sun 05-Jun-11 13:56:37

It scared my DD too

They are creepy, it's put me right off eating a jammy dodger for a good while!

God, my mother will tell anyone she meets about how creepy this advert is too grin

LadyBeagleEyes Sun 05-Jun-11 14:14:53

Definitely creepy OP.
And I'm partial to a jammy dodger me. But these evil monkeys are not selling them to me

Ah, the kids love it!

UndiscoveredApprentice Sun 05-Jun-11 14:16:26

Phew so glad it is not just me lol. I wonder if their marketing team will ever read this thread ha ha.

YANBU.They are creepy,almost as much as the Birdseye polar bear.And the toffee dodgers are awful.

Nanny0gg Sun 05-Jun-11 14:52:34

I'll not buy them now out of sheer bloody-mindedness over the awfulness of this advert.

katvond Sun 05-Jun-11 14:56:19

The polar bear one I like

katvond Sun 05-Jun-11 14:57:27

But give me a meerkat anyway smile

worraliberty grin
I wonder who thought they'd be a good marketing idea because it's put me off buying them.

SixtyFootDoll Sun 05-Jun-11 15:19:38

I can't bear it either, I won't be buying toffee dodgers for sure.

BatsInTheSnowglobe Sun 05-Jun-11 15:27:29

Hate that advert i switch it off those monkeys are the stuff nightmares are made of!

stoatie Sun 05-Jun-11 15:30:36

Hate the Birds Eye Polar bear - especially the new advert which results in Kevin getting the sack - I find it menacing and unpleasant

Happyhippychick Sun 05-Jun-11 15:44:01

Horrid creepy polar bear <shivers>

dwpanxt Sun 05-Jun-11 15:47:33

Hate the Birds Eye Polar bear-so creepy.

Both the toffee monkey and the toffee dodgers are awful.Saw a display of chocolate dodgers in Tesco but didn't even contemplate buying them - the toffee dodgers have put me right off alternative dodger buying.

ratspeaker Sun 05-Jun-11 16:50:01


They creep me out too
and that polar bear < shudder >
If that wifie was to write here about her relationship with that sinister controlling bear we'd be telling her to grab the kids and leave him asap

carabos Sun 05-Jun-11 16:54:13

OP totally agree - they are nightmarish.

maxcliffordslovechild Sun 05-Jun-11 16:54:17

YANBU those monkeys are awful and menacing and the polar bear, is he mafia? i'm sure i saw him in the godfather

LolaRennt Sun 05-Jun-11 17:05:20

Oh has any one seen the one with the boy eating breakfast and hit pets are discussing it? Then the old dog says "get it down yer boy" euggh. Just sounds wrong every time
