We've been asked by the team at MU Cheese to find 100 Mumsnetters and their DC to try their new MU Sticks.

MU says "Our new MU Sticks are the perfect little treat to pop into your kids' lunchboxes, or even stash in the fridge as a delicious and healthy snack. Each stick is made from 100% Cheddar and contain the equivalent of one 210ml glass of milk. What's more, they are completely natural - each yummy chunk of smooth and creamy medium cheddar is just MU Cheddar, with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives added."

We're looking for UK MNers with children aged up to 12 years old to take part in this test. If you're selected to take part you will be sent a voucher for two packs of MU Sticks worth £1.35 each (4 sticks per pack). You'll need to take the voucher along to a branch of Tesco to redeem it. Apologies on this occasion they can't send out the cheese directly due to refrigeration issues.

Please note that these products are - at the moment - only available in selected Tesco and Tesco Extra stores and also at Tesco Online - please only apply if you're able to get to one of these stores. The full list of stores where the product is available is listed in the sign up survey. Again sorry if this precludes you from the test.

If you're selected to test you will be sent the vouchers, asked to try the cheese and then to add your feedback to a thread on MN (you will be emailed the link). Everyone who is a tester and who adds their feedback will be entered into a prize draw where one family will win £100 worth of Love2Shop vouchers.

If you'd like to take part please add your details here.

Thanks and good luck

Cheers Lucjam but am way over the other side! And as much as I love free cheese... wink

Well that was a surprise. I fully expected to find that the one store on the island was not listed but it IS - so hopefully that is a sign. Bit of a trek to the other side of the island to buy but maybe a trip to the beach on the way would be a good idea.

Sorry. No store listed close enough to me.

Do it online? huh? Surely the online deliveries come from actual shops. Well, mine do anyway, and they arent on the list. confused

TodaysAGoodDay Wed 15-Aug-12 21:22:11

Thanks SpareTime, but I'm in the north west, My closest towns are Carlisle, Workington, Whitehaven, Keswick and Cockermouth (or Nob-a-gob as the locals call it grin). Baguley is hours away down south from here, but thanks anyway smile

How much cheese is a month's worth?

hmm grin

TodaysAGoodDay Wed 15-Aug-12 22:28:10

Oooo, we could easily eat several kilos worth! DS and I are cheese monsters grin

What an odd selection of shops - the only one near me (Manchester) is in a store which is failing badly as it is so big the locals can't walk round it, and now go by bus to a competitor -maybe it's a ploy to get us into shops that aren't getting enough custom.

I use a different tesco, and 8 tubes of cheese ain't going to be worth the petrol.

LackaDAISYcal Thu 16-Aug-12 08:23:29

5 stores in Yorkshire, two of which are in that massive urban

LackaDAISYcal Thu 16-Aug-12 08:29:32

That massive urban metropolis, York, and one in Hull, the arse end of nowhere (no offense intended to the good citizens of Hull and its environs). Only one store in the whole of the hugely populated Leeds/Bradford conurbation?
Sorry, but it would take more than a few free bits of cheese to encourage me to use Tesco online.

I give my child cheese sticks in their lunch box, cut from a large block. We reckon it works out less than a quarter of the price of nonsense string cheese etc.

shaztwins1 Thu 16-Aug-12 13:34:39

im north west too the only store that stocks it near me is an hour away !!!!! i like cheese but ot that much grin so looks like we cant apply

ChinUpChestOut Fri 17-Aug-12 09:57:52

I'm a cheese lover. I really am. But cheese sticks? Really? This is the next big thing in cheese? Small sticks of cheese in yet more packaging? What's wrong with cutting a wedge of cheese off the one in the fridge, wrapping it in reusable tin foil, and lobbing in the DC's lunch boxes?

Having said that - if they want to give some away for free, then who are we to say no?

MonsterBookOfTysons Fri 17-Aug-12 13:53:37

Done, I want this test, the dc love cheese grin

sparklystar Fri 17-Aug-12 14:00:58
