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

Sunflower - I had seen your message so looked in every single fridge in the shop, and they weren't there. I asked and member of staff said "everything we have is out on the shelves". There were no gaps, and I even checked the shelf labels in case they were out of stock. sad

Biscuit-did you ask a member of staff?
see my note below about them being in a separate fridge away from all the other MU products!

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 03-Sep-12 10:56:42

Biscuit - we are making our client aware of this - thanks for letting us know - it's being looked into. thanks. We will update when we know more

Well I have looked for them in my local Tesco, which was on the list of shops where they were available and cannot find them. They had Mu blocks of cheese, Mu slices of cheese and Mu grated cheese, but not these.

I also looked in another huge Tesco nearby, not sure if it was on the list or not, but it had all the other products but not the cheddar sticks.

Is there a distribution problem? Will we be able to buy them soon?

Just a quick note for all of you selected...

I found them in my local Tesco store today- which wasn't actually one of the branches listed.
They were not in the usual chilled cabinet with all the other cheese stick/string type products.
They were at the end of an aisle in a separate silver fridge thing, so it's definitely worth asking and looking around a bit more.

Will do, Ann. Thanks smile

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 28-Aug-12 14:48:31

yes - the vouchers are still being sent out - some folks will have already had theirs and some are still to arrive. Do let us know if by Monday you've not had anything.

Pinot Tue 28-Aug-12 14:46:14

I was selected but haven't heard anything, Hope it's all OK?

Hi lucjam I'm sorry about that, I'll let MU know and PM you when I've heard from them.

I got a letter today from MU cheese saying thanks for taking part but there were no vouchers, I assume they meant to send the vouchers with the letter???

MimsyBorogroves Thu 23-Aug-12 07:12:29
