We've been asked by the team at McVitie's to find 50 testers to try their new Breakfast Biscuits. McVities say "Today more and more consumers are too busy, or start their commute too early, to enjoy breakfast at home; consequently the market for out of home breakfast solutions is fast-growing - and McVitie's Breakfast Biscuits provide the perfect answer. Using our passion for baking, we've created a range of unique recipes, specially designed for breakfast. We've taken a handful of hearty porridge oats and added a range of ingredients like fruit and honey to create sustaining and delicious breakfast biscuits".

The Breakfast Biscuits are baked until "perfectly golden, to enjoy as a part of a deliciously satisfying breakfast". They are also portion-wrapped in handy packets of four biscuits six packs per box. And available in Oats & Honey, Red Berries and Apple, Sultana & Cinnamon flavours.

RRP: £2.29 for a 6 pack carton

We need to find 50 UK based testers for this - we are especially looking for MNers who are on the look out for something new for breakfast and who like the sound of these new bars.

If you are selected to take part you'll be sent 3 packs - one of each variety and asked to try them over a few days. We'd then need you to add feedback to a thread on Mumsnet

Everyone who is selected as a tester and adds feedback as required will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a £250 voucher.

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

Thanks and good luck

Sugar & carbs is not a good breakfast. At all...

Bicnod Wed 09-Jan-13 18:59:59

Yes please! Might stop DH being so grumpy in the morning...

Shallishanti Wed 09-Jan-13 19:39:21

you have read, haven't you, that it can be enjoyed as PART of a nutritious breakfast?
in other words you need to add some proper food in order to get a proper breakfast?
you may as well stay at home 5 mins longer and have a bit of toast! Have bisuits for breakfast if you want, but no need to pay all that and kid yourself you have eaten properly!

I'd love to - need to leave home early with 3 children inc 2 teenagers who just won't eat breakfast because it means less time in bed! Sounds like a great get going quickly idea to me. I already get up at 6 so there's no wriggle room in the mornings!

busymummy3 Wed 09-Jan-13 23:00:59

Yes would love to also have a teenage DD who loves any type of cereal biscuit those beginning with B

I generally don't feel like I want to eat anything in the first hour after getting up, so if there was something that I actually liked (but could kid myself it wasn't a biscuit) that was easy to eat on the train that would be great.
