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

I'm done. Would be interested to see if they're good value for money. They do seem a bit pricey for breakfast bars.

Apple and berry ones sound lovely.

I've only tried the nutrigrain ones and they were ok but a bit 'meh'.

NinjaChipmunk Thu 10-Jan-13 11:48:25

done! I so want to try these as I never have time for breakfast at breakfast time.

Yes please, would love to try them.

catwithflowers Thu 10-Jan-13 19:15:44

Yes please. Not for me (prefer toast and tea!) but for my 15 year old daughter who can't face breakfast and eats nothing until school lunch which is worrying. She has a sweet tooth so maybe could eat one of these on the bus.

Would love to test the biscuits, often use them for many reasons.
Hope McV's have some nice new flavours to test.
Need some luck
