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 have received mine - but

Instead of three packs, one of each flavour, I've got eight packs of the red berries one confused

McNo Wed 23-Jan-13 11:58:09

Me too - 8 boxes of red berries - looking forward to testing though smile

MrsHelsBels74 Wed 23-Jan-13 12:26:45

Me 3, a whole box of red berries. Is it wrong I want to dive right in & try them now?

smilingthroughgrittedteeth Wed 23-Jan-13 12:43:27

MNHQ I didnt recieve an email but have just recieved a box of biscuits, I havent been recieving surveys lately either confused

Have also only got red berry flavour

Skivvytomany Wed 23-Jan-13 12:54:12

I've got a whole box of red berry biscuits too. I've had a couple of biscuits and I really like them. Wish it had been a mixed box so I old try he other flavours though.

mindingalongtime Wed 23-Jan-13 14:08:59

I'm glad I didn't get any, the puerile ads onTV are driving me mad every morning, though my minded children would have probably eaten them for me.

ControlGeek Wed 23-Jan-13 15:27:56

Same here, a whole box of the red berries ones. My poor DP just looked at me when I got home, as if to say 'What have you been buying now ???'

EauRouge Wed 23-Jan-13 15:41:01

I was just going to post on here that you'd accidentally sent me all of the biscuits for the trial but it looks like I'm not alone! 8 boxes of red berry flavour and not complaining one bit grin

TheOtherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 23-Jan-13 15:52:04

Hi all - just posting for AnnMumsnet who's crying in a corner cos she didn't get a box of red berry biscuits...sad

She'll get in touch with McVitie's and report back as soon as she can

smilingthroughgrittedteeth Wed 23-Jan-13 20:17:31

Does that mean we all get a whole box of the other flavours too grin

Indith Wed 23-Jan-13 20:19:17

I too got a massive box of red berry biscuits today.

I've tried them already and I'm afraid I thought they were pretty horrible. Dry and generally not very nice.

That's for the feedback thread though.
