MNers needed to be part of a special panel for Flora - prizes to be won for participating NOW CLOSED

You may have seen that we've been working with Flora over the last few months, and now we’re recruiting more MNers to join the Flora panel.

We're specifically looking for UK Mumsnetters who are able to take part in a few activities over the next year. This year, the activities will include product tests, surveys and an event day, amongst other things. We've learnt from the previous panel activities and this project will be managed closely by the insight team here at MNHQ.

If you are selected for the panel you will be emailed a link to each activity, and each time there will be a prize draw incentive for one lucky winner. You won't need to or necessarily be asked to take part in every activity but each panel member will be asked to do at least one activity.

This panel is open to all UK MNers with at least one child living at home. It doesn't matter if you currently buy Flora or not - we want the opinions of all!

If you'd like to be on the panel, please sign up here.

We'll be in touch with those selected soon.

Thanks and good luck,

Have to agree with others. I'm not too keen. Don't like the colour, too pale, reminds me of Vitalite. It spreads very easily but is quite shiney and greasy looking. It doesn't taste or smell like butter. Sorry Flora.

I am yet to receive mine

threepiecesuite Wed 04-Jun-14 13:54:20

Mine came today. Packaging seems wasteful, why not a voucher?
Will report back.

Sorry, autocorrect. *regular Flora.

snowymum12 Wed 04-Jun-14 10:06:09

Mine arrived this morning. Thank you. It tastes pretty similar to retail Flora, which isn't unpleasant but not as buttery as I was expecting.

Thank you Usma01 smile

Here's the link to the feedback survey.

I got my Flora last week and have been trying it but having searched my emails, can't find a survey/feedback thread link - have I missed it or has it not been sent yet?

I finally got my spread today. We haven't tried it yet, but the large polystyrene box that the tiny tub of spread came in made a lovely treasure chest (5-year old DS1 was at home today as school was being used as a polling station, and we were looking for a craft project, the box was perfect ) grin

I have been selected for this panel, done surveys but not received anything.
Not really sure what is happening or what I am supposed to do?

The survey said that it wasnt available in the shops but it clearly is so I dont understand that bit.

Floralnomad Wed 21-May-14 20:31:56

I got mine ,in the giant box ! I can't say I'm terribly impressed ,if I'm going to use a spread I think I'd rather have the Buttery and unfortunately this tiny tub has arrived on the same week as Tesco gave me a free tub of Kerrygold spreadable ,which is much nicer and the tub was double the size . Incidentally I noticed that Flora Gold is on offer in Tesco at the moment .

Had an attempted delivery last Thursday but couldn't collect until Saturday (tbh didn't realise what the parcel was, as was expecting a number of things) - having been sat around a v hot warehouse and on and off various vans my sample was liquid and unpleasant and went straight into the bin.

chocolateshoes Wed 21-May-14 20:27:17

Mine hasn't arrived either!

supermariossister Wed 21-May-14 20:22:35

still no flora don't think mine is coming

Bogeyface Wed 21-May-14 20:13:55

And yes I realise that I have probably just got myself struck off the list for the draw grin

Bogeyface Wed 21-May-14 20:12:31

Didnt like it.

It is billed as a butter alternative but it isnt. It has that nasty smell that spreads have and doesnt taste any different to other buttery spreads.

I saw it today on offer in Morrisons for £1.50 but full price it is £2.50, butter is nicer and cheaper!

Sorry Flora, fail on that one sad

snowymum12 Tue 20-May-14 06:57:04

Delivery was attempted on a day when I'm not in so it went back to the depot rather than being left with a neighbour. I'm not sure I fancy using it now it's been sat in a warehouse. What a shame Flora asked for delivery info and then didn't take it into account.

supermariossister Mon 19-May-14 19:43:03

me neither Nell

FuckyNell Mon 19-May-14 17:39:50

I've not received mine yet sad

Uzma01 Mon 19-May-14 13:56:46

I got my tub on Friday too, have tried it in several things but will post feedback on the survey link emailed to me.

TheCunkOfPhilomena Sun 18-May-14 21:24:42

I think it tastes okay (maybe a little synthetic but then it is synthetic) but I don't understand the idea of something trying to taste like butter. If you want butter then buy butter confused I don't like the ingredients used in this (palm oil for example) and so would never buy it.

arianah2014 Sun 18-May-14 21:00:04

Received my flora gold today(16/05 good packaging will use empty box to store canned foods.tasted it on croissants has a weak taste more a diet spread what do you lot think testers?

battlefelton Sun 18-May-14 13:03:17

Sorry, I was reading the posts above and it seemed it was for people who received a voucher.

Are we supposed to post a review of it here? I got a link in an email that I've deleted in a clean-my-inbox frenzy.

battlefelton Sun 18-May-14 13:00:56

I received the Flora Gold but can't seem to locate the discussion thread for it.

Is there one?
