I was sent the three varieties of the newly launched Walkers Bugles to have a little bit of fun. The crunchy cone shape is a novelty and makes snack time interesting… it gives you lots of scope to do something different.
We already buy these regularly; I have a penchant for the Southern Style BBQ – so very tasty! But I was more than happy to sample Cheese and Sour Cream and Black Pepper too. Regular crisps are a bit boring now we have Bugles in our lives.
We decided to improvise and have little Bugles ice creams, using cream cheese and a cucumber flake! Perhaps if I eat enough Bugle ice cream cones the sun will decide to grace us with its presence.
Eldest who is nine really adored these. Apparently they are lush and he could eat them forever! A much more positive reaction as he usually grumbles over my limited uninspiring snack time choices.
The summer holidays are LONG and the endless complaints exhausting, so for him to be happy about a mini Bugle cone was all good in my book. Seriously packs can be brought quite cheaply and you have instant entertainment for your older children (or the grown ups, especially the ones you have over for wine nights to anaesthetize the pain of parenting!). Clawed hands, dinosaur shapes, using them as playing pieces for games, Bugles aren’t your average snack – they are so much MORE! After you have been amused you can chomp down on the cone and enjoy the delicious taste.
After he had his fill of cones a la cream cheese he played a stacking game with the remainder of the pack. He managed to get to six, so you will have to see if you can do better. We can get quite competitive here at times so it will give us something to aim for if you beat it.
Now head off to your nearest supermarket and get your own pack of Bugles (the sharing bags we were sent retail at £1.99) and most importantly get creative and enjoy yourselves.
