B was very excited that we got invited to the Toffee Crisp cereal Bzz campaign. He loves getting to write reviews, and thought it was fab that he got to try some yummy cereal this time!
We were asked to try the new Toffee Crisp cereal, and share our thoughts. This arrived in a pack, and we also received a pen, notepad and some money off vouchers to be redeemed against our future purchases. This is a picture of was what we received:
Try sweetening up the start of your day with a bowlful of Nestlé Toffee Crisp cereal! Based on the delicious taste of the nation’s much-loved Toffee Crisp chocolate bar, we think you’ll find it irresistible. Toffee Crisp cereal is made with delicious crispy, crunchy toffee and chocolate cereal pieces. Just add milk and get stuck in!'
It looked good. Toffee Crisp cereal looks a bit like this in the bowl (before milk!):
B is a huge fan of sugary cereal, and he pretty much ate the whole box!
As B was the main tester for this, I will let him tell you all about it. This is what he said: 'I like the part where it is called Toffee Crisp because it says on the box that it is a 'toffee and chocolate cereal' and it really is what they say because it has toffee balls and chocolate cereal. The toffee balls aren't too sweet, and the chocolate isn't too sickly, they combine together very well to create a lovely cereal. I know this cereal would not be healthy to have every day, nut I have enjoyed having it as a little treat. I would like to have this cereal again. It was yummy!'
M said: 'it is too sweet and I don't really like chocolatey cereal' so it was a thumbs down from her, unfortunately. Bronte had a bowl but although she said she liked it, she left some of it. I had a couple of spoonfuls and it was very sweet. I have no idea how B managed to eat a huge bowl! Sadly, it certainly wasn't for me, either.
The 330g box recommended that this would give 11 servings, however B liked the cereal so much, and his portion sizes were so much bigger that it didn't last half this. Unless it is on offer, at £2.49 a box I think this will end up being a very rare treat. It is just too expensive - especially with only one child liking it, and liking the amount of cereal per portion that he did!
