We have been asked by one of our many salubrious PR friends, knowing our influence, if we would like to review the two new varieties of BEAR Yo Yos – namely Apple and Pineapple for her ………
…….. which is not only very, very exciting but also a great honour, because the packs she sent us are pre-production, which means we could be among the first people in the world to
nom try them!
We have digested the blurb robustly and though hard to believe, a single Apple or Pineapple BEAR Yo Yo counts as one of your five-a-day, a regime, which as you know, we pride ourselves on following rigorously.
They are made with 100% pure fruit and absolutely nothing else, which means that they are fat free and packed with fibre thus preventing a grumbly gut half way through an intensive rush photocopying and laminating team meeting!
On first impression, if we are honest, they do look like something Ant and Dec would give you in a bush tucker trial …. ……. but they really are nomtastic; the flavours are so “full on” and you can really tell that nothing extra has been added.
My favourite flavour of choice was the apple, which I liked to unwind slowly, tearing off little pieces to nibble at my leisure in a gentile manner
….. however both Darrell and Nigel liked to unwind their Yo Yos fully and then suck them up like a piece of spaghetti, rather uncouth, but then, what are they both like?!!!! Nigel very much appreciated the exotic-ness of the pineapple flavour, while Darrell waxed lyrical about the strawberry flavour bringing to mind hot summers days (without the cream naturally)
In each pack there is also a free nature fact card which we gave Nigel to collect and help with his education …..
….. he now knows that to escape the grip of a crocodiles jaws he needs to push his thumbs into its eyeballs, thus releasing himself instantly, not an every day occurrence in Wolverhampton admittedly, but forewarned is forearmed! (unless the said crocodile has bitten off your arms already!!)
Nigel has also shown an
unhealthy obsessional interest in the Yo Yos packaging which appears to show a bear attired only in what seems to be a fig leaf …..
Oh Olivia …… what have you started? Nigel now wants to forgo wearing his pants …… and assume an on trend, carefully positioned piece of foliage to accommodate and cover his accouterments ……….he says that it will make his “bits” feel “100% natural” ….. good grief, saints alive and heaven help us!!!
