Hi, everyone! It's beano150 here... and have I got a scoop for you!
On Sunday the 5th of July 2015, I went to my local Tesco Express to get some shopping. When I went to the cheese fridge, the Bin Weevils logo caught my eye. Take a look!:
Doesn't that look awesome? Well, if you think that's it... just a Bin Weevils branded Cheestrings pack... that's NOT it at all. Nope, there's more! Take a look INSIDE the packet:
Inside the packet you get the usual yummy Cheestrings, but you also get an exclusive Brave Bones Club Bin Weevils Collectors Card! You can just about see it in the picture above, hiding between my 4 Cheestrings. There are 6 fun cards to collect.
This picture isn't the best quality, so I apologise for that. I only took a picture of the left half of the back packet, as the other right half has no Bin Weevils branded images or text on. This section basically tells you how to use the card in 3 ways. You can wet them, heat them, or place them in a dark room and watch them glow. The terms and conditions are there, also. The t&c's points out to go to www.binweevils.com/bravebonesclub and enter the code from the free Bin Weevils card inside the packet. I assume from there you can play the game and redeem your virtual reward which comes free with the Bin Weevils branded packet.
Please note, the promotion is not due to start until the 13th of July 2015, so if you find the link (www.binweevils.com/bravebonesclub) redirects you to the Bin Weevils homepage, don't worry.
Finally, let's take a close-up look at the front of the pack.
As we can see, the Bin Weevils logo is featured alongside Clott at the top of the packet. The word "FREE" in big capital letters is to advertise the "Magic Reveal Card" that you can wet, heat, or glow in the dark (above). Then if we move down the packet, Scribbles is reporting the latest Bin News in his notepad and Tink is waving. With a big grin on the characters, the Bin Weevils Cheestrings are definitely a must-have for any Bin Weevils fan.
All in all, I give the design a 10/10. I'm not reviewing the card or online "promotion" yet, as I haven't opened the card. I am saving that for the event coming on Monday 13th of July 2015.
I will try to get another review similar to this one when the online feature goes active next week.
I believe "Yollies", the fruit yoghurt lolly also has this promotion on them, but I haven't seen a Bin Weevils version of those in shops yet.
Bin Weevils Cheestrings 4x 20g packs are available for just £1 at Tesco until Tuesday 21st July 2015, so stock up now!
