    DEFINITELY TAKE THEM OUT OF THE TUBE !!!!!

    ... unless this is a "snackie" grub-up after several pints down the pub ...

    .. IF it's a "high brow affair" ....

    ... especially if your guests are not very very close friends that don't mind "slumming it"

    ... or you really need to impress ....

    ... your job/promotion/contract renewal depends on it ... etc

    You never know what you might find in there ....

    ... you hear such stories of mice in loaves of bread etc ..............

    Of course IF you are returning from the pub after 17 pints of lager .....

    .. then I can guess what sort of people your guests really are ....

    .. in which case there is ONLY one way in which they CAN BE SERVED :)

    In a dish!

    (Sounds like this blog was maybe to settle a dispute that took place between Mr & Mrs MSE just before guests arrived......?) :D

    It depends on how long you are leaving them out, they tend to go soft if left out for too long - better in the tube - like smarties :)

    Simple: Five steps.
    1) Open tube before guests come.
    2) Eat top one or two to check they are fresh.
    3) Not sure, so try a few more.
    4) Finish off tube.
    5) Hide any other tubes or guests might eat them.

    Always tube! My hand can get to the bottom of tube but my OH's can't. If I served them in a bowl, OH would finish them in no time!

    Put one pack into a bowl for your guests. Make the other two packs salt and vinegar and post them to me, thus saving you any future dilemma and making a (supposedly dieting) moneysaver very happy! :D

    Bowl every time - guests or no guests. I'm still mourning the death of the short-lived mini pringles :sad:.
    A minute at the till, a lifetime on the bill.

    Nothing tastes as good as being slim feels.

    one life, live it!
