Weetabix packaging!

By Rob

Well just look at it! It's the most complex way to get food out of packaging I have ever known. Added to the fact that you're usually carrying out this infuriatingly difficult task in a bleary eyed state at the crack of dawn. And when you do get a couple out to eat, your kitchen looks like your Dad's been sanding a piece of wood all over it. How would I do it better? Have it so the box opens up like a cupcake/chocolates box and have the little fellas all lined up so you can just grab one, whack it in a bowl and eat it. Minimum fuss, no mess, no angry morning Weetabix throwing. Job done!

    It’s a shame Weetabix don’t talk with Shredded Wheat as their packaging is so much easier, plus freshness is retained.

    Sorry but I don’t get the issue with the current Weetabix packaging, I seldom eat Weetabix anyway, but whenIdo want to get one or more out of the packaging I don’t have a problem. My way of doing it is to sort of hold onto the one underneath the one I want to get out, then sort of push or squeeze the packaging around there to push up the one I want via the small gap between the one I want and the one below it. Rarely fails me if I do it that way.

    Great idea!! Makes even more mess if your child id at that, “I can do it myself!” stage!!! Would save me a lot of mess and stress at brekkie time!

    Simple solution – Use your bread/carving knife to ” feel ” between the number of weetabix you require and slice through the paper .

    Brilliant – just BRILLIANT!

    Rob you are a genius, Ella this would only work once! When opened the plastic packet has no tension and when you try to cut it the weetabix fall out and crumble everywhere.

    totally agree,messiest things ever.must be the cheapest way.
    lets face it,its all about money.

    I thought about this myself the other day!
    I can see where you’re coming from with the alternative packaging design, but surely they would still require a plastic wrapper of sorts to keep them dry/fresh?

    A knife to open a packet of Weetabix…..hmmmm……my son uses an axesaw blade and a mini-vac to hoover up the debris. I do worry sometimes because he’s only six, times are a changing?!

    I am an avid weetabixer fan (I eat four weetabixes every morning) and this problem haunts me on a daily basis. I have everything else down to a tee (including the exact amount of milk to use so it doesn’t get too soggy) But no matter how careful you are, you can’t help but spill crumbs all over the place. To put it frankly it’s an outrage that such a delicious kingpin cereal had such a disastrous problem this should have been sorted years ago. GET IT FIXED!!!

    I once bought a pack of weetabix and the packaging around the weetabix was a thick paper material which was much easier to open and there was much less mess! But I have never come across one like that again:(

    Just have a bacon sandwich instead lol

  14. dom says:

    This has been now implemented by weetabix :)

  15. Bundy says:

    Made me chuckle. Good entertaining but very short post/idea.

  16. Sharyn says:

    I would like to say that the packaging now that is on the weetabix is so much better.Thank you.
