Frubes have partnered with one of the most hotly anticipated films of the summer: Minions!
To celebrate the partnership, there’s a new limited edition Frubes flavour on the block. Can you guess? Yes, of course, it’s banana flavour. They’re available in all leading supermarkets in packs of nine with an RRP of £2, while stocks last.
The special Minion packs – in strawberry, banana or red berries flavour – are easy to spot, with Minions peeping out from the box. There’s also an on pack promotion – just cut out the Minion Vision Goggles on the packs and use them to reveal a secret code. Hop on line and you could win prizes! The goggles also reveal jokes on the tubes, so there’s good fun to be had with every box.
Frubes also sent us to see the movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a teaser.
If you love the Despicable Me films, you’ll already be familiar with the little yellow creatures and their comical antics. But unlike the Despicable Me franchise, Minions focusses less on the super villains and more on the millions of years of slapstick adventures the Minions had before meeting Gru, culminating with a stint working for Scarlett Overkill, a villainess who turns out to be a little too evil, even for our banana-loving friends.
JD (7) enjoyed the film throughout, and Miss J (3) enjoyed moments although found it hard to sit through all 90 minutes.
There are lots of comedy moments, while an increasingly perilous plot line delivers almost continuous excitement in the last 30 minutes.
Is it just dumb slapstick? No. While the Minions themselves are not the brightest of creatures, the film is as wittily scripted in places as the rest of the franchise, so has appeal for children and adults alike. Sandra Bullock is excellent at Scarlett Overkill and delivers her role as seductive villain with aplomb.
Have you seen Minions? Let me know what you thoughts.
And if you haven’t tried Frubes before, now is the time! Our kids love the little tubes of yoghurt, and they’re a great source of Vitamin D and Calcium to help build strong bones. They also have no added colours or artificial sweeteners, are suitable for vegetarians, and keep for up to 8 hours out of the fridge so they’re perfect for packed lunches.
Frubes sent us vouchers to try Frubes and attend the cinema with snacks. They also took us on an overnight stay at Whipsnade Zoo – come back soon to find out more tommorrow!
