Biscuit Tin - Giveaway #24

Now what could be more delightful than to receive a tin full of homemade biscuits on Mother's Day? Well, perhaps receiving the biscuits in this particular tin. The appearance and wording made me laugh as soon as I saw it: FOOD in case of emergency, take a break. Strongly reminiscent of those fire alarm fixtures, hunger can be quite a serious matter in itself. This tin is perfect for accompanying us down to the plot, where all breaks are very well earned indeed, especially at this time of the year when there is a lot of hard graft to be done. With its red and black warning colouration, it will be hard to loose in the undergrowth and when an emergency occurs and blood sugar levels plummet, it will be easy to find. It is also just about the right size to carry a couple of sandwiches and maybe some cake to accompany us on moorland and coastal walks, once again emergencies have been known to happen in these situations. Relying on a mobile phone will do no good. Weighing in at 256g, it's nice and light and measuring 20 x 8 x 15.5 cm, it has plenty of capacity.

I was sent a Take a Break Emergency Food Tin to try out by Mustard who sell all sorts of fun but useful items online. I immediately filled it with these chocolate Garibaldi biscuits and we trooped off down the plot. That was one emergency averted - phew!
