Mu Patz Review

We were invited to add a slice of fun to mealtimes with new MU Patz! 
They are round cheese slices they remind me in appearance of the round discs you get on fancy pizzas in restaurants.

This was not a hard task this week, as I am a fan of Mu especially the Mature lighter Cheese, while I was losing weight it got me through my cheese craving moments. You can read more here

 Mu Patz, love the name, it actually makes you giggle at the connotation of cow pats are made with children in mind to make preparing food fun and making their own meals. They are perfect if your little ones want to get involved in the kitchen or just  fancy a delicious snack. Ideal for decorating pizzas and sandwiches, placing over hot pasta or topping mini jackets potatoes. 

MU Patz are a good source of  calcium and protein, 20g of MU cheese is the equivalent to one glass of milk. And what’s more,  they’re completely natural ,100% MU medium cheddar, with no artificial nasties and very tasty on top of a cracker for the Mums! 

SPECIAL OFFER: All packs of MU Cheddar will be available in Tesco for £2.00 until 22nd
August and MU Patz will be available in Tesco from 6th August at the introductory price of £1.00 

Also new to the range are MU Sticks – the perfect little treat to pop into kids’ lunchboxes, or even stash in the fridge as a delicious and healthy snack.

MU Sticks are individually wrapped, making them ideal for lunchboxes, picnics and everyday
snacks. And because MU loves to entertain, each stick carries an aMUsing fact on the
wrapper. For instance, did you know the oldest cow to date was Big Bertha who lived to the
ripe old age of 48!

Whether you’re looking to chase away rainy days or find activities to fill the time, get the kids 
together in the kitchen and have a go at these delicious and fun to make recipes:
