Rustlers Burger Hack Challenge

Scrummies Review and Giveaway

Scrummies are a delicious and healthy snack aimed at children. Yummy, scrummy fruit in perfect snacking packaging we received a lovely box of samples to try. In the midst of December indulgences they couldn’t have been better timed, or more gratefully received. We also had some Clearly Scrumptious adult snacks too, but L wasn’t fussed by that distinction and claimed everything for himself.
