Today I've got a fun food video to share with you, sharing a game we created using edible traffic cones. I'm really quite excited about this one because we had so much fun putting it together! We were challenged to come up with a fun game or snack idea using the new Bugles crisps from Walkers, so we decided to do both - a game that is also a fun snack. This was such a hit with my boys!
Crisps are not an every day food in our house, we tend to have them as an occasional treat, so when we do have them we want to make sure we enjoy them. We love trying out new products and flavours especially if they come in a fun shapes, and as soon as I saw Walkers Bugles I instantly saw the potential for endless fun and games with them.
Walkers Bugles are new to the UK, a fun cone shaped corn snack which come in three tasty flavours; Cheese, Southern Style BBQ and Sour Cream & Black Pepper. We enjoyed tasting all of the flavours but the BBQ flavour came out top for me, they are so moreish! The Bugles come in a 110g bag which is great for sharing with family and friends. It's a way off yet, but I'll definitely be getting some in for Halloween later this year - you can pop them on the end of your fingers for perfect witches fingernails!
Check out what we did with them in our video below. If the video doesn't load for any reason you can also click here to watch it on YouTube, and don't forget to follow the Eats Amazing YouTube channel while you're there for lots more fun food ideas and recipes! You'll also find my instructions further down the post.
Edible Traffic Cones
Ingredients (makes 9):
- 2 slices cheddar cheese
- 9 Southern Style BBQ Walkers Bugles
Layer the two cheese slices together to make one extra thick slice. With a small sharp knife, cut the cheese into 9 squares.
Pop the Walkers Bugles on top of the cheese squares to make traffic cones.
To play our game:
Arrange the edible cones on a chopping board or other clean flat surface with space in between them to form an obstacle course. Take it in turns to push a small toy car around the course, trying not to knock the cones over as you go.
The first person to get their car around the whole course without knocking over any cones gets to eat the Bugles!
For extra fun, place bugles on your finger tips and have a thumb wrestle to decide who gets to go first.
