wilko easter 2017 half price pic n mix - Large Cup now £1.95

36
Found 7th Apr 2017
its time once again that we beat the crowds to get to wilko and stock up on sweet stuff.

the cup witch is the best value is the extra large cup which is priced at £1.95 at the moment because with that sized cup it would be easily possible to cram more then £4 woth of sweets in and thats how much it would usually cost. my persional best is getting around 900g at once and by doing the maths

it would usually cost £8.10 for 900g in a weighed bag(( please comment if i'm wrong) and cramming that amount in an extra large cup which is £1.95 at the moment that would be a saving of £7.15 so its a no brainier

here's a 2 tips, tip one is to put the gummy stuff at the bottom so its like a spongy layer if you wish to push the sweets downwards to get more if and tip two is fill in any small remaining spaces with there own version smarties and those chocolate covered toffees

THAT'S ALL FOLKS!!

Great tips
When does this start please?
Sounds like good tips from candy expert. Hot!
I have a lot of respect for how seriously you take this! 900g is a cracking effort
900g is impressive. I got 500g in The Range pick and mix cup so I accept this challenge... lol

Arf! Sort of like a low rent version of the coffees in Waitrose..
Another tip on cramming as much as you can in a large cup is to slot down the sides the flat sweets like the smiley faces or strawberries!
I spend a good 10 minutes cramming them all in gotta get your money's worth haha!
To maximise my sweet fill I sacrifice another cup until I get half way and then I fist it until it's full

Get your point! But we don't know what goes on on in the food industry, kitchens in restaurants etc.!
I've given this much thought over the years and believe I have mastered THE perfect technique. Build up in layers. With each layer, spoon small items in such as chocolate raisins etc and shake the carton so that they fall into the gaps...press and repeat until the lid can barely stay on. The finishing touch is to apply your own elastic band to ensure the lid stay on what should be a very swollen cup!!

Must admit I hadn't considered fisting in Wilkos

it's a saving of £6.15, not £7.15. Good deal though. Tesco are doing two cups for £4, this beats that
Oh my word, this post has really made me laugh!! Love the tips, I've read them to the kids & we also accept the challenge!! Minus the fisting though
Not on in Basingstoke
Priceless. Thought as a Yorkshireman I went to lengths to pack as much in as I could but I'm beaten on this. My best is 800g!
Another good tip ...wen ur as full as u can be ..put ur full cup on the floor..make a fist and push down as hard but careful as u can ..gives u anoth good 2 inches
Thanks I got mine today to 905g was shocked at the weight but will keep three adults happy for a good while

i got 920g
Here's another tip. When you get the empty cup put your hand in all the way to the bottom and push slowly. It will turn the paper at the bottom of the cup inside out and make the bottom of the cup flush to the rest of it giving you extra room for more delicious sweeties. just don't get too rough as sweets will fly everywhere lol
When does the offer end ?!
