Warbuton's Crumpets vs McVitie's Chocolate Hobnobs

This is not about the products per se , both of which I enjoy , well I prefer the Chocolate Hobnobs. Basically my grip in this world in which the customer needs to be protected from every possible instance of contamination by person or persons unknown.

What it is, is both products come in a cellophane wrapping which the purchaser must open to get at the product. The McVitie's wrapping is easy to open , no problem whatsoever. The Warbuton's wrapping requires industrial cutting tools to get into. If you try using yor bare hands you don't stand a chance and will end up destroying the crumpets inside , reducing them to untoastable crumbs as you get more and more annoyed at the fact you can't actually open the damned packet.

If you are going to buy a product and see that the packaging is damaged , put it back and get another one. Too many products are almost impossible to get into without some cutting implement , which in itself is dangerous. Imagine turning up at casualty - "I stabbed myself trying to open a packet of crumpets then burnt my hand when I got its stuck in the toaster"!
