A three-year-old boy “broke down in tears” because he couldn’t make a car-shaped snack from his “dud” pack of Golden Wonder Transform-A-Snacks.

Little Milo loves nothing more than munching on beef flavored chips after a long and hard day at kindergarten.

The pack usually includes edible pieces that kids – and some adults – can use to build cars out of crunchy pieces.

But young Milo felt glum when he opened a packet only to find it contained car wheels and no “crisp body panels”.

Golden Wonder has since apologized and said it would send a “goodwill gesture” to young Brummie.

But his grandfather Steve Perrin had none of it and was furious: “When we got home he was completely distraught and heartbroken to find there was just a load of wheel chips inside.

“He loves building the cars and always asks about it – he’s very polite.

“It took me a while to calm him down. I couldn’t go back to the store because it was too far away and it was getting very dark.”

The 48-year-old grandpa continued: “There was probably a mistake at the factory – but I don’t think Milo was able to fully understand the situation.

“The pack says ’50p Great Value’. Not if they upset my grandson, they aren’t.”

Golden Wonder has now addressed this issue by saying, ‘In accordance with our complaints handling procedure, we will write back to the complainant with our reply and apologies for the inconvenience caused and send a goodwill gesture.’

If Milo thought he was a bit unlucky, then this guy who only found a Wotsit in his packet of chips certainly got worse off.

Andy Stubbs, 43, was looking forward to the snack as he shook the bag and noted that despite being inflated with air, it seemed very airy.

The south-east London father couldn’t hear chips clattering against each other and was beginning to suspect he had an unusual bag on his hands.

A pack of Wotsits should contain at least 42 of the Cheesy Puffs and anyone getting less should contact Wotsits Customer Service immediately and make a complaint.
