    Isha: I don't think I've ever bought these myself, but I have come across them in Woolies and they always smell damn delicious. Plus, half price? Screw that salad that costs $13 when I can have chicken chips for $2. That being said, probs not much of a meal and more of a snicky snack vibe. 6/10

    Hameda: I didn't get to experience these until my last couple of months at uni and I can honestly say I'm sad that we didn't have them beforehand! Yes, they kind of tasted like cardboard if you let them get cold, but at that price? No complaints here! 7/10
