    Definitely not just you. I managed to scatter most of a shake round the kitchen earlier trying to open it :( Scissors sounds a better plan

    Never had a problem, I just tear at the small cut out bit and they open....or perhaps I have super strength :)

    Yep me too - my chocolate shakes (from the infamous batch!) came without the little cutouts, so need scissors for them.

    I can open the others with sheer manly strength, however.... :D

    Yes I hear you all, I tried to flex my pecs MrMojo but nowt happened so I had to resort to my scissors. I manage to scatter my breakfast all in the car (the car's nay 4 months old and now it smells of a combo of strawberry and banana packs. Also, it looks like I have a nasty dependent drug problem.

    I am trying to find a pair of scissors that can fit nicely into my bag, without looking suspicious...any ideas????

    What is really bugging is when they use your special 'packet opening Scissors' to cut their bacon sandwich in two!
