Christmas Cracker Mayhem Review

Christmas Cracker Mayhem2

The Jokes


There's nothing like a terrible joke in a party cracker to induce some laughter (or disgust) at the table. We grabbed a sample of joke cards from each cracker set.

As expected, the jokes are about as lame as each other, however the more expensive sets include a little bit more; for the midrange buyers, you will be gifted with a piece of trivia, while the big spenders can cease all conversation at the dinner table to complete a word grid.

From a social perspective, we believe that the standard cracker wins here, while the luxury edition wins from a sophistication point of view.

The Gifts

There's no point in spoiling gift surprises for you, so we decided to show just two samples of each cracker.

From cheapest to most expensive we have two turtle doves, some form of paper clip and a padlock. Meanwhile the second sample offered a clapping musical instrument, a tweaser (which does not work according to the housemate) and a yoyo! What seemed quite clear is that the Tesco Value gifts are targeted heavily towards children, while the other two contain slightly higher quality novelties.

The Party Hat

Unless you're scrooge, you will probably land up placing your party hat on your head. Unsurprisingly, you will find that the more expensive crackers sport higher strength hats; ideal for those with large/odd shaped heads.

Let's conclude.

I had to go on youtube to get the low down on Christmas Crackers, I have never heard of seen those before, must be very uncommon stateside. Looks like the little ones get a big kick out of it.

Wonder why they do not market those here, a lot of money to be made.Quote
