Jigsaw man says crackers are broken in factory not in transit

GLEN Hunter, 70, of Papakura, Auckland, New Zealand, did not misread the directions on his box of Snax crackers and mistake it for a jigsaw. For an hour and a half, Mr Hunter attempted to piece together the broken biscuits. He wanted to see if they were broken in the box or at the factory:

“I painstakingly have tried to match up the broken pieces without any success. I say they are being broken in the factory and being packaged like that.”

Not so says the maker of Snax:

Griffin’s does not intentionally pack broken crackers. Snax crackers are susceptible to breakage during packaging and transportation, and work is currently being carried out to reduce the incidence of breakage that consumers are experiencing.”

The New Zealand Herald’s story ends:

But Hunter now spreads his pate on Chinese-made crackers, which he says are seldom broken.

He spreads his pate on crackers? (He has  ahead for biscuits.) As for the Chinese cracker, well, what those slivers of rock and cat tooth lack in crumbliness they make up for in longevity…
