1 x sausage roll or pasty (normally still frozen). Or the evil, heretical Creamy Vegetable Lattice which even the veggies don't eat.

1 x packet of Cheap Flavourless Crisps (manufacturer no-ones heard of)

1 x roll/sandwich (flavours consist mainly of Mystery Fish, sometimes a slice of plastic cheese with a dollop of coleslaw or, in the extremely rare and lucky occasion... HAM! NORMAL HAM! never had one myself but rumours spread...)

1 x kit kat or, more recently, mar bar.

1 x bruised apple or sour orange

1 x bottle of water

50/50 chance of getting a pot of yoghurt. No spoon supplied.
