ED Miliband has confirmed his shopping bill is only £80 a week because he just eats Wagon Wheels.
The Labour leader stressed that his wife and children have a normal, balanced diet, but he has eaten nothing but the large chocolate-covered marshmallow biscuits since 1987.
He added: “This keeps the weekly shopping bill down as I can get by quite happily on about £14 worth of Wagon Wheels. It’s a pound for a pack of six and I go through two packs a day.
“I have three with some milk in the morning, because breakfast is important. Then I put the other nine Wagon Wheels in a plastic shopping bag which I carry around all day so I can just help myself whenever I want. It’s good.”
Miliband said: “It’s a lovely biscuit and they are very big – much bigger than Penguins – which means I don’t waste valuable leadership time opening lots of wrappers. But mostly I just love the name. Wagon Wheels.
“My brother stole my cowboy hat when I was nine.”
