Thanks to levlani for the photo.

Contents of packaging
I wasn't sent them in the packaging, so if anyone wants to donate a photo they're welcome. I did get some wet wipes though, and apparently some people have got candy!

The cup, with a 10p coin for scale
I've used the larger one here, as they only recommend the smaller one for teens.
