However, Kellogg's Special K is far too tasty to be eaten just by dieters. Children and adults of all ages have also discovered the unique taste of Special K which can be eaten as a snack at any time of day, not only breakfast.
There's even more to enjoy now because there are so many varieties to choose from. This is also great news for those following the Special K Challenge or the Special K Cereal Diet.
Special K is quite similar in calories when compared with other wheat or rice based cereals. However, it is fortified with a wide range of important vitamins and iron, so the dieter isn’t losing out on valuable nutrients while cutting calories.
Here’s a look at some of the family of Special K cereals and snack bars available in the UK right now:
