Kellogg’s Special K have introduced several varieties to their breakfast cereal range over recent years. The latest to hit the shelves is Special K Hazelnut & Almond, a ‘Special Edition’. The new variety is a combination of Special K flakes with sliced almonds and hazelnut clusters.
The flakes are crunchy and very sweet so there's no need to add sugar or sweetener. They're even nice to munch on straight out of the box.
The hazelnut clusters are roughly the same size as a hazelnut and are delicious with a light and crispy texture. The almonds too, are fresh and crunchy. That's if you can find them! It wasn't until pouring the third bowl before a slice finally emerged. Perhaps this pack was a one off.
The box only holds 300g, but according to the label, there should be enough for 10 bowls of 30g servings. One serving with 125ml semi-skimmed milk provides 178 calories. Special K Hazelnut & Almond has slightly more calories per 100g than the other varieties so, if you’re watching your weight, take care to weigh out a 30g portion the first time you pour it out.
Special K Hazelnut & Almond is available in Tesco.
