Belvita Breakfast Biscuits More Varieties

Belvita Breakfast biscuits by Nabisco, are made with wholegrain cereals and milk with added vitamins. The five wholegrains used in Belvita Biscuits are: oats, wheat, spelt, barley and rye.


As their name implies, these delicious crunchy biscuits are designed to be eaten for breakfast. So if you ever felt guilty eating biscuits in the morning, here's the perfect excuse. 

Initially, there were four varieties to choose from: Milk & Cereal, Crunchy Oats, Fruit & Fibre and Honey & Nut (with choc chips).



These are shown in an earlier post.


Then along came Belvita Yogurt Crunch with its creamy, live yogurt filling. This has obviously proved popular because now there’s a new addition called Belvita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch Honey & Live Yogurt.

If you like the taste of honey, this is the flavour to go for. Two crunchy wholegrain Belvita Biscuits are sandwiched together by a gorgeous mixture of tangy, honey flavoured live yogurt.

The ‘yogurt’ centre found in the Yogurt Crunch varieties has the same sort of texture as other cream filled biscuits, but it definitely has more of a yogurt flavour.

Like the Yogurt Crunch, you get two biscuits in each pack and they have 115 calories each. So one pack of two biscuits contains 230 calories.

Also new to the range are Belvita Muesli and Belvita Forest Fruits. These, like the other breakfast biscuits are wrapped in packs of four.

The Forest Fruits variety have a lovely sweet berry flavour throughout the whole biscuit which you can smell as soon as the packet is opened. Each of these is worth 58 calories.
Belvita Forest Fruits





The Muesli biscuits are crumbly and oaty with a distinctive orange taste. Each of these has 58 calories.

  1. I've tried these biscuits and although they really are yummy, I prefer them as a snack rather than breakfast as on their own they're not a balanced meal! - as it explains on the label... !

    Following your fab site! I started blogging a few weeks ago and so far so good!

    1. Thanks for your comments Nic. I tend to nibble on these instead of regular biscuits when I feel like a biscuit snack - hoping the extra vitamins will do some good even if the sugar content won't!

      I've added your blog to my list. It's very engaging and right up my street.
