It all started with Belvita, and one by one, they’ve been joined by a growing range of breakfast biscuits from the competition.
Now famous biscuit makers, McVitie’s, are getting in on the act with their own version of breakfast biscuit. These are called Breakfast Porridge Oats and they’re available in three varieties: Oat & Honey, Red Berries and Apple, Sultana & Cinnamon. Each biscuit has 57 calories.
It seemed inevitable that McVitie’s would enter the breakfast biscuit market. They certainly have the expertise and experience, which dates right back to 1809 with apprentice baker, Robert McVitie.

These biscuits are following in a similar vein to the others, with each box holding six individual packs of four biscuits (6 x 50g). They’re fortified with vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 as well as iron and are designed especially for breakfast.
