Weetabix Weetos Chocolate Cereal Bar – 99 calories

This cereal bar is likely to appeal if you enjoy eating snack bars based on a breakfast cereal. There are quite a few of them about such as Kellogg’s Rice Krispie bars and the various Special K bars. Here’s one from Weetabix which is based on the Weetos chocolate breakfast cereal.


Weetos bars are packed with delicious chocolatey wheat hoops to create a soft and chewy bar, with an indulgent thick layer of chocolate on the bottom.’ 

Each bar has, according to the front of the pack, 99 calories. BUT, if you take a look at the nutrition information on the back, you'll find they've only got 88 calories!


Weetos bars are available in boxes of 5 x 20g, individually wrapped packs from larger supermarkets and also in Poundland.

As they’re described, they do have a thick layer of chocolate on the bottom, while the main part is made up from crunchy, chocolate wheat O’s. The bar itself is quite sticky and chewy and very sweet with just over 8 grams (less than 2 teaspoons) of sugar per bar.

These are quite a substantial snack bar for less than 100 calories and one which both adults and kids can enjoy. Not exactly ‘healthy’ but, as it says on the box ‘the perfect on-the-go treat!’

Nutrition Information per 20g bar: 88 calories, 1.2g protein, 14.2g carbohydrate, 8.2g sugars, 2.9g fat, 1.3g saturates, 0.3g fibre, 0.05g salt.
