Varieties which have been available for some time include Alpen Light Double Chocolate, Sultana & Apple, Summer Fruits and Chocolate & Fudge bars.
Now there are two new two new additions: Cherry Bakewell and Lemon Drizzle with Yogurt. Like the others, they all have 70 calories or less.
Since I’m not crazy about cherry flavoured products, I decided to see what the lemon bars were like.
Inside the box there are 5 individually wrapped 19g bars. They’re made with 37% mixed cereals comprising rice, whole oats and whole wheat.

The lemon drizzle bars are described as:
'Delicious wholegrain flakes, cherries, almonds and nutritious oats, topped to perfection with a delicate yogurt drizzle, Alpen Light bars are a great snack to enjoy anytime of the day.'
Unwrapping it reveals a pale golden bar which looks a bit like Rice Krispies stuck together. There’s a thin squiggle of white yogurt drizzled along the top. Picking it up, it’s as light as a feather and quite sticky.

I only planned to eat half the bar, but it was so delicious I couldn’t help finishing it off in one go. The lemon flavour is sweet and tangy, almost refreshing. There are small pieces of dried apple, which don’t taste of apple but seem to have absorbed the lemon flavour.
