With a name such as 'Count Down' it seemed likely they might be aimed at the calorie conscious market. And they were. Taking a glance at the nutrition label, it turned out each bar has 90 calories. Since that's under my 100 calorie snack limit, I picked up a pack, paid my £1 and took them home… along with all the other 'stuff' I didn't plan on buying.
Oats & Cranberries, Oats & Chocolate and Oats & Honey. Only the Oats & Honey were in stock which was fine with me as that’s the flavour I'd choose anyway.
Each box contains 6 cereal bars individually packed inside a clear wrapper. I like this as it’s nice to be able to see what you’re about to eat before unwrapping it.
The Count Down range is probably produced just for Poundland so may not be found anywhere else. They're made by Rivington Biscuits Ltd., in Wigan.
