Now Weetabix have brought out another new Weetabix Protein cereal in the familiar wheat biscuit form. So what are they like?
I purchased one box of 24 wheat biscuits at the slightly inflated price of £2.99 compared with the regular Weetabix price of £2.39.
On the box it says:
‘Made with Protein from wholegrain wheat for healthy muscles and strong bones. A deliciously nutritious breakfast that helps keep you going all morning.’
I served these up to my daughter with warm milk as she likes them, and asked what she thought. Well, she didn’t really notice any difference at all. I tried some too and as far as I can tell, they taste just the same as regular Weetabix. The only real noticeable difference is the little round crunchy bits dotted around throughout each biscuit. These add a bit of chewiness to the over texture and they’re actually very nice.
They have more protein than regular Weetabix: 19g compared with 12g per 100g, so they should leave you feeling a bit fuller. They also have a full set of green traffic lights – low sugar, low salt, low fat and low saturated fat.
In the list of ingredients it mentions cocoa powder, however, I don’t know if this is a mistake because I sure can’t detect any hint of chocolate.
You can find new Weetabix Protein in Ocado online, branches of Waitrose and Sainsbury’s.
Ingredients: Wholegrain wheat (86%), wheat gluten, sugar, malted barley extract, Rice flour, wheat starch, wheat germ, cocoa powder, salt, niacin, iron, riboflavin (B2), thiamin (B1), folic acid, vitamin D.
Nutrition Information 100g: (144 calories per 2 biscuits), 360 calories, 1.9g fat, 0.4g saturates, 62g carbohydrates, 4.8g sugars, 9.6g fibre, 19g protein, 0.23g salt.
