    Changes to Alpen Light Cereal Bars

    From the SW website tonight. Make sure you complain on their FB page or by sending them an email!



    You may have heard via Facebook about a recent change to Alpen Light bars. We became aware of the changes earlier this week and we know that any change to a Healthy Extra choice is a hot topic for members. So our Food Co-ordination team here at Head Office have been in touch with Weetabix, the company that makes the bars, to find out the facts.

    Weetabix have confirmed that Alpen Light bars have been revamped – they’re using a new recipe which contains more calories than the previous version, and considerably less fibre. As a result of the changes, Alpen Light bars can no longer be counted as a Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice. The two Healthy Extra choices for this product which appear on page 28 of the Food Optimising book will not appear in future Food Optimising books or other directories.

    The new bars are rolling out into Asda first, followed by other supermarkets. It will take some time for the new recipe to make it into supermarkets so you may still be able to get hold of the old bars for a while yet, but we wanted to make you aware of the change as soon as possible.

    As a guide the new style bars say ‘Now… even more delicious!’ on the front of the pack and the higher calorie figure is also displayed on the packaging.

    Here are the latest nutritional details we have on the new Alpen Light bars:

    Summer Fruit 21g, 79 kcal, 1.8g fibre 4 Syns per bar

    Cherry Bakewell 23g, 88 kcal, 2.0g fibre 4 Syns per bar

    Apple Sultana 23g, 86 kcal, 1.9g fibre 4 Syns per bar

    Lemon Drizzle 23g, 85 kcal, 2.0g fibre 4 Syns per bar

    Chocolate & Fudge 23g, 89 kcal, 2.0g fibre 4 Syns per bar

    Double Chocolate 21g, 81 kcal, 1.8g fibre 4 Syns per bar

    Other Healthy ‘b’ choices

    We know many of you will be disappointed about this news. There are still delicious Healthy Extra ‘b’ cereal bars available (see our selection below), and you'll find even more choices in the Food Diary online.

    One of our new recipe Peanut Heaven Hi-fi bars
    Two Aldi Harvest Morn Benefit 70 cal cereal bars
    One Tesco Light Choices Cranberry and Blackcurrant cereal bars
    One Kellogg’s Special K Chewy Delight bar

    I know this is an old thread, but if I can get hold of the old 70cal bars can I use it as an hex b?

    I have stocked up, such a shame that they changed. I guess the company will have a shock as so many slimming worlders use them!
