    Hi guys

    I am really trying to watch what I spend on food shopping at the mo, I really enjoy Alpen Light Bars but I was wondering if there are any cheaper alternatives that still count as a HEX?

    Thanks

    Can't help on alternatives but Tesco had them on 3 for 2 last week if you want to stock up. I think there is a similar Aldi/Lidl bar, someone will be along to tell you I'm sure.

    The weetabix bars are delish and they are always in poundland or the bargain shops, so you can easily get a box of 5 for the most of £1 :) unlike alpen lights though, they're only one for a HEX.

    Aldi Harvest Morn <70 calories cereal bars are syn free and you can have two for a HEB. They are about £1.29 a box.

    Or you could make your own HEB flapjack - recipe in the recipe sub-forum - very yummy they are too!

    I got the Kelloggs Fibre Plus (1 = HexB) and I thought it was delicious. It was the milk choc one, I've yet to find the chic and almond one.

    I second the Aldi benefit bars., They are nice enough, but not so nice that you are out of control around them.

    Unlike Aldi Choco Ball bars. 5.5 syns. I can't be trusted with these so have had to stop buying them!:eek: (They are gorge though).

    If you have a B&M's near you they sell Alpen bars 5 for £1, they only had Choc Fudge Light ones in my local store though, the rest weren't Light.
