    I am puzzled. I don't often have cereal as my HexB but in my book it says that I can have 42g of Kellogs All Bran Fibre Plus as a B. Now 42g sounds a lot more tempting to me than the 28g of the other cereals that are allowed, but I can't seem to find All Bran Fibre Plus - is this the same as All Bran, or is this a special sort as the one I find doesn't say Fibre Plus on the box.

    I was the same, I tried to find the All Bran fibre plus but gave up in the end! Hope you have more luck.

    I stuck with Weetabix in the end, mainly as you can just grab them without the need for weighing :)

    I got mine in Tesco, however, when you weigh it out its not actually that much :(

    If you want a big bowl of cereal for your HEB go for puffed wheat, you can have 28g plus 2 x scan bran. I add splenda to mine and they taste like sugar puffs - bonus!

    Does it actually say all bran fibre plus on the box? The only product I can find on the Kellogs website just says All Bran on the box.

    I googled all bran plus and it seems to be available overseas but not in the uk. It looks like its just all bran original here so not sure if it is the same product but packaged differently for overseas. I may be wrong and someone may tell you differently.

    I'm sure its the same thing. It's quite nice if you soak it in your milk overnight as it makes a sort of wholemeal porridge. Weetabix crunchy bran is good too. I often use it as something to nibble at night.

    I'm pretty sure All Bran and the All Bran Fibre Plus are the same thing, they just rebranded.

    I too use Weetabix Crunchy Bran or the Puffed Wheat, much much better and tastier than All Bran, IMHO. x

    It's one and the same. You can have own brand all bran too. Tesco's is half the price of kelloggs all bran and just as good.
    It may not look much in the bowl, but with a chopped banana added and once the milk has soaked in, it swells up all lovely and fills you right up!! I love it!

    I also have a question along the same lines, so hope it's ok to jump onto this thread Melanie?

    On the online HexB list it says "28g Kelloggs All Bran Bran Flakes" - is this just normal Bran Flakes? Or some special Bran-boosted version?

    Yeah, I also agree that Weetabix Crunchy Bran is yummy!

    All bran bran flakes are the same as bran flakes. Again, you can have own brand ones as well as Kelloggs.

    I think at one point Kelloggs might have called them all bran bran flakes!
