    I thought the Alpen one's were the only HEXB due to the fibre content so I'll be well pleased if these are.

    Theres quite a few other cereal bars that can be used as a B choice but as far as i know alpen lights are the only ones u can have 2 of as a B choice. the others you only get one booo :( so even if they are cheaper you might still be hungry!

    i do it from home so prob not best for the most up to date info but i am sure someone will be along soon that can help more!

    also i wouldn't be too afraid of eating them even if they are not a B choice as most cereal bars i find tend to only be around 4 or 5syns so not bad at all as a snack!

    Just checked the site and it says 2 Asda Real Apple /Real Strawberry Fruit Bars 20g.
    Not sure if this is the same as you have.

    No sorry! The Asda ones mentioned are not actually cereal bars they are more like strips of fruity jelly a little bit larger than a stick of chewing gum. I picked up a couple of boxes months ago in the sale section but haven't seen them since, so I suspect they don't make them any more. They weren't worth a HEb anyway and I ended up chucking them in the bin.

    As far as I can see, these aren't the ones that you can have as a B choice :( The only ones listed are the Asda Real Apple/Real Strawberry Fruit Bars, but I think someone said they don't even do them anymore.

    Maybe these are the replacement of them ,someone with the 2010 directory could check for you.
    The alpen bars were 2 for £3 in Asda.

    Alpen lights are also available at B&M Bargains, think they're about £1.20 per box. I only buy them on offer - they are very expensive for what you get - & have bread as my HEX B otherwise. X

    Check out Farmfoods as well, as they can sometimes have them for £1 a box, although not very many flavour.

    [FONT=&quot]Have you tried Harvest Morn less than 70 cal muesli bars from Aldi. They have absolutely the same nutritional information as Alpen light. There are three varieties and for me they are good replacement. The price is £1.25 for box of 6 bars[/FONT]
