    I am loving Alpen but they are quite expensive especially having a 2 a day. Are there any supermarkets own brand that you can have as an H E that are the same as Alpen?

    Quality save quite often have alpen lights on offer for about £1 a box if I remember correctly. They dont always have the offer on but grab them when you can when they do.

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] Kellogg's Special K Chocolate Chip Cereal Bar aren't a healthy extra b, they're 4 syns each but they are really yummy. I'm not sure if they're cheaper either, but just thought I'd mention them because they're so good!

    I really like the chocolate oat bars by nutrigrain, only 3 1/2 syns, they are really filling, and sometimes I just split it so that I have 'two' a day. Delicious!!
    stops my chocolate cravings...

    The tesco chocolate and orange light cereal bars are horrible - they don't resemble the alpen bars at all, so i would seriously doubt they would be classed as a HEB.

    Just in case anyone was tempted to try them!

    I buy the morrisons cranberry cereal bars ( think its eat smart or whatever there low fat range is)
    They are really tasty and only about 95p for 6 i think.
    About 80 cals and cant remember fat but its less than 5g per 100g

    Jen - I have tried those Tesco ones as well, tasted awful! I find it really hard to find ones that I like, as I am a bit fussy with cereal bars.

    The tesco ones are akin to floor sweepings held together with something chemically sweet!!

    What about the Ryvita ones? I don't think they're that cheap either those. You can't beat HiFi bars! Again, not cheap! I wonder why they're all so expensive?!

    I like the HiFi bars but I'd rather have the Alpens as I can have 2
