    Hi,

    I forgot to ask my leader at my meeting yesterday about cereal bars.

    I have been having an Alpen strawberry yoghurt cereal bar for brekkie and synning it at 6 syns.

    But my friend, said I could use it as a HE B

    i thought you could only use those bars listed???

    Confused.com !! please help :D:rolleyes:

    thanks xx

    Its the alpen lights that are Hex b's. Regular alpens don't count. The summer fruits alpen lights sound similar if you want to give them a go!

    Alpen light bars are 2 for a HEXB - and they are really lovely, especially the chocolate and fudge ones - I've not tried any others because I love these so much.

    And yes you can only use the ones listed as a HEB, not just any old cereal bar. :)

    Just looked on supermarket comparison for these *light* bars. And tesco are doing 2 boxes of 5 for £2.50 instead of £1.61 per box. So saving 72p.
    Valid till 24/11/09, so bargain! Unless anyone knows anywhere cheaper?

    Also £1.25 a box in Asda. Or if you have a Farmfoods near you they were selling the apple and sultana ones for £1.

    The advantage of the Alpen light bars is that as you can have 2 as a HEXB you could have one in the morning and then one later in the day as well. I always have a box in my car incase I can't get lunch on the go. i know then I have only used 3 syns for one bar x
