    Hi there,

    Does anybody happen to know whether Grape Nuts cereal can be used as a healthy extra B? I think the brand is called Post. I hope they can be as I love them! They're supposed to be high in fibre and low in fat, so fingers crossed :) xx

    I love grape nuts! They're so random but my dad used to always buy them when we were little- "stays crunchy in milk"! Once our local Tesco stopped selling them so my dad wrote a letter of complaint!

    The handbook says that 28g Grape-Nuts cereal counts as a heb (they're under Kraft rather than Post as the brand; Kraft own Post now). I love grape nuts as well! :)

    Nope, no scan bran, just the grape nuts alone - they must be full of fibre! They certainly need some chewing :D

    I'll have to seek out a box myself now I've remembered about them, hurrah!

    I've never heard of them - what are they most like? I have discovered a new love for breakfast cereals with a mullerlight and fruit, so I'm on the lookout for new additions!

    It's hard to describe what they're like! They're a wheat and malted barley cereal, and I definitely can taste the malt. But I love that so all is good :) I think they'd be very nice with mullerlight and fruit as they're very crunchy, so a bit more like a muesli addition to yoghurt :) xx

    They'd be really good sprinkled on yogurt - almost like a granola substitute (but without the hefty granola syns!)

    I had some today for the first time. I had mine with sweetener, milk and sliced banana. After stirring , the banana was coated with this lovely crunchy taste! Just wished I could have more than 28g :-(

    I also love cereal. So I have in my cupboard - Weetabix, Oatibix minis, Weetabix crunchy bran , shreddies, high fibre alpen, all bran, special K sustain and grapenuts. My faves are the 42g ones lol
