    Hello,

    Has anyone else seen these in shops/advertised on TV? Thought they looked interesting...has anyone tried them/know what they're like nutritionally?

    I've seen something about these lately but can't for the life of me remember what it is or where I saw it! However, I saw them on sale today at my local swimming pool cafe. I was tempted to try them but then thought I'd better swat up on them first.

    I had half a biscuit yesterday! A friend had them and said to try them so I did! It was nice but not sure what it was like nutritionally!

    Just checked the Syns On-Line and the Fruit & Fibre are 2.5 syns each and the Milk & Cereal are 3 syns each.

    icklerockchick slow but steady!

    these are on offer for a pound in asda but the shelves were bare :(

    quite high in syns though as i think they come wrapped in little portions of 4 biscuits so that could be as much as 12syns!

    They're quite nice :) Bit like a malted milk biscuit, but crisper.

    Pretty handy I would have thought for people who are in a desperate rush for work in the mornings, yet want some brekkie.

    i would be surprised if they are. Going by the nutritional info above they are high in fat and low in fibre - in other words they are biscuits! To be honest I think it's just a marketing ploy by Nestle trying to brand them as a healthy breakfast option.

    Looking at the info I think I'll stick with Weetabix and porridge or Alpen Lights if I'm in a hurry! :D

    Just bought a fruity pack of these in Tescos because they were half price - was hoping they would be lower in syns. Ah well, one might be nice with a yoghurt later. Definitely not enough for a breakfast though!

    Biscuits are my downfall, I wouldn't be able to just eat one of these - I'd have the entire box gone with a cup of tea. Think of the people who will actually do that though, convinced it's a "healthy" breakfast.

    It's definitely sold as that on the box. High in fibre and all that. Grr, glad I just paid the discounted price for them - am sure OH and the kids will scoff a fair few ;)

    I just saw these in Tesco, they were on offer and someone had opened a box so I had a look and they looked nice but small ( that might just be me) in little packs of 4. I looked at the nutritional info and 1 biccy was over 50 cals and so the pack of 4 would be over 200 cals and so I put them back.
    I'd rather have a fibre plus bar if I didn't have time for brekky.

    I haven't been able to get hold of the Fibre Plus bars - that's what I was in Tescos looking for :p Are they with the normal cereal bars? I think our Tesco may just be rubbish!

    My mate got some in Tesco the other day (the milk and cereal ones). So I had one to try. Nice, like a cross between a malted milk and a sports biscuit but I wouldnt waste syns, calories, points or whatever else your counting on one!
