    I just ordered good grain company puffed wheat (on special at Tesco for 90p) It's 100% puffed wheat nothing added. Can I use this as a HEB? Online just says puffed wheat. If not the kids will eat it :)

    Yes you can and you actually get quite a lot for your HEB because it's so light

    Thanks again Circes, ohhh hadn't thought of that, mind you I don't know what it will taste like it doesn't have anything added at all. I suppose I could put a banana or artificial sweetner on it that should be nice. :)

    I've heard people say that if you add sweetener it's just like ordinary rice krispies

    I think puffed wheat with sweetener tastes like sugar puffs, others have disagreed however, but i think they are nice and you do get loads for 28g as they are really light.

    I love puffed wheat, I think it tastes like sugar puffs and coz you get a lot it takes ages to eat so you feel as though you've had a really big breakfast.

    I've not had Sugar Puffs in years - I used to love em when I was a kid! I'm off out to buy a box right now - like the fact that you get 'more' for your syns cos I'm always starving in the morning!! xxx

    I haven't had these in years and I agree you get loads for your HEX B but I remember them not filling me up for very long! Definitely have some fruit and maybe some form of protein with them - a yogurt or maybe cottage cheese & fresh fruit to stave off hunger pangs!

    I bought these last week. They are like Suger Puffs and 28g is a good bowl size. I'm using milk from my HEa, sweetener and a couple of drops of vanilla essence. They're right fine!

    These sound good!! Iv never tried them before-bought sugar puffs a few months ago though because got confused! Bit gutted you cant use them as HEb however as they are so light...you can have 15g for 3 sins which isnt bad and still looks like a decent sized bowl! Will make sure i go for puffed wheat next time!!
