    trying to speed things up a bit.

    I've never has scan bran before but am going to buy some when I go to class in a minute. What's the best way of eating it? Is it a HEXB?

    It is a HEXB. :) I think you can have 5. One syn each otherwise. The best way to get them down is with LOADS of spready cheese. Or in a scan bran chocolate cake.

    Quick question also what is scan bran. I;ve seen it advertised in the local market *scan bran back in stock* i assume its quite versatile.

    it resembles compressed grass / cardboard and has a taste to match..
    very hard but also very absorbent.. so dunked in something works well or crumbled up into something..

    it is quite versatile in as far as peoples ways to hide and disguise it into something remotely appetising..

    it is also a required part of some of the HeB's that would otherwise be lacking in fiber to make it a valid HeB, such as 28g of fruit 'n' fibre and 1 oat/scan bran..

    a woman in our group adds one to poridge to add fibre to it..

    I have only tried the carrot cake and it is amazing - like Christmas cake. I cut it into 8 and freeze it. Only 1.5 syns a piece. I have it with cottage cheese mixed with orange zest. Sounds manky, but I love it!

    the only way they can possibly be eaten as they are, is with a good inch of chocolate spread on the top - but I guess that isn't the idea of them really!!! I crumble and mix into things, so you eat it without realising. They not too bad with tinned toms on them so they go all soggy. But I have to say they take some winding down with plenty of water.

    I don't think Scan Bran is SS, is it not just FF?

    Anyway 1 tbsp of Nutella melted in microwave mixed with 5 scan bran that you have blitzed in the food proceesor, form in to wee balls and pop in sweetie cases and chill until set SW Ferrero Rocher... and you get lots for 6 syns and a HEb

    they are good as a "base" to put a SW "fry up" on..
    they soak up the juice from the tom's and beans, and runny egg...

    I can't believe I am admitting this (and I know it makes me seriously odd) but...

    My name is Sockmonkey and I like scanbran. As it comes, on it's own, completely plain.

    I just had to get that off my chest.
