Have just made this, and it tasted disgusting! Couldn't stomach eating it, so have thrown it out. Was really hard to chew it.

Is it meant to taste like this? I keep reading threads about how nice it is.

Shame as I really wanted to like it. It's the first time I've tried Scanbrown, so maybe I wasn't used to the texture ;)

Yes it is disgusting but I lost 3.5lbs by having a piece a day so I'm just about to make another one! :)

I take a bite, then wash it down with squash!

LOL you either love or hate the stuff! I'm not keen at all and hate the fact it seems to "grow" in my mouth when I eat it.

I found it just ok but not nice enough to make myself. Have you seen the spanish orange cake on SW website? It looks yummy

I managed a slice of it and still feel sick from it. Maybe that's how it works, you feel too sick to eat anything after it;)

Seriously, is it really meant to be good for weight loss? If it is, maybe I should investigate new ways to make it palatable!

Personally I think its crazy to eat something you hate!!!! Every food has cals, why waste them on something horrible?????

I made the all bran one the othernight, and it was vile. I can't believe they have the recipe on the website, its almost enough to put me off sw!!!!!!!!!


needs to focus!!!!

must admit i wouldn't eat something that i didn't like, i do enjoy the scanbran and all bran cakes though, the all bran cake is probably the best one though. xx

I hated the choc one but I have a piece of the marmalade one or the sweet mincemeat one nearly every day. I love it and it's saved my day on many an occasion :)

I must be weird, as I actually like it. I top mine with sliced banana or strawberries and then add 4 tablespoons of light squirty cream on top (only 1 syn)

Food like this makes me sad- I know lots love it but I HATE HATE HATE food that is 'diet'

I would rather have a little of something real than a lot of something that is pretending to be nice

Thats why I love SW- I eat tons of free tasty meals and save all my lovely syns for real chocolate and cake- yum



A sucker for a key change
I was just wondering, do the people that love the chocolate bran cakes also like All Bran as cereal and vice versa? I haven't made either one yet, but I love all bran for breakfast and hoped that would mean that the cake would be nice for my tastebuds...
