I've said this before but, as a child I was a thief. When the fancy took me during the day, while my mum wasn't looking, I would steal a mug of Alpen, top it up with whatever was creamiest in the fridge, and take this under the dining room table, together with a teaspoon. There I would munch away happily - the small spoon making the experience last so much longer. Our table was a bit strange. It had just two solid legs that stretched the full width of the top and, with a cloth dangling over this, I could hide from view in my little house. I guess though that I wasn't meant for a life of crime as I never covered my tracks too well. When my mum ... Read the complete review

Alpen is made by the Weetabix cereal company and was created in the late 1960's. According to an article I read, it was created as a reaction to the natural organic and environmental movements sweeping the US and UK. To me it has always seemed quite a natural, aware product. This might have something to do with their advertising showing rolling hills and clean, fresh countrysides. This healthy philosophy extends to all their products and their muesli cereals are one of my favourite types of cereal. I love muesli based cereals as I like to mix them with yogurt and add more fruit as this means a different breakfast everyday as you can really add anything you ... Read the complete review

I'm loving the very old photo at the top of page showing Alpen. I've always liked Alpen cereal more then other brands. At present this is on offer at co op for £2.00 and to be honest I rarely buy it if it isn't on offer as it can be priced up to £2.49 in the likes of Asda. Some shops do it at a permanently low price though. Alpen is made from a Swiss recipe and nowhere on the box does it say Muesli which is what I would call it. Made from 100% natural ingredients which are Rolled oats, Wholemeal flakes, raisins, roasted slices of hazelnuts and almonds. On pouring this into a bowl you will notice it is all covered in what seems like a ... Read the complete review

that is exactly what Alpen no added sugar is read on to find out why! I have started a new way of eating and soon I will finish the book and my opinion on that book and tell you all about it in the meantime I can tell you about the new foods I am eating. First, has to be breakfast, so after having that cleansing glass of water first thing what do you want to put into your body? Well this is one of the many questions I have to ask myself every day, I love food but was always ashamed of eating and because of this I am now very overweight hence the healthy eating plan and book. Back to the product, Alpen no added sugar is one of a few breakfast ... Read the complete review

I have always loved Alpen, ever since I was a child. Yet over the years I have kind of 'forgot' to buy it and so when I fancied some the other week, I went to grab a box in the supermarket, and then when I saw that the price of an average sized box was just under £5 I immediately put it back!! I think that Alpen has gone far too expensive. However, I did manage to recently find a small 375g box of Alpen for just £1.89, and so I was pleased that I could actually afford it. For those of you who don't know, Alpen is a muesli type of cereal made by Weetabix; it has been around since the 1960's and so is well established. The cereal consists of ... Read the complete review
