SunnyBisk Wheat Biscuits
Advantages: Low cost, very nice, keep me fuller for longer.
Disadvantages: Texture is v slightly rougher than branded equivilents.
I love Weetabix but I don't like the price of the branded product, so on my hunt for a cheaper alternative, I came across this cereal in my local Asda. I have never seen this in any other shop so I believe it may be exclusive to Asda.
For about £1 you get 36 wheat biscuits which are roughly 4cm x 8cm x 1.5cm that are rectangular in shape. In comparison to the branded Weetabix, these are a bit smaller and are a different shape. The box that they come in is yellow with a picture of the cereal on the front. On the sides it contains the nutritional information and some interesting "facts" about the cereal.
Although they are different in shape to normal Weetabix, once you add milk to them to taste similar. I find that "Weetabix" is very smooth to eat, however these ones are a little bit rougher, which is most likely due to the texture of the biscuit itself. This does not take anything away from the taste or quality of the cereal though as they are still made from wheat, just like Weetabix is. Normally I would have 2 "Weetabix" however I have 3 of these due to them being smaller. Once they start to add milk, they do go a bit soggy but they will hold there shape. With a bit of sugar on top, I find these to taste really nice and they do seem to keep me fuller for longer.
On the side of the box it says that it is:
High in carbohydrates
High in fibre
High in iron
Contains vitamins B1, B2 and B3
Low in fat
Low in sugar
All of these help to make it a healthy cereal to eat in the mornings and a look at the ingredients shows that they contain no unnecessary extras. They contain: Wheat, Sugar, Salt, Barley Malt Extract, Vitamins and Iron. These would be great for anyone who is on a diet as they do keep you fuller for longer and so they should help you eat less during the day.
I think that I have found a substitute for the branded Weetabix as these satisfy my hunger in the morning, taste nice, cost a lot less and you get more biscuits per box. If you have a local Asda shop, buy a box of these the next time you go. You will be pleasantly surprised.
I have to give these 5/5 as they are truly brilliant for the money and they are also very good for you.
Thanks for reading!
