Disadvantages: Sugar Content
Tesco Golden Honey Puffs packaging no longer resembles the image shown.
They can now be found in a yellow/gold box. There is still a picture of a bowl of cereal but this is accompanied by two extremely happy looking bees - I think they may have over dosed on sugar (spoons in hand ready to munch!!).
I decided upon them whilst perusing the cereal aisle. A bargain 99p for 375g. Sugar Puffs in comparison are priced at £1.95 for 325g, so quite a difference in price.
They are obviously not the healthiest cereal on the market - Tesco have managed to avoid using the word sugar in the title, possible to detract from any unhealthy connotations?
30g of the product, served with 125ml of semi-skimmed milk contains 165 kcals,
28.1g carbohydrate - of which are sugars 15.7g,
2.6g fat (of which saturates 1.4g,
1.6g fibre and 0.1g sodium.
The product is suitable for vegetarians and contains wheat and gluten.
It's sugar content makes up 17% of daily guideline amounts - so quite a hefty portion - particularly for a child.
Sugar Puffs in comparison contain 25.7g carbohydrate, of which are sugars 10.6g.
I found this quite surprising, taste wise, I find sugar Puffs much sweeter. This is the only difference in taste I have noticed.
They both taste good and sometimes one bowl isn't enough!
My son loves cereals such as these but I certainly don't give them to him all the time. He is a Sugar Puffs fan and he didn't notice that he wasn't eating 'the real thing'.
If you are looking for a tasty, occasional snack, this product can't be beaten on price.
It will stay fresh in the packet for quite some time - as long as you remember to roll down the bag inside the box, making it as airtight as possible.

Summary: Not bad for an occasional snack
