      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      3/5 stars from me. Nice enough for a quick easy snack, but a bit dry and pricey!

      I love cereal bars as a snack during the day but they are usually full of sugar and calories so I try to go for the lower calorie versions where possible so I don't feel so guilty, but I find this difficult as the lower calorie ones do tend to be more expensive than the ones packed with sugar, I guess this is because there made with better ingredients? Now, Go Ahead! did used to be produced and branded as a Mcvitie's product however by the looks of things united biscuits has taken over Go Ahead! now (google told me so) as the Mcvitie's logo is nowhere to be seen on the box, which is a shame because Mcvitie's is such a well-known trusted brand that more people are likely to buy from them. But I was happy enough that Mcvitie's used to produce them, so they must be up their standards.

      United biscuits began in 1967 and has taken over many popular brands such as Jacobs, carr's, KP and McCoy's and produces products such as skips, hula hoops and nik naks. Aswell as yoghurt breaks Go Ahead! Provide us with fruity cake slices and fruit bakes in a range of tasty flavours.

      ~ Product and availability ~
      Go ahead! Raspberry yoghurt breaks are available in most major supermarkets such as Tesco's, Asda and Sainsbury's. They are available to buy in boxes of 6 packs of 2 cereal bars/biscuits. They are quite expensive and I don't buy them unless they are on offer, at full price they are around £2.29 which to me is ridiculous, therefore my trolley was full of them this week as Tesco's have them currently on offer at £1.14 which is a saving of around £1.15 and makes them less than 20p a packet! Bargain alert! I believe you can buy them singularly at garages and corner shops but as always it works out more expensive this way. Go ahead! Yoghurt breaks come in several different flavours if raspberry isn't your thing such as strawberry, forest fruits, red cherry, tropical fruits and blueberry. Go ahead! Also sell these breaks without a yoghurt coating which are called crispy slices and come in the same flavours but with one added which is apple and sultana.

      ~ Packaging ~
      All of the Go Ahead! Range come in vibrant green packaging which makes Go ahead! Products easy to spot when bargain hunting. These raspberry yoghurt breaks in particular come in a cardboard box (yay for recyclers!) which has the go ahead! Logo clearly printed in large writing on the front along with the flavour of the product and a picture of the yoghurt breaks broken into - revealing some juicy looking dried fruit. Towards the bottom of the box you will see some basic nutritional information and a description of the product, which reads: 6 packs of 2 delicious yoghurt flavour topping on a light crispy biscuit with a sultana & raspberry flavoured filling. (Personally I think that is worded really badly!). On the sides of the box you can find the nutritional information in more detail along with the ingredients list and the quality guarantee. The back of the box shows you other varieties of the product and babbles on about how important it is to have a healthy lifestyle. Each pack of two cereal bars is individually wrapped for freshness.

      ~ Appearance & Taste ~
      Taking these biscuits (yes I realise I have called them several things throughout this as I can't decide what they really are so I may refer to them as slices, cereal bars or biscuits...just bare with me :D) out of the packet you will find two thin pale, hard biscuits coated in a creamy looking yoghurt. They don't look that appealing really but not many cereal bars do. Taking a bite the first thing I notice is that they are pretty dry and without the yoghurt coating I think they would be awful as it provides the much needed moistness when eating and makes the biscuits easier to swallow. The biscuit itself reminds me of a sort of rich tea biscuit as it's very hard and has a nice crunch to it. The yoghurt is a very thin coating but is really quite tasty, I don't think it's any particular flavour yoghurt but its decent enough and really quite sweet and creamy. The fruit filling is nice as well, I can't really make out much raspberry-ness but the raisins are definitely there, considering these are supposed to be raspberry yoghurt breaks perhaps more raspberry would be nice though. The fruit pieces are quite plentiful and carry on all the way through the slice and give the biscuit some texture. The fruit is quite chewy but in a good way because it goes well with the crunchiness of the biscuit and tarts the whole thing up a bit and makes it a little more exciting to eat. I don't think these are overly sweet because the flavours are balanced out quite well and complement each other, I can see in a way why they have chosen to use such a plain biscuit as the base as it gives these a sort of savoury edge to the flavour. These are also nice dunked in tea, it melts the yoghurt whilst keeping the biscuit crunchy.

      ~ Other information ~
      Each yoghurt break contains 74 calories. Now, bare in mind there are two to a packet so there are 148 calories per packet, which still isn't bad comparing them to other cereal bars or a chocolate bar. There are also 7.2g of sugar, 1.8g of fat, 0.8g of saturates and 0.1g of salt per yoghurt break.
      The finished product contains 20 % sultanas, 4 % currants and the equivalent of 0.9 % raspberry, which explains why I couldn't really tell these were raspberry flavoured.
      Contains milk, soya and gluten and may contain nuts, sesame seeds and egg.
      This product is suitable for vegetarians.
      ~ Over all verdict ~

      I often enjoy these cereal bars for a snack or breakfast as they are quite light but manage to fill me up until my next meal. I don't think these yoghurt breaks are really anything to shout about, especially for the price but I like the fact that they are supposedly better for you than other cereal bars on offer. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy them; they can just be a bit boring. I would recommend these to anybody who enjoys cereal bars and fancies a change from the usual or to anybody who is perhaps watching what they eat because these are a better option than some. I definitely don't think these are for everybody, a lot of people will find these simply too dry but I also know a lot of people that love these and buy them regularly so I guess you just have to try them and see.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A nice snack to reach for when you're trying to fight off any chocolatey temptations!

        I do manage quite well at work to avoid giving into temptation and tucking into the latest cakes or biscuit treats that someone has brought in. I'm always on the lookout for healthy but tasty snacks to take into work with me to help ward off this temptation, and the Go Ahead! Yogurt Breaks in raspberry flavour were my latest find when they were on a buy one get one free offer at the supermarket.

        This tasty treat is a light, crispy biscuit which is covered in a yogurt flavoured topping, and inside is sultana and raspberry flavoured filling. It sounds really delicious, and calorie wise it's not bad at all! Inside a box you get 6 packs of these biscuits, and in each pack are 2 separate biscuits. Per slice there is only 72 calories and 0.8g of saturated fats so it's perfect for me for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. For allergy sufferers these biscuits contain Milk, Soya and Gluten and may contain nuts, sesame seeds and egg.

        The biscuits come sealed in a foil wrapper, and I'm always pleased to find they are rarely broken or in pieces. There's nothing worse than me making a mess on my desk at work, or getting little crumbs in the keyboard! I love the taste of the yogurt topping on the biscuit, it reminds me of my favourite yogurt coated peanuts and raisins. The raspberry filling is tasty, but I probably prefer a bit more of the raspberry taste to it as it's quite faint and the yogurt flavour is more overpowering. The biscuit overall is quite sweet and not so savoury in taste. Despite this, it's a very tasty snack and it doesn't take me long to eat them! They always keep away any chocolate temptations (which trust me, is really very difficult) and because they are sweet they cure those sugary cravings.

        There are other flavours available in the range which I wouldn't mind trying out consisting of Strawberry, Blueberry and Forest Fruits so there is a nice variety amongst them. The price of these biscuits varies at each supermarket, so have a look at mysupermarket.co.uk if you're interested, but I paid around £2.69 on a BOGOF offer for mine, so for 12 packs this wasn't a bad price and I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again if I spot them on a similar offer. For a single pack of 6 though and at that price, I would stick to cheaper cereal bars as snacks.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The ingredients may not be perfect, but for me, the taste does the talking!

          I'm one of those people constantly searching for something new and healthy to calm my chocolate addiction, well, last week, desperation led me to purchasing McVities Go Ahead Yogurt Breaks (This, for me, was a last straw - I hate yogurt!)

          I went for Raspberry, although they also do Strawberry, Blueberry, Topical, Plain and Forest Fruits in the Yogurt Breaks range, because I really do enjoy raspberries - plus, they are a superfood!

          The box promised good things, boasting only 72kcal and 1.8f of fat per slice with no artificial colours or flavours, which sounded a promising alternative to my usual biscuits. The box, at around £2.25, contains 6 packs of 2 slices - perfect addition to a lunch box, a light snack or even as an extra with breakfast.

          It describes the product as 'Delicious yogurt flavour topping on a light crispy biscuit with a sultana and raspberry flavoured filling'. At which point it was still sounding promising to me.

          The packaging design was also an added bonus, bright green emoted a sense of natural and the raspberries depicted behind the brand logo suggested real fruit fillings - which, to an extent, they are - raspberry puree and sultanas (finished product contains 20% sultanas, 4% currants and equivalent of 1.1% Raspberry), although with some commercial binding agents and similar, it isn't as unhealthy as some of the alternatives on the market. The individual twin packs are foil and sealed - maintaining freshness and a crisp break every time, as well as making them great for travelling or lunch boxes, and contain all the ingredient and nutritional information again.

          So then we got onto the taste, I was slightly apprehensive, due to the aformentioned hatred of yogurt - but I truly was pleasantly suprised! The filling is consistent but thick enough to feel like real fruit, the biscuit is crisp and quite delicious, making a lovely crunch - which, considering you eat with texture as well as taste, made a lovely combination with the filling - and the dreaded yogurt was sweet and soft and actually very pleasant. I was surpised to find the yogurt on only one side of the slice, and infact, I would have preferred in on both - but all in all it was a very delicious product. The taste, is something I can only describe as Jammy Dodger - I even got people around me to try them and they agreed, the sweetness of the yogurt and the biscuit with the raspberry filling emulated the jam in a jammy dodger, overall, a lovely alternative to the biscuits, with a similar sweetness - but without the extra unhealthyness.

          Per slice, nutritional value is as follows:
          72 Calories ( 4% RDA)
          7.0g Sugars (8% RDA)
          1.8g Fat (3% RDA)
          0.8g Saturates (4% RDA)
          0.1g Salt (2% RDA)

          Not the healthiest health snack really, and the ingredient list isn't exactl organic, but a very nice and delicious alternative to chocolate biscuits - and definitely keeps you going a lot longer! So for me, an excellent find as an alternative to traditional, unhealthy biscuits!!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good alternative to chocolate

          In an attempt to try and be healthier I've decided to stop having biscuits with my morning brew. I've started to buy more cereal / snack bars as I like to graze throughout the day so need something to keep me going until lunch.

          Go Ahead are made by McVities and a quick look at their website (www.goahead.co.uk) tells me that they have been around since 1996 and are the UKs number 1 low fat biscuit brand. The yoghurt breaks were added to the line a few of years ago and the Go Ahead have recently added a new range of oat squares to their collection. The website also has a 30pence of coupon to download and print.

          I spotted these Go Ahead bars in Asda last week on promotion, 2 boxes for £2. Each box contains 6 packs with two slices inside. The box is around 6" x 4" x 2" and has a re-sealable top.

          The front of the box has the product name along with the contents and bar variety with a picture of some raspberries and some nutritional statistics. The back has all the nutritional information as well as the ingredients and allergy advice, contact information and website.

          There are several ingredients but the main ones are Wheat flour, fruit filling (31%), Raspberry puree, wheat bran, rice flour, gelling agent (pectin) and dried skimmed milk. These are suitable for vegetarians but allergy wise they contain gluten, milk, soya / soya beans and may contain eggs, nuts and sesame seeds. These are free from artificial colours and flavours.

          Each slice has 304kj or 72 kcal, 1.0g protein, 13.1g carbohydrate of which 7.0g sugars, 1.8g fat of which 0.8g saturates, 0.4g fibre and 60mg calcium. Although the calorie content is fairly low I do think the sugar is pretty high but this is quite common with low fat ranges. The biggest problem is that the slices come in a pack of two and I always eat both so everything is doubled up but these are still healthier than a couple of chocolate biscuits or a packet of crisps.

          Each pair of slices is wrapped in a foil freshness packet which is great because I can just pop a pack in my handbag ready for work without having to get the cling film out. The packet opens fairly easily with a quick tear and inside I am greeted by two 4" x 2" rectangles.

          The top of the slice is covered in a thin white layer and the bottom is a pale yellow coloured biscuit. There is no smell present and there is nothing off putting about their appearance but they aren't particularly nice to look at either..

          To bite into, the slice is quite solid but not difficult to break, it has quite a crispy texture and there isn't any fruit or yoghurt to taste. However after the first bite the crispiness of the biscuit continues but this time it has added chewy fruit and a smooth yoghurt flavour. I found the filling a little non-descript as it has lots of sultanas and not enough raspberry taste. The yoghurt coating is pleasant enough but not particularly over powering.

          I do find it necessary to have a drink with these as they can feel quite dry in your mouth. Without any liquid refreshment I don't find these particularly pleasant as they become stodgy and hard to swallow.

          Overall, these are quite a tasty snack and because they are quite healthy I don't feel too guilty about having them. The first and last bite are a bit plain as the yoghurt coating and fruit filling doesn't quite reach to the ends but the rest is really quite pleasant.

          This product is also available in other varieties including forest fruits, strawberry, blueberry, tropical and plain. All of the Go Ahead yoghurt breaks contain less than 75 calories per slice.

          These are usually £2.14 per box which is too much for me to pay for a snack but at the offer price of effectively £1.00 a box I would definitely buy them again. They are a nice snack to have with a cuppa, easily transportable and pretty healthy.

            nice snack

            I absolutely love the Go-ahead bars and snacks as they are great for when you are dieting and need a nibble, as dieting is so so boring and you do get hungry between the small portions of meals you have, or the slimfast shakes don't quite last the hunger test from one meal to another, so at times like these i like to have something to fall back on. Something which will keep me out of the buscuit or cake tin and this is the McVitie's Go ahead Yogurt Breaks I love them.

            McVitie's Go ahead Yogurt Breaks are easy to find ont he supermarket shelves, they come in a carboard box with the Go-ahead logo on it and a picture of the yogurt bars on the front, You get six packets of two bars in each box and these are great for a tasty snack to stop you wolfing down a bar of chocolate or half a packet of buscuits as if like me you have to have a nibble between meals and once you start eating buscuits you can't stop, then these are a tasty alternative and as they are a helpful diet product you tend to think, "I'm being good by having one of these ".
            Which stops you from pigging out on them.

            The boxes will cost you anything from £2.49 to £1 when they are on offer at the supermarkets, I have even been able to buy these on offer at Morrisons one time for 79p which was a real good bargain, but I haven't seen them that low again. Still they are worth the price as I will only spend as much on chocolate bars in the garage and shop if I don't have these to snack on and I'm not the kind of person to just have one oiece of chocolate, once the bar is open I eat the lot. Having these tasty snacks in my bag helps me to reduce my sweet tooth intake.

            The biscuits themselves are very thin much like a garriboldi biscuit with raspberries in them the outside is covered with a thin layer of yogurt coating, which is so tasty you really have to watch your step when eating them as they are quite moorish. You really can taste the raspberries and it is not a thin jam either it is a nice and fruity filling that you get.

            Each buscuit is 72 calories so eating the twin pack is 177 calories so you have to be careful not to be tempted to eat another packet as they are tasty, but for a snack mid day this is not too bad more than likely you will burn this off whilst walking around the house or if your doing gardening or excercising.

            I really do rate these McVitie's Go ahead Yogurt Breaks as they are good for inbetween meals, kids can eat them in their packed lunch as they are not packet with E numbers and they are reasonably priced.

            So Go-Ahead.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Delicious snack!

              I first tried these Mcvitie's Go Ahead Yogurt Breaks when they were on offer in Asda 2 for £2. They are usually about £2.25 a box so when they are on offer it is a bargain! However yesterday, whilst shopping in my local b & m store i spotted them in there for £1 a box!

              Go Ahead yogurt breaks are just like a garibaldy. They are a light crispy biscuit, which has a thin layer of yogurt topping. Inside the yogurt break is a sultana and raspberry flavoured filling.

              These Go Ahead Yogurt Break Bars come in a box of 6 packs, and there are 2 yogurt breaks in each pack. The box is a bright green colour, a little different from the one shown in the picture. But it says exactly the same information on it.

              The bars themselves come in handy packets which are so easy to just throw into your bag or keep in your desk drawer at work for a snack. I bought these for my boyfriend, as he always seems to snack on chocolate in the morning after breakfast and as he is on a diet, we were on the look out for something a bit healthier he could snack on.

              To us these looked a healthier option, but when you look at the calorie content of each slice, which is 72 calories, they are not much better for him than having a biscuit or a packet of crisps! As there are two slices in each pack, and they are not very filling so you have got to eat both, that means your are consuming 144 calories!

              These yogurt bars are delicious though! The fruit fillings are very sweet and the biscuit is nice and light and leaves no mess or crumbs like other biscuits do. They come in a variety of flavours including raspberry, tropical, strawberry, blueberry and forest fruits. They are available at all supermarkets, and also b & m!

              The Go Ahead yogurt breaks claim to have no artificial colours of flavours.

              You should store these in a cool dry place, and they are also suitable for vegetarians!

              The box shows the companys interest in these being part of a healthier lifestyle, and its advertises a website - www.123healthybalance.com -
              which they tell you to visit to find out how to live a more healthy balanced lifestyle with exercise and a balanced diet.

              Mcvitie's also offers a helpline to call incase you are not happy with this product. It also gives an address to post the product back to if you arent happy! This just shows how confident they are in their product to do this! But also shows the customer they are reliable and trustworthy!

              Overall, i would recommend anyone to try these, they are cheap when on offer, and absolutely delicious!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                see review

                I recently read a review of McVitie's Go ahead Yogurt Breaks which gave them a definite thumbs up so on my weekly trip to the supermarket I decided to look out for them. I soon spotted these snacks as the box is brightly coloured in red and green with a picture of the Yogurt Break and some succulent looking raspberries. I have tried things from the Go Ahead range before and not been particularly impressed but I had read such a good review of them that I decided to pop a box into my shopping trolley.

                **What Do You Get In The Box?**
                When I got home I made a cup of tea and opened the box of Go Ahead. Inside the box are 6 foil wrapped snacks. The wrapping has the same picture as that on the box and encloses 2 Yogurt Breaks so you are getting 12 snacks in total.

                **The Look**
                I quickly unwrapped one of the foil packets and took out one of the Yogurt Breaks. The snack is a thin pale coloured biscuit with a raspberry and sultana filling and a coating of yogurt on top of the biscuit.

                **The Taste**
                The first bite revealed a nice crispy biscuit with a lovely mix of raspberries and sultanas, this was all complimented by the creamy yogurt topping. The snack as a whole is quite sweet and so gives that sugar fix for those who like that but it could be a bit too sweet for some people's tastes.

                **Nutritional Info**
                One of the selling points of Go Ahead is that this product does not contain any artificial colours or flavours, so good for children in respect of the dreaded E numbers. It is also, of course, marketed as a low fat product and each biscuit only contain 1.8g of fat. However, it all falls down a bit when you get to the sugar content - there is 7g of sugar in each biscuit! On first glance the calories look good at 72 per slice, however, bearing in mind the fact that these biscuits are very thin and only about 4 to 5 inches long, one is not going to be very filling and I know for certain that once I have opened the foil packet I am not going to each just one slice. That means that actually I am going to be consuming 144 calories for my snack instead of 72! Just out of interest the calorie content of 2 fingers of KitKat is 106 calories, one Milky Way 118 calories and one bar of Bounty 135 calories - I am now wondering if I should just go for the chocolate snack instead! My argument against this though is that Yogurt Breaks have got nice healthy raspberries and sultanas!

                **The Price**
                I paid £2.38 for this box and I think this is quite expensive compared to cereal bars but they are on offer in Sainsbury's this week at £3 for 2 boxes.

                **My summary**
                A really nice snack which has a lovely taste and I love the texture of the biscuit which is very crisp and acts as a good foil against the cream yogurt and fruity filling. They are also very portable in their foil wraps, great for sandwich boxes or even to pop into a handbag and less messy than chocolate. I will definitely be buying them again.

                  Nice, but not great!

                  The reason I come to be reviewing this is a little odd. I was in Tesco with my 22 month old and nearly 3 year old looking not only for the basics, but also good keeping kids quiet food that can be popped into my handbag that won't leave a sticky mess at the bottom, and one of my other pre-requesits is that they are non chocolate, non clothes staining and individually wrapped.

                  I spotted these go ahead bars on special offer. Buy 2 for £2.00. The usual price is £1.99 for a pack of 6 (2 slices in each).
                  I bought blueberry and strawberry flavour, as both are mine and the kids favourite.

                  I opened the pack and was greeted with 6 metalic kermit green wrappers. Openied one and handed them to the kids in the trolley, they quitely (and non clthes staining) ate them. It look them at least 10 minutes to do so, great!

                  The only way can discribe them is like old fashioned garibaldi biscuits. they are hard wheaty pale coloured biscuit bars with dried fruit speradically popped through them. It is not fruity in abundance at all. A few hard sweet dried fruits peppered through. There is also a thin-ish layer of very pale matt 'yogurt' over the top. This looks a little like icing. It is indeed also very sweet. The biscuit itself is not terribly sweet. It more hard and crunchy and somewhat dense. Very very like a garibaldy.

                  They are a nice snack. My children are not keen unless they are very very hungry. They wouldn;t for instance enjoy them as a little pudding after tea. I do however like them very much as they are not too sweet overall, but have a really lovely coating. I think this is the very best bit!

                  These are advertised as a diet-ish product. Low calorie. Each large slice contains only 74 calories......so go ahead! Each pack also contains 15% of the recommended daily requirement of calcium.

                  Nice, but certainly not my favourite!

                    Disadvantages

                    Perfect with a cup of tea!

                    I can't help always being tempted by something sweet which usually ends up being something chocolatey and very fattening. So a few months ago I decided to try to find something sweet but healthy which would satisfy my sugar craving whenever it reared its ugly head. I was actually recommended Go Ahead yoghurt bars by my mum who loves them so I decided to try a pack.

                    The bars come in a cardboard box which contains 6 foil packs of 2 bars - so there are actually 12 slices inside. A box this size usually costs between £1.80 and £2.

                    They are a light and crispy biscuit with a sultana and raspberry filling and a yoghurt flavour topping. The biscuit part of the bar is quite plain and hard and doesn't really have much flavour to it. It is also quite dry which means that the addition of fruit and yoghurt makes it taste much nicer and moister. The sultanas and raspberry are in the centre of the biscuit and these are very small pieces of fruit, so even for those who aren't too keen on sultanas or raisins, they are small enough in these bars to be enjoyed. The fruit gives a very sweet raspberry taste, although personally I would like a bit more fruit filling inside. The biscuit and fruit mixture are very much like garibaldi biscuits but the yoghurt topping makes them even better with a sweet and creamy finish.

                    Each slice contains only 74 calories and 1.9g of fat and they are lower in fat than other similar products which make them a perfect healthy snack or light meal. They make a great quick breakfast when on the go or are perfect as a light snack in between meals. I love to have mine with a cup of tea though, mmm!

                    These yoghurt breaks come in several different flavours including forest fruit, strawberry, plain, tropical, raspberry and blueberry. I've tried the forest fruit, strawberry and raspberry and the raspberry is by far my favourite the strawberry is far too sweet and the forest fruits not sweet enough so the raspberry sits just perfectly in the middle.

                      See review.

                      As someone who is always on the lookout for something a bit different and a little less fattening that deadly stuff....chocolate, I was immediately interested in these when I spotted them on my weekly shopping trip.

                      The product I will now review is - "Go ahead raspberry yoghurt breaks"

                      There are six, 2 biscuit packs in a box, with the box bearing all the relevant information, this being brand name, product name, contents and flavours.
                      These are branded as being a "healthier option" product, so this of course all the nutritional information on the box, as well as each individual packet.

                      The packs themselves are sealed ended foil packs, this keeps the servings fresh upon opening the box.

                      The biscuits themselves are very similar in design to a garibaldi biscuit, the biscuit consists of two flat sheets of crunchy biscuit sandwiched together with a chewy layer of sultana and raspberry filling, finally on the top there is a generous layer of white yoghurt.

                      The taste is truly delicious. The biscuit is light and reasonably tasteless, but nice and crunchy to the bite, couple that with the chewy sweet and fruity filling and finally the creamy, almost chocolaty topping, thus making this a really nice treat.

                      The nutritional information is as follows -
                      Per slice, (two slices to a pack),
                      74 kcals,
                      13.4g carbohydrates,
                      7.5g of which sugars,
                      1.9g fat,
                      0.9g of which saturates.

                      Allergy advice states that these contain milk, soya and gluten, these are also produced on a line that also handles nuts, sesame seeds and egg.

                      On the upside however, these have added calcium, always nice to get a bit of something extra that is actually good for you!

                      For more information visit - www.goahead.co.uk

                      Pricewise these are available from around the £1.50 mark, and are also available in a plethora of flavours, the orange and sultana ones being the next ones I think I will try!

                      Thanks for reading x
