      Second Best Oatibake

      Having tried the blackurrant and caramel oatibakes I decided it was time to sample these strawberry ones as well.


      The slices comes are packed in a plastic tray which, in turn is packed in an outer paper carton. The carton is recyclable & is predominantly red in colour. The "Mr. Kipling" logo is on the front, along with the name & a picture of an oatibake, some oats and a strawberry sliced in half. The back of the carton lists the ingredients, allergy advice, nutritional information & the Mr. Kipling's quality guarantee. There are also pictures of Mr. Kipling's Caramel Oatibakes and Blackcurrant Oatibakes.

      The website address is:- www.mrkipling.co.uk

      and the product is described as:- "Moist sponge baked with oats (22%), golden syrup (21%) and a layer of strawberry jam (15%)"

      Ingredients: Oats, Golden Syrup (Partially Inverted Refiners Syrup), Strawberry Jam [Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Strawberries, Humectant (Vegetable Glycerine), Gelling Agent (Pectin), Citric Acid, Acidity Regulator (Sodium Citrates), Preservative (Potassium Sorbate), Flavouring, Colour (Cochineal)], Vegetable Oil, Reconstituted Egg White, Wheat Flour, Butter, Glucose Syrup, Humectant (Vegetable Glycerine), Invert Sugar Syrup, Raising Agents (Disodium Diphosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate).

      Dietary & Allergy Information

      Contains gluten (wheat, oats), egg & milk.
      May contain nut traces

      These slices are suitable for vegetarians. They contain no artificial colour or flavours and no hydrogenated fat.

      The oatibakes:

      Like the Blackcurrant and Caramel Oatibakes these Strawberry Oatibakes are individually wrapped in plastic film so there's no issue with the air getting to the second oatibakes like there can be with the products that are packed in pairs. The outer box informs us that we should check local recycling details to find out whether the plastic film in which the oatibakes and wrapped and the plastic tray which holds them are able to be recycled.

      I paid the sum of 99p for these in my local corner shop. Asda currently have a 3 for £3 offer on them.

      Taste and Opinion:

      These are the same in size and shape as the other Oatibakes. They're just over 7cms long by 3 cms thick and around 2cm in depth. The ends, top and bottom of each oatibakes looks an appetising golden brown whilst the sides are just a shade lighter. You can see a layer of strawberry jam running unevenly through the oatibake although if you had this and a blackurrant oatibake side by side on a plate you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two of them until you tasted them.

      The oatibake is soft and moist and you can really taste the oats that have been used to make it. The strawberry jam and the golden syrup help to bind the whole thing together as well as creating a sweet taste and moist texture to the oatibake. These are really yummy and, in terms of oatibakes probably come second to the blackcurrant oatibakes. They're slightly better, in my opinion, to the caramel oatibakes. One of the nice things about them is that you really can taste the strawberry jam, although I'd prefer it slightly more of it was used in the oatibake. If you're looking for something that's not dry and doesn't have any sort of icing on it then look no further that these as they're very tasty.

      Sizewise these are a very handy size to pop into a lunchbox and the fact that they're individually packed means that you're not forced to leave one exposed to the air if you only want to eat one oatibake, in the same way that you are with the Mr. Kipling products that are packed in pairs.

      The sugar & fat content with these isn't brilliant, but then it's pretty similar to lots of cake type products that are available, particularly those made by Mr. Kipling. One oatibake will provide you with 13.0g of sugar (RDA for adults is 90g) and 8.2g of fat (RDA for adults is 70%), which is slightly more sugar than the blackcurrant and caramel oatibakes. On the fat front these contain the same fat as the blackcurrant oatibake but less than the caramel oatibake. So, they're not brilliant on the sugar and fat front but then there are "worse" products out there.

      If you haven't tried these yet but have tried something like Kellogg's Nutrigrain bars and like those then I think you'd like these as well. If you've tried either of the other oatibakes and like them you'll like these as well.
