Oh how I love malt loaf, and Soreen are the Gods of malt loaf lets face it. I dont buy it that often just because I will demolish a loaf in one sitting with a generous dose of marg on each slice, and this is obviously not the best way to balance your diet.
I was inbetween appointments today and needed something to tide me over until lunchtime and didnt want a choc bar. I noticed the bright yellow Soreen Snack Pack beconing me from the snack stand and couldnt resist. Once you open the pack you are presented with two good thickness (about 1-1.5cm) slices of loaf with Anchor butter spread inbetween. Both slices sit on a little yellow tray to protect the food item and to enable you to eat them without the wrapper around them. The butter is not spread too thickly so is not oozing out of sides but is adequate enough to enable you to pull apart the two slices with ease. You can then sit back and enjoy this sweet, sticky, yummy snack at your leisure. You dont loose any of the traditional malt loaf taste just because it is presliced and packed separately, nor do you end up with dry edges or dried out slices. It is as if you have just sliced this off the main loaf at home.
I only paid 58p for this at local Sainsburys and it more than hit the spot and filled the gap prior to lunch. It is a widely available product that I feel is good value for money and should not be overlooked for more fashionable breakfast bar snacks. The pack is 220 calories per pack, so although not in the realms of under 100 calories snack bars I find it filled me up for longer and did not leave me craving more chocolate or sweet items.
Will be buying this again next time I am peckish and an apple just wont hit the spot!
Summary: Lovely, yummy and good priced filling product
