“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Cereal Bar „
These are cereal bars. You get 6 in a box, weighing 21g each.
They are made of bits of rice and wheat cereal, and bits of dried peach and apricot, stuck together with glucose syrup, with a small amount of sweet yoghurty stuff on top. They've also got added vitamins and iron.
This is definitely the value range - the wrappers are plain (which doesn't matter) but the bar is quite small and there isn't much fruit in there. 6% to be precise. The bars are quite dry and not very sweet. They are ok but I'd only buy them again if I was really watching the budget!
At 20p each, they are pretty good value for what they are. I think I'd rather have an apple though!
The added vitamins are supposed to be 21% of RDA - there are most of the B vitamins, E, Folic Acid, and also Iron. So if you're having trouble getting the vitamins into the kids, this might be a good lunch box idea. If they eat them.
Still, these are the "own brand" version of the Special K ones. The Special K ones are only 2g bigger, and contain only 2% more fruit, and only 4% less RDA of the vitamins. But you pay an extra 80p per pack. Hmm. Maybe the Special K ones taste a lot better ...
