I'm not normally a fan of cereal bars unless they come in a box with the words 'chocolate', 'chip' and 'Tracker' on it, but I do like Alpen, not to mention chocolate, so I thought I would give these a go. The bars are quite a good size - about the size of a small bar of chocolate - and they look appealing, although if you're going by the picture on the box, the amount of chocolate on the bar is going to be a bit of a let down. They are very light though; some cereal bars are quite dense, but these are - appropriately enough, I suppose - of the 'more holes than Swiss cheese' variety, and given that the main ingredient appears to be rice crispies, I'd estimate ...

At the moment, I'm going through a stage where I need a little snack mid-morning just to get me through to lunch-time. Instead of reaching straight for the crisps and chocolate which I would find very easy, I have been buying boxes of cereal bars to take with me to work. This week's box is Alpen Fruit and Nut with Milk Chocolate. In the days where I didn't really eat breakfast, I used to grab one of these Alpen bars on the way to work instead. So, I decided to have a change from my usual Special K bars and stuck these on to this week's Tesco order, just to see if I still like them. The multipack box contains five bars - it is a fairly flat cardboard box, not ... Read the complete review

I'm dieting (you may already be bored of hearing about this, sorry, there is more to come, stay tuned for exciting ryvita and cottage cheese reviews....) so I am looking for healthier options. More fruit and vegetables, more grains, less fat, sugar and unfortunately less chocolate. Alpen bars are one of a whole range of cereal bars that try to tempt us into eating snacks by massaging our conscience. It is whole grain, apparently, and suitable for any time of day! (I do hate those snacks that can only be eaten at 11.25 on a Wednesday, don't you?) I've tried a few bars, including "Oats and More", "Tracker" and some own brand ones, and most of ...

Ok reviewing a food product that isn't chocolate, well ok it contains a little bit of chocolate, well the bottom half is coated in chocolate, Ok I admit it, I'm a chocoholic. I occasionally get a bit peckish around 11am and I'm often reaching for a chocolate bar or a few biscuits etc. I decided I needed something that was a bit more filling and perhaps slightly better for me with the emphasis on the slightly. I was aimlessly wondering round my local tesco direct when I saw these. Now I'm normally a "Kellogg's' chocolate chip elevenses bar" man but these caught my eye and decided to give them a go. They cost me £1.39 for a box of 5 bars which wasn't ... Read the complete review

I tend not to buy treats in multipacks mainly because they're too much of a temptation once opened but having recently seen these advertised sponsoring 'Grey's Anatomy' I thought I'd check these out. My local supermarket had 5 varieties for sale, 2 'normal' and 3 'light' ones. As I like fruit, nut and chocolate the Alpen Fruit and Nut with Chocolate seemed the obvious choice. They are made in England by Weetabix and say ' they have been creating their 'Alpen' recipes for nearly 40 years'. They come in a slender recyclable box with a brown 'alpine' scene; different to that pictured above. There are 5 x 29g bars in each box priced at ... Read the complete review
