Weetabix Weetos Bar
Advantages: chocolatey, crunchy, tasty cereal bars
Now I start work earlier in the morning than I used to I find it hard to stomach breakfast before I leave for work so have been trying out different cereal bars recently to allow me to eat something quick and easy when I get to work. Recently when shopping in Asda I spotted the Weetabix, Weeto's chocolate cereal bars on a great special offer and though I would give them a try.
I paid just £0.50 for a box of 5 of the chocolate Weeto's bars which I thought was excellent value as some cereal bars can be rather pricy for what they are.
The cereal bars came packaged in a cardboard box with the 5 bars all individually wrapped inside. On the front of the box is 'Weetos' written in large bubble writing, a picture of one of the cereal bars and it also states that each bar contains just 99 calories. On the back of the box you can find a description of the bars, ingredients listings and nutritional information. The information is also written in several different languages in a side panel on the back of the box too.
The Weetos bars are described on the box as 'delicious chocolatey wheat hoops to create a soft and chewy bar, with an indulgent thick layer of chocolate on the bottom'. As I stated each bar is individually wrapped, the wrapper is quite a thick foil one so keeps the bar nice and fresh as well as protected. This makes the bars ideal for popping in a lunch box or straight in a bag to eat on the go. I find this especially useful as it means I can pop one in my bag in the morning and eat it on my way to work or when I get there.
The nutritional information for a single 20g bar is:
Calories - 99kcal
Protein - 1.2g
Carbohydrate - 14.2g
Fat - 2.9g
Fibre - 0.3g
Sodium - 0.02g
The cereal bar itself is about 6 inch long and domed shaped. You can see all the little Wheeto hoops piled on top of each other and then the smooth milk chocolate underneath. The bar is quite chewy but the Weetos are still nice and crunchy so that combined with the smooth milk chocolate gives a nice contrast in textures. The bars are quite sweet but for me this is a good things as I do like sweeter things in the morning to give me a little sugar/energy boost. Although it seems that the bars might be a little sickly the Weetos are quite subtly flavoured and so most of the chocolatey taste comes from the layer of chocolate on the bottom and you still get quite wheaty, cereal taste from the hoops. Overall I think these are quite a pleasant cereal bar and if I spot them on such a great offer I will certainly purchase them again.
Summary: A great little cereal bar for people on the go.
