My oldest daughter sometimes takes a cereal bar to school for her mid morning snack. I am not necessary a fan of cereal bars as a healthy snack, as I think they have a lot of sugar in. (The school classes them as healthy). Whilst doing the supermarket shop I saw these 'Jammie Dodgers snack bar' I thought they would make a nice change as a treat, so I bought a box of 6.

I can't remember how much I paid but probably over £2.
Each cereal bar is 23g and contains 94 calories which is about average for a cereal bar. One also contains 16.2g of carbohydrate of which 7.8g of that is sugar. (just over a third of the bar). The salt content is ok it only contains a trace of sodium, all other nutrients are minimal - i.e. protein 0.7g, fibre 0.8g etc.

The bar itself has crisped rice which a lot of cereal bars have but, running through the middle (like a sandwich) is the 'fruit filling' - just seems like the jam from a jammie dodger biscuit to me. It has the distinct taste of jammie dodger.

The box says 'light, crispy snack bars with biscuit and fruit pieces and a tasty Jammie Dodger fruit filling'. The bar does have red pieces in which might be fruit but I thought it was just more of the jam.
The ingredients mentions fruit pieces and says 7% (but not what they are) and also apple pieces (4%).
I am not going to list all the ingredients as there is too many involved, so if anybody really wants to know they will have to check it out themselves.

The allergy advice is that they contain milk, soya, and gluten (wheat, oats and barley) and may contain sesame seeds.

My daughter would certainly not recommend these (although she does like the biscuits) she says they are horrid and sickly! I only had one bite and they were too sweet and tasted too jammy. I gave my husband one for work and he says they are alriiiiiiiiight! But too sweet for him.

I won't be buying them again as they won't be missed!
