---Why I Bought This---
I cannot function until I have had some breakfast cereal and a cup of tea to get me going.
During the colder winter months (and still now in May!) I enjoy cereal with hot milk. I cannot be bothered to make porridge first thing in the morning but I like having wheat biscuits or shredded wheat as a filling start to the day as they are quick to prepare. I tend to buy whichever seems to be on offer at the time.---The Brand---
Made by Nestles. Shredded Wheat ws invented in the USA in the 19th century and has been a long standing breakfast cereal in Britain.---The Product---
750 gram box of Bitesize.
Blue box with image of cereal in a red heart shaped bowl on the front.
The box has the green 'WHOLE GRAIN GUARANTED!' banner across the top
A serving suggestion on the bottom of the front of the box is to have it with fresh strawberries.
Salt free and high in fibre.
A 40 gram serving has 148 calories - the box contains 18 such servings.
Made from 100% British whole grain wheat.
The side of the box shows other variaties - Bitesize Superfruities - with either a blackcurrent or strawberry centre.
Inside the box is a white plasticy bag which contains mini shredded wheat - about an inch in size.---Cost---
£2.99 for 750 grams at Tesco.---My Opinion---
I have always been a fan of the original Weetabix and Shredded Wheat.
I do not want to bother trying the newer versions with other flavours added, but I do not mind buying these Bitesize Shreded Wheat as they are exactly the same as the original larger bisuits - only of course smaller!
These made a very healthy breakfast as they have absolutely NOTHING added to them - so it is up to you whether you add sugar or not. I like to add just about half a teaspoonful, not to make it too sweet but just to add a litle sweetness. I also like using hot milk - or if in a hurry I will pour over a tiny bit of hot water to soak into the pieces and then top up with cold milk - either semi skimmed or soya.
They have a good wheaty flavour and are very filling and help to stop you wanting a 'bad' mid-morning snack.
I do not mind which size of Shredded Wheat I buy, shopping online with Tesco I tend to go for whatever is on offer.
I have noticed that Tesco make what they call 'Wheat Pillows' - in effect the same as the large Shredded Wheat - so I will have to give those a try too to compare.---Star Rating---
5 stars.---Would I Recommend?---
