Sanitarium Gluten Free Weet-Bix Review
For those of you that have to miss out on regular Sanitarium Weet-Bix as you can no longer eat gluten, be sad no more! Sanitarium Gluten Free Weet-Bix are now available and they are delicious!! I have had them for breakfast several days straight since a friend of mine kindly purchased me a box the day they arrived on the shelf at one of our local supermarkets. This is my Gluten Free Weetbix review… What do you think? Share your thoughts via the comments box at the bottom of this post!
I have been waiting approximately eight years to taste Weet-Bix again! Like many Aussie kids, my brothers and I ate Weet-Bix for breakfast several days a week as we were growing up. Sadly, I had to give up Weet-Bix when my gluten-free diet began back in 2006. I squealed with delight last week when I came home from work to my box of Gluten Free Weet-Bix my friend had dropped around. Sure, it was dinner time, but I immediately opened the box and tried one!
In a nutshell, this is my Gluten Free Weet-Bix review:
– appearance: Gluten Free Weet-Bix are remarkably similar in appearance to regular Weet-Bix, and if I remember correctly, seem to be a little darker in appearance to regular Weet-Bix
– texture: Gluten Free Weet-Bix are very dry and flaky once broken apart with a spoon, just like regular Weet-Bix
– taste: Perhaps the most important factor! To me, having not eaten any sort of Weet-Bix for eight years, the first mouthful of my Gluten Free Weet-Bix took me straight back to my childhood! Yum! I need to get my non-GF husband to try a regular Weet-Bix, followed by a Gluten Free one, to see if he thinks they are any different! To me, Gluten Free Weet-Bix taste just like regular Weet-Bix did to me as a kid.
– price: My friend managed to pick up my first box at Coles on sale for $3.99, which was 20% off as an introductory offer.
– value for money: With 24 “breakfast biscuits” per (cute little) box, I think in terms of gluten-free cereal (which is so often overpriced!), they are quite reasonable value for money. For me, that’s 12 breakfast serves (when eaten with a banana and low-fat milk, as well).
You may also be keen to know the ingredients in this product (I know I was very curious!). Sanitarium Gluten Free Weet-Bix are made from wholegrain sorghum, golden syrup, salt, vitamins (niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, folate) and mineral (iron). You will also be pleased to know that Gluten Free Weet-Bix are produced in a separate factory to regular Weet-Bix, should you be concerned about cross-contamination. Gluten Free Weet-Bix have also been endorsed by Coeliac Australia and N.Z, yay! For more information on this product, check out the below link to Sanitarium’s website:
So, my overall verdict is:
I LOVE Sanitarium Gluten-Free Weet-Bix and I would highly recommend this product!
