Equivalent price for 48 is £1.44, the best price for most "own brands" for 48 is around the £2.15 mark.

I know, but check this out, some people have [COLOR="Red"]loads[/COLOR] of time on their hands....:w00t::w00t:

[COLOR="Blue"][INDENT]Advantages: delicious, versatile, healthy

Disadvantages: None!

If it were nutritionally advised, I'd me more than happy to live on a diet of nothing more than yoghurts, and weetabix. I eat my way through so much that it's almost unreal. When you do end up enjoying as much bowls of weetabix as I do, you start to feel the strain with the price. That's when I set out looking for an alternative, and came across Asda's own version, Wheat Bisks.

Wheat Bisks look like little bricks, and are made from wholegrain. If I'm honest, they don't look incredibly exciting; they're a dull shade of brown and look quite rough and crumbly. But if you open up your mind and let your fun side take over, they really can be something of amazement!

There are many ways to enjoy Wheat Bisks, there's bound to be something to suit you. There is one way I enjoy them the most. With two Wheat Bisks sitting in the bowl, I like to pour over boiling water so they go soggy. As I do so and give it a little mix, the bran aroma that fills the air is magnificent. It's not a sensible idea to take a big scoop straight away, as you'll find it's a little hot. Though you do not need to wait too long! When the mix has cooled down slightly, you are ready to tuck in. The taste is phenomenal. It's slightly bitter and has an interesting, soft texture. Although I eat my Wheat Bisks this way all year round, you'll find it more beneficial in the colder months of the year, sending a warming sensation right though you!

Of course, you can eat them the way suggested, pouring milk over them. After a few minutes, the chilled milk has absorbed into the Bisks, you'll find it has softened up a little, but does not turn too soggy. If you mush it up slightly with a spoon, the rough texture has disappeared completely, and you are left with a soft meal. This does not give off any great aroma, compared to the delicious smell with the water combination, though the taste is quite appealing. It's much sweeter with milk (I use skimmed, and that's sweet enough!), but the bran flavour is not as rich. I don't tend to eat it this way much now, but I wont deny its delicious flavour!

I don't mind eating Wheat Bisks on their own, but some people can find this a bit too bland, and like adding other foods into it. The first thing I find a joy to go with it is, of course, the yoghurt. Once you've prepared your Bisks, its quite simple to slop on some creamy yoghurt on top. You can use natural or Greek for a slightly more plain or bitter taste, but flavoured yoghurts go down a treat too. You can either spoon in some from a large pot, or buy little yoghurts and slop on the whole pot. I tend to find that the Weight Watchers yoghurts are ideal for this, 120g a piece, and come in such a variety of flavours that each bowl is unique. My most preferred flavours are the strawberry, cherry and the vanilla options. They all provide a cooling and refreshing scrumptious experience.

If you're not a fan of yoghurt, you could always try adding fruit or nuts with your Bisks. Chopping up a banana is a good method to gain a portion of fruit with your meal, or pouring on a cup of raspberries and chopped strawberries for a summer sensation. My favourite fruit to mix through however are raisins; they're incredibly delicious and a good source of fibre too! Try almonds too, though this will taste better if you serve up some natural yoghurt with it too.

I've quite recently found another interesting way to enjoy Wheat Bisks too. Though, this way works best later on in the day, and with the hot water too. When you've served up the Bisks, sprinkle on some hot chocolate powder for a sweet and tempting treat. Any flavour would work, most specifically normal hot chocolate, though I prefer to use Cadburys Highlights Fudge hot chocolate powder. Mixing in through, you'll find the chocolate hit lasts throughout. Of course, if you fancy a sweeter meal but are not fond of chocolate, you can always sprinkle sugar across the top, though personally I find this repugnant.

To give further variety in taste and texture, you may wish to try other cereal products on top of your Bisks. Pouring over a cup of muesli can provide a healthy breakfast with an interesting fruity experience. You may wish to experiment with other cereal options too - with such a variety out there, the possibilities are endless!

Although the Wheat Bisks are generally aimed at breakfast time, I do enjoy it throughout the day. It can make a tasty dessert if you serve it dry, or with a tiny amount of milk, and scoop on some ice cream. As the Bisks have such a basic taste, any flavour that takes your fancy will work, though strawberry tends to be a winner with me!

Wheat Bisks are so versatile, but the positives do not end there! These are incredibly healthy. Each Bisk (19g) contains just short of 65 calories, and no more than 0.9g sugars. It's almost fat-free, with less than 0.4g per Bisk. It's recommended that we get around 24g of fibre a day, and these will help you along the way, each Bisk containing 1.9g of your daily intake. The fibre will provide you with a healthier digestive system, and leaves you feeling more full (always a benefit to prevent further snacking). These are good to help you keep a healthy heart, and contain extra vitamins and iron.

*Warning - these contain gluten, wheat and barley!

Who are Wheat Bisks aimed at? These are suitable for the whole family, which makes meal times so much easier! They're a nice soft food for babies and toddlers, and for the golden oldies that have their false teeth to consider (or anybody else with dentures for that matter). It's a great way for busy mums or hard-workers to start the day, provided them with the energy required to last throughout the morning! If you've got a gruelling day of education ahead of you, devour a bowl for breakfast too - your brain will need the fuel to survive! Everybody can enjoy the fantastic taste of Wheat Bisks, whether they choose to eat them on their own or coated in delicious topping and treats!

So how do Wheat Bisks compare to normal Weetabix? Both bricks are about the same size, so you are not losing out on anything there! Their scents are quite similar too, though I find the bran aroma to be stronger on the Wheat Bisks. As for the all important taste, again there is no real difference! So I guess it all boils down to nutrition...the calories, sugar and fat levels are all the same, given a point of a difference either way. Even the levels of fibre in each brick are identical. Both contain vitamins and iron too, so the health benefits are pretty much identical!

The only real difference between Wheat Bisks and Weetabix, other than the designs on the front of the cardboard packaging, is the price. There is actually quite a difference in the price in the long run, especially if you end up going through box after box! How do they compare though?

24-pack Weetabix - £1.78 (7.4p each)
24-pack Wheat Bisks - £1.15 (4.8p each)
48-pack Weetabix - £3.22 (6.7p each)
48-pack Wheat Bisks - £2.15 (4.5p each)

As you can see, there is actually quite a big price difference! I cannot see the point in splashing out on a box of Weetabix, when I can find just as much pleasure from Asda's cheaper version!


Wheat Bicks are a delicious, healthy and versatile food - enjoy a bowl any time, any way! Just be careful you don't get yourself addicted like I have! [/INDENT][/COLOR]

thought they were £2.15 for 48?

have a friend who used to be the cereals buyer for a well known (US owned supermarket chain here in the UK) - apparently it would take the cereal maker more time to change their line and so lost profits, if they changed the recipe, so the own-brand and premium brand stuff is the same - easy way to tell is to look at the calorie / sugar etc. content - they will be exactly the same if the recipe is unchanged - I believe that for Asda brand this is the case

WTF:w00t: I think what they are trying to say is they are like Weetabix but cheaper and from asda and they like them...... Freak:-D
#9
ive been getting the ones from tescos
called tesco value wheat biscuits box of 36 for 77p i think they are
not bought any for a few months though
hit n miss whether thay have them in stock or not as they are pretty popular
so you can get 72 for £1.44 thats only 2.14p per buscuit
#10
These are made by Weetabix, and repackaged for sale by ASDA. They told us that in our induction training (work there during term holidays). They also said ASDA own-brand batteries were made by energizer!
#11
Any weetabix which are that shape are made by that weetabix. Weetabix trademarked their shape, (the rounded courners) so no one else is allowed to use it, so if its that shape and its manufactured by them.

soled73
thought they were £2.15 for 48?


Probably, but they do a cheap 24 pack.
Tesco ones are good.
#13
Wheat Bisks ?,how much are Forn Clakes ?.
#14
The person who wrote that essay of a review about a cereal really, really needs a hobby.
#15
Thanks OP :thumbsup:
#16
after trying almost all the supermarket brands like tesco, sains, aldi in my opinion Asda's are the best tasting.
#17
Good deal, but if you go to Asda make sure you pick up these and not Sunny Bisk.
#18

Good deal, but if you go to Asda make sure you pick up these and not Sunny Bisk.

#19
Still available, and the 48 box has been reduced to £1.97, not bad but not as good as buying two of these.
