that's me. heated for fab price..just in time as my old stock was running low..

oops- i think i just pressed the middle button instead of the heat by mistake.. have i?!

my youngest just loves his weetabix..he won't go for rice krispies, coco pops etc etc...just these.

(strange child.... but i luv h im to bits!!!!!).

will have to stock up thnx heat added.

that's a lot of weetabix

I used to eat about 3 of these everymorning until a few months a go. I used to absolutely love them, I can't even have one spoonful now for some reason!

This matches Tesco's deal a few months back. Very hot!

awesome - i always have 3 if i have a bowl in the morning.

I used to eat 6 every morning, now down to 4 ......talk about being 'regular'!

Need to get some, heat added

Yummy with butter and suger on :-D :oops:

Heat added:thumbsup:

Unless Weetabix are on offer i buy a supermarkets own brand,i have hot milk so i can't tell any difference between them.Tesco sell 48 for 2.15 of their own brand.

However this is a good price for the "real thing":-D

This is one product that is going to be very similar in content regardless of what "brand" is printed on the box.

As Mr Weetabix said himself: "How many different ways can you make a Weetabix?" :-D

Not in Wolves...

oooo, thanks for this, ill have a looksie in my asda later, my boys eats weetabix every morning and its so darn expensive lol :lol:

Tesco. Not the value ones. £1.06 / £2.15 for 24/48 IIRC. Compare the ingredients and the nutritional values

Read the nutrional values of both and you will see the difference
All own brand produc ts(regardless of how similar they seem) are different
I used to eat tesco own brand weetabix until I went on a diet and read the sugar and salt that they add

HOT DEAL!!

Great Price. Nothing like have weetabix to get those bowles moving during Ramadhan lol

I've got Tescos own at the moment,it says 2 with 125ml of semi skimmed milk contains 7.7g of sugar and 0.4g of salt

Is that high compared to the "real" Weetabix,i've no idea,doesn't seem a lot to me:?

There's hardly any difference though,its a negligible amount.

That's my point... the differences are just red for ease of spotting.

This is what Mr Weetabix was getting at ;-), he "tweaks" the "recipe" just enough to differentiate between the different marketing variants of what are essentially the same product. In the above, we can clearly see that for the Tesco own-brand he has chosen to omit the vitamin designation of the chemical compounds thiamin and riboflavin - maybe added an extra grain of salt too :-D

They don't even sell the 72 ones at the store in Bletchley and that is a massive store.

Hope it reaches 1000+, great deal and just in time for new term. Thanks for posting!

This is hilarious - I will have to try this too!

Dunno about you, but I simply cannot eat anything at sehri. 2 glasses of water, or ten' toast when staying at mums is all I can manage - but sounds promising and will try! RM Majnu

Not in my local store (Rugby) - they only stock 24s and 48s, at £1.78 and £3.32 respectively. Good deal for those that can get it though!

I cannot tell the difference between Ald, Morrisons and regular weetabix. Lidl own brand...Yukk!

If I remember correctly tesco weetabix are great too.

If you take into account the variances in the quantities due to the manufacturing process and natural variance in the consistency of the actual ingredients together with the expected inaccuracies in the laboratory testing of the products, not to mention rounding errors and suchlike, it would be reasonable to assume that these are one in the same product. In fact, its amazing that the results from the two independent samples correlate so well. So, safe to say that, from a nutritional point of view at least, Tesco's own-brand Weetabix is the "real thing". :thumbsup:

Need to find a Lidl's sample now that has been scientifically analysed to see how the numbers stack up. :-D

Monster Packet. I eat around 200g's a day so will sort me for alittle. Part of my 5 a day, if I eat 2 or 3 I only need to eat an apple and banana and I'm done. Oh yes, thinking outside the box at its box. HA.

Regarding taste difference, I really, really recommend trying the Weetabix Organic version. The difference is massive for me (I eat with cold milk), the biggest difference being that the organic version is crisper and far less "cardboardy". After eating the normal Weetabix for some years (won't deny it's good) and now having tried the organic, I'll never be going back to the original having tasted the organic, as it's miles apart.

And just in case someone posts it, I'm not an organic nut. There's nothing else I'll have in my diet that's organic, as I don't really believe there's enough taste difference in e.g. the vegetables/fruit/etc to justify the extortionate price (and often ridiculously small portions). Weetabix Organic is the only exception.

Not in all supermarkets either. Tends to be in the bigger supermarket outlets that are out of town. Costs around £2.70 for 24, which isn't cheap, but try it and see if you find enough of a difference to justify the extra 50p on the standard price. It's a big yes for me.

This deal itself is amazing for the standard version. Heat/rep added.
