Regular Ready Brek in a different box,
This review is from: Ready Brek Golden Syrup 500 g (Pack of 6) (Grocery)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like Ready Brek and I LOVE Golden Syrup, so all things being equal I should have at least liked, and hopefully loved, this. The reality, unfortunately, didn't quite match my expectations.
You make this in the same way as regular Ready Brek - put 5 heaped dessert spoons of the mix in a microwaveable bowl, add 150ml of milk, mix the stuff then microwave it for 1 ½ minutes, stirring halfway. In texture, this is just the same as regular Ready Brek so if you like that then you'll like this, in fact you probably won't be able to tell them apart. Unlike some other reviewers, I didn't find it too sweet; on the contrary, I could hardly detect the Golden Syrup in it at all. It's there, but in such a small percentage as to be pretty pointless. The Golden Syrup version of Weetabix (by the same company that makes Ready Brek) is a far better proposition if you like a sweet treat first thing in the morning.
This isn't a bad cereal by any means but it's so close to regular Ready Brek as to make it superfluous. By all means enjoy some Golden Syrup with your cereal but do as I have do and add a spoon to your Ready Brek rather than going to the trouble of buying this.
