The biscuits come in handy little packets of four (five packets in each box) which is enough for a good-sized snack or a small replacement breakfast. Each packet comes in a wrapped plastic tub which protects the biscuits well if you're carrying them in your bag.
The biscuits tasted really nice to me, a bit like Garibaldi biscuits, and the fruit was chopped so finely that it wasn't too noticeable and didn't stick in my teeth (which I liked seeing as I am not a huge fan of raisins). They turned into a slightly paste-like texture inside my mouth and I needed a large cup of tea with them - don't have them without a drink! I didn't find that too much of a problem though. They were quite satisfying and kept me hunger-free for a couple of hours.
Compared to most biscuits these are quite healthy, made using wholegrain out flour and wheat flours, and they contain calcium and fibre. However, they do have 9.7 grams of sugar per 4 biscuits, which is around a fifth sugar. This is better than some sugary cereals that contain around a third sugar, and even better than many cereal bars, but it is still not great for your teeth. The amount of sugar would prevent me from buying these as a regular purchase, but if you are not too concerned with your sugar intake then I would recommend them, and I will probably get them occasionally.
They are lower in sugar (under 20%) and taste less sweet than many similar products on the market. The biscuits are slim - c. 5mm thick - so the fruit content is very finely chopped. It's definitely there though, and they do have a pleasant taste of dried fruit, a bit like a Garibaldi biscuit.
As expected, they are high in fibre, nearly 4g per 50g portion, which is almost 2g over the 6g benchmark for a product claiming to be high in fibre. Each biscuit is around 55 calories. They are also vitamin and calcium enriched - generally a tastier choice than many similar products on the market.
Also bear in mind that every time you eat a pack (4 biscuits) you eat nearly 2 teaspoons of sugar (about 1/5 of your RDA if female, 17 if male).
NHS state that more than 22.5g of total sugars per 100g is high, so with 19.3g of sugar per 100g it's safe to say these aren't that healthy. Traditional Weetabix cereal is only 4.4g sugar per 100g, so I think the marketing of these is a bit sneaky as they're trying to imply that they are quite healthy with the calcium and fibre claims, and being tied to the original Weetabix image.
Couldn't really eat enough of them to find out if they're filling enough to have as a breakfast alone. A couple of bites of one biscuit was more than enough to tell me I didn't like them.
I suppose my overall reaction is one of indifference, I am glad I tried them and eat them all, they seemed to grow on me, but I don't think I will buy any.
