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.
On opening, I could see that the biscuits were in four separate packs, doubtless to provide the sustenance equivalent to a missing breakfast. I therefore unwrapped a pack, made myself a cup of tea and settled at my office desk to test them. I barely got through one biscuit before concluding that this was not an experience that I wished to repeat. The first thing to hit me was the intense and unpleasantly obvious sugary taste couched in a dry fibrous biscuit base and, frankly, I was put off entirely. I grimly munched through the remainder and then, in case I was being fussy, offered one to a colleague. He took a bite, shook his head and declined to finish it. Uncharitably, I thought that the product reminded me of dog biscuits that I had once sampled (and preferred by comparison) and decided to declare the experience a gastronomic failure.
I have given the biscuits two stars because I am a little fussy and eschew very sweet food. Perhaps another customer may well find them delicious and nutritious and I would not like to put them off as they contain an impressive array of nutrients. In the meantime, it is back to porridge.
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.
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.
Each box contains five packets containing four biscuits, which are packaged inside the cardboard box in a plastic container to help prevent the biscuits breaking in transit. This is a plus, as I don’t recall any other brand that has a similar inner container. The biscuits are rather dark, almost burnt looking, and are a quite hard and not particularly crumbly. I found the taste to be a little too sweet for my liking and whilst the fibre was much in evidence I didn’t detect that much of a taste of fruit.
Overall I was disappointed by these Breakfast Biscuits and would have to say that they are not as good as many rival products that I have sampled previously.
I don’t think that I will be choosing Weetabix Fruit and Fibre again.

This is actually a nice biscuit that tastes very wholesome and tides you over to the next meal. It is slightly dry but the flavour is very evident especially on moistening through... Read morePublished on 17 April 2014 by Jack Chakotay

This is a tasty, if dry snack. Nice biscuits. Good for on the go, I suppose, if you;re in an extreme hurry. It’s not something I’d want to have everyday, though. Read morePublished on 14 Mar. 2014 by 420
I thought I'd love these and that they'd taste a bit like those a digestive biscuit with fruit in but I don't really like these at all. I could hardly finish even one biscuit. Read morePublished on 12 Mar. 2014 by Skelf
Firstly, these biscuits look good with “Weetabix” raised in profile on the top, however I have to say that both I and my wife found them unappetising, she actually threw hers away! Read morePublished on 6 Mar. 2014 by Les Williams
If you like Weetabix you may like these as a snack when you're out and about. They are reasonably palatable, though dry, so you certainly need a drink to accompany them. Read morePublished on 5 Mar. 2014 by JustMe
