WeightWatchers Fruit Crumble Biscuits review

Having never tried any of the WeightWatchers biscuit range, I have to admit that I was expecting a rather inferior quality biscuit when we were offered a box to review. When a couple of packs of WeightWatchers Fruit Crumble Biscuits popped through the letterbox, I was pleasantly surprised by the picture on the box but figured it had to have been photoshopped to make it look better ! But no, WeightWatchers really have come up with a range of biscuits that are as good as the non-healthy eating ones I usually indulge in.

Each biscuit, which is individually wrapped so it's perfect for slipping in your handbag or office drawer for a mid-afternoon snack that is low in calories (and a much better option than anything trying to attract your attention in the chocolate machine !), is a long crumbly biscuit base, topped with lovely gooey, fruity jam and sprinkled with crunchy crumbs. The jam is lovely and sweet and has a really pleasant fruity flavour so it's great for dealing with any cravings you may have for sugary things. Each bar, which weighs 22.5g, is bigger than a normal biscuit - it's slightly smaller than a typical cereal bar - so one is plenty as a snack and you still feel like you've had a naughty treat. Usually I'd go back to a pack of biscuits for a second one but the individual wrapping put me off doing this which is great news for your waistline.

Each biscuit contains 89 calories, 10.2g of sugars, 2.4g of fat, 1.2g of saturates and 0.1g of salt. If you are following the WeightWatchers ProPoints system, one biscuit counts for 2 points - but even if you're not, they're a great snack to enjoy that's not too heavy on the calories.

They come in two flavours - Apple, Blueberry & Raspberry and Apple, Apricot & Peach. We tried both and they got a huge thumbs up, even from the kids, which just goes to show that they taste lovely even when you don't take the WeightWatchers brand into account !

Don't write them off as inferior-quality diet food. Even if you're not watching your waistline, they're delicious.
