Kelloggs Special K Biscuit Moments review

Eating healthily and trying to lose weight doesn't mean you have to give up all sweet treats - on the contrary, in fact, because if you do, you'll just make those sugar cravings get worse and end up eating a whole family sized bar of chocolate rather than just a small amount when you first start wanting some ! But the key is checking the labels and choosing the lightest option available that is still tasty and satisfying enough to calm your hunger pangs and any desire for an indulgent treat.

When BritMums said that Special K were looking for people who'd like to try out some of their new Biscuit Moments, I jumped at the chance, eager to try out a diet-friendly biscuit, but wasn't really expecting it to be very nice, to be honest. Well, I was way off the mark there - they're totally delicious.

A box contains 5 foil packs, each containing two biscuits. Unlike many supposedly diet-friendly brands that contain several biscuits in an individual serving pack but give you the calorie count per biscuit in large print on the box, Special K don't mess you around, giving the calorie count per 2-biscuit pack - an incredibly low 98 calories for 2 x 12.5g biscuits. (I've just calculated the ProPoints - 3 ProPoints for the 2 biscuit pack, for anyone doing WeightWatchers.)

The biscuits themselves are lovely -  they're light and crispy and crumble in your mouth but don't fall apart before they reach your mouth. They're filled with a thin layer of jam and drizzled with a vanilla frosting. They're perfect for when you want a sweet treat that won't sabotage your efforts to eat healthily and lose weight.

Each 25g pack contains 8g of sugars, 2g of fat (of which 0.8g saturates) and 0.19g of salt. They also come in Blueberry flavour, which jumped in my trolley at the supermarket, and they're lovely too.

star rating : 4.5/5

RRP : £1.99 for a box of 5 x 2-biscuit packs

Disclosure : I received 6 boxes of biscuits in order to write an honest review.
