everyone knows that breakfast is 'the most important meal of the day' but if you're anything like me you’ll barely have time to sit down and enjoy it mid-week whilst rushing to get ready for work! More often than not I end up just having a smoothie or protein shake on the train, or sometimes I skip it out altogether (I know, I know….slap my wrists!)
I’d heard a lot about Belvita breakfast biscuits from the recent ad campaign with Lisa Snowden so when their press team got in touch to ask if I’d like to try the new Cocoa & Live Yogurt Crunch variety, I jumped at the chance! This new variety consists of a layer of creamy live yogurt sandwiched between two crunchy cocoa biscuits and the science behind what makes them great is that they are scientifically proven to release carbohydrates over four hours, helping to keep you full up till lunch.
I have to say I was really impressed with the breakfast biscuits – they had a nice crunchy texture, I was expecting them to be a bit limp so I was pleased that they had a bit of bite to them! The creamy layer was also pleasantly surprising, it has a sweet almost coconut taste to it which works well with the chocolate biscuits which aren’t overpowering in the slightest! Whilst they won’t be replacing my leisurely weekend brunches, I will definitely be buying these for when I need something handy on the go – and at only 112 calories per biscuit they’re great to have in your handbag when I need something nutritious whilst dashing out the house to jump on the train!
Belvita Breakfast biscuits are now available in 13 flavours including Fruit & Fibre, Forest Fruits and Cranberrry. If you fancy giving them a try, they are available in store now from Tesco priced £2.79.
