Weet Bix 1 kg Breakfast Cereal

published

Sanitarium- shame on you. Price up by one Dollar- no argument on the kg pack-as price held for years- problem be that Quality has dropped as well in a few aspects i have noted- 1/ Biscuits fall apart on contact 2/ Husks now in them where there were never any- and have been using them for years and lastly, 3/ Black specs in them, which never have been-never have i had to pick out a spec and examine it to see that a bug hadn't found it . Suggestion= resume the quality AND keep the accountants away from the Kitchen!

Purchased in August 2019 at Woolworths for $5.00.

What a shame...

published

I agree with the other complaints that Weet bix has become crumbly. They have become less dense & thinner and are impossible to cut now. I’ll try other product to see if better.

Purchased in June 2019 at Coles.

No more Truckies scone

published

Used to be able to put Jam & Cream on when out on the road but now the cheap ones keep falling apart.
Will have to try Aldi to see if they hold together

Purchased in March 2019.

weetbix, forget it !

published

Weetbix has gone backwards because of the almighty dollar. Packaging, breaking up, thinner, and less per packet
One used to be able to butter and add vegemite. Now just falls apart.. I am now looking for a better product !

Biscuits are crumbling in the box

published

I have noticed that lately the weetbix are crumbling. What is going on? First the change to an inferior packaging and now the product itself is deteriorating. I have eaten Weetbix all my life and I am now 62. Might have to try another brand. That is sad

Why do they taste like plastic

published

They are absorbing the plastic and taste unbearable. I did like them but cannot anymore.
Hope the packaging changes.


Broken brekky

published

We travel the country in our van, bought Weet-nix in many towns. The common issue is how the bikkies are broken on opening every new box. Bikkies not holding together. Cannot use as bikkies with butter and jam. They have shrunk in size. Very disappointed with the current product but still taste good. May have to try alternatives.

Good all day

Like to eat these with added milo or warm them up in the microwave with a bit of honey is the best.

Great as breakfast or snack

published

Weetbix is high in fibre and iron so it's a healthy option as both breakfast and snack. However, this tastes bland but that's because it's mostly wheat (although there is some sugar in there but definitely not as much compared to other breakfast cereals).

Healthy, filling

published

A good canvas to add whatever you want. Now, if only it wasn’t made by a Christian company it would be perfect.

A healthy food

published

I like eating healthy and I eat a bowl of weetbix with milk and bluberries for breakfast. But my only worry is, I think I am not absorbing the iron in weetbix because of the milk and berries. Any better options?

This one is really good

published

it is convenient to eat,save time,I always eat it in the morning when I have early class. and it have nutritions.


Perfect to end my suffering

published

I eat on average 40 weetbix a day, they are a perfect cereal to fill the void created by your divorce and crappy 9-5. I love sitting down at night and chowing down on some bikkies after spending 8 hours at the canning factory where i constantly want to end my suffering. Don't see a doctor, just get weetbix.

Have 6 everyday! Great for your health and taste great! Would definitely recommend to any person that enjoys breakfast :)

Biscuits now fall apart

published

I have eaten Weetbix for over 60 years. Still like the taste but now looking for alternatives because they just fall apart in the box. Short cuts in manufacturing I suspect. Perhaps they don't care about the local market now that they sell well overseas.

A National Favourite Breakfast.

published

This Brand name has always been a quality Australian product, lately part of the boxed contents are like added broken sweepings. It is found in most boxes.Obviously not from external handling. Should be addressed before it affects their sales.

Weetbix blends not great - advertising and marketing atrocious

published

I love plain weetbix. Having some reality show nobodies market the new blends range is SO OUT OF TOUCH for Sanitarium. They obviously have no idea. No weetbix blends ever!


Excellent tasty and healthy choice.

published

Doesn't like most cereal, it's not sweet. But the taste of grain goes perfectly with milk and fruit. What is more, its high in iron, especially good breakfast for woman.
For people with iron deficiency like me should still eat a little more red meat as is advised by my GP, as animal source iron would be better absord. However, plant source iron is also a good supplement for diet.

Much better for you than most other cereals. 2-3 biscuits per sedentary adult would be adequate. Perhaps even 6 or 8 for an adult with very high activity.
