Love the taste, hate the way they crumble apart
I have been a big supporter of VitaBrits, however during this coronavirus period people had wiped the shelves clean of this product and I resorted to the only other alternative available at the time. The Aldi brand. At first I disliked its taste (clearly less salt), but what I grew to love about it was the one thing I most hated about VB. These biscuits are actually packed reasonably tightly and hold together even in milk, unlike VB which fall apart in your hand as you pull them from the package. After many years of loyalty, it is time for me to move on to what I believe is a better product. Get your act together UT, make up your mind if you're going to provide a properly packed brick or a box of flakes.
Better than wheat bix. Much better, No sugar. Not mushy. I am a big fan of this cereal. You get such good value for money compared to other cereals. A big heavy box compared to other cereals that have a similar size box but half the weight and much more sugar. Takes me ages to finish a box.
Purchased in August 2019.
Top notch for a healthy Brekkie
Consistent product. Doesn't need added sugar - can simply add milk or yogurt and you have a good start to your day. Adding berries makes it perfect. It goes with most any other fruit. The kids like it with choccy milk, but that's a bit too sweet for my tastes.
Superior to the 'bix product.
5 a day, keeps the cancer away.
I have eaten 5 Vita Brits each morning since I was a teenager. Except for a few years ago when I was able to get low cost cooked breakfasts like bacon and eggs. I put on weight and started to get sick with flu a couple of times each year. Started reading about gut health and realised that I was starving my healthy gut bacteria of high fibre, that they need to power up the mitacondria in their cells. Switched back to '5 a day' and I haven't had a flu since. Seriously Folks. Vita Brits will definitely help your Gut Health and a healthy gut will go a long way to keeping you healthy. Thank you for reading my comment. Cheers
Vita Brits are the best ever!
I have been eating Vita Brits since I was a child. The flavour is perfect, nutritional with many healthy benefits. My record is 18 Bricks on my 18th birthday... plenty of milk as well. Love them so much it gets me out of bed each morning. I have been known to have them as an evening meal!
Something has happened to Vita Brits
I have been having Vita Brits for breakfast for decades and it has been very consistent in its quality. Until now. The biscuits have become very inconsistent in size, some are normal thickness but a lot are very thin. I find myself hunting through the pack to find the ones I want and I'm on the point of finding something else for breakfast. Is there some reason for this inconsistency in size?
First defective pack this week
I have been eating Vita Brits for years and this week my first disappointment. Packet not sealed properly - it's obviously a production line malfunction. If the quality control guys are reading this - the product is labelled 03Sep201705:45 62833607A1. Anyway, Vita Brits tastes so much better than similar products (other brands) - so I will be sticking with it - I do add a little sugar though.
Every day for eight years straight - Uncle Tobys Vita Brits
When I was just a small boy I would have 3 or 4 Sanitarium Weet-Bix for breakfast, I probably did this up until I was about 10 y.o. Then my breakfast routine changed to toast, and then to cooked breakfasts of eggs and bacon etc. Several years ago I regained the desire for cereal and re-tried my old favourite Weet-Bix, but it wasn't the same. I tried 2 or 3 different types of "bix" before settling on this outstanding product - Uncle Tobys Vita Brits. Their taste and wholegrain nutritional value is addictive (in a good way), and I happily look fo...rward to 5 of them every morning with Liddells Lactose Free Milk. Amazingly, I have not tired of this Vita Brit breakfast in this lengthy time period and I truly doubt that I ever will, as I still do not see another product on the shelves that gives me the feeling that it would be a suitable replacement for Vita Brits. Wonderful product. Superb taste and wholegrain goodness
Questions & Answers
I would like to know the levels of glyphosate (weed killer) in 100g of each product from Uncle Tobey, not whether is above or below Australian standards please? Recent published literature has me concerned, I am looking for a cereal with the lowest number hopefully helping me to make a healthy choice.
Why have Vita Brits lately have hard bits of seed in them?? I am about to find another cereal before i break my plastic dentures on the hard seeds,it will be a sad day as i only like Vita Brits.consistency in the thickness of the biscuits would also be an advantage if the hard seeds can be removed.
