Have you had your Weetabix? No? Holy crap, how are you going to make it through the day? Fear not, because although you certainly can't whip up a bowl of your favourite wheat biscuits on the morning commute, you can now pick up a bottle of the new Weetabix breakfast drink. It boasts all the protein, fibre and energy (read: calories) of your regular bowl of Weetabix, but in drink form.
It may sound odd, but I was hoping that these would taste exactly like soggy Weetabix. While I certainly am quite fussy with my cereal sogginess, Weetabix is the one breakfast food that I enjoy more in its mushed up state. If someone were to give me a bottle of Weetabix sludge, I'd gladly gulp it down, and I secretly hoped that these bottles would provide that.
Fortunately, they do actually have a nice wheaty texture to them. They're flavoured drinks though, and the sweet vanilla and strawberry taste a little artificial, making the whole experience akin to a milkshake, but these little bottles are actually quite filling. It's sort of like putting a Weetabix in a blender with a milkshake and churning it all up. Tasty, and a nice substitute for breakfast, but not perfect.
My rating: 4/5
