Another day, another quintessential Australian brekkie food.
Any food from the brand Sanitarium seems a little worrying, but fear not. Weet-Bix, the brand’s main sell, is marketed as a health food (as illustrated by the 5-star health rating on the box). High is fibre and low in sugar, the cereal biscuits are a favorite in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the UK.
The size is a bit strange to me. It’s weird to put 2 pieces of cereal in a bowl for a meal.
The dry texture is a bit like corrugated cardboard, but the taste is like any wheat-based cereal. However, it would be hard to choke down an entire bikkie dry.
I fixed mine spread with peanut butter and topped with bananas to add some creamy texture to cut the dryness. They were a much more enjoyable eating experience with these additions, but what wouldn’t be?
Overall, I see Weet-Bix as a good base (more like toast) rather than a cereal for brekkie.
