Today's Review: Weetabix Banana


Weetabix is a breakfast classic, but even though it is inherently pretty delicious, it is a little plain. You can always take to slicing some fruit and sticking them on top of your wheat biscuits, but now you don't have to bother. Or do you?

See, one of the most popular fruity Weetabix toppers is banana. I've never tried it myself, but Weetabix themselves attempted to save me the effort by bringing out their own banana flavour. Unfortunately I don't think it's truly representative of the proper banana Weetabix experience. "Flavour" is the key word here, as there isn't any actual banana in it at all. So in reality, while there certainly is a banana flavour, it's more like the foam sweetie bananas than the stuff that grows on plants. It's not entirely unpleasant, but it is a little too sweet for my liking. I'd rather just stick to the original Weetabix, and you probably will too. This is interesting for a change, and it tastes okay, but I doubt it'll beat putting actual slices on top. If you ever wanted some pick 'n' mix flavoured Weetabix though, this will be right up your street.

My rating: 3/5

  1. I really like the chocolate weetabix, you should try it if you haven't already. Golden syrup flavour is also delicious but it will taste incredibly sweet if you are used to the normal weetabix, and the normal weetabix will taste incredibly bland if you are used to the golden syrup weetabix.

  3. I was a non-believer but once i tried them, my life has changed. That sweet bananary goodness is a revaluation, once it hits your lips, it's so good!

  6. I bought the Banana flavour Weetabix by mistake when I was in a hurry in the supermarket. Horrible is all I can say, doesn't taste like real Banana. You'd be best allowing a few minutes to slice a real Banana and add it to plain Weetabix, it tastes so much better, and you're getting some fruit!

  7. Disgusting artificial child sweet flavour of banana. Worst thing ever. Had to throw them away.

  8. My entire family consumed Weetabix until the day i found worms in my bowl. We shopped together, picked up couple of boxes from the same rack. And after me, all found worms in their respective boxes.
    One of the things i fear are invertebrates. And when they move, brain turns upside down for someone like me. I can not manage escape paranoia ever since this happened to me. Food is not "suitable for the purpose that the seller conveys to the consumer" if its infested. I wonder how may out there have unknowingly consumed infested Weetabix!
