Review of belVita Breakfast Biscuits

I’m a snacker  -- especially in the morning.  Because I have a sweet tooth, but I tire of cereals and bars, I was happy to try the new belVita breakfast biscuits from Kraft Foods.  They come in three flavors, and you get four bars in each package!

The first thing I loved about these little biscuits is that they tasted like wafer-thin cookies.  They were very sweet, but had a nice nutty grain flavor.  I felt very full after eating them, and in most cases, I only had 2 or 3 (and then gave the fourth to one of the kids.)   They are actually designed to be eaten with fruit or yogurt for a complete breakfast, but I almost always didn’t have room for the additional item, and instead saved it for a mid-morning snack.

Here is some additional info on the product:

  • Contains no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, and no artificial flavors or sweeteners
  • Each individual package of four crunchy biscuits is portioned for breakfast and contains 18-20g whole grains per serving and is a good source of fiber and four B vitamins.
These are extremely portable, and I tuck one or two packages into my carry-on whenever I fly or in the baby’s diaper bag.  I have found myself without something to eat on several occasions, and these were a delicious lifesaver!  (The only negative of this product?  They crumble up too easily in my bag; the crumbs, however, are delish.)

What was my favorite flavor?  At first, I was hooked on the Golden Oat and ate those consistently.  Then, I moved on to trying the Blueberry and Apple Cinnamon varieties.  Both of the fruit belVitas were good, with the blueberry having tiny little dried blueberry pieces throughout, and the apple one having crispy apple bits.  (Even though I used to not like blueberries, I really enjoyed both of the fruits!)

I really don’t subscribe to the thought that you can’t eat carbs, especially at the beginning of the day, when you really need energy!  belVita is one of my new breakfast and snack favorites; I’ve purchased 6 boxes since this initial review!
