I was recently offered the opportunity to try belVita breakfast biscuits and I thought they sounded nice. So, I said yes. They contain no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, and no artificial flavors or sweeteners. Plus, they have 18-20 grams whole grains per serving and are a good source of fiber and four B vitamins! The biscuits are available in Blueberry, Golden Oat and Apple Cinnamon with each individual package of four crunchy biscuits portioned for breakfast!
So, I knew they were healthy for a quick breakfast option (which is great for this busy student teacher). However, I was curious how they would actually taste. I initially tried the Apple Cinnamon. It is really tasty. I like that it has a nice, smooth taste to it. You do get bits of apples in it, but they are spread out. The cinnamon I noticed was not over-powering like it can sometimes be. Next, I tried the Golden Oat since I was drinking some chocolate milk. Haha! I have to say, I think it was a good combination. The Golden Oat has a sweet taste, but it’s not one that is easy to describe. It definitely goes well with a sweet drink. I also really like the Blueberry ones. It’s nice to have a bit of blueberry taste in the biscuit.
I will say that these biscuits are kind of dry. I mean with all of their whole grains and fiber, they are filling. However, you definitely need a drink to go with these. I think milk or coffee goes wonderfully with it. I like the crunchiness of the biscuits, too. It is similar to eating a cookie, for me. However, these are healthier and are meant to be eaten for breakfast. So, they are a win-win type of thing. Now, one lucky reader will have the opportunity to try all three new belVita breakfast biscuits!
