Recently I was offered the opportunity to try belVita Breakfast Biscuits, one of Nabisco’s latest products.
ABOUT BELVITA BISCUITS
To help Americans fuel up in the morning, Kraft Foods worked with nutritionists to create belVita Breakfast Biscuits that provide nutritious sustained energy to help fuel your body throughout the morning. The sustained energy release results from a combination of carefully selected ingredients and a special baking process that helps preserve the integrity of the grain so that the carbohydrates are slowly released in the body. Each individual package of four crunchy biscuits is portioned for breakfast, has 18-20g whole grains per serving and is a good source of fiber and four B vitamins. Additionally, belVita Breakfast contains no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, and no artificial flavors or sweeteners. belVita Breakfast Biscuits can be enjoyed as part of a balanced breakfast with a piece of fruit and a serving of fat-free or low fat dairy – such as a banana and a yogurt. belVita Breakfast Biscuits are available in Blueberry, Golden Oat and Apple Cinnamon.
While breakfast biscuits are new to Americans, they have been enjoyed by Europeans for years. Kraft Foods introduced its first breakfast biscuits in France more than a decade ago and now sells belVita biscuits in more than ten countries including Belgium, Czech Republic, Portugal, Hungary, Poland, the United Kingdom and Brazil.
I received samples of belVita Biscuits in the Blueberry, Apple Cinnamon, and Golden Oat varieties. One box of biscuits contains five packs of four breakfast biscuits. The biscuits are thin and crunchy. I found them to be very tasty, and perfect with either a glass of milk or a cup of coffee. I’m torn between Blueberry and Apple Cinnamon for my favorite flavor. And, as it turned out I liked the Golden Oat a lot more then I expected to – I didn’t expect to like it at all. I like that there are four biscuits in each package, because it means I can take a package with me and eat them at my own pace as a breakfast or as a snack. The portability is terrific because it means I can take them with me on days where I want something to eat in the morning but don’t have time. They’ve been perfect for the days that I have a morning full of classes. It times out perfectly, I can eat one on the way to school, one in between each of my classes, and one on the way home since by then I’ve missed lunch.
belVita Breakfast Biscuits are now available on U.S. store shelves nationwide in the cookie/cracker aisle. One box retails for approximately $3.69.
ONE winner will receive a prize pack including 1 box of each belVita Breakfast Biscuits flavor, a custom belVita tote created by fashion designer Anna Hovet (photo attached) and travel coffee mug.
