I am disappointed with the diffusion of flavor (thin "layer'o'flavor" perhaps?) When I first enjoyed them over 5 years back, a lot of good grain flavor was backed with a rich malt body. A change or two, along the way. A change in formula, perhaps...?

If you look hard (on the Internet) you can find the British version of Weetabix which is organic. Frankly, to me there isn't much difference. But then I can't see much difference between this and Wheaties (which in turn isn't all that different than Total without all the extra vitamins "sprayed" on it). I like them all. I get what I can get when I can get it. (This from a man who was craving Wheaties in Vietnam and found Weetabix to be a satisfying substitute.)

The dollar store in our town sells a small box for a buck. I always have a box on hand. Delicious cereal.

I actually live very close to a Weetabix factory and sometimes I can smell the cereal when I walk out my front door. It's so good when they make Cocoa Crispies or whatever chocolate cereal they make.

Both my husband and I were very disappointed with the texture. We didn't eat it. Our dog didn't want it either. We used to enjoy it.

I'm on a special diet where carbs are limited and Weetabix meets my needs. I alternate it with Shredded Wheat or hot oatmeal. But Cheerios and Cornflakes taste better.

No more buying Weetabix now that they've compromised quality - no longer organic. GMOs no thanks!

I bought this one time hoping it might be similar to Ruskets, which I loved. I made the mistake of putting Weetabix in a bowl and adding milk, which, almost instantaneously created a disgusting paste. I guess it's something you have to grow up with but I'm just not one for mushy food. Perhaps CactusHeart's recommendation of eating it as a cookie...

Does WeetAbix contain G.M wheat ? I know that Sanitarium in Australia are proud to say they use no G.M products.

A wonderful cereal, with a delightful malt aftertaste.

All Weetabix sold in the North American market is produced in Cobourg, Ontario, Canada along with other excellent cereal products such as Grainshop and Alpen.

Just so you know: As of June 2010 **Weetabix is no longer organic** A letter from Barbara's (who produces Weetabix in the USA) confirms that it has been discontinued due to the "continual challenge to cost-effectively source organic ingredients". In other words, Barbara's is more concerned with profits than quality.

We ate Weetabix BECAUSE it was organic, I can't imagine eating it now, knowing it's ladened with pesticides. Yuk.

Yeeesh! I remember my initial reaction when I 1st tried these things. 1st of all, they LOOK JUST like HASH BROWNS... 2nd, it's extremely plain in flavor (you may as well be eating wheat out of a feedbag), no sweetness other than what you might add... 3rd, they're DRY AS HAYSTACKS!!! DRIER EVEN!!! THEN, once milk hits it, it disintegrates almost on contact *LOL* They're the cereal equivalent of rice cakes, if you know what I mean. Yecch! Oh, and did I mention they look like HASH BROWNS??? But I have to be fair, not ALL Weetabix cereal is bad. Weetabix has redeemed themselves to me recently with the offering of their honey-nut weetabix minis cereal. They're basically the same hashbrown shaped pieces (except bite-sized), but you'll forget all about it's off-putting shape when you get a taste of it... Wow! Sweet, delicious honey & peanut flavor throughout (though almond would've been MUCH better, IMO). It's really tasty, crunchy, but not as dry. Although it has the same difficulty of holding up to milk as it does Daddy Weetabix. DO NOT eat this in a BOWL w/milk! I recommend that you instead eat a serving alongside a glass of milk, ala milk & cookie style. Trust me, it's much better this way.

My grandfather was Bennison Osborne, the inventor of Weet-bix. While he wasn't South African, he did startup Weet-bix in South Africa. My mother, one of his daughter's, has provided details on this story at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weet-bix.
