Alpen Light bars no longer a Healthy Extra B choice #SlimmingWorld

April 17, 2014

Alpen Light bars have been enjoyed by many slimming world members as part of their Healthy Extra B allowance under the Extra Easy plan, however, it has been announced that Weetabix has made alterations to the recipe making them no longer a Healthy Extra B choice.

The full statement released by Slimming World:

You may have heard via Facebook, or in a group, about a recent change to Alpen Light bars. We became aware of the changes earlier this week and we know that any change to a Healthy Extra choice is a hot topic for members and Consultants alike. So our Food Co-ordination team here at Head Office have been in touch with Weetabix, the company that makes the bars, to find out the facts.

Weetabix has confirmed that Alpen Light bars have been revamped – they’re using a new recipe which contains more calories than the previous version, and considerably less fibre. As a result of the changes, Alpen Light bars can no longer be counted as a Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice. The 2 Healthy Extra choices for this product which appear on page 28 of the Food Optimising book will not appear in future Food Optimising books or other directories.

The new bars are rolling out into Asda first, followed by other supermarkets. It will take some time for the new recipe Alpen Light bars to make it into supermarkets so members may still be able to get hold of the old bars for a while yet, but we wanted to make you aware of the change as soon as possible.

As a guide, the new style bars say ‘Now… even more delicious!’ on the front of the pack and the higher calorie figure is also displayed on the packaging.
