    I have 6 weetbix with warm milk and a tablespoon of sugar.
    This was my breakfast for years

    Ours don't look like the picture posted above. They're lighter in colour and a oblong shape.

    6! Woah. :) I've only ever eaten 2 at most.

    Yep, the Aussie ones are rectangular and can't be cut in half without flakes everywhere.

    has anyone attempted the weetbix challenge of eating one in a minute, raw with not fluids?

    Shame I can't eat them. It is an art to halve them. Kinda like slate. Gotta find the seam lol.

    I just got my first box. No milk with mine, please! I like them plain and sprinkled over cottage cheese.

    They're ridiculously expensive here in the states, so I won't buy another box. They're not that good.

    What is Weetabix? Like oatmeal?

    It's like shredded wheat, but softer and a little sweeter. IMO, it's better. It cannot hold up in milk. Turns to absolute mush immediately.

    Interesting. By the picture it must be one of those things that tastes better than it looks. Like shredded wheat though, must be high in fiber.
    No, it tastes even worse than it looks.

    Mmmm love Weetabix with hot milk and sugar sprinkled over the top on a cold winter morning. For me the trick is to put in just enough milk so the bottoms are soggy but the tops are crisp.

    Don't like shredded wheat.

    I also use Weetabix in recipes instead of breadcrumbs. ie, meatloaf.

    Cheers, h.

    And as soon as you pour milk on them, they disappear. It's like the melt or something.

    Here's ours. You couldn't cut them in half, they'd fall/crumble apart.

    That's them. And they're probably maybe 3 inches long.

    I prefer Oatibix, but either way it has to be very cold or warm milk for me - never room temperature.

    It has to be hot water or milk for me, I like them warm. Warm with a little sugar or strawberry jam (jelly?).
    I also like them crumbled up and sprinkled over yogurt.

    Weetabix wish a splash of cold milk and a sprinkling of sugar.

    Has to be eaten in about 10 seconds flat while there is still a bit of crunch.

    I have a colleague who used to have them with butter and jam as a kid - I was a little weirded out the first time they mentioned it, to be honest! Now I'm intrigued. :D

    With 1 cup of 2% milk, plus a half-handful of blueberries or raisins, with a 25g scoop of whey protein powder. Cold in the summer, hot in the winter.

    Some people do it with Vegemite. Honey is nice too.

    I am totally going to try cutting them in half! Thanks for the tip!

    I think the two halves could make a wonderful low calorie "ice-cream sandwich" with frozen yogurt in the middle.

    I eat mine this way : Take one biscuit, put in a bowl and fill with milk until it is almost covered. Microwave on high for one minute, till it bubbles up. The biscuit falls apart, the milk warms up and and you have a delicious hot porridge really quickly, a bran version of oatmeal. I must make it again :)

    Ok I had two in 1/2 cup of warm milk with some honey drizzled on top. So it was partly chewy partly crispy, and yes, as good as I remembered.

    Dunno about the filling factor though. I had a Greek yogurt too.
