Alpen, which is owned by Weetabix (I only found this out just recently), is best known as a line of muesli. When I was growing up Alpen was considered a luxury product. I’m not sure if it still is, but it’s definitely as cheap to buy now, as many of the alternatives.
So what about porridge?
Alpen recently launched a range of quick and easy (and tasty) porridge.
Their advertising for the new porridge range sums it up:
Bottom line – it’s got tasty ingredients, but it’s idiot-proof to prepare.
Preparation is pretty simple.
Grab a sachet. Open it and chuck the contents into a microwave friendly bowl.
(Word of warning, however, opening the sachets isn’t as simple as ripping them open. I tried that. I couldn’t open them. I ended up resorting to using a scissors.)
Fill the sachet with milk up to the line and then pour that over the porridge in the bowl. Mix it and then microwave it for 2 minutes.
2 minutes later you’ll have a very tasty breakfast!
Nutrition-wise the porridge is pretty good at only 155 calories
