Weetabix, crunchy or mushy?

If you eat them, how do you like them?

I like mine soaked in the milk until they're really mushy (almost drinkable) and I usually have them with mandarin segments. Yum Yum.

  • I have to drown them in milk & sugar so I don't eat them that often. That said, I do want to give the chocolate ones a go.

    For me, there's a 'goldlilocks' window of opportunity experienced whilst eating weetabix, it's roughly 20 seconds after full submersion in milk. You've got around another 20 seconds to wolf 'em down before they become overly mushy.

    Those new choc full size 'bix are the business.

    With honey.

    3 weetabix, acacia honey and lashings of semi-skimmed milk.

    The mini ones - they stay crunchy in milk for quite a while.

    Mushy - not sure about mandarin segments though.

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.

    Before a ride I'm not adverse to also adding sultanas, runny honey and muesli. A proper rebel I am. :wink:

    My missus eats them buttered :shock:

    ... and now she's got my offspring at it too. :cry:


    I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.

    Has to be boiled milk, a healthy sprinkling of sugar and mushy - eaten with 30secs of hitting the milk!!

    Mushy??? More like totally sloppy with meusli and figs/dates/apricots/prunes. Not a breakfast, more an underpinning for the rest of the day.

  • hennezhennez Posts: 255
    they have to be sort of half mushie on the bottom but still have a bit of crunchieness.... :wink: you've just got to pour hot milk sort of underneath them then down them as quick as you can. no more than three at a time :D:D

    Warm milk, sultanas, chopped hazlenuts (for the bit of crunch) either a drizzle of heather honey or brown sugar :D

    Peckish now!

    Definitely crunchy, looks toooo much like something else when mushy. :oops:
  • crunchyish.

    post ride routine within seconds of walking through the door is always something like:

    1. pour milk on 2 weetabix
    2. eat lump of dark chocolate quickly
    3. drink 80% of milk off weetabix
    4, eat slightly crunchy weetabix quickly before soggyness ruins them
    5. neck a pint of soda water and Pomegreat cherry/pomegranate juice

    i'm usually thinking about the weetabix a long way before i get home, i spend more time thinking about/planning breakfast than i care to admit to normal people actually, breakfast is awesome.
