Review: Lidl Crownfield Muesli Cereal Bars


Crispy chewy cereal bars with no added sugar... and no added honey. 8 bar multipacks mean these are great value. The lack of added vitamins means there's no danger of animal-source vitamins making these unsuitable for vegans.



These cereal bars are very German style, with puffed cereals and cornflakes featuring strongly. The sugar-free syrup around the cereals is clear, soft and just a little bit sticky.

The absent sugar is replaced by maltitol, a sugar alcohol. Maltitol has 75% of the calories of sugar, but is only 75% as sweet, which means manufacturers probably use more of it... cancelling out any calorie gains. It doesn't rot your teeth though, so your dentist will approve of these bars.


Sugar-free or not, these bars are sweet. We really loved the hazelnut and almond flavour, which has a lovely toasted-nut flavour and a great texture. The texture of the apple flavour is somehow more chewy (a bit over-chewy) and the apple flavour is tart and tastes artificial (it's not), which meant we loved these a lot less!

Seek out the hazelnut and almond flavour bars - they're tasty and great value. Give the apple ones a miss.

The Good: Crispy, chewy, great hazel/almond flavour
The Not-so-good: Odd apple flavour
