“A recipe change disaster”

★☆☆☆☆

written by MichaelMiller286 on 18/01/2024

Having been a fan of Oatibix for many years, the latest change to reduce the oat content in favour of added niacin just does not work from a taste or texture perspective. The cereal no longer absorbs milk in the same way leaving the centre completely dry and sawdust-like. To be fair it is better than sawdust but only just! I can only hope the producers revert to the original recipe, or perhaps Lidl or Aldi might bring out a product based on the original recipe at half the price - I’d buy it

I couldn’t agree more. I had mouth cancer, Weetabix was too hard for me after extensive surgery but oatibix was ideal for me. It absorbed the milk making it soft, no chewing needed. On opening my packet of ‘new receipt’ oatibix I thought a mistake had been made in the factory-it looks just like weetabix and it doesn’t taste anything like the’old’ oatibix. I don’t like it at all so goodbye oatibix, you have served me well over the past 8 years but it’s scrambled eggs for my breakfast from now on

“Yuck,yuck,yuck”

★☆☆☆☆

written by 51Forbes on 18/01/2024

The instructions for writing this review suggests that the reviewer go into plenty of detail. I might find this difficult as the new recipe it is completely revolting. I can find nothing good to say about it. I have tried all ways to get it to a palatable consistency but have either achieved a baby food goo or a completely dry dish of cereal. I have been eating Oatibix original for years. I will not be eating it anymore. Please go back to the original!

“Just not the same”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Chrissyarry68 on 11/05/2023

What have they done to it. After buying 3 pks of 24 I feel I've been done. They look different they taste bland and as soon as you put milk on the turn into a thick goo. Absolutely awful. Wont be buying no more

“What have they done to it?”

★☆☆☆☆

written by McCartylt153 on 23/09/2022

A once decent cereal is given a bland, disgusting flavour with a funny after taste. Don't they taste test? Don't forget to add plenty of raisins and walnuts.

Quite agree, I also bought three boxes as it is not always easy to find.
The 'new recipe' is not good. The taste has completely altered, it smells stale, and the after taste is horrible. Please revert to the original recipe. As a wheat intolerant person I used to enjoy Oatabix, and it was a good alternetive to Weetabix. No raisins please!

“Eat within 30 seconds!”

★★★☆☆

written by 126Henderson on 17/08/2022

If you can manage to arrange this in a small bowl with the biscuit standing up and milk half filling the bowl - and eat the contents within about 30 seconds, you might enjoy this cereal as it stays light and crunchy. If you prefer something veering between cold porridge and cement, by all means leave it a bit longer! The latter is revolting to me, so all other activity has to be dropped to eat this cereal fast enough!! I’m sure it used to have a much more interesting texture, so am disappointed that the recipe seems to have been changed so much. That said, I appreciate having an oat based cereal - but this over refined product may have a countering effect on the blood sugar benefits that beta glucans can usually provide through oats.

“Ruined with the Unnecessary Addition of Niacin ”

★☆☆☆☆

written by 231Taylor on 20/07/2022

I loved Oatibix, ate it for years but recently after eating it, I’ve been getting stomach cramps and a hot tingling sensation in my arms and sometimes a feeling as if my throat was closing up - obvious allergic reactions. Then I discovered the dreaded “New Recipe” sign written on the box and that the oat content had been reduced in favour of the addition of Niacin amongst others. Here’s what the literature has to say about Niacin: “Side effects may include diarrhea, headache, stomach discomfort, and bloating. High doses (50 mg or more) of niacin can cause side effects. The most common side effect is called "niacin flush," which is a burning, tingling sensation in the face and chest, and red or flushed skin.“ “The supplement has been linked with liver damage, can cause hypotension and might activate a peptic ulcer. Taking niacin also might worsen allergies, gallbladder disease and symptoms of certain thyroid disorders. If you have diabetes, niacin can interfere with blood glucose control.“

“Don't trust those pirates!”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Norbert58 on 15/07/2022

As a keen consumer of Weetabix thought I'd give Oatibix a try. Apparently they have introduced a 'new recipe' version of them and I hadn't tried the original ones so I can't compare. I've got to be honest, I thought they were awful. So bland I didn't even finish what I had in the bowl. I told my wife, who thought the same, to give the rest of the box to the mother in law. Ah well, back to good old Weetabix for me.

“Very disappointed with new recipe”

★★☆☆☆

written by Roberts137 on 23/06/2022

I loved Oatibix and have bought it fir years. I have a wheat intolerance so cannot eat Weetabix. I do not like your new recipe at all. Unfortunately, I won't be buying it again.

“Oatibix Ruined!”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Baskey7 on 12/04/2022

The new recipe has ruined what was my favourite cereal. It tastes more similar to Weetabix now and is nothing like the tasty and filling cereal that it was before. Will never buy again. Very disappointing.

“What have you done to Oatibix”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Daniels284 on 02/04/2022

We have been having Oatibix for years preferring the texture to Weetabix. Now due to 'new improved recipe' they are indistinguishable from Weetabix in both texture and flavour. Breakfast ruined will have to search for another brand closer to original Oatibix. If if ain't broke don't fix it comes to mind.

“Easy to prepare”

★★★★★

written by Rockyrowell on 01/02/2018

I tried these to get off wheat and really like them. I have them with loads of skimmed milk and a little sprinkle of Stevia. I don't think I drink enough liquid so lots of milk is good and the cereal isn't too thick.

“I love these, but then I like my Weetabix (or...”

★★★★★

written by Karen56778 on 19/11/2016

I love these, but then I like my Weetabix (or Oatibix!) soaked in milk and left for 10 mins in the fridge until they turn to rich thick cement : ) These add an extra creamy taste/texture - I often have 1 Oatibix and 1 Weetabix together as you get the best of both worlds that way - Weetabix have a more defined malty flavour but these make it all extra creamy.

“sloppy mush...used to be much tastier”

★☆☆☆☆

written by fran2013 on 17/03/2014

Just dissloves with milk then turbs into a sticky lump. Stick to granola or make your own muesli as whole oats are much healthier than ground up like this

“Absolutely terrible cereal”

★☆☆☆☆

written by on 17/04/2013

I bought these as a wheat free alternative to Weetabix and they are awful! Absorbs milk like nothing else and becomes a stodgy, lumpy horrible mess. I couldn't even stomach it with fruit or honey. Avoid!! Very disappointed.

“Awful cereal”

★☆☆☆☆

written by vhvet on 09/08/2012

Weetabix is my favourite cereal, I have it plain with milk but no sugar. I love porridge from oats in the winter, again no sugar. So, in theory, I should like Oatabix, especially as they're from the same makers as Weetabix. I tried Oatabix and they're horrible; they taste floury,and they are too sweet. Steer clear of this cereal.

“Look like compressed sawdust”

★☆☆☆☆

written by on 12/04/2012

Had two attempts at eating these (love Weetabix so thought these would be similar), but had to throw the whole bowlful away both times as they were so disgusting. Indeed threw the rest of the pack away into the garden, but even the birds didn't like them!! I imagine this is what compressed sawdust tastes like and I'm afraid I cannot find anything good to say about them. A waste of money!

“I love Weetabix and when out shopping saw Oatibix and...”

★☆☆☆☆

written by on 18/01/2011

I love Weetabix and when out shopping saw Oatibix and thought I would give them a try.
First impressions were good,lighter than Weetabix with an almost golden look to them. I found I had to put a lot more milk on them in comparison to Weetabix as they were rather tough to get the spoon into!
Sprinkled with a little sugar really didn't help with the flavour for me. I can only compare them to glorified cardboard! I found the taste awful, very manufactured and chemically. I had my husband try them also and he experienced the same thing.
I was not impressed, the rest of the box was quickly disposed of.
