“The oat is the Horatio Alger of cereals, which progressed, if not from rags to riches, at least from weed to health food.”
Waverley Root, ‘Food’ (1980)
I was sold at the mention of eating snacks made from oats. Oat spells Fibre, Healthy and Low Calories. Without a doubt, I fished out MYR 11 from my purse and purchased a box of Date & Fate. All in the spirit of trying to Eat Right and also in helping to boost my staffs side income. Hehe..
The product was appealing and nicely packaged. I don’t really get why it is called likewise. Is it supposed to mean that oat and chocolate are meant to be together? I was excited to see the insides!
Each box has 50 mini packets of oat weighing about 7g per pack. I gasped in horror at first looking at the nutritional facts label. I was like,
100grams = 2046Kcal ??!!!
But then I braced myself and read the labels again. It was in KILOJOULE and not Kcal. I was a million times more relieved afterwards. So its,
100grams = 489kcal
Phew! Even myfitnesspal.com is counting.
Each mini packet had this one mini oat. Which you could munch or swallow whole within seconds! It tasted “chocolate-y oat-y” and I loved it. Next task would be to refrain myself from tearing open another mini packet.
Note : I don’t sell this product. Kindly do not ask me to ‘PM’ you the price.
