Best you try, you say. There are shades of wheat breakfast biscuits, and VitaBrits would seem to be a deliberated marketeers creation.

Do NOT try Vitabrits.. they are bloody awful. Consistancy of cardboard but with less flavour. The Weetbix are OK.

I like Weetbix Multigrain.

Does that mean I'm not allowed into Aus any more?

Have courage Lassie, you'll need it.

And here's a tip to build up your courage to the gargantuan proportions you will need:

To individual Weet-Bix, apply a liberal slab of butter and thickly crust with vegemite. Take at moments of trepidation.

I can't find tandoori powder anywhere. All I can get it a paste. Does anyone know if it's called something else here.

Likewise with Harissa paste.

Cheers

So vitaBrits is no better than Weetbix which also tastes of cardboard. Back to square one.
