Just read that article NanaSue. I have started on last packet of weetabix so will hopefully be able to get some when I go shopping later - looks like it is just the minis at the moment :-)

Back in the 1990's I used to own two ex-racing greyhounds and they loved Weetabix for the breakfast.

I live down the road from the Weetabix factory and the lovely smell sometimes in the mornings. :-D :-D


Lyndi Report 22 Apr 2013 20:52

They said on local news that ordinary weetabix is not affected so that's me happy :-D

If cereal crops are low it will affect prices, but once they have increased in price, I bet they don't go down far again. I like Weetabix too.
